Control leatherjackets naturally by treating with Nemasys® Leatherjacket Killer containing millions of natural nematodes - mix with water and apply the nematodes (Steinernema Carpocapsae) to the infected lawn with a watering can, EasyNem Applicator or Nematode ApplicatorIt is best to treat in the Autumn i.e. Sept/Oct/Nov i.e. NOW as this is when the leatherjackets are newly hatched, the soil is warm (needs a daytime soil temp of 12c) and are at the most susceptible to the nematodes. You can treat at other times of the year i.e. in the spring/summer, but you must treat at DOUBLE STRENGTH as the mature leatherjackets are much harder to kill. Nemasys Leatherjacket Killer is a perishable product, which will keep for up to 2 weeks in the fridge, so please order when you are ready to apply. Nemasys® Leatherjacket Killer treats 100 sqm in the Autumn (or 50 sqm when applied at double strength).

Description

Details

Daddy Long LegsCrane flies or daddy long legs lay their eggs in the same area of lawn from which they emerge, so numbers increase rapidly. These eggs hatch in August / Sept and the larvae immediately start to feed on the grass roots. The leatherjackets will feed though the autumn, before overwintering. They start feeding again the following spring and gorge on grass roots before pupating to emerge as adults in August. The symptoms of an attack are that grass growth slows and yellow patches appear PLUS the grass easily pulled up with little or no root growth. One of the biggest indicators of an infestation are birds, particularly starlings, which will pull at the lawn (causing even more damage) in search of the leatherjackets to eat.

LeatherjacketsLeatherjackets - In August, customers report clouds of daddy long legs emerging from lawns in early morning leaving behind the casings sticking up in the lawn. As the daddy long legs emerge, they start to lay their eggs back in infected lawns starting the whole cycle again - the next generation of leatherjackets hatch within 2 weeks. Leatherjackets are up to 2.5cm / 1" long, greyish black in colour, legless and with no distinct head. We recommend treating with Nemasys® Leatherjacket Killer in late autumn i.e. Sept / Oct / Nov when the leatherjackets are newly hatched, close to the surface and the soil is warm and the leatherjackets are the most susceptible to the nematodes. You can treat during the rest of the year, but you need to apply the treatment at double strength.

Control leatherjackets naturally by applying Nemasys® Leatherjacket Killer containing millions of nematodes (Steinernema Carpocapsae) to the infected lawn as soon as the leatherjackets are discovered (and the soil temperature is 12c) or when the leatherjackets are active i.e. in the autumn (Sept / Oct / Nov) and in the spring (April). Nemasys® Leatherjacket Killer is effective at killing leatherjackets, but is harmless to children, wildlife and pets and the lawn may be used immediately after application. Apply as follows :-

  • Apply Nemasys® Leatherjacket Killer in Sept/Oct/Nov - This is the ideal time to treat as the soil is warm PLUS the leatherjackets are newly hatched, the soil is warm (needs a daytime soil temp of 12c) and are the most susceptible to the nematodes, so if you have had leatherjackets in the past or have discovered a leatherjacket infestation or your neighbours are infested and you want to keep them at bay, treat in Sept/Oct/Nov. When applying in the autumn, each pack will treat 100 sqm. Available NOW
  • Apply Nemasys® Leatherjacket Killer when leatherjackets are discovered - Nemasys® Leatherjacket Killer is normally applied in September as this is when the leatherjackets are newly hatched and most susceptible to the nematodes, but if you have discover leatherjackets (not daddy long legs) at any other time of year i.e. in the spring/summer then treat at double strength as the mature leatherjackets are much harder to kill, but you must treat in September as well. When applying in the spring / summer at double strength, each pack will treat 50 sqm.

How to apply? - Nemasys® Leatherjacket Killer is easy to use. Simply mix the harmless powder with water & apply to the lawn using a watering can fitted with a rose (we recommend the Haws Rose no.14) or use a hose-end feeder / easynem applicator or nematode applicator for larger areas. Nemasys® Leatherjacket Killer should be applied to a moist lawn (we recommend pre - watering) on a dull day or in the evening. After application you MUST wash the nematodes into the lawn by watering heavily with a hose or a sprinkler. Once applied the nematodes will seek out the leatherjacket larvae and on contact they enter the larvae and destroy it. Having destroyed the leatherjacket ,the nematodes multiply and are released back into the soil to hunt down more leatherjackets.

How is it sent? - Nemasys® Leatherjacket Killer is a perishable, living product, so it is sent out fresh by Royal Mail 1st class post. Being a perishable, living product, it must be used before the expiry date (which is marked on the inside of the pack and will be at least 2 weeks) and it must be stored in the fridge until it is needed. Once opened, the contents do not keep, so it must be used in one day - do NOT store the made up solution or powder.

N.B. Need a Haws Rose, EasyNem Applicator or Nematode Applicator - Add one to your basket and save £1.00 off a Haws Rose, save £3.00 off a Hose-end Feeder or save £3.50 off a Nematode Applicator when bought with your nematodes (savings applied at the checkout).

Excellent service and pleasing result so far.
Ordered nematodes to combat the leather jacket attack on our lawn, a two dose autumn treatment, one pack now and a second pack delivered a few weeks later. Received each packet in good time and good condition. Followed the clear and easy to understand instructions and we seem to now have a recovering lawn, it may take some time and a little re-seeding but hopefully the problem is resolved. Excellent service and pleasing result so far.

Absolutely zero problems since using Leatherjacket treatment.
I started using Nemasys Leather jacket treatment five years ago after losing an entire newly laid lawn to leatherjacket infestation. Absolutely zero problems since then. Deliveries are always prompt and instructions accompanying the product are very clear and easily understood.

It’s amazing when you know what your looking for.
Hopefully I will now get rid of the leather jackets that have been eating my grass roots. Green gardener helped me understand what was happening with my brown patches. I ordered the intensive treatment the second I have packet of Nematodes I watered in today. I saw Daddy long legs and leatherjackets cases today. It’s amazing when you know what your looking for.

Great product and service and I will be ordering it again.
Had a very bad leather jacket infestation early spring which pretty much destroyed the whole lawn by the time I realised what the problem was. Given the stage of the larvae I used several applications over a couple of months and followed the instructions carefully, after some time and patience they have been eradicated completely and the lawn is starting to recover with some TLC. Great product and service and I will be ordering it again in the Autumn as a preventative measure

Excellent quick service. Blighted with Leather Jackets in my garden each year. Then the government bans the pesticides. Someone told me about Green gardener and their alternative and I use it every year. No more eaten away grass. Quickly despatched with full instructions.

Leatherjacket
After losing an entire lawn to Leatherjackets in 2016, I started using the Nematode product twice a year. Since then my lawn has been untouched. This year I had an additional problem with large numbers of very large slugs. Once again Green Gardener provided the cure.
