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.

10 for an estimate.
We normally have a bad weed problem (scary pokeberry) and about twice a year were having another company remove them and general overgrowth. We decided to try this company due to its reputation. There were a number of delays before they finally showed up on August 14. One time we were accidentally scheduled for a day that was unavailable. After that the crew didn't show up and it was only after I'd been waiting for over an hour did I contact the company to find that they couldn't make it due to flu - these things happened but it would have been nice to have been informed beforehand rather than having to reach out to them after the fact. But we kept the faith and scheduled for a third time. A crew of I think 2 people showed up and spent most of the day removing overgrowth, most of the scary weeds, and trimming the bushes and mulching, etc. Generally very nice. Later that day I had a look around (I'm disabled) and noticed that they had missed some stuff.
I got an email asking how they did. I emailed back that overall the job was "good" but not "outstanding" and then went onto describe what was missed (on the left side of the property, one bush was untrimmed, a patch of weeds was missed behind the gate, and some weeds along the left back fence).

emailed back to say that they would take care of it. A week later it was taken care of.
Overall the work was good but I did lower it a bit due to the missing of the left side, problems with scheduling and communications, and price. Its hard to tell about price. We live in a modest 1950's style tract ranch house and being disabled its not like I can do the work myself so I'm kind of captive to the

came within a day or two of my original call. He was very professional and accommodating. Really seems to care about his customers and building a honest business. The crew arrived on day and time discussed.

was with them and made sure everything was completed to my husband's satisfaction (he is pretty picky). They were very thorough, cleaning out from under shrubs and everything looked beautiful when they finished. We are delighted and will continue to us their service on a bi-weekly basis along with some special projects.

I started using
Whittemore Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
a couple of years ago when I needed someone to removed leaves from my large yard that has over 24 trees in the lot. With just the two of us, it was getting harder and harder to move all the leaves from our front, back and side yards. One of our neighbor recommended
Whittemore Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
to me and his crew came and did the job. They removed all the leaves in the Fall to the
Whittemore Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
including the zero landscaped part of our yard that is downhill. They came usually as scheduled and cleaned up after themselves.
When our long time lawn guy retired, we asked
Whittemore Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
to take over the mowing and edging for our large yard and so far we have not been disappointed. Sometimes reaching him may take a few tries but he is always courteous and does call back. His prices are about average not overly expensive. Hope he doesn't retire too.

Did not have any work done. Called them because they advertise aeration, overseeding, etc. Needed for this fall. When I told the rep who measured the lawn, etc. that I didn't want any treatments (e.g. chemicals 4 x a year) he said he didn't know if they could just do the aeration. I guess unless you purchase all their services they don't want to deal with you. Never heard from them again. If that is the way they operate, they ought to say so in their information on this site.

Contacted the company to get an estimate on some extensive lawn work, no one answered the phone, left a message. A woman called back said the person who could give me the estimate was extremely busy, but would contact me asap. Waited 3 days, called back and left a message stating that I would move on to the next company if I didn't hear from them. Got a call from the estimater, set an appointment. Day of appointment he calls, says he's not going to be able to make it, will call and reschedule, that was about a week ago, nobody has bothered to call back. I wouldn't recommend this company to anyone.
Bottom line, I called another company, they responded immediately, they will be doing the job

The company responded immediately, gave me a quoe within 24 hours and worked with me on a date that worked for my schedule within a week's period of time. The landscaper that came to my house was fabulous...very professional, kind and did a wonderful job. I do recommend this company to anyone needing assistance with landscaping, bush/tree trimming or work of that nature. Thank you!!!
