What are springtails, exactly? Here are some educational aspects of springtails:

  • Springtails are not damaging, but they may be bothersome nuisance pests.
  • Springtails, thankfully, do not bite or sting humans.
  • Springtails often live in flower pots in homes, especially if moisture is high.
  • Springtails love living around wet areas like dripping pipes and standing water.

How Springtails Can Be A Nuisance In Your Home

Springtails are not aggressive pests and do not sting, bite, or cause damage to homes. However, springtails possess high reproduction rates, and it can be disconcerting to find a swarm of them in your houseplants or near plumbing sources. Springtails are sometimes mistaken for fleas, causing concern for homeowners. Springtails can also be hard to control because of their fast reproduction rates and their eggs are tiny. While it may appear that a DIY effort has eradicated springtails, they can return with a vengeance later.

All-Safe Pest & Termite is your ally against a springtail infestation in Plano. We know how to handle all sorts of pests, and we stand ready to assist you in all of your pest control efforts. 

Simple Tips To Prevent Springtails In Your Home

Springtails usually come into homes when water sources entice them there. Once inside, they can breed rapidly and spread into different rooms. Here are some simple tips to prevent springtails from coming into your house:

  • Eliminate leaks: Springtails love leaking plumbing. You see a leak; they see an oasis.
  • Ensure proper drain functioning: Backed-up drains make wet areas that springtails love.
  • Use low-water houseplants: Plants that like wet soil attract springtails, who like it too.

These are some simple tips to help reduce the chances that springtails will come into your house. Unfortunately, springtails in Plano are resourceful and often come in despite your best efforts. If this happens to you, call All-Safe Pest & Termite immediately. We can help you get rid of them and help keep them from coming back. 

How To Eliminate Springtails In Your Home

Springtails can prove challenging to fight for homeowners. Generic DIY methods often fail because springtails can easily reinfest homes when their hidden eggs hatch. With their high reproduction rates, springtails do not take long to return to their former population size. Also, springtails tend to occupy several different areas of homes simultaneously, and it is easy to miss hidden populations with DIY efforts.
