Booklice are not associated with dirt or poor hygiene, but they are attracted to, and feed on mould. This could be the mould on damp, caused by fresh plaster drying out or not enough ventilation in a room, or a leaking tap; or it could be the microscopic mould that grows on the glue of book bindings or cardboard, such as in packets and cereal boxes.
The best solution for effective booklice control is ventilation. Throw away any infested items, wipe away any visible mould and thoroughly ventilate and dry out the area. A dehumidifier can help with this process. Insecticidal booklice control sprays will minimize the problem, but because booklice can be very widespread, removing the conditions they thrive in is by far the best course of action.
We sell a range of booklice killer sprays that can be directly applied onto visible booklice and high activity areas. These sprays contain highly effective active ingredients that result in a quick knockdown effect. We also sell natural sprays which use natural ingredients but deliver just as good outcomes.
Booklice killer traps such as bait stations and glue pads are pre-baited and can be placed in and around highly infested areas. We recommend inserting the glue pads into the bait stations as this delivers more effective results.
Booklice killer powders are perfect for sprinkling into cracks and crevices and reaching inaccessible areas such as under cupboards, under skirting boards etc. The powder will cut into the shell of the booklice and absorb the body moisture resulting in dehydration and death.
