I have an infestation of leeches. 5 mins on the lawn and one is sure to be attached. How to kill them in lawn

My backyard borders bushland, with a storm water drain bordering one side. During winter specially, the ground is always wet/damp as it gets very little sun. Lawn has become unusable due to the risk of leeches attaching. How do I kill them for good?

Answer: Hi Sacha,

Thank you for contacting us regarding Leeches. Unfortunately we haven’t got any products registered against this pest for use in the home garden. Hope you can find some other products on the market which can solve the problem.

Best Regards,
