Are Earthworms spoling your Lawn?

CastClear - EarthwormThe worms do a splendid job in the soil just beneath the grass crown, but it is a pity that their soil cast deposits pose such a problem for lawn owners.

CastClear is an organic non-pesticide control solution available to domestic lawn owners to deter the worms from casting.   There are only five types of casting worms found in UK lawns. 

Other European countries also suffer worm worm casts on turf.  The problem can be solved  CastClear is the solution to lawn soil casts.

Deter the worms from coming closer to the surface and the lawn will remain firmer, dryer, cleaner and grass cover over the winter will be retained. The lawn may be mown later in the growing season too. Worm casts deposited on the lawns surface will quickly clog up and stick to the moving parts of cylinder and rotary mower and also accumulate around rollers and wheels and operators feet giving them the classical 1970’s platform shoes in no time! The ideal time for worm cast control is traditionally at the very end of the summer leading into the autumn when rainfall and humid temperatures are expected through to the spring when mowing activity increases.

CastClear does not kill the worms, merely forming a barrier in the soil that the worms will not pass through as it is an irritant to them when they eat the soil containing the nutrient based deterrent and they stay  deeper in the soil for up to 20 days whilst the chemical is effective in the soil.  Re treatment will be required every 10 – 20 days following the first application at just one third of the initial dose rate.
