Turf Moss/Cranefly Control

Moss and Cranefly Control

Winter can be a tough time for lawns. Constant rain, especially in the shade, can lead to moss growth. We fight this every year. Although it is difficult to prevent, it luckily is easy to control. Liquid iron, sprayed on a lawn quickly and effectively controls moss. It will actually kill it in hours, turning it black. Although it is easy to kill, it will regrow every year requiring annual treatment. We have even been experimenting with twice yearly treatment, December and March. Although normally considered an enhanced service, moss treatment is relatively inexpensive.

European Cranefly is a soil grub that can cause severe damage in the late winter or early spring. Although we avoid insect and control treatments unless critical, Cranefly is one we recommend annual treatment as the damage can be significant and comes on very quickly. The good news is that it can be done at the same time as moss control, saving labor expense when done together.
