I am going to see a prospective client tomorrow who has badgers ripping up her newly laid (8 weeks ago) lawn. The badgers must be after food but what do you think? Worms or Chafer Grubs? isn't it too late for Chafers.
I'll have a dig around tomorrow and look for any larvae but am told the ground is very wet so was wondering if worms are the problem.
Any ideas, anyone?
Not my field, but did once have to build a croquet lawn for a client.
Loads of badgers on site and everything else that could destroy the lawn in area, (right next door to large woodland with no fence at all). To cap it all of the owners were strictly organic.
Andy Jarman at JFC Monros gave us everything, garlic barrier seemed ok for a while then badgers came and had a right royal party.
In the end he supplied some thin 'buzzer' tape, anchored onto tent pegs at a height of 300mm, this tape whirred in the wind, (can't remember product name), but it kept everything away including a rubbish golfer who had hit his ball onto the area and was feared to venture after it.
Prefer the dog food in next doors garden though, much cheaper and environmentally friendly as well.
Alternately pee all around the site, works for most other mammals.
