Use Nemasys Leatherjacket Killer to deal with a leatherjacket infestation, without any of the precautions associated with chemical use, such as excluding children and pets from treated areas until dry or the question of what to do about grazing pets, such as rabbits and guinea pigs.

The best time to use this treatment is between mid September and the end of October or for heavy infestations a double dose may also be applied in April.

NOTE: Late April/Early May, a 100sq treatment will need to be doubled up due to the stage in the leatherjacket's lifecycle - therefore a 100 sq metre treatment will only treat 50sq metres

The expiry date on the nematodes is 2 - 3 weeks from dispatch date and they need to be refrigerated upon receipt.

More Information

Leatherjackets are the larval stage of the crane fly or daddy-long-legs.

Leatherjacket larvae are about 2.5cm (1" long), greyish black in colour, legless and with no distinct head.

In summer leatherjackets pupate. In August they start to lay eggs re-infesting lawns. Within two weeks eggs hatch. The young start to feed, continuing throughout winter, ready to gorge on grass roots in spring. Grass growth slows and yellow patches appear. Grass is easily pulled up, with little or no root growth.

In August gardeners may see clouds of daddy-long-legs emerging from lawns in the early morning and this, as well as the listed damage, are sure signs of leatherjacket infestation.

Starlings peck at the grass in an attempt to eat the grubs.

Wildlife, such as foxes and badgers, can also create a lot of damage as they dig up your lawn in search of grubs for food.
