Grub, Insect and Disease Control

Grub and Insect Control

Grubs do more damage to lawns every year than any other insect. What are they? They are the larvae of beetles that eat the roots of your lawn. Sometimes they are able to devour an entire lawn in one season. Most of their damage shows up in late summer as large brown patches. Sometimes the first evidence that they are there is when raccoons and other animals tear up your lawn at night trying to find the grubs  as part of their dinner.

There are other insects that can affect the health of humans and pets. Most of these are crawling surface insects like ants, ticks, and fleas. They live and breed on the surface of your lawn.

Flea & Tick Control   

Many times people and pets are put at risk when fleas and ticks are breeding in the surface of your lawn. Don't take chances with your family and pet's health, eliminate the problem before it becomes an issue.

Fungus and Disease Control

Many different factors contribute to fungus and disease in your lawn. Many of these can be avoided with proper maintenance practices. These would include aerating your lawn every fall to help alleviate compaction, thatch, and breathe life back into the roots. Proper mowing practices include only mowing 1/3 of the grass blade off at one time. Anything more will contribute to thatch build up. Only water your lawn during the early morning hours so the blades have a chance to dry out during the day. Watering at night allows the grass blades to stay wet too long without drying and will promote disease.  

If you are experiencing problems with your lawn and think it could be related to insect or disease problems, please give us a call and get the expert advice you need to resolve the problem quickly.
