Yes it looks like a Leatherjacket caterpillar. Your lawn must be in a real state if hundreds came off it.

Treatment against leatherjackets is very simple. Improving your lawn may be more difficult.

one of my neighbors had that infestation............albeit a small front lawn....sorted the leather jackets then cut all the turf off down to 4" forked it and relaid with a thick turf...if you have bad infestation you are best to start again..............

Would love to know what the simple treatment is.


I accept that many of the effective chemical treatments of the past have been outlawed.
