How TruGreen professional lawn care UK uses Acelepryn to eliminate lawn pests

Are you struggling with leatherjackets and chafer grubs? We can help using our exclusive Acelepryn treatment.

Lawn pests are an often-invisible enemy for lawn lovers everywhere.

Be it the tiny chafer grub or the pesky leatherjacket, lawn pests can cause grave damage by eating away at the grass roots, causing your turf to become yellow and patchy.

At TruGreen Professional Lawn Care UK, our methods for treating leatherjackets and chafer grubs often involved treatment via nematodes – a biological treatment involving the release of multicellular insects into the turf to drive out pests.

However, due to advancements in lawn care processes, we may now also use a product known as Acelepryn – offered exclusively by TruGreen UK for a limited time.

This blog posts delves into what Acelepryn is and how we use it to treat lawn pests.

What is Acelepryn?

Newly registered for use in lawncare, Acelepryn insecticide provides our TruGreen lawn care operatives with exceptional broad-spectrum control of key pests that severely damage turf by eating the roots, including chafer grubs and leatherjackets, without harming non-targets and beneficial insects on the plant and in the soil.

When to apply Acelepryn

Acelepryn provides excellent results when applied to emerging larvae, and its wide application window offers greater flexibility than other treatments like nematodes.

For Leatherjacket Control

For leatherjackets, egg laying will likely start in August, continuing to the end of September.

For optimum control, apply Acelepryn when peak crane fly activity is observed.

For Chafer Grub Control

Egg laying can start in May and can continue right through July.

This depends on the species present, and adult flight periods are monitored to determine the best period for application.

Benefits of using Acelepryn

One of the main benefits of Acelepryn is the efficiency and recovery it allows your lawn.

It won’t affect your lawn and its use for long periods, so you can return to spending time in the garden you love.

It is efficient because…

  • It achieves excellent results after just one application a year.
  • No aftercare is required after the treatment, meaning grass cuttings can be composted after the second cut post-application.
  • It is also 100% pet friendly, so your furry friends can enjoy your pest-free lawn with you as soon as the treatment is complete.

Application rates for Acelepryn

Acelepryn has been formulated to work efficiently while applied at a low rate.

This is in terms of product and water application.

So, in most cases, just one annual application at the optimal time to combat the specific lawn pest your lawn is infested with should be sufficient.
