and his crew did a wonderful job. They were very efficient and friendly. The place looks beautiful and I have arranged to hire them to" take over my lawn requirements too, as they will keep my bushes trimmed on an ongoing rotation. I was very happy with their work. Would not hesitate to recommend this company!

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.

They were able to adjust their schedule to meet my immediate needs which I really appreciated. They did a great job even though it was pouring rain. They were friendly and exceeded my expectations.

Didn't go too well. The crew threw palm debris over my fence onto my neighbors property so they didn't have to carry it to their trailer. Instead of trimming around the red bricks that border the bushes, they sprayed ROUND UP. I have six inches of dead grass around the landscaping.

We bought a house where the yard had not been cleaned up in 5 years. Safaria came and gave us an estimate. We hired them, but then had to delay the work. When we called them back they were very busy and couldn't perform the services. They were very nice, unfortunately they were just to busy at the time.

It took a few phone calls for her to answer the call and we had to rearrange the date for some reason. She didn't seem to get it and had no visual aids to assist in understanding for me who didn't know the names of plants.
