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.

Considering that I am on the other side of town and work a couple of jobs and I am not the easiest
person to meet It was GREAT. They removed brick landscaping and replaced it with a retaining wall.
They are very clean and prompt... great job

In front of our house we had 25 year old bushes that had grown tall and were unsightly. We also had crepe

trees. The old bushes were difficult to remove but they had a tractor, The new plants were planted without problems and the ground covered with mulch. They did break a sprinkler pipe but fixed it. The only problem was they were a day late starting. They were very professional. We are extremely pleased with the design and final appearance of the landscaping project. I give the landscape architect an A+ and the workers an A.

It went great, they were actual a day or so early, I wasn't home at the time as they could come early, unexpectedly so I had made other plans, but they called and confirmed the work I wanted done and to ensure it was okay that they were there (which it was). By the time I arrived to the house, they had completed all the work I needed done better than I could have expected and even a bit more as they had the time to do so. The guys were super friendly and professional. I would definitely use them again.

They initally removed some ivy. They also did some trimming of branches. After that we decided to have them take down the tree. They grounded down the stump 18 inches and re-mulched the area. They were really professional and work with you. He seems to have the customer's best interest in mind. It was really excellent. He was supposed to be done last week, but his equipment wasn't working properly. He stayed in contact with us the entire time about rescheduling. If you need some lawn work done with your best interest in mind he is the person to go with.

Friendly service from the very beginning. Prompt and professional. Our gardens needed a lot of work-

and crew weeded, trimmed and mulched our entire yard. They removed a large section of raised beds and laid sod to replace the beds and weeds. They replaced a class 5 area behind our garage. We have a large yard- 212 feet deep and they finished the job in less than 2 days.
Beautiful results!

I was not at home when they came to do the service but when I came home everything looked great! The wooded area looked freshened and clean. Everything was cleaned up very well and it looked as though no one had even been in the yard to do all that work.

Although it took a bit of time to get the service due to the massive response to the BIG DEAL, i was thrilled with the responsiveness of the business as they checked in multiple times with me to update on the status of timing for when the service could be provided. The aeration was done quickly and covered all the desired areas.

Great company!!
