An insecticide application will kill the crane fly larvae in your turf. There are several products available labeled to control European crane fly larvae, in liquid or granular formulas, that can be applied to your turf.

Products containing imidacloprid and pyrethroids are popular ingredients. Because each product has specific application instructions, you must read the label for proper application timings and rates. Some products will require spot treating, while others will need to be broadcast over the area.

Optimal control will be achieved when applied in late summer or early fall, soon after eggs hatch. You can also apply these products in the spring, once temperatures begin to rise. Always follow the label for safe and effective use.

And it’s that easy with the expert help from Do My Own Pest Control dot com!
