Learn About Weed Man's Safe Control of Lawn Insects

Did you know? Insects love your lawn almost as much as you do. Most homeowners misdiagnosis insect damage for drought or disease and if you do then they can really do a lot of damage that is expensive to repair. Other home owners may have drought or disease and they spend money on treating what they think is an insect issue.

 

Many insects and insect-like pest's damage lawns causing the grass to turn brown and die. Some pests infest the soil and attack the plant roots, some feed on the plants’ leaves and stems, while others suck juice from the plants. Other insects and insect-like pests inhabit lawns, but do not damage them. Some of the pests are annoying but some of them can be a health concern like Deer Ticks that carry Lyme Disease.


An Essential Step: Diagnosis


If left unchecked, turf insects such as Chinch Bugs, Leather Jackets, Sod Webworms and Cutworms can cause considerable damage to your lawn. Damage usually begins in small, scattered patches, which may merge into large dead areas. Weed Man's Surface Insect Control begins with the identification of the insect causing damage to the lawn. Because some insects can only be controlled at certain times during their life cycles, Weed Man Lawn Care technicians are trained to identify the insect responsible for the damage, the specific life cycle of that insect and the exact level of infestation.
