We’ve had a very wet spring this year and our yard all around the house is mulched. We’ve actually encountered different types of mulch fungus from all the dampness, but we have been watering our garden since the rain has stopped.
I’ve noticed springtails popping up around my bathroom sinks. I’ve tried spraying bleach under the sinks and into the wall where the pipes run, but it hasn’t solved the problem.
My question is, are any of your products safe for cats. I have cats both inside and outside my house and can only use something that would not be harmful to them.
Thanks for your help.
If you go to the SPRINGTAIL PRODUCTS PAGE and click on any of the products we have listed, you’ll see a SAFETY VIDEO on each page telling you how to handle, mix and store our products. As explained in our video, nothing we have will pose a hazard to your cats if used properly and you keep them away from the area being treated during the application. And if you still feel uncomfortable even after viewing our videos, consider some of the alternatives listed in our NON TOXIC PEST CONTROL site.
Generally speaking, most all of the products at NON TOXIC PEST CONTROL are geared toward organic gardens. But they will work on other pests like springtails. The BUG PATROL is excellent to spray in the yard and should be applied over the ECO GRANULES. Inside, the MOTHERS EARTH DUST could be used in place of the DELTAMETHRIN DUST and the HOUSEPLANT INSECT KILLER can be used around the home as needed without being a danger to the cats. These organic options won’t last as long as their counterparts but they will work. In the end, you’ll end up having to apply more of them to get rid of the springtails but they are a viable alternative choice.
