When you put a significant amount of effort into your yard care, pest control can sometimes be the last thing on your mind. But it’s important to keep pest control at the forefront of your lawn care because no one wants to create a green, luscious lawn to have it infested with grubs, ticks, fleas, and mosquitoes.
Lawns that have pest problems are often not found out until it’s too late, and turf that ends up having to be replaced or your lawn begins crumbling. It is a good idea to be constantly checking for pest control needs throughout the season to ensure your yard stays healthy.
A pest-infested lawn can suffer from a wide variety of things if the problem goes unnoticed, untreated, or unprevented for too long. No homeowner or business property owner wants to have to deal with that. On top of that, no one should have to.
If you’re skeptical about what kinds of pests hide around your yard all spring and summer long, and you aren’t sure which ones you should be worried about, you have come to the right place.
Grubs can arguably be the most damaging insect to your lawn. Once they infest your yard, they start to multiply pretty quickly. These little white insects lay eggs that hatch all season long, and each of them lays more eggs, so the cycle continues.
Identifying an issue can be the first step, but for it to be identified, your lawn will have to show negative symptoms. These symptoms include brown patches, spongy grass, and pooling water. If you notice your property is experiencing some of those, you should investigate whether or not the soil easily comes up in little rolls or patches. If it happens, you definitely have grubs and require pest control.
Many, Many Mosquitoes
These little flying guys are not only creepy, they also carry a lot of diseases and are harmful to your lawn and gardens. The mosquito can target plants and allow some plants to grow fungi, making it tough for a plant to thrive. Not to mention the fact that it’s pretty tough to host events where these bugs are living. Who can have fun when they are worried about being bitten by mosquitoes?
Treating Ticks and Finding Fleas
Ticks and fleas not only target your lawn, they can also target your family, friends, and pets too. This particular pest can cause your lawn to die if you are not properly, safely treating them. If you use too harsh chemicals to treat ticks and fleas, your lawn and garden can suffer — alongside your pets and children. Ensuring you are using a safe, earth-friendly way to address these pests can make a huge difference in your lawn’s longevity.
