Lawn Pests…


Larvae grub of the crane fly, they feed on the roots of grasses and can do substantial damage if found in great numbers. Initial signs are a thinning and yellowing of the sward, also the lawn getting a lot of attention from birds especially starlings is an indication that leatherjackets are present.   Most damage is done from October to April. August/September sees the adult crane fly (daddy longlegs) emerge, they lay their eggs to start the process all over again.  

Chafer Grubs

Adult chafers are medium-sized reddish brown beetles, ( May Beetle ) however its the grub stage that causes damage by eating the grass roots, then birds, foxes, badgers, will all do extensive damage trying to get at the grubs.
