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.

It went very well. The crew started on time, worked diligently in spite of the heat and finished the job before the end of the day. The sod has to grow in and I expect it to look nice when it does. The brick border looks good. I am well pleased with the professionalism and quality of the work.

Excellent company (

Danl is great to work with. He is very talented and aesthetic about landscaping. He also knows a lot about native plantings. He and his crew do excellent work. They always clean up after the work they've done, and haul away debris. He is generous with his time and his advice. He took me with him to the wholesale nursery, helped me pick out plants and hauled them back in his truck. He even took home and cared for some plants for me when it was going to be hot and I was going to be gone for awhile. Our only concern with the work was the cost. I think he charges fair rates for what he does. It is just that there is always more that could be done and added, and it is hard to keep it within a budget limit. He tends to get very busy, so it is hard to get him back sometimes. Though once he commits to a phase, he works consistently and gets it done.

Fall was very prompt and responsive, replying to my request for a free estimate, coming out and giving a thorough review of the situation. He gave a fair and reasonable estimate. When he arrived, I added a few items and he included them at a very reasonable amount above the initial estimate. I asked for and received what I thought was very good advice.

says that he specializes in "

appeal," but he really does much more, since we don't want to just make the place look good and sell it; we live here and wanted advice as to how to help us make both our front and back look good for the long term.

is always cheerful and helpful and his crew was also polite and patient. Everything was on time and professional and we completely trust him and his many good landscaping ideas, several of which he forwarded with email attachments, pointing us to helpful web sites.
One other thing. We almost didn't contact him, despite good reviews, because

seemed so far from Saratoga and we doubted he would come here. But he seems to have other local clients and was unfazed about the trip to us.

I asked for the spiral junipers in the front of my house to be trimmed first. Secondly, I requested my boxwoods,
Sumter Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
and banana trees to be trimmed in that order. He trimmed everything except the Spiral junipers. I was very disappointed, he did not call me to say he ran out of time an did not get to trim the junipers. When called him to find out why he did not trim the Junipers, he said he forgot . He did not offer to come back and finish up.

D&D maintains our yard, but it isn't just about cutting it. In the one year they have been working with us, our yard has been transformed from one that was full of weeds and bare spots to one that is lush and green. Additionally, we hired D&D to redo our front walkway which we are thrilled with. I highly recommend and we will definitely continue to use them as long as they will have us as customers!

I wanted Vivid to simply trim back the bushes and ornamental trees in my front and side yards--a one-time service. Vivid sent me an invoice for $190, which I paid and for what I thought was a really reasonable price. Within two weeks, I received another invoice for $190. My husband called and inquired about the invoice and was told it was for lawn care service, which we had not requested. My husband asked them to stop coming to our property. I paid the invoice although I should not have done so. Within a few weeks, I received another invoice for $190. This time, I called Vivid and was told that I need to submit a written request to cease services--for which I had not requested. I promptly did so and they "stopped" providing services.
In my opinion, I believe Vivid schedules recurring services that are not requested to force individuals to pay for services render. I would not recommend Vivid's services to anyone.

responded to my call promptly and showed up to look at the job and provide an estimate. Him and his crew did the work in one day. Large mature shrubs were expertly trimmed and the area cleaned. These shrubs were very large presenting a difficult task that was expertly done by the
