"We have had this service for over three years. Within the first two applications we saw a big difference. By the end of the first season, we went from having a huge" backyard full of nothing but weeds to an amazing, weed-free, tick-free backyard that was so incredible-looking that it was one of the features that attracted a buyer to our home. The company and the technicians were always immediately responsive to any concerns and they were always very friendly. Just remember to always mow your grass at the height the technician recommends. 99% of customers don't do this. It makes a huge difference.

"Went well, as promised, he brought the right equipment and worked quickly. Professional. We purchased as a "deal" and was performed as described. We would call again.

How to Get Rid of Springtails

One of the most effective ways to control springtails is to dry out the infested area. Springtails require a high-moisture environment to breed and thrive, living mostly off of algaes that grow in moist conditions. They will either leave the infested area or die out. If there is an infestation that cannot be controlled by drying out the infested area, use an appropriately labeled insecticide with a residual time These will typically be a liquid concentrate form, a wet-able powder form, or a dust product.  DO NOT APPLY UNTIL AREAS ARE DRY.  If area will not dry naturally, use Corn Starch to soak-up any lingering moisture and otherwise 'steer' any rain water or irrigation away from area.

 

Also, if there is a noticed springtail infestation around the perimeter of the structure, use the insecticide to do a barrier treatment and apply corn starch to reduce or eliminate moisture. Caulk and seal all cracks and crevices and inspect potted plants before they are brought into the house.

I would talk to your local lawn and garden supply store (or mill and feed) - NOT a box store or hardware store. There are also selective grass control chemicals. YOu can research this by Googling using search string      "Tall Fescue Control" - there are lots of articles by the USDA and individual state cooperative extension services.

There is a treatment called chlorsulfuron TFC (Tall Fescue Control) that will do this - it worked for me in western New York, but took 3 years to finish out all the tall fescue. It may now be limited to use by commercial applicators - pretty potent stuff. Can yellow bluegrass or make it phytosensitive, but our looked OK during treatment because the TFC was applied in the fall for best results, and our lawn was dormant till spring anyway.

Tall fescue can also be controlled by real short mowing, but only in areas where the bluegrass is dominant and really thrives so will eventually crowd out the trimmed fescue, but you may be too far north for that.

Our lawn looks awesome, we are pleased with the service we received.
In less than a year's time of treatment, there's a big improvement in the condition of the lawn.

Had much difficulty scheduling the service.
Dates were offered and rescinded.

My yard is larger than the 3,000-SF service offfer.
I wanted to direct the service provider to the area I wanted worked, and stated so in my email communications.
The service provider came without notice, and I wasn't home, and worked the easiest and best parts of the yard.
The parts of the yard that needed the service were ignored.

I have used this young man's services twice now. I appreciate the degree of professionalism he brings to the job and the quality of his work. He responds quickly, he shows up when he says, and the evidence of his work is readily apparent. On top of all that, the price is quite reasonable. A good deal.

Approximately 2-3 weeks prior to this I confirmed with
Pittsburgh Lawn Aeration Provider Name Locked
that I had moved my invisible fence and they could come and do the work whenever they wanted. I hadn't heard from them since so on Monday, 9/15, I called them to check on the status of this service. The young lady I spoke to told me that the paperwork had been printed out, that they were doing this work between then and the end of the month, and that I would receive a phone call the night before they came to do the work. This was very important to me, as I wanted to be sure to mow and water the night before to set myself up for the best success. So, I hung up at that point, satisfied with the exchange. When I returned from work on Tuesday the yard had been core aerated and overseeded without any notification. Yesterday I called to complain, but they were gone for the day, and this morning I received a call back. When I explained the situation to the young lady on the phone, she simply said that "I'd be fine" and that they were "sorry". These was no offer to do anything else or to make up for what I perceive to be an error on their part. The incident really p***** me off and the woman's response today left me even more angry. On top of all of this I haven't really noticed much change in the lawn this year. I still have crabgrass in the front, which I told them about before we started this year. They promised me it would be taken care of. I honestly feel that simply applying the treatments myself using the products that I can purchase at Home Depot gave me the same or better results than I see this year and I'm extremely disappointed.
I would NOT, under any circumstances, recommend this vendor to anyone for consideration and/or use.

I had these guys for several years. The provided very non-exciting, average service until I cancelled them (spring, 2013). They came back the next year and made an unauthorized application (one week after my new provider had made an application). I called and complained. The CSR was horrible. I wrote them a letter, no response. They kept sending me a bill for the unauthorized service. I finally complained to the Attorney General and the manager,

, lied to the Attorney General's office, saying he would take the charge off our account and that as of 6/12/14 we had a zero balance. But....I'm still getting overdue bills from them. Deal with these guys at your own risk.

Within a couple days they stopped by my house to do the estimate and left behind the paperwork with the details. I called them back to accept the agreement and they had someone out to treat the lawn within a couple weeks. I signed up for a recurring treatment and they have been on schedule each month. The grass is looking better than it has in the past. For a separate price, they will be back in the fall to aerate and seed.

At the time I paid for service (Sept. 2013), I inquired if the contract would take care of yard care up through the following September, 2014 and was told YES. I thought $365 was a bit steep for a season, but it seemed OK if it included all the things I needed for a whole year. I was also told it would include an special services I needed--whatever might be necessary to keep my lawn looking good for a year. (I was now a "preferred customer." )
In May of 2014, I noticed some bare spots and called to request some extra grass seed.
Pittsburgh Lawn Aeration Provider Name Locked
was very nice over the phone and said they could do that. The technician who came out to do the next application did not remember the grass seed. I called a couple weeks later and they said someone would come out, but it would have to be a manager. The manager never called back. Meanwhile, I got a bill for the regular service performed by the technician for $20.
When I called to ask about the bill, they said my account "ran out" of money. Apparently, the initial contract was not explained correctly and it was really only good for 5 appiications plus the initial seeding, aeration and grub control. After speaking to customer service, they took the $20 off my account and were "nice" over the phone but would have to charge me for a new year if I wanted to continue service. I tried to speak to the service manager and customer service a couple more times-- but got the same story: It was NOT a year contract, but a "seasonal" contract and the balance ran out (as they subtracted each $42 lawn application). I canceled my service instead of continuing with a new contract since I think that is too expensive and the communication was very misleading.
