Don't Let the Bugs Get to You OR YOUR PLANTS

Hello Everyone,
This is the time that everything starts to come to life, warmer days, daily showers and yes including them pesky insects.

Turfgrass is grown in many environments and for different uses, such as home lawns, parks, athletic fields, cemeteries, rights-of-way, golf courses, sod farms, and pastures. The intensity of turfgrass management largely depends on the particular species or variety of grass and its intended use.
Several insects and mites feed on grass, but not all of them cause economic or aesthetic damage. Many are harmless, some are beneficial, and some are pests. Only a few cause significant damage and need immediate control. Keep in mind that insects are only one of many potential causes for thin or brown grass. Diseases, nematodes, drought, and nutritional disorders can also be damaging. Correct identification of the problem can save money and prevent unnecessary pesticide applications.
 In general, healthy turf is less vulnerable to pests and can recover faster from an infestation. Avoid overusing soluble nitrogen fertilizers, mow at the correct height for the grass species, reduce thatch, and avoid over-watering to minimize pest habitat. Check every 7 to 10 days for pest activity, especially in "hot spots" where damage tends to reoccur.

  We are certified in controlling insects as well as fertilization to maintain a beautiful lawn all year long.
