Picking plants and shrubs for your lawn's landscape isn't as easy as choosing what looks best or has the most colorful blooms.
Many lawn companies include aeration in their service plans.
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.

It looks like the treatment is working, but there is still some bark scale which will hopefully die out in the upcoming weeks.
So far I am not disappointed with the quality and professionalism of their services. We have had a couple basic issues with fungus and bare spots in our grass, however I believe with a little more time everything will be under control.
, the owner, runs a good business and is always willing to help with answering any questions regarding upkeep and maintaining our lawn.
I had contacted this company in mid-August about aerating my lawn and received a response two weeks later; the season had not yet started. At my initial contact I told them that I lived in
They came here September 1, and seeing the buttonweed in the yard determined that we should wait a few more weeks until it was cooler and the weed died back a bit. That was fine. I followed up via email to get a date on which they were coming. They told me October 6. That's fine.
I emailed today to make sure they were still coming tomorrow as we've had over a week of rain. They told me I am postponed yet again, this time until Thursday. I asked about when first frost may be, as I am concerned it's getting late in the season; they responded that first frost is sometimes October 27.
I mentioned that I was frustrated because I was both being postponed again and being told it's nearly too late, and if I were going to seed myself it would have been before the week-long rain. They then told me that I was the one who postponed last time (I was absolutely NOT - it was
Really, really terrible customer service, and if they didn't want to go to
Very frustrating and I've not actually dealt with a small business so rude via email, ever. They don't need new business, obviously, but there's a way you treat people and a way you don't. I don't care now nice their lawns are - rude service is not acceptable.
