Ground covers, mulch and barks

Hi there, can I sprinkle these granules on ground covers, mulch or barks? Do they have to be applied when it's dry or can I apply them when when it's wet out too? I have problems with springtail outside of my home but they are making their ways into my home thru the cracks!


Using a 25 lb. bag covers 5,000-10,000 square feet. You can use them as a broadcast or a perimeter treatment directly around the structrue of the home. It is recommended that you water the granules in after application. When treating for springtails, moisture is the biggest contributor. If you can remove the moisture, the springtail population will go down. Please let us know if you have any further questions.
