We have been seeing a lot of Leatherjacket insects in lawns in the GTA in the last week. The rain has been a help, as it washes them out where they can be seen easily on the road or patio, and encourages the grass to grow through the damage they cause.
If you are finding these larvae on your driveway or sidewalk, please call and let us know. We have an effective treatment that will help reduce the Leatherjacket population on your lawn and stop them from killing your grass. This leatherjacket treatment starts at just $79.00 + HST and up based on lawn size.
What Are Leatherjackets?
Leatherjackets are the larvae of the Cranefly. Craneflies are mostly harmless, however, when they are leatherjackets in their larvae state they can chew on the crown of your grass plant leaving behind only stubble, making them weak and vulnerable.
If they are appearing in your area, please comment below or on our Facebook page and help us track where these insects are attacking.
