RATE OF APPLICATION: 4-8 ounces per drain per week until the problem subsides.

Is this safe to use in septic tanks because I have the springtails coming up in the master bathtub and I have a septic tank.

I didn't get an answer via e-mail for some odd reason. I might be interested in this Survivors item, but what are the active ingredient(s)?

Do I use the survivors before the pt-221 or after? Thanks.

Hello – We have Survivors and many of your products. Is Survivors safe to use in an older basement floor drain? We are battling these suckers and I think this is their last place of moisture in the house. There is a large stone on top of the drain holding the dehumidifier and water softener hoses in it. They seem to be on this stone. I just found 15 or so of them. Thanks in advance!

I thought the bugs we have were fruit flies but after reading the article I got this link from I now believe they are springtails. The question I have though is what products do I need to treat our garbage disposal? My guess is from reading the article is that they're living in the sludge that builds up inside it, but now I also noticed them coming up out of our bathroom sink. The building we live in was built in 1953.

I have springtails in the master bathtub. I want to use the items suggested but am worried about harming my cats. Is it safe if they were to be around it?
Thank you,

Springtail Relief! I've been fighting a Springtail infestation in my home for the past several months. I have a Pest Control company come and spray the house inside & out 6x/yr and they came in and dumped "stuff" down the drain and sprayed for Springtails but nothing offered any relief. I bought Phantom, Cykick, and Drain Pipe Treatment, used them all 3 exactly how the website indicated and I noticed an immediate improvement. With continued use, I no longer have an issue in 2-3 of my bathrooms. And I envision the Springtails in my remaining bathroom will be eradicated with a little more time. I am really impressed with these products and will continue using them.

I have phorid flies in my house. I do not know where they're coming from. I recently got new Plumbing so I don't believe I have a leaking pipe. I have never seen them come out of any of my drains.. I do have a septic which I had emptied in May of 2016. The home is a mobile home put on the property in 1994. I just moved there in May. So I do not know if this problem was already there before I moved in. I do recall seeing maybe one or two random bugs but I thought they were nuts and it was at the opposite end of the house which they are not at the opposite end of the house anymore. I have looked everywhere inside my house for these bugs. They appear but I cannot find out where they are breeding period. Please help as I am desperate. I have noticed them in 1 bathroom for the most part and also flying around my kitchen and dining room area. But I also see random flies in a few other rooms. But not as many as I have seen in one bathroom and it seems my kitchen. I am so frustrated and I do not know how to get rid of these.
