Satisfied Customers
Used the company for over 5 years now and very happy with the service. They come regularly and will have always come the next day anytime we have seen a scorpion inside the house. Sprayer Kyle H. did a great job at the house (acct 81060) today. He asked what bugs we've had problems with (and where) and seemed to make adjustments to his plan--reps from other companies I've used in the past treated it like a race to see how quickly they could spray the perimeter of the yard and then get back in the air conditioned truck.‎

What Do Springtails Do?

Springtails are so-named because of their sharp projection at the tail end called a furcula. They snap this appendage down on a surface to suddenly spring themselves into the air. Springtails are tiny insects that thrive in damp locations. They live in the soil, in leaf mold, under bark, in decaying logs and on the surface of freshwater pools. When found in structures, their presence may indicate excessive moisture conditions in walls or crawl spaces, under sinks, or around indoor plants. Springtails are harmless to humans, although allergies and dermatitis have been reported in some people sensitive to their presence.

Interesting Facts About Springtails:
