Leather Jacket Control

Leather jackets have been a great problem this spring. They have attacked young
cabbage plants  and young courgettes. They nip the stem at soil level - killing the plant.

There are few chemicals available for use on vegetables which kill
leatherjackets. The active ingredient for the job is chlorpyrifos, &
Dursban is about the only product on sale. It is water soluble and
should be well watered in to make sure it reaches the leather jackets in
the soil.
