This time of year, the lawn can be attacked by insect’s larvae Tipula paludosa. They are under the soil and feed with grass roots. You will realize their attack when you’ll see some of the lawn parts destroyed, where grass gets a brown color. Larvae can be found by digging a few inches into the soil. To combat them you have to use special pesticides that you can find in the plant shops.
