Leatherjackets are a common lawn pest that can quickly ravish a healthy lawn, but did you know they prefer young new lawns over old ones? That's right, leatherjackets are commonly found infesting the lawns of new build properties where the lawn has only recently been laid. You might also find them in young turf or lawns that have recently been overseeded.

But why do leatherjackets prefer new lawns? Well, the answer is - they're fussy eaters! They have a very specific taste for young lawns because young lawns have sweet, tender roots. The roots of older lawns are bitter, tougher and harder to chew through.
