Leatherjacket Up Close

Found a leatherjacket while digging in the garden. Pardon my dirty finger, but it can give you an idea of the size.
Leatherjackets are the larvae of Crane Flies. Crane flies look like giant mosquitoes. The Crane flies can be nuisance, but they mate and lay eggs that hatch into leatherjackets.
Leatherjackets can damage lawns by eating the roots and crowns of turf grass.

Here is a dandelion about 30 hrs after a treatment with Horticultural Vinegar.

HV is almost 4 times more potent than household vinegar.
