How long will Bifen IT take to eliminate springtails?
Bifen IT can take several minutes or longer to kill a listed pest that contacts the treated surfaces. It is mixed at 1 fl oz per gallon of water per 1,000 sq ft monthly to the exterior areas and quarterly to the interior crevices. Eliminating springtails can take time. 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. You should read our "How To Get Rid of Springtails" article for further information.
