Chaffer Grub infestation
By Jason Callow, Mar 9 2016 12:54PM
Recently we have been called out to a number of grassed areas/Lawns images attached
where the grass has been dying off
the cause for this has been Chaffer Grubs ( The Larvae of Chaffer Beatles) image attached
very similar effects from Leather Jackets ( The Larvae of Daddy Longlegs)
normally this would happen later in the year, June -September but because of the mild winter we have had in the uk this has increased there survival rate and breading habbits of these insects.
They can be treated with nemotodes and this needs to happen before a new lawn is laid/seeded.
