A destructive insect outbreak is currently plaguing the lawns in the Abbey Gardens at Bury St Edmonds – and action is being taken to address the matter.
Chafer grubs are eating the turf in the formal area that is located at the centre of the gardens.
Further damage is being caused as birds and other predatory animals are digging up the soil in search of a tasty treat.
Parks manager for the local council Damien Parker said: "It makes the area look a little untidy but as soon as the grass is being pulled up our gardeners are going to reinstate and treat it."
The St Edmundsbury Borough Council is using the biological control nematodes in an effort to destroy the grubs.
MowDIRECT customers could take a look at the Solo 485/D Diaphragm-Pump Backpack Sprayer if they are facing similar issues, as it offers a practical, convenient fast way to apply pesticides.
