Can jump almost 100 times their height
Springtails are minute, light- brown to cream colored creatures that measure from 0.25 to 6mm in length. Springtails receive their name from their ability to jump almost 100 mm high, and reside in moist, humid environments.
Springtails migrate if their habitat becomes too dry and this often results in thousands of springtails hopping into many homeowners’ residences through basement windows, crawlspace vents, and garage doors. If preventative measures such as repairing leaks do not work, a trained professional is the only way to get rid of these benign but troublesome pest.
