Leatherjacket Lawn Treatment

The only leatherjacket lawn treatment available is to apply nematodes in the Autumn and Spring.

Once applied to the lawn, the nematodes will attack and infect the leatherjackets in the lawn.

A couple of leatherjacket lawn treatments may be necessary to control the initial infestation of leatherjackets followed by regular annual leatherjacket lawn treatment.

The number of eggs laid in the soil by the crane fly can be reduced by applying a chemical spray in August & September.
