We have been finding a ton of these tiny bugs (pin head size or smaller) outside on our patios, outdoor tables, on the grill, etc.

What are they and how do we get rid of them?

These bugs are a type of hexapod called springtails (subclass Collembola). Springtails are often very tiny and hard to see without a lens, so I have to say you did a good job grabbing a fairly detailed picture of this one. Specifically, your specimen appears to be some species in the order Entomobryomorpha.

According to Wikipedia:

They can be best distinguished from the other springtail groups by their body shape… The Entomobryomorpha… contain the slimmest springtails [with]… long bodies. [They also have] well-developed furculae

Specific species:

Usually, IDing springtails is very difficult, but I believe your specimen matches a fairly widespread species called Entomobrya nivalis (aptly named the cosmopolitan springtail).

The description of this species matches yours fairly well. From Wikipedia:

The cosmopolitan springtail measures about 2 mm in length. Its color consists of a yellow or white background with dark pigment forming transversal bands along the third segment of the thorax and the segments 2 to 6 of the abdomen. The fourth segment of the abdomen has a U- or 11-shaped pattern that easily distinguishes this species from others in the genus Entomobrya+

Somewhat true to its name, this somewhat cosmopolitan species is found in temperate and polar regions across North America and Europe+. Adults typically live among lichens and trees (whereas young live in leaf litter), however, according to NC State Extension:

Rarely springtails may become exceedingly abundant and may congregate in heaps several inches high on driveways, sidewalks and poolsides.

So what exactly is a springtail??

In general, springtails usually feed on decaying matter, and -- you guessed it -- they're known for their ability to jump!

Springtails are so-called because they have a unique structure, the furcula, that allows them to jump for considerable distance relative to their tiny size. [source].

Those are Collembola, something in the line of this genus They are harmless to humans, usually live in the leaf litter and I don't know if there's really anything you can do to control them. Let's see if any expert in Collembola chimes in.

During Bloom, there are several species of caterpillars that can be found in commercial apple orchards in NY: the redbanded leafroller (Argyrotaenia velutinana ), various species of green fruitworms, and obliquebanded leafroller (Choristoneura rosaceana ). Although all of these species occur as larvae during Bloom, the overwintering stages of these species and early season biology prior to Bloom may be quite different.

The redbanded leafroller (RBLR) overwinters as a pupa within a folded leaf in the ground cover. Adults from the spring generation begin to emerge when apple trees are in green tip and lay eggs on the trunk and scaffold limbs of apple trees.

Redbanded leafroller adult

Most eggs are laid around the Pink bud stage but oviposition continues during Bloom. Eggs begin to hatch during the later part of the Bloom period. Therefore, small, early instar larvae may be present during Bloom. The RBLR in the late 1950’s was a serious problem in commercial apple orchards in New York State because larvae had become resistant to older insecticides such as DDT and lead arsenate. When organophosphate insecticides such as Guthion and Imidan were introduced into apple orchards in the 1960’s, this pest became very rare in commercial apple orchards throughout the state. Since we catch adults of this pest in pheromone traps placed in areas near commercial orchards and even inside commercial orchards, we know that RBLR are still thriving in wild, unsprayed habitats. In former times, almost all apple growers throughout NY applied at least one spray of organophosphates at pink, which probably killed adults. Currently, many growers are not applying broad spectrum insecticides before Bloom, so it is most likely that RBLR larvae in commercial apple orchards are now controlled primarily by Petal Fall sprays for plum curculio.

Mature larva of the redbanded leafroller

This pest could become serious again in NY apple orchards if larvae or adults were to become resistant to various types of commonly used pesticides.

Ten species of green fruitworms occur in New York, but only three of these are commonly found in apple orchards: the speckled green fruitworm (Orthosia hibisci), the humpbacked green fruitworm (Amphipyra pyramidoides), and the wide-striped green fruitworm (Lithophane antennata).

Green fruitworm larva feeding on newly set apple

Since the majority of green fruitworms found in NY orchards (60%) are the speckled green fruitworm, the other two are not considered to be problems. The speckled green fruitworm (GFW) overwinters as pupae and adults begin to fly about the time apple trees break dormancy. Eggs are laid during the Half-Inch Green bud stage of apple development, and the first larvae begin to appear around the tight cluster bud stage. Larvae are usually in the early to mid stages of their development by Bloom.

The obliquebanded leafroller (OBLR) overwinters as a second or third instar larva in sites on twigs covered by brown webbing called hibernacula, which are almost impossible to see in the field. The first larvae are usually visible around the Half-Inch Green stage of bud development and most larvae will have emerged from overwintering quarters by the middle of apple blossom. Many people are confused when they initially sample trees for OBLR larvae because the color of their head capsules is quite variable. All newly hatched OBLR larvae have black head capsules, but the color of head capsules of older larvae may be black, brown, or even have an olive-greenish cast.

