Controlling Earthworm casts in lawns with Garlic

Eco Spray Logo Earthworms are great for turf, their casts are not. Controlling Worm Casts is paramount for a lawn owners, amateur or professional.

Now, a UK Company has developed a liquid and granule formulation based on 99.9% garlic food grade concentrate that in independant trials showed promise in the eco friendly soluton to worm cast eradication. Phew!

ECOspray based in Norfolk, is committed to the advancement of ethical and sustainable food production through the scientific development of naturally based products and decision support systems. Already they have already successfully developed solutions in the trapping and control of Cabbage Root Fly, Aphids and Carrot Fly.

We are currently in discussion with ECOspray and will be trialing their products as soon as the frost is out of the ground. Our trials will consist of a control of no product, the favourite Carbendazim and the garlic extract.

More to follow. Please let us have your comments on your experiences of earthworm eradication on your lawns large and small.
