You love your lawn and do your best to take care of it. But, how healthy is your lawn? Every lawn sees its share of bugs, insects and other pests. But, a healthy lawn is more resistant to the pests that can patrol your lawn and take it over.
How Can You Detect Pests Problems on Your Lawn?
A beautiful, green lawn is a sight to behold. It can be the most appealing feature of your home. When too many unwanted lawn pests get hold of it, they can take over your lawn and damage the grass. They can cause the grass to be brown and sickly due to pest invasion. Some of the signs to detect pest problems include: wilting blades, dead and dying grass patches, bite marks on grass, brown spots and insects laying all over the grass.
What Are Some Common Lawn Pests?
Lawn pests come in different sizes and shapes, and you don’t always notice them right away. Some of them even live under the ground so you never really see them. You can tell they’re there because they eat away at your grass. Some of the more common pests that invade your lawn include:
- Chinch bugs.
- Carpenter ants.
- Worms (sod webworm, armyworm, cutworm).
How Can You Treat Lawn Pests?
The first step in keeping pests off your lawn is ensuring that the lawn is healthy. It’s difficult to keep all pests off your lawn all the time. But, less is always better and your desire is to have as few as possible on your lawn. A well-maintained lawn is less likely to be the home of many different pests. Keeping the lawn maintained includes mowing regularly and fertilizing and watering when needed to keep the grass strong. The stronger your grass is, the more it can fight off any annoying pest infestations.
