Can PT221L be sprayed down the drain where springtails appear in the sink?

Springtails are appearing in my tub and sink. They may be coming from my septic tank.


PT 221L cannot be sprayed down drains. Springtails would not be coming from the drains unless there is a crack somewhere in the pipes that allows them to get in.  Most times people see springtails coming out of the drains after they are just gone down to get moisture. Springtails indicate that there is a moisture issue because they breed in walls or under slabs where a moisture issue may exist.  Typically, pesticides alone will not take care of a springtail problem.  It is required to fix whatever moisture issue is causing the problem. Please view our article "How to get Rid of Springtails". This article contains everything you need to know to treat for springtails.
