Springtails are unusual pests with the capacity to infest our properties and homes by numbers. Due to their ability to hop, many individuals mistake these parasites for fleas.
Some differences between springtails and fleas:
Springtails are soft-bodied bugs with a gray appearance. Adults reach a maximum size of around 1/16 of an inch. The furcula is concealed behind the abdomen of the springtail.
When a springtail gets afraid, it injects fluid into the base of its furcula, causing it to strike the ground and propelling it forward.
Springtails are not directly harmful to people and do not cause any damage. Neither are they destructive. They do not harm the flora around our homes or the structure of the homes themselves.
However, they have the potential to become a significant source of nuisance.
They come in enormous numbers, are tough to get rid of, and even the tiniest amount of wetness has the ability to entice them into your yard and/or into your house.
Springtails have found their way onto your property because they have discovered that it provides an environment that is conducive to their needs in terms of food and reproduction.
These little pests eat things like decomposing plants, fungi, molds, and algae, all of which are widespread in garden areas, the soil near foundations or pools, or low-lying regions that gather water in your driveway or lawn. They can also be found in areas where there are pools of water.
Any home or property that has moisture problems has the potential to become a breeding ground for springtails and other pests that have a great demand for moisture.
