Camel Crickets -- Raleigh Pest Control

  • Monday, December 05, 2016

What Are Springtails?

  • Wednesday, September 14, 2016
Springtails, a common pest here in the Raleigh/Durham triangle, are so small they often go unnoticed. They are sometimes found on countertops, inside bathtubs or sinks, and on windowsills. They are light colored, very small, and if you try to touch one they will spring into the air by way of its spring-like tail (the furcula) that it keeps folded under its body. Springtails can suddenly appear...
