Our technicians are finding loads of Crane Fly adults. And so are the customers. Certainly all the rain we had earlier this year has probably increased the likelihood of the larvae surviving the heat and drought of the summer.
The Crane Flies can be a nuisance as they flit and fly around, often by the hundreds. They do not live very long. Mostly to mate and lay eggs.
Those eggs soon hatch into larvae. The larvae of the Crane Fly is called a leatherjacket. These leatherjackets feed on the roots, stems and crowns of grasses. Enough of them and the lawn can be severely damaged.
