You don't have any followers because you're not nice to people. Mel is nice.

It doesn't matter how superior your protocol is if no one does it.

Be kind and you can help lots of people who are suffering.

Even Jeans????

I found a nest... I pulled out the cheap rubber baseboards in my kitchen.... between the lino and the wall something that looked like soil from a few feet away spilled out. UGH! I sprayed it, but still got absolutely covered from head to toe. I think many were dead already since I've been spraying the baseboards, but I haven't been so itchy in ages. I filled the crevice with foam, they had even eaten away at the dry wall in one spot, and will be covering the foam with silicon.

Disgusting. No wonder I feel attacked at the kitchen sink and table.

Thank you to the person of the Bird Mites Yahoo Group who recommended that you pull up the baseboards and seal the crack between the wall and the floor. Gross. I knew the cheap plastic baseboards were harboring the little monsters in my old house, but it was a yucky apt with a lame landlord so I wasn't going to do anything there except abandon it. Some PCO said that he's seen loads of springtail problems - all in concrete slab houses with tile floors.

And I'm sorry but f*ck cheap ass 1970's redecoration. Worst decade for aesthetics ever. The only good thing to come out of the 1970's was punk rock. And f*ck springtails!

the problem with jeans is that they get within the deepest part of it but if you want to try it go ahead. Use lots of steam on your iron and be careful because they might jump on you will your doing this. I suggest you put something on your skin to keep them off if u can. Mineral oil helps or aveeno skin so soft.

I think it works you have to iron the jeans inside out, if you have a steamer it works better....

Fred, what were ur exact symptoms before? Did u have any sores? Thousands of black specks that sometimes pinched like a needle on ur skin? Happens to me a lot these days..a strong pinch on skin when I look there it is a tiny black dot sometimes smaller then this . As soon as I remove it the pinch is gone. Im not sure if the black thing is the fungus pinching me or the bug. Im still confused about it.

After researching, I finally found out these are not baby bed bugs because we don't have any adults. They are in the bed and couch because the air conditioners are next to the bed & couch, coincidentally on my side. They get in through the wall especially after the rain. I took a bath in bleach water last night to kill any fungus on my skin & scalp. Today I sprayed insecticide around the AC. No itching after the midnight bath. Crossing my fingers for tonight. By the way, I live in Indiana where there are 29 species, one newly discovered in Wayne County. I'm not delusional. By gosh if I am, lock me up right now.

Do you have a microscope? That's how I figured out what they were.

Hi Shelly:). Thank you so much for posting how to rid oneself of this insidious Hexapoda. I am very sick from Collembola and have been since first of July. After being admitted to two hospitals and seeing various doctors I had no diagnosis or cure. I tried many medicines & herbs, etc. Finally, a few days ago I found information you posted on another website. I feel hopeful for the first time in months! I am working on buying these products.
Luckily, I did not get this from my home, but that's about the only sortof good thing I can say ( I realize I have some here now). I had no idea that something like this even existed! Please know how thankful I am to you for sharing... Big blessings on you & your family:)

PS... Forgot to say that I pretty much knew what they were from beginning from reading about Morgellons study & looking at images of them. There were also other environmental clues. In my case, it is really sad that I wasted no time getting to ER and was admitted. I was told my wounds & bites were self-inflicted. Actually, I was told many other unbelievable untruths by doctors, sadly.

All Diatomaceous earth has silica dust in it. Silica dust is an extreme health hazard. It is essentially ground up glass and when you put it on your skin it gets stuck in your pores and messes up your natural detox function. It also causes grave resperatory illness. There is no way that if you are putting it on your skin or around the house that you are not breathing it. It has only been given as advice here by clueless people who don't read and don't understand it.

Silica
Silica, also known as silicon dioxide, is the most common mineral on earth. Inhaling dusts that contain crystalline forms of silica can cause a fibrosing interstitial lung disease called silicosis. Silicosis usually takes at least 10 years after exposure to develop. However, it can develop more quickly, especially after large exposures. Quartz is a common type of crystalline silica and is a large component of many types of rock. Inhalation exposure can occur in many kinds of work, including tunneling, quarrying, mining, construction, roadway repair and demolition, sandblasting or any type of work that breaks up quartz-containing rock. Cristobalite exposure can occur in foundry work as a result of heating amorphous silica. In addition to causing silicosis, crystalline silica exposure has been associated with pulmonary function impairment and COPD. Silica has also been classified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) as a known human carcinogen. Crystalline silica is thought to damage lung tissue in large part as a result of oxidant mechanisms, with freshly fractured crystalline silica is being more potent than aged materials. Silica-induced diseases can be prevented by reducing exposures. It is encouraging that deaths from silicosis have fallen from more than 1060 in 1968 to less than 170 in 2005.

People in here are not clueless they are desperate to get springtails out of their lives, so they can have a life. If u want to help don't criticise, come up with something that works, because personally I would risk having any poison side effects to stop getting springtails in my skin!!!!!!!!!!

Word.

I just love it when people say "Well you might get __________ disease from using __________ product."

I'm like... yeah, sure... name me something that's worse than having bugs crawl out of your nose. I'm not afraid of dying. I just don't want to die with bugs on me.

I've had some great success with mustard and turmeric scrab - it's based on something someone said on here... a native grandmother telling her to take aloe internally, and externally mix mustard powder, baking soda, salt and aloe into a spray. I had been doing mustard baths for ages - starting with Dr. Singha's (spendy)- and now I just buy mustard in bulk. I rubbed it on directly with some coconut oil - wow...

Now if I could just get them out of clothing and house! I'm giving up on jeans. I tried again tonight. I even steamed them. No luck. I feel fine... and then one infested thing ruins my whole night. Sigh.
