There are two pests that can potentially cause serious damage to lawns in the UK. The Leatherjacket and Chafer Grub are two insects that can live in the soil beneath lawns. They both can cause extensive damage by eating the root system of the infected lawn, killing the grass completely. Good Lawn Pest Management is essential to keep your lawn healthy and beautiful.
The only effective prevention strategy is to apply the appropriate insecticide to your lawn prior to the damage being caused.
The initial signs of an infestation are an increase in bird and wildlife activity on the lawn as birds and wildlife feed on the insects. As the effect of the infestation worsens, straw patches can be seen in the lawn as the grass dies.
