Best to KEEP OFF the grass right now. You are doing more harm than good. ,if you have already spiked it then leave well alone
If leatherjackets efc have damaged the lawn they will have done their worst by now
When comditions improve ....dry out......give grass a high cut. In spring rake it lightly and reseed bare patches. A good feed in mid spring will reclaim your lawn
In September consider nematodes to control leatherjackets and chafers
Lawns, like everything else, have taken quite a battering this year.
