Hey guys.
I have had this zz plant for the past three years and it has been doing great.
I repotted the plant into a bigger pot about 4 month ago.
yesterday i was inspecting my plants and i noticed a hole at the base of the stem of my zz plant.
after i removed some of the potting medium i saw that there are some kind of small whitish bug lurking around .
I have no idea what this bug is and how to deal with it, but i think this bug is eating my plant!

thank you in advance.

It's hard to tell based on the photo but mealybugs aren't strangers to ZZ plants. I'd change the soil if it looks like a big infestation. Then take a q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol to remove live bugs or use a pesticide and spray a couple of times a week until you no longer see any.
