From time to time your lawn may suffer damage from an insect infestation, this is normal and hard to avoid but at Greensleeves Lawn Care we offer a range of specialist treatments that can help control lawn pests as they occur.


The most common diseases we see on British lawns are Chafer Grubs – (Phyllopertha horticola) they are the larvae of the Cockchafer beetle and Leatherjackets (Tipula spp) which is the larval stage of the Crane fly or Daddy Long Legs. See our advice pages link for more detail on each of these insects and the damage they can do to your lawn.


The first step is to correctly identify what problem, if any, your lawn is suffering from and then decide the correct course of action. Greensleeves have access to and will, as appropriate select from a range of professional products that are suitable and approved for use to control lawn problems.

What to expect

Whilst it is often very easy to control or kill these pests once they have been correctly diagnosed it is more difficult to prevent them from returning. It is important therefore to follow a sound turf maintenance program to ensure your lawn is in the best health possible to avoid suffering from these issues. Your lawn manager will be happy to discuss this with you.
