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.
Lawn And Yard Work reviews in Russell Springs
toward accomplishing landscaping goals esp. with everyone's busy schedules. No drama; I enjoy working with his firm, and would not hesitate to recommend them for any one-time project (plantings; pine straw; trimming, etc.) or recurring yard maintenance.
middle priced quote, as he seemed professional and more than qualified for the
job. On day one he arrived late and didn't complete nearly as much as we
anticipated mainly because he had other jobs he was doing and didn't stay long,
delegating the work to a poorly trained new employee. Every day was like this,
an hour here an hour there, delays with topsoil, delays with sod. Also, while
doing the job, his bobcat left ruts in the yard which he wasn't planning on
fixing. It took a lot of persuading to get him to roll and fill the worst areas.
End result, the palmettos are gone and the sod is down. Instead of 2 days it took a week.
There are all kinds of ridges in the yard that weren't there before and the
edges of the sod were laid on top of the old grass, with no attempt to blend it
to the rest of the yard, leaving bumps. Needless to say mowing is not fun.
is right though, it will all blend in eventually but until next year it's not
like a newly planted yard should be.
I won't hire this contractor again and can't recommend
him for anything more than what the good reviews were about, basic yard cleanup
The work was all performed by a two person crew and the son of one of the crew. They did a great job and worked hard, but it felt a bit strange that they brought the kid.
My negative scores all relate to the process of getting an estimate. The initial appointment the owner/ was a 'no-show" and admitted to forgetting about it when I called him. He was an hour late on the rescheduled date. Then even though I explained the job was to remove the overgrown shrub on the phone, he told me it was not worth coming back unless it was for a full day.
Since I felt the day rate was reasonable and I had other things I could come up with to fill the day I agreed. When they came back to do the work, the owner dropped off the crew and left (also a surprise). As mentioned the crew did good work so ultimately I have no complaints about the work done, but the process of getting it arranged was unprofessional.
