"They were very responsive, the trimming was well done and they worked with speed. However, in an effort to end on time they left some branches and leaves behind" (not a lot, but enough that I had to remove them myself). I would have paid a little more for them to complete the job. Given that, I would use them again.

"My only complaint about this provider is they never tell me in advance, either via voicemail or text or e-mail, that they will be coming out the next day or two." It's always a surprise. Otherwise, they show up, the apply either fertilization or weed abatement is scheduled, or they thatch or aerate, they leave a little flag in the front yard so I know they've been there, and they leave the bill and a very detailed explanation of what they've done that day along with any recommendations for care that I can perform in a plastic bag on the door.

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're good about coming when they say they're gonna come so they don't cancel their appointment or change their appointment time and if they do have to change it, they always tell me that they're gonna change their scheduled date. They're easy to work with. They're in and out quickly. They always shut the gate in the backyard which I know sounds like not a big deal but it is a big deal for the dogs. They always clean things up.

I am very happy with their services. I plan on using them again this year and I recommend them to all of my friends. The owner listens and works with you on any problems.

The technician always comes to the door before starting work to alert us that he is in the yard. The work is accomplished quickly and quietly. The technician leaves an invoice in a plastic bag on my front door knob. It is convenient to pay the invoice online. When my lawn gets enough water, which is my responsibility, it looks great. However, if this drought continues much longer, I may have to resort to xeriscaping.

Door to door salesman was rude. In my community with a no-soliciting sign at the entrance, he knocked on my door, that has another No-Soliciting sign. He felt free to open that door. When I asked if he felt it didn't apply to him, he said that it was ok, because his boss tells him where he has to go. When I said I didn't really care what his boss told him to do, he said I was being rude to him.

The gentleman who called to schedule the aeration explained the process and what to do in preparation. The rain caused a change of date and were rescheduled without any delay. On the day before the aeration we received a confirmation call. When the gentleman arrived, he rang the doorbell to inform me that he would be starting the work. The job was performed as well as expected.

Was very quiet. I was home and didn't even know that he came. Unfortunately all of my healthy grass is now yellow. I did some googling and learned that this is caused by over-fertilizing the grass. So now I have to repair the lawn due to this treatment. My lawn does need a lot of work but the healthy grass was in fact healthy. My previous provider (who also used organic products) never caused the healthy grass to turn yellow.

Please note that I don't remember the exact day of the work but it occurred in early February and was purchased as a "Big Deal"
