Proper maintenance and a little TLC in spring should help your lawn thrive throughout the growing season.
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 Bowmanstown
My first experience with them was the property trim on June 5th. I was told they would send 4 men to work for 1 hour to get the big trimming under control for $160 ($40 per man). Only 3 men showed up - very late - for the hour's work. During the hour one of the crew decided to mow the grass, which was not part of the hour I was paying for, and I observed a second guy checking his cell, cleaning his nails, and standing around chatting with the third worker who was trimming. I called the company immediately with this information and they got a bit busier. They did not trim what I asked them to, and trimmed other things I said clearly I did not want them to touch. They did not want to listen to me and kept reminding me that my hour was up, even though they had not given me any where near a full hour's worth of 3 man work. It was extremely stressful and I decided to pay them only for 3 men, although they suggested I pay for 4 because the 3rd man was a Supervisor!!!!! Nice Try..... I did not feel good about continuing with
When I returned home on August 10th, I was HORRIFIED! Everything was overgrown, including the hedge around the air conditioning unit with branches growing into it. Vines had taken over everything since they had done NO trimming at all and palm fronds stayed where they fell. One very heavy frond crushed a smaller flowering tree since it was left there for 2 months. i immediately took pictures on my cell and sent them to
To this day - Aug. 29th - I have never even had the courtesy of a returned call from
I would never recommend this company and am sorry that I continued to pay them in full when I was getting reports that they were not doing the job.
In the end, I remain open and willing to retain Mr.
