Bugs on Chinese Lantern Plant

Anna827 added on April 14, 2018 | Answered

Could someone help me ID these bugs and any possible way to get rid of them? I have wiped down the leaves a couple times and repotted in new soil/pot but they have come back. None of my other plants around it seem to be infested. Thank you!

They don't seem to be doing any damage. Of those that you listed, I think they may be Snow Fleas.

I'll make a few guess but if, on closer inspection, there is no match, repost with a close-up of the insect and what plants you find it on. Is it doing any damage? Black aphids, fungal gnats, spider mites and a harmless springtail called a snow flea are common.
