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.

Have used multiple different groups in Atlanta before finding them and they are the best. They always do what they say and go above and beyond
Best Value --For What they bring for the table
They are very very knowledgeable and really care about customer service a ton I am using them for all landscaping, hardscaping and lawn care needs moving forward!
In addition, I used Mr.
The only issue I have is the response time. I have had to place several calls to the office and I have had to wait for a call back. I just chalked it up to the fact that the company must be very busy.
I do understand the frustration about the gentleman and the snow removal issue. I really cannot comment on that because I have never used this service. In addition, I have never dealt with Mr. Fratangelo, but I do think Mr. Fratangelo should have called the gentleman back before there was a snowfall. From my many years of working with
The work was average on the plowing of the lot. They shoveled the sidewalk in front and side of the building. They only salted directly in front of the entry (not the complete sidewalk).
Unfortunately this is where it turned badly. I received an emailed invoice for two clearings of the lot. They explained they did it at 1:00am and at 6:00 am which was not what I had asked for.
Below is the communication to and from E&L Lawncare:
I understand your concern. In order for the school property
to be cleared by 6:00am on Monday we had to service the lot twice.Best,
From: E&L Lawn Care
We reached 2 inches of accumulation by 1:00 am. At this timeour trucks were dispatched to all clients who have a 2 inch tolerance. Per yourrequest, plowing was to be done by 6:00 am. The only way to accommodate theseneeds was to service your location twice in this event.
In the future we can service the school lot at the end ofthe event, but in doing so can make no guarantee the lot will be completed by6:00 am.
Sorry for confusion. J.
We apologize if you were misinformed regarding snow removalservices. We understand the request to be cleared by 6:00 am. However, whendealing with snow removal, all clients fall upon a route. All clients havespecifications and we have to accommodate everyone's requests. With this beingsaid your location had to be service twice.
Going forward, in the future if this is not acceptable wecan terminate our arrangement.
We accept all credit cards check or Cash
I will not apply anymore discounts other than Angie's list.---------------------On
The actual mowing result was barely acceptable. It was rather choppy and uneven. However, they did the trim and used a blower to get rid of the clippings off the pavement.
There was no call or update to the change in times and days. There was also not a notice that they were starting or stopping the mowing. They would just show up, start mowing, and leave. Usually they were done within 45 minutes for a 1/2 acre yard.
