Sanibel Ball Field complex closed for turf parasite treatment

By Staff | Jun 30, 2009

The Sanibel Ball Field Complex, located at 3840 Sanibel-Captiva Road, will be closed to the public on Wednesday and Thursday, July 1 and 2, for treatment of nematodes.

Plant parasitic nematodes reduce the root system’s ability to utilize nutrients and water, thereby inhibiting turf growth. After treatment, improvement in the turf quality should be seen within 21 days.

The treated areas are recommended for closure for a minimum of 24 hours following the anti-parasite application.

This process was approved by the City of Sanibel Natural Resources Department.

The Sanibel Recreation Center is located at 3880 Sanibel-Captiva Road. Daily, weekly, semi-annual and annual memberships are available. For more information, call the Rec Center at 472-0345 or visit www.mysanibel.com.
