When treating your lawn with nematodes to control European Chafer Beetle (PDF), your lawn should be as moist as a wrung-out sponge. The amount of water needed will depend on your lawn, soil depth, and weather conditions. If you need more water than provided under the watering regulations, you can request a temporary Lawn Watering Permit from the City.
There is no cost for a permit for nematode treatment.
Permits are valid for three weeks (21 days) from the permit issue date and only apply to treatment area.
Permits cannot be renewed.
Note: Permits issued under Stage 1 restrictions are valid until expiry. No new permits are issued or renewed during stage 2 restrictions.
