A week ago I noticed some small bugs crawling in our basesment which is
partially finished and carpeted.
Well, they are increasing in number and I am sitting here looking at a
few of them crawling on a white sheet of paper. At first I thought
they were fleas, but they don't seem to jump as far as fleas and these
are pretty easy to catch and squash with my finger. My recollection of
fleas is that they are not easy to catch, jump pretty far, and are hard
to crush with the finger. I think a flea is smaller than these things
I am seeing. I'm not sure though. I hope these are not baby termites.
These things definitely hop about an inch or two when i disturb them.
They are blackish in color with little antennaes in the front. One of
them just hopped all on its own without me even touching it.
This sucks! Do these things sound like springtails? They are about
1/8 inch long.
Time to call the exterminator here?
Thanks for any info,
