I have an infestation of Springtails as a result of a yard that has accumulated years of leaf rot and covered in ivy. Of a house I bought 6 months ago. I have since cleaned up yard (removing rotting leaves, vines etc.) and spread Biden granules around property. They have moved into my home as well. I have been treating them indoors in numerous ways but have yet to completely get rid of them. I’ve had them identified by Entomologist and have confirmed they are indeed springtails. I have an intense allergy to them and they are incredibly irritating to my skin. Do you have any suggestions. Everyone I talk to and everything I read seems to have contradictory info and opinions. I have also tried to use a pest control company to no avail. I have researched and read more than I ever wanted to know about this pest but have yet to have success. I found info on your website regarding using other live insects and nematodes to rid of pests. Is there anything that has been found to feast on springtails? I would greatly appreciate any info you could share to help me with this overwhelming terrible problem. By the way this all started when I began cleaning and clearing our yard in March of 2016. As you can imagine, I am ready to get these pests out of my life or at Leary reduced to where we can all live in harmony together.:)
Thanks for your time. I look forward to hearing from you.
