Greenville, SC Springtail Control Professionals

Action Pest Services provides treatment for springtails. Springtails are small, hairy, jumping insects that sometimes can be found around air-conditioning units and pools. Springtails are known as “snow fleas” to some but are not actually fleas and they do not bite humans or pets. Springtails are common throughout the United States, and are active in the winter at the base of trees after a snow melt. Springtails feed on decaying vegetation around the home but can often find their way inside. Although springtails are not harmful to humans, an infestation can be unsightly and annoying.

Springtail Identification

There are several characteristics that help identify a springtail.

  • Springtails are usually between 1 mm and 2 mm in length.
  • Springtails are commonly black or brown in color.
  • Springtails have short, oblong shaped bodies, with six legs and antenna.
  • Images of springtails can be found from the National Pest Management Association »

Conducive Conditions for Springtails

There are a few conditions that can increase the chances of a springtail infestation:

  • Plants that cause shady, moist areas and excess vegetation or mulch around the home.
  • Warm, humid areas with excess moisture near food sources, especially bathrooms or basements.
  • Cracks in the foundation, siding, or window panes that serve as points of entry and allow insects to come in to the home.
