Crane flies, also called mosquito hawks, are actually harmless. Crane fly larvae, however, can cause extensive damage to your lawn if populations are high and they are left uncontrolled. With professional grade products from DoMyOwn, you can kill crane fly larvae and keep your lawn looking its best.
Crane Fly Damage
Crane fly larva feed all parts of your grass, and the feeding causes brown patches in your lawn, as well as thinning turf. When populations are high, this damage can affect large areas of your lawn. See our crane fly inspection article for more information about the signs of crane fly damage.
Using Crane Fly Products
Crane fly control should be focused on the larvae, since they are the part of the life cycle that cause the damage. Pyrethroid products, or synthetic pyrethrins, work very well against crane fly larvae. Professional grade pyrethroid products come in liquid or granular formulas that should be applied with a tank sprayer or drop spreader, respectively.
