Springtails are tiny insects found in the soil. They can cause damage to garden plant seedlings including brassicas.
Springtails are tiny (1 mm) brown to black insects found in the soil around the roots of some plants. They never grow wings. Some species are elongate and some have quite spherical bodies. They are named springtails because they have a tail that can act as a spring and make them jump in a flea like manner. In moist conditions development can be rapid. A population explosion can cause severe damage to plants and on occasions the insects migrate onto paths and even indoors.
