Pests in Your Lawn
Chinch bugs, army worms and sod web worms are just some of the many lawn pests that can devastate and inflict damage to your turf. These particular insects have different life cycles. Knowing when to target these pests is critical to controlling them. Our professional technicians are experts in knowing when and how to target and control these pests. Fire ants and mosquitos can also be a summertime nuisance, that we have programs for. Ask us about bundling these services with your lawn & ornamental programs so you can enjoy your lawn without the constant biting from these annoying pests.
Pests in Your Ornamentals
Certain ornamental plants can provide food for aphids, and scale insects. Some insects produce honey dew that can invite nuisance ants that can, and will, invade your home. Proper nutrients and preventive treatment will encourage the growth and vigor of ornamental plants which in turn will help reduce the threat of insects and disease. We also provide nutrients specialized for your plants.
Brown patch, fairy ring, root rot and leaf spot fungus are all common diseases in Florida. These diseases can cause irregular lawn shape, patches of brown or discolored grass and even result in lawn death. Regular, routine treatments can work to curb these damaging problems or prevent them altogether.
Weeds are a common occurrence in our warm climate and there are numerous types and classes of weeds found in South Florida. The best defense against weeds is a healthy, thick turf that is disease and pest free. We have been very successful in controlling weed populations with our pro-active methods using a combination of herbicides and lawn maintenance strategies to keep your lawn healthy and beautiful.
An unhealthy lawn can play host to numerous turf diseases which can play havoc on your landscape. Our warm temperatures and high humidity can encourage turf diseases. Improper irrigation and mowing habits are a large factor for propagating disease, our technicians are trained in giving recommendations to prevent disease damage caused by these cultural factors. Proper maintenance along with prescribed treatments by our trained professional technicians will help decrease the risk of disease within your turf and assist in ensuring a quality lawn.
