Pest Control Slaters

Slaters


Slaters are usually nocturnal feeding on decaying vegetable matter or young plants. They are often found in wet areas of homes as they depend on moisture to keep the oxygen-absorbing gills under their bodies moist.



Springtails


Springtails (Collembola) are one of the main biological agents responsible for the control and dissemination of soil microorganisms. Springtails are a wingless insect that range in length from 1 to 10 mm. Found in all types of soil and leaf litter, they thrive in moist, dark places and feed on decaying plant matter and fungi. When found outside they serve as an important part of the ecological system and cause no harm to plants. When found inside, they flock to bathrooms, crawl spaces and soil of potted plants.

To deter Springtails from invading inside your home, keep mulch and compost piles away from the house as the moisture and dead plant matter attract them.
