How to keep little black bugs from growing indoor plants

Hi, I have a small question about fleas on my indoor potted plants, specifically a spindly plant called Black Flag. I did a search but found nothing helpful.

The white bugs are definitely not whiteflies or mealybugs. If I remember correctly, they are a small, black, flat bug. They don't bite. They probably eat the plant roots but I don't think they cause harm. Their numbers appear to have increased and they are not moving very fast. I don't know what to do. Do they have a name, and if so, what is it? They are not whiteflies, according to the web.

I don't have fleas, I'm asking what kind of bugs your black bugs are, since those two types of insects bite or have pincers which resemble those of fleas.

Another tip is to put the plants in direct sunlight, preferably during the morning hours.

Thanks, I already know about the direct sunlight thing, I've had very little success with that. And I'm pretty sure they aren't fleas, or they would bite, and also since I can see where they are crawling, and on the plant roots, I'm pretty sure it's plant roots.I really don't know what to do. I've seen bugs like them before, maybe in Asia somewhere but I can't remember where. The black bugs are moving on the soil, they don't crawl on the leaves. I'm pretty sure they are not eating the roots, that's what's bothering me the most. They look like flies but they don't crawl on the leaves. Thanks, for your help.

Right, that's fleas, they are tiny, they can't crawl, they bite and they are in hairless pets, such as cats and dogs. For someone who isn't familiar with them, it is difficult to distinguish fleas from the others. They also look a bit like mealybugs and white flies. I saw some big ants moving on the soil also.

Cricket is another name for the black bugs. You can view online a picture for example. They are the smallest insects of bugs category. Thanks, for your help.

I'm almost sure they are fleas. That is the worst part, but I don't think they are insects, but wasps or ants, or their babies. I'm moving them into a container of soil, and a lot of ants are following the big ants and they are now trying to get them out. I don't know what kind of insects they are. And thanks, for your help.

Thank you very much for this reply, and help. I'll try the container of soil thing, thanks. I don't see anything on the bug, on the image, but perhaps I can't tell from a digital photo. Maybe they are growing into the plant leaves, from the soil. We'll see.

As for the image of them, they are a bit smaller than blackfly but they are definitely not any insect I've seen. The blackfly image you showed is bigger than they are. Also, the baby bugs aren't sticking out that much from the mother bug, maybe there's a small gape like a baby's mouth, but maybe that's a feature and not something I'm seeing.I'm going to keep the image bookmarked and I'll use it when they are in an area I know them.

Those are small white ants, and the little black bugs are black ants, and from the same species. They both look like white ants to me. Thanks, for your help.

Those are small black ants. The bugs are smaller than your white ants, in the top of the picture they are not even 5mm long. The one in the bottom of the picture is 10mm long. The little black bugs can grow to 30-50mm long but they are usually smaller than those. Thanks for your help.

I'm almost sure they are fleas. That
