Springtails are minuscule insects that are grayish in color. Hence their name, Springtails have a tail appendage that tucks under their abdomen and acts as a spring, allowing them to jump. These pests do not pose any health risks but are a nuisance in an infestation, causing stress and annoyance. Preventing such an infestation can be challenging due to their small size, but can be attempted by dehumidifying one’s home, repairing any leaks, and sealing exterior cracks. For a comprehensive treatment plan, call your local pest control professional.
