Pest & Disease Control

Leather Jackets

Leather Jackets are the larvae of the Crane fly. The crane fly is more commonly known as a daddy long legs, they live in the soil and eat the roots of the grass which causes brown patches or bare patches progressing to large bare patches and in some cases the entire destruction of the lawn. Lawnsavers Lawn Treatment Services can apply an insecticide to eradicate Leather Jackets.

Chafer Grubs

Chafer Grubs are the larvae of the chafer beetle. Like leather jackets they live in the soil and eat the roots of the grass which again causes brown patches or bare patches progressing to large bare patches and in some cases the entire destruction of the lawn. Lawnsavers Lawn Treatment Services can apply an insecticide to eradicate Chafer Grubs.

Diseases

Lawn diseases are caused by either poor health or weather conditions or both.

Red Thread

Red Thread is a turf disease caused by the corticoid fungus which causes brown/red patches in the lawn. Lawnsavers Lawn Treatment Services can apply a fungicide treatment which will eradicate it.

Fusarium

Fusarium patch is a turf disease due the michrodochium nivale fungus and causes yellow/brown patches in the lawn. Lawnsavers Lawn Treatment Services can apply a fungicide which will eradicate it.

Rust

Rust is a turf disease due to various fungi but usually the Pucciniaor Uromyces species and causes yellow/brown patches in the lawn. Lawnsavers Lawn Treatment Services can apply a fungicide which will eradicate it.

Leaf spot

Leaf spot is a turf disease due to the fungus Cercospora fusimaculan and causes yellow/brown patches. Lawnsavers lawn treatment services can apply a fungicide which will eradicate it.

Fairy rings

Fairy rings are due to various fungi causing rings or arcs of either mushrooms/toadstools, dead grass, dark green grass or all three at the same time. We would need to look at the fairy rings before making recommendations on treatment.

Lawn diseases are caused by either poor health or weather conditions or both. The feeds that Lawnsavers Lawn Treatment Services apply, Hollow Tine Aeration, Scarification (if Thatch or Moss are present), advice we give about mowing, watering and other advice all help to promote a healthy lawn so it is possible for the cause of disease to be weather conditions which is why a fungicide sometimes need to be applied.

There are also other causes of brown/yellow/bare patches in lawns which would need to be indentified on inspection and recommendations given.
