Treatment for Crane Fly Larvae, Ants and other insects
Leather Jacket Crane Fly Larvae (Danny Longlegs)
If left unattended leather jackets can strip whole lawns in a matter of days. The grass turns brown as the roots are destroyed. Bare patches of lawn are usually quickly colonised by moss and weeds, preventing the grass from taking in moisture, weakening and killing the grass.
Vibrant lawn care apply a treatment in Autumn, whilst the soil temperature is still warm, that seeks out the leatherjacket grubs and destroys them from the inside.
Ants are one of the most common insect problems on lawns. The mounds of soil the ant colonies create produce uneven spots in the lawn, which, when mown are scalped with most of the grass plant removed creating areas for weeds or moss to grow.
Vibrant lawn care use a wettable powder containing 80% bendiocarb and is recommended for the control of cockroaches, ants, fleas, and adult mosquitoes.
