If I see a lot of pests around and under outside movable concrete pool statute on the ground. Should I get rid of the statute ( medium size)? It’s made out of some hard material but not concrete. I think it’s even hollow. I know I see springtails on and around it and under it. I usually spray there with regular pesticides. I know one thing I’m pro-active here because I don’t ever want them in my house again. It’s only four years old.
I think it would be wise to either treat with the Deltamethrin Dust the inside of the statue or remove it. If it’s hollow, I wouldn’t be surprised if the springtails are living inside the void. They do love moist, dark spaces and this fits the requirements big time. And being proactive is the best approach as explained in our springtail control article.