Mature obliquebanded leafroller larva

Newly hatched OBLR larvae can be easily confused with GFW larvae because both species have black head capsules. However, after 1 or 2 molts, GFW larvae have light green head capsules, and, of course, develop the characteristic white speckles scattered over their bodies. In contrast, OBLR larvae remain pale green without any white marks on their bodies.

Sampling Larvae at Bloom

For most practical purposes, sampling for lepidopterous larvae at Bloom is really an exercise in sampling for only one species, OBLR, in most NY orchards. RBLR are extremely rare and have not been found in sufficient numbers to warrant control measures in any commercial orchards in New York State within the last 15㬐 years. GFW are also usually quite rare, and the only severe areas of infestation that have been observed during recent years were in a few commercial orchards in the Champlain Valley apple production region.

It is somewhat controversial about whether or not it is necessary to sample for OBLR at Bloom to determine whether or not chemical applications are needed. Unlike many other orchard arthropod pests such as mites, leafhoppers, rosy apple aphids, and tarnished plant bugs, chronic OBLR problems usually occur from year to year in the same orchards in localized areas regardless of the intensity of control measures applied during any particular season. Therefore, past history of the block with respect to previous severity of OBLR infestations may be as good a guide as sampling or monitoring techniques. However, it may be a good idea to sample blocks with no previous history of OBLR infestation, particularly if an orchard is nearby areas where chronic infestations of OBLR have been observed. The procedure for sampling overwintering OBLR larvae at Bloom to determine whether or not chemical treatments are necessary are described in the Pest Management Recommendations for Commercial Tree-Fruit Production and in the Apple IPM Sampling and Management Manual.

Factors Influencing Decisions for Control of Overwintering OBLR

There are two primary reasons to control the overwintering generation of OBLR: (1) To reduce early season fruit damage (2) To reduce population levels of the subsequent, more damaging summer generation.

Reduction of Fruit Damage In most years, almost all of the apples damaged by early season feeding from overwintering larvae drop prematurely from the tree. Assuming that the crop load of infested trees is normal, OBLR larvae usually simply act as biological fruit thinners and cause very little damage. However, during the last several years, growers have commonly observed increasing levels of fruit damage from the overwintering generation of OBLR. Traditionally, early season fruit damage has usually been less than 5% and probably averaged 2ש%. More recently, some growers have reported overwintering damage levels exceeding 10%, particularly during the 1997 growing season. A probable explanation for these elevated damage levels is that since efficacy of almost all insecticides against OBLR is declining, higher population levels of overwintering larvae are infesting orchards than in previous years, resulting in increasing numbers of damaged fruit observed on the trees at harvest.

Another factor to consider when deciding to treat for overwintering OBLR, is the effectiveness of currently available compounds in actually preventing early season fruit injury. Usually, it is impossible to completely eliminate fruit injury from overwintering larvae with insecticide treatments, even when multiple sprays are applied. Normally, the most effective chemical treatments only reduce this early season fruit damage by 40㬸%. One of the reasons for this relative lack of insecticide efficacy may be that it is very difficult to get OBLR larvae exposed to pesticides early in the season because they are usually tightly webbed inside fruit clusters or blossoms and not readily exposed to direct contact of insecticides or even feeding on external surfaces that were treated. Also, some young fruit may be damaged during late Bloom, when spray residues from prebloom sprays have degraded and additional sprays of most conventional insecticides cannot be applied because of their toxicity to honeybees.

Reduction of Population Levels of the Subsequent Summer Generation of OBLR — Previously, we have always said that the benefits of controlling the overwintering brood to reduce damage from the summer generation were not always apparent. Clearly, most growers in chronically infested areas continue to suffer severe summer damage (10㬐%) even after applying extensive early season control schedules against the overwintering brood of OBLR. There have been very few studies set up to actually estimate the effects treating different generations of OBLR on fruit damage. One of the best recent studies was conducted in Canada during the 1998 growing season. The results of this study are shown in the following table.

    Bug Identification: Tiny Bugs in Fairport NY - Biology

    There are 2 major genera of the Salicaceae Family these are the willows (Salix) and the aspens, cottonwoods and poplars (Populus). The pollen of both is allergenic (elicit allergies), and they share cross-reacting allergenic proteins. In other words, if a person is allergic to one of these trees they are more likely to show allergic reactions to the other trees in the same family and genus.

    Willows are pollinated by both insects (entomophilous) and by the wind (anemophilous). Willow trees have male and female flowers on different trees and they bloom primarily from March through April but can extend even into July in the Northwest parts of the U.S. Some willows are more likely to trigger allergies than others. For example, the pussy willow (Salix discolor) while it produces pollen is of NO allergic significance.

    Aspen, Poplar and Cottonwood trees are all wind pollinated with pollen release during the spring, typically March to May and beginning before the willows. The pollen is unscented and not “sticky.” No nectar is produced, so insects are not interested. There are both male and female flowers on separate trees. They produce much more pollen than willows that can blow in the wind for great distances. Some “ornamental poplars” are sterile hybrids that do not produce pollen and therefore ideal for individuals with allergies.

