Springtails are very small insects that have become a major problem. I mean MAJOR problem. The past weeks have brought upon us excessive rains. This has in turn allowed springtail populations to explode! Springtails require a large amount of moisture. June 2015 has delivered it. Insects as we all know do not have a baby or two at a time they have hundreds! And, boy, have the springtails benefitted. Springtails do not bite, nor do they chew your house down but they are a major nuisance. They proliferate and go wherever they choose whenever they choose. This can lead to many uncomfortable situations in your own home. Springtails ARE NOT readily susceptible to current pesticides and therefore require many treatments to be fully effective. Springtails can be eliminated but it will take some time (and patience).
