The spring cranefly hatch is here, after what seems like a shocking spring for leatherjacket damage I’m trying to gauge what’s done the damage and are they going to continue to feed all summer or are they now hatching and for how long???
Keep logging your sightings on the Syngenta PestTracker and well see if we can establish any patterns.
The above video shows this years sightings to date of all Chafers. Thanks for registering them. We’re seeing them a few weeks earlier than last year, now we watch to see when peak numbers begin to fly.
The above video shows all the logged sightings of Cranefly. We had an earlier peak a few weeks back. With the amount of leatherjackets seen on the greens surfaces recently I was expecting that flush to continue – Keep registering and watch this space.
