    springtails are like fungus gnats. never quite sure where they come from you just find them one day. they are an extreamly common critter in most any moist habitat. ive found them around here under rotting logs and such. once yah got them i dont think you will ever be completely rid of them short of mass use of pesticide which prolly wont be good for your plants.

    dont do anything. Perfectly harmless, and it would be a waste of money to try and get rid of such a harmless creature.


    Its a wonder springtails are so abundant and colonize new areas as quickly as they do considering their shoot-in the dark method of reprodction. The males leave tiny sperm packs on the ground or upright on a minute string, and the sperm is only released if a female happens to brush against the sperm pack during her travels. the females do not seek out the sperm packs or anything, and the males randomly lay them, regardless of location or lilkelyhood of a female passing through the given area.
    that makes no logic
