Will Malathion control crane fly larvae(leather jackets) in the lawn?

If so, what would be the dose per gallon. When would be best time of year to apply and temperature?


Malathion 57% is not labeled to be used on lawns or for control of crane flies. You could use a systemic product such as Merit 0.5 G for crane fly larvae. We have more tips in our Crane Fly Prevention Guide here as well.
