Collembola, like most other bugs, tend to flourish in the spring. We have had a warm, wet winter, and even though it’s only the end of February, they are more numerous. It’s more difficult to keep the population down, so try to be extra agressive. Also, try to keep your home as dry as possible. Humidity can make huge difference in the reproduction rate. We have numerous de-humidifiers around the house.
