springtail bug

Zone 95131 | Anonymous added on August 24, 2019 | Answered

I recently got springtail infestation. Is this only seasonal? My yard has large area of weed blocker on soil and bark mulch or small stones on top of that. Can that be the cause? How should I deal with this problem? Thanks much for any advice.

    When you have springtails it means there is a moisture problem and when that is resolved, the springtails will disappear. They are often found in mulch. Here is more:
