Above & Below Ground Insects
In order to eliminate lawn pests, its best to identify the type of insect and consider the insect-control options associated with it. Lawn-damaging insects can be classified as either above ground-feeding or below ground-feeding insects. Insects that feed above ground, like sod webworms and chinch bugs, will chew on grass blades and suck vital plant juices from them, ruining the quality of your lawn. If you see coppery patches in your lawn that resemble drought, you may have an infestation. Lawn pest control involves spraying the surface of your lawn with products that will remain on the blades of grass and not wash off.
Insects that feed below ground, such as grubs, will devour a lawn’s root system. Additionally, grubs can lead to a problem with birds and small mammals tearing up your yard to feed on the larvae. While a healthy lawn can still sustain itself with four to six grubs per square foot, 10 or more grubs per square foot may cause damage, especially if your lawn is weak. If you see irregular brown spots or have small sections of turf that can be easily pulled back, your lawn may have a grub problem. Effective grub control involves treating below the soil.
What is Perimeter Pest Control?
Minimize your need for interior pest control with services from Lawn Plus. To prevent infestations inside the property, our team offers Perimeter services to facilitate home pest control by creating a lawn barrier outside. We treat four to six feet of soil around your house as well as two to three feet up the foundation wall. Crawling insects that are the most active in these areas will avoid entering inside the home.
Not only does Lawn Plus provide excellent pest services, we also specialize in land clearing, tree and shrub treatment, lawn care, and excavation. To take your lawn to the next level, we sell and service Ground Logic equipment to keep yards looking their best. Located in West Alexandria, we serve Dayton and nearby areas including Eaton, Kettering, Huber Heights, and Centerville, and areas further south including Cincinnati, Fairfield, Liberty Township, and Springboro. From roaches to termites, indoors and out, we’ve got you covered. Contact us at (937) 839-5296 to schedule a lawn care evaluation or learn more about us and the local organizations we give back to.
