Hi. I found your website http://www.bugspray.com/article/springtail.html when looking for what this small bug infestation we have is.
I’m in California. We had flooding of a wall this winter with the rains and I suspect the springtails in our garage are from a colony in the wall.
We have cats–what insecticide options do we have for springtail control, that won’t harm cats, please?
All the products mentioned in our SPRINGTAIL CONTROL ARTICLE can be used safely around pets. If you follow our guidelines in our SAFETY VIDEO’S, you’ll learn the most important thing is keeping them away during the treatment and afterward till it dries. This is usually less than an hour.
Based on the limited information I have about your problem, I think you should really start on the outside of the home. Put out the granules and the liquid treatment listed in our article. Alternatively, you can use the ECO GRANULES and the BUG PATROL RTS listed on our NON TOXIC PEST CONTROL site. They will work on springtails too and are what we consider to be organic.
Here are direct links to the products and information listed above:
