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.
Lawn Care reviews in Johnson City
A crew showed up early and did the work in a day. Our previous company took much longer and never did a good job in the clean up. Our yard looked beautiful front and back. I don't know how they got all the weeds out, but the beds are very clean. They mulched and edged the beds beautifully. I was happy to see that the crew didn't rely on herbicides like our previous company did. Our previous company sprayed so much herbicide that it killed most of my flowers and some of our bushes.
Overall they did an excellent job for a good price.
We used them originally in 2010 for weeding the beds and mulching, which cost $210.
In 2011, they quoted us the same cost for the same work, although we did not use them.
When we used them in spring of 2014 the cost had increased to $340 for the same work, which did not seem too unreasonable.
This year we asked them to quote the same work - mulch and weed. They were our top choice. The sales person,
That drove the price up to $570 almost a 60% increase from the previous year's work in 2014. We emailed
They could have saved everyone some time and trouble if that information had been in the initial quote. They were easy to deal with, although a little slow, but a 270% increase for the same work over 5 years, and 60% increase year-over-year is unreasonable.
Fortunately there are other options for people and Angie’s list is a place to let people know the truth from the client perspective.
The excuses that I got were that there was a large response to the ad (NOT MY PROBLEM) and combined with rain in the area (NOT MY FAULT), they couldn't get me a date until MAY when I purchased the deal in March.
Ridiculous to think that someone would wait that many months to get landscaping done.
