What kills springtails instantly?
- Springtails are small insects that are harmless but can be a nuisance when they gather in large numbers inside structures where there is excess moisture.
- Apply D-Fense Dust indoors to treat springtails and a broadcast and perimeter treatment of Supreme IT to eliminate outdoor infestations.
How do you stop a springtail infestation? Letting soil dry completely as possible is the best way to deal with infested pots already in the home. Sprinkle Safer Brand diatomaceous earth on potted soils to help them dry and to repel springtails. If infestations in potted plants persist, use a non-toxic, biodegradable soil drench to kill and repel the bugs.
Will springtails ever go away? If this happened during the construction of your home, it is possible that you have a moisture issue within your walls. This will eventually go away on its own in a few years through the process of heating and cooling the inside of your house; and those little springtails will likely go away on their own as well.
Does bug spray kill springtails? Sevin® Insect Killer Granules work above and below the soil line to kill and control springtails. Apply the ready-to-use granules with a standard spreader in a 5- to 10-foot band around your foundation and other targeted areas.
