I do understand the importance of cleaning debris piles and controlling moisture.
The Bifen XTS, Bifen I/T, and Bifen LP Granules are all great choices for outdoor treatments of springtails. They are typically the most common to be used and show great results on the populations. Occasionally customers will use a product like Tempo SC Ultra to try and drench soil sections where they suspect springtail nests to be located in the yard or around concrete areas such as patios/walkways/driveway, etc. Tempo has a slightly faster knock back of insects with the ingredient it contains, but the overall residual control would be the same as what you are familiar with using. Continue to try and reduce moisture as much as possible and pick up debris that they could nest within or under.
