How to Kill Crane Flies with Nematodes

September 8, 2016 | Common Garden Pests


Crane flies are not harmful to humans, but their larvae live and feed in the soil and can be very damaging to lawn and turf. If you have a crane fly problem, now is the ideal time to treat with beneficial nematodes! The beneficial nematodes in Scanmask will kill crane fly larvae in the soil and will prevent the larvae from causing damage next spring. By treating with beneficial nematodes in the fall (when the larvae are in the soil and susceptible to nematodes) you will have fewer crane flies next spring.
