Would Drain Gel work for Springtails in a bathtub drain?


Drain Gel is not labeled for any insects specifically but is used to treat organic matter build-up in sinks, drains and garbage disposals where insects will thrive for food and moisture. Springtails should not actually be coming from any drain in the home unless there is a crack in a pipe allowing them access. Rather, what you are experiencing is springtails that are detecting the moisture in the pipes, and traveling in wall voids and around pipe edges to try to access the water, which is when you find them in bathtub or sink drains. We would recommend looking over our guide on How to Get Rid of Springtails to see what areas around your home need to be assessed for moisture and what you can do both chemical and non chemically to deter or eliminate the population.
