How to Identify and Control Crane Flies

Step #1: Identify the crane fly and try to eliminate them before new ones hatch.

The larva of adult crane flies feed on grass plants from late fall through spring. The adults, which resemble large mosquitoes, hatch in late summer, mate and lay their eggs in a short period of time. The larva, called Leatherjackets, hatch in late fall and feed well into spring. They can damage large sections of your lawn if left untreated. Treatment can be applied from October through April, with the best results occurring in the spring.


Step #2: Hire a professional to apply crane fly treatments.

You’re going to want to let a lawn care professional handle this type of insect. Not only can the process be tricky, but the treatments should be applied by someone who has experience with the control product and crane flies in the past. Our lawn care experts in Washington have dealt with crane flies since they first arrived on the scene, and have shared their knowledge with all our professionals. Crane flies are best controlled in the spring from February to April, but treatment can begin as early as the fall.
