Q.Flying Bugs Coming Out From Household Plants’ Dirt

Zone North Bergen, New Jersey | Anonymous added on May 15, 2023 | Answered

Hello, I have household plants and from the dirt in which they are planted small little flying bugs come out. It seems that when the dirt is dry there less but when I water the plants more come out. What can I do to eliminate them. I have orchids, aloe vera and other households plants and they all have them.
