Q.There Seem To Be Fleas Around My Amaryllis Plants That I Have Indoors.

I have a number of amaryllis plants that I have accumulated over the years. I repotted the older ones with new potting soil. I have noticed that at least one has what looks like little fleas flying nearby the plant. It is as though my presence has disturbed it into flight.
