Insect Control

Benefits of Lawn & Garden Insect Control

When is the last time you considered insect control to improve your lawn? You may spend a lot of time in your yard tackling nuisances such as crabgrass and dandelions. But your land may be under attack by more than just weeds and could be infested with insects set on destroying your grass.

Insects are often a major cause of turf decline. Before you try to handle the problem yourself, consult a professional who can supply you with the best insect control plan of action.

Proper Prevention

Of course, the best way to avoid the need for insect control is to prevent it.

  • Keep your lawn healthy with frequent mowing, watering, fertilization, and aeration to deter certain species.
  • A healthy lawn helps your lawn survive others. A strong lawn endures mild infestations or can overcome them with immediate growth.
  • Also,  cut back your shrubs and bushes to avoid over-growth. The more material they have to work with, the more they’ll set up shop in your brush.
  • Always put food away when finished, avoid crumbs, and quickly wipe spills that may occur to avoid attracting ants and flying insects.
