Surface Insect Management
Surface feeding lawn pests can create large problems if left unchecked.
What it does
In and around the home, ants, flies, and mosquitoes are considered the “pestiest” of pests, because they can spoil activities like backyard cookouts. But remember, a lawn, especially one that has been weakened by hot summer weather can easily fall prey to insect problems that are unique to grasses. It would be a mistake to underestimate the damage your lawn can sustain from insect pests.
Tiny insects are hard to detect, and they can cause brown spots and other damage to your lawn before you know it. Their eggs are near-microscopic, and the different stages of insect growth make it confusing. In addition to understanding what products to use and when to use them.
Chinch bugs thrive in hot, dry conditions, so it’s important to keep your turf well-watered in the summer. Your lawn will need ideally 1” to 1-1/4” of water per week. Chinch bugs can have up to seven generations per season, with adults laying up to 300 eggs during their short lifespan.
Other pests such as Armyworm, Cutworm, Sod Webworm, leafhoppers, green bugs and more can cause serious damage to turfgrass. If some of these pests make their presence known, prompt treatment will be necessary to prevent major damage from occurring.
Your lawn can also be trying to deal with a variety of summer stress factors, such as weeds, heat, heavy traffic, fungus or drought. The answer is to keep your lawn well-fed while you defend it against insects.
