what would you recommend on how to treat spring tails?
you didn't say where the problem is and what kind of springtail you have. since most are small and are hard to notice i will assume they are on cement slabs like front entrances or patios. springtails are more of a nuisance than harmfull. and might not be metioned on most labels
i would do a perimeter spray around the structure with a bifen product. spraying all mulch and up 1 foot up on the structure as well as any cement pads.
ps i use to work in poughkeepsie and lived out on whaley lake
We use Talstar on them rascals. 100% kill.
I wondered what you are talking about when I read this thread. Googled it, have never seen those things before in my life (or have never taken the time to look)
Hi DA -- Yep, springtails are a nuisance bug. They even get inside buildings. We have two motels that have us spray a couple times a year for them. We spray the perimeter of the buildings as well as about twenty feet out onto the grass. The indoor pest control guys spray inside.
