    Your supplier is correct, there is no labelled chemical for the control of Leather Jackets/Chafer Grubs. 

    The only thing I can suggest is to fully aerate the affected area, this will encourage the Leather Jackets to hatch and fly away followed by a foliar feed in the form of a soluble or liquid product to help recover the area.

  • Nematodes are an option and as Bethany suggests cultivating the soil is suppose to work so increase aeration and r drainage 

    Leather jackets don't do much damage but animals trying to eat them can - but not problematic on our lawn as quite relaxed about it - prefer some life in mine rather than a green desert!

    Chafer grubs can eat grass roots so do more damage again nematodes and cultivation methods reduce likelihood of a problem.

    Know your pest before you try to find the solution! 

    • Thanks. But definetly leather jackets,
  • Try Rigby Taylor i worked for a company and they treated airfields with a chemical for leather jackets so there will be something.

    • chlorpyrifos was recently withdrawn from the market so nothing now
      • Your right Jo.

    • Thanks
