Chafer Beatles

European Chafer Control

European Chafer is one of the most damaging turf pests in Vancouver, West Vancouver, and North Vancouver. The grubs feed on the roots of turf, causing the grass to weaken. Rodents and birds will then come at night and turn over the grass to uncover and feed on the grubs, causing extensive damage to the turf. If left untreated, the grubs will multiply and damage will get worse over time. The use of pesticides to control chafer is not permitted in Vancouver, West Vancouver, North Vancouver, or the District of North Vancouver.

Fortunately Meridian offers two methods of non-chemical control.

Nematodes are one of the most effective forms of control for the European chafer beetle. Nematodes are microscopic parasitic worms that burrow into the grubs and kill them from within. They are not harmful to people, pets or animals. Our technicians can treat areas of any size. This treatment is time sensitive and must be applied between the first and third weeks of July to attack the grubs before laying their eggs. Booking treatment by mid May is recommended to ensure an appointment.

Grub Gone is a new treatment composed of a naturally occurring bacteria called Bacillus Thuringiensis. It is a granular powder that is applied to lawns with a drop spreader and is activated upon being watered into the soil afterwards. This product is not considered a pesticide and is therefore permitted for use in Vancouver, West Vancouver, and North Vancouver. While Nematodes are the more proven treatment, Grub Gone can be used in both spring and fall if the window for applying Nematodes has been missed.

Mobile Tree and Shrub Watering

Mobile Tree and Shrub Watering

For properties without irrigation, Meridian Landscaping offers a mobile watering service to water shrubs, trees, or flowerbeds. Our watering truck is equipped with a 350 gallon water tank, and 300 feet of hose. Amount and frequency can be customized when setting up a watering plan for your property.

 

Tree Bag

Tree Bags

For trees that require extra watering, above what is permitted under water restrictions during the hot months of the year, Meridian can equip your trees with Gatorbags. Gatorbags hold 15 gallons of water, which is then slowly released into the root zone of the tree. Meridian will then fill the bags weekly, giving the trees the extra water they need to make it through a hot and dry summer. This product is especially good for newly planted trees that need help getting established, or trees showing signs of stress.

Horticultural Vinegar

Horticultural Vinegar

Meridian Landscaping uses Horticultural Vinegar as a way to control weeds growing in patios, rock beds, or any surface that does not have plants or grass. This chemical is an effective and environmentally conscious alternative to Roundup, which was banned in Vancouver for cosmetic use to control weeds several years ago. It is also a much more effective long term solution to controlling pavement weeds than cutting them back with a weed eater, which does not remove the roots. The treatment works best in sunny weather with a temperature above 15 degrees.