    Under the microscope these pollen grains are spherical in shape with mild elongation and usually 3 grooves. (They are groovy!)

    If you are concerned about tree pollen allergy, at Family Allergy Asthma & Sinus Care, allergy skin testing can identify which specific trees you are allergic too. There is no need to guess!

    I get lots of emails from people telling me what they’ve found. I want to hear from you too! If you’ve seen one please fill out this short report. Let me know if it was an albino or a white morph (albinos have red eyes). Also, give me very specific location information. We’re trying to map them and look at the abundance in urban and rural settings!

    Woodpeckers of North America

    How fortunate we are here in Western New York to have 7 different species of Woodpeckers living amongst us. Important in controlling insect populations, Woodpeckers are greatly served by the presence of dead trees, so leave them standing if they don’t pose a danger. Here’s a little information on each of our native Woodpeckers.

    Downy Woodpecker (Picoides pubescens): Our smallest woodpecker (at about 6″), the Downy is a common visitor to backyard feeders. You likely hear its location “peep” frequently as it seeks out insects in tree bark. Interestingly, the male and female “hunt” for food differently, with the male pecking holes into the wood and the female lifting up bark. This is due to variations in the male and female bills, the males with one that is stronger and longer this allows the pair to make the most of available resources. Males also sport a bright red spot at the back of the head. A suet or peanut feeder is a great way to have the Downy as a regular visitor, especially in Winter.

    Yellow-bellied Sapsucker (Sphyrapicus varius): One of the migrating Woodpeckers, this bird is second smallest at between 8 and 9 inches. Its belly is more a buff color than yellow and males and females are distinguished by the throat patch (males-red/females-white). Both genders have a red patch on their foreheads. Sapsuckers drill deeply into trees to exude the sap. While they do drink up some sap, there is also an ulterior motive. The sap attracts insects so a Sapsucker will “tap” the tree and then return a short time later to feast. They make regularly spaced and aligned holes on trees so it’s easy to see if a Sapsucker has been harvesting. Birch and Maple are among their favorites, but it is not uncommon to see them on fruit trees. In early Spring, watch for Hummingbirds following the Sapsuckers. The sap drawn by the Sapsucker is vital to “Hummer” survival before flowering begins and they feast upon the sweet liquid.

    Hairy Woodpecker (P. villosus): Looks almost exactly like the Downy except 1/3 larger at 9 inches. Also common, this species has a louder “peep” and often signals warning with a repetitive, steady call. Quite the scavenger, this Woodpecker serves trees well by devouring many destructive insects that live within them. Also easily attracted by suet and peanut feeders.

    Red-Headed Woodpecker (Melanerpes erythrocephalus): More of a rarity in our area, this migratory species is hard to miss, should you be so lucky to have one in your neighborhood. At about 10″, this Woodpecker has a solid, deep-red head, white underparts and black back (with white wing patches). It has a very long bill which is used to store nuts and acorns in deep crevices. They also feed while in flight, swooping across open fields in search of flying insects. Leaving dead snags and trees is beneficial for this species which they will use for nesting sites.

    Red-bellied Woodpecker (M. carolinus): Much more common than its Red-Headed cousin, the 10″ Red-bellied minimally migrates so can often be spotted in Winter here in WNY. Besides the usual insects, this one also enjoys nuts and acorns, plus wild fruit, and uses its long beak to cache food. The female is distinguished from the male by having red on only the back half of its head. The lower belly is where the red feathers occur and it is much more predominant on the male.

    Northern Flicker (Colaptes auratus): Our second largest Woodpecker, (

    12″) the Northern Flicker is more often heard than seen. However, if you’ve an ant hill on your property, don’t be surprised to find a Flicker dining excitedly. This behavior sets them apart from their cousins as they are the only Woodpecker to feed regularly on the ground. Flickers have a loud repeated “wacka wacka” call and a long, clear “whistle” in their vocal repertoire. They are easily distinguished from other Woodpeckers by their brown coloration and dark brown “bib”. Males have a larger, dark red patch at the top of the neck than do the females as well as dark brown cheek stripes. Interestingly, the Northern Flicker varies from east to west in its range. In eastern territories, the feather shafts are colored yellow where in the western areas, they are red. This is why the variety found in Western New York is also called the Yellow-shafted Flicker (see below). These birds are generally migratory in our area.

    Pileated Woodpecker (Dryocopus pileatus): The “king” of Woodpeckers in our area at

    17 inches. Most people are quite surprised at the size of this bird when initially spotted. However, like the Flicker, it is more often heard than seen and generally found in mature forests. However, if you have that type of habitat nearby, you can easily draw the Pileated to your property by leaving dead trees standing. Tracking Pileated territory is easily done by seeking out the large, rectangular cavities that this Woodpecker excavates in dead trees in its search for food, carpenter ants being among its favorites. The call is similar to the Flickers but has a different cadence and rises and lowers in volume. Males are distinguished from females by their red-striped cheeks.
