    Jimscott: Maybe your cats have springtails

    kentosaurs: sounds like you have springtails

    Of course you can always try to make a flea trap the either Peter or Barry talk about. At night put Pinguicula and Drosera on a tray under a very low wattage incandescent light. A night light perhaps 5-10 watts. The fleas are attracted to the light and heat of the bulb and get trapped.

    I actually use that exact same method to get rid of the fruit flies in my kitchen! One little light behind a net of D. binata multifida and most fruit fly issues are over.
    Trying to rebuild. Feel free to PM me with questions.

    if they are living in a plant pot they are highly unlikely to be fleas..........

    Oh I realize that. It's just that there were little hopping bugs in my pots a few years ago and they were considerably larger. I thought those were springtails. I never saw these things before and I could best equate their appearance to fleas. Hey, as long as they aren't harming my plants, I suppose I can live with them.
