Insecticides

Ground Force Leisure supply a varied selection of insecticides for sport turf. These chemical products are used for insect control, such as chafer grubs and leatherjackets and the prevention of earthworm casts.

Their method of application is either through spraying onto the turf or via granular application followed by sufficient irrigation to ensure that it is washed through the thatch layer and into the soil.

Merit Turf is a granular insecticide for the control of chafer grubs and leatherjackets on golf courses, bowling greens, athletic fields, commercial and residential lawns and other managed amenity turf situations.

Cyren is a highly effective liquid soil insecticide used for the control of leatherjackets and frit fly in sports and amenity turf. Early treatment is recommended so Cyren can be applied at anytime from the beginning of November through to the end of March, when high populations are detected or damage is first seen.

Caste Off Carbendazim is an effective product for wormcast suppression. Earthworm casts result from the deposition of earth and decomposing matter. Casts are produced seasonally, during the spring and autumn where conditions such as moisture and temperature are suitable and ultimately effect ball roll, and the aesthetic appearance of the playing surfaces.
