Small, wingless insects which usually live in soil but occasionally come indoors, into damp kitchens, cellars and outbuildings. A leaping organ on the end of the abdomen provides the “jump” which gives them their name.
REMEDY: Springtails do no damage and control is rarely necessary. Removal of the source causing the damp they require to survive will cure the problem. A short term solution is to use an insecticide aerosol or powder labelled for the control of crawling insects.
