Cranefly hatch – how will the heat impact?

How will the cranefly hatch break in 2022? Back in 2020 we saw a dry and hot July which I wrote about here and at that time I think I was expecting it to drive an earlier hatch due to the dry weather. 2020 was hot and we experienced serious fires around the London area…

Acelepryn 0.6l or 1l bottles?

The recent Acelepryn Emergency Authorisation, and particularly sourcing the desired bottle sizes, has been an example of how delivering a product to market is a lot more complex than I ever gave credit for when I was managing golf courses.

Heading into May – Cranefly hatch

As we head into the last week of April the Cranefly hatch reports are beginning to come in. It feels early still (See blog here that I wrote but forgot to post!! from Early April) but we’re seemingly behind 2019 and 2020. 2022 was a cold slow Spring and never really produced a peak hatch.…

Cranefly hatch? Feels early?

Based on historic PestTracker data on average we begin to see craneflies in the second week of April. Whilst I still can’t believe how it’s happened, we are very quickly approaching the second week of April. As always though the averages mask and hide a number of nuances If we look back through the years…
