The appearance of large numbers of minute jumping insects called springtails or “snow fleas” is common each winter and early spring in New Hampshire. They appear most often during warm periods when a thaw is in progress, congregating in large masses or piles near snow or at the edge of snow pools or slow-moving streams.
