Lawn Pest Control Products

Many homeowners face the battle against lawn problems and having to keep up with landscape maintenance. Also, many people do not understand that lawn care and pest control may go hand in hand with each other. Without the proper knowledge, it is not possible to take care of your lawn correctly. The main problems that homeowners will face with lawn care are weeds, fungus, and lawn pests. By using appropriate lawn care products when it is necessary, it is possible to obtain a beautiful lawn without having to worry about pests or weeds destroying your grass.

Lawn Care Products for Weeds

Weeds may be the biggest problem in lawn care that homeowners have to face. Weeds are plants that compete with turf-grasses for the same nutrition. This usually results in grass that is less healthy and thinner and ultimately, the lawn starts to look dead with yellow-ish turf-grass. Weed control is a necessary step to obtaining even looking grass, brighter and more natural green colors. Naturally, regular maintenance on weeds should be done just as fertilizers are applied. There are pre-emergent weed control products available that can be applied before weeds take over your lawn. Likewise, there are post-emergent weed control products available to treat your lawn if a weed infestation occurs.

Lawn Care Products for Fungus

Fungus that is found on soil is the cause of most of the severe lawn diseases. They may also be the most difficult to treat for. The biggest reason why fungal diseases occur on lawns is because they are misinterpreted by homeowners and incorrectly identified as lawn weeds or even lawn pests. They are unable to identify the source of the damage and apply all the wrong insecticides and pesticides directly on to the lawn which ultimately creates more damage than the initial damage that was caused by fungus. By using the correct fungicides for lawn care and following the correct methods of fungus prevention is the best way to protect the lawn grass from fungal diseases. There are several different reasons why fungus will take over a lawn. These reasons include improper watering to the lawn, the lack of aeration, using the wrong or too much fertilizer, soil compaction, and etc.

Lawn Care Products for Pests

Turf-grass or a lawn environment is mostly a monoculture, which means that there is a large planting of just one species of plant or just one breed of grass. Therefore, when pests interrupt that environment, an infestation can destroy a lawn within just a few days. Although pests are not a common cause for lawn damage, they are capable of occasionally damaging or even killing turf-grass. Some signs of pest damage to lawns are changes in color from green to yellow-brown, discolored patches that may merge into large dead areas of grass, and etc. Before taking any pest control on lawns, homeowners must identify the lawn pest and must be sure that it is actually an insect infestation that is causing the damage. Using incorrect pesticides or lawn care products that do not target the specified pest, it can ultimately lead to more damage to your lawn.

Q. What company should I choose one power spraying Cy kick, the other power spraying a product called demand cs. Both coming on a quarterly basis
I've decided to use a pest service on my home in Austin tx, I know the heat breaks down product as well as rains that we get in the Austin area every once in a while, I've broke my decision down to two companies, one is saying the product they will power spray is Cy-kick. The other company says they will be power spraying the product Demand cs. My main bugs that we are dealing with are scorpions, spiders, Beatles, and an occasional wasp.. Both companies are around the same price both wanting to come out quarterly. What's the main differences and if you were in my shoes and with your expertise, which product would you choose to be treated on your home for those specific issues.
A.   We recommend using Demand CS because it is a micro-encapsulated product. Therefore, Demand CS has a longer residual time.

A.   There are several different products for Dust Mite control. Look into Steri-fab, which is a spray that does not have a residual but is great for an initial treatment or one time treatment. Also, Bedlam Bed Bug Spray has dust mites on the product label that is a great product as well and has a short residual of about 1 week to 2 weeks.
