Springtails, also known as “snow fleas,” are a common household pest in Wisconsin that can survive cold winter temperatures. These tiny insects are black to grey in color. Springtails have no wings but use their tail-like abdomen to jump around. They primarily feed on dead plants and prefer moist areas, such as kitchens, bathrooms, basements, or potted plants.
