Even though you have appropriate watering, the lawn withers, dries out and discolours you will also find the presence of yellow and spongy patches which you can easily lift as a carpet.
During spring and fall, you will notice holes in your lawn done by skunks or raccoons for whom these larvas are a real buffet.
It is important to maintain the lawn at a height of 8 to 10 cm (3-4 inches). It creates a barrier in the laying of the grubs and will help the development of the roots.
The light attracts the females who are looking for a place to lay their eggs so switch off your outdoor lights.
Choose one of our plans to keep your lawn healthy.
We apply a preventive treatment, from June to July. This treatment ensures a maximal control against white grubs and we offer a guaranteed protection.
Spiders weave their web to catch their preys; mosquitoes or other insects. We often find them on houses, garden sheds, fences, around above swimming pools and humid places.
To decrease their numbers, switch off your lights in the evening, this way you do not attract any insects.
To be at peace throughout the summer season, we treat them at the beginning of June as well as at the beginning of July.
Ants do not cause any damage to your lawn, but can become very intrusive. We find them especially in very places or on mounds on your lawn or between paving stones.
Always keep the boundaries of your property as well as your land, clean and without wood fragments, because they make their ant-hill where there is food.
Ants are very difficult to control. It is a question of finding the colony to be able to treat them and better contain them. Contact us and one of our specialists will go and analyze your situation.
The chinch bugs puncture the leaves and stalks of grasses to suck up the sap and inject their toxic enzymes which will cause the withering and the death of the grass blades.
Between the middle of July and the middle of August, we can observe small turfs of yellow grass which will change into straw brown.
Maintain your lawn at a height of 8 to 10 cm (3-4 inches).
Sow the damaged zones.
Because the bugs survive better in winter when the layer of thatch is more than a centimetre of thickness, you will favour the decomposition of the thatch by making a soil aeration.
The treatment is made right from the appearance of yellowish grass or insects. A fast intervention will control more easily the population.
The sod webworm is a small moth from ½ to 2 cm in length which flies by zigzags on the lawn at night during spring and summer or when you walk on your grass.
We notice the damage at the end of August and even more in September when the lawn becomes yellowed or tanned in easy to tear patches. The damage looks like those of drought.
No preventive treatment exists this day, so it is necessary to watch for the adult’s presence regularly, to remove thatch and to aerate the lawn in spring.
Maintain the lawn at a height of 8 to 10 cm (3-4 inches) and water it so the larvas will not have a chance to develop.
Contact us, as soon as you notice them, our professionals will know how to confirm their presence and can recommend a treatment.
