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. How do we get rid of wild onions in our lawn?
A.   Unfortunately, there is no pre-emergent herbicide that we carry that will control wild onions but we do carry a few post-emergent herbicides that will control wild onions. Please keep in mind that many post-emergents may not be selective herbicides and may kill desired plants. Imazaquin is the recommended active ingredient to kill off wild garlic and wild onion. We carry a product called Image that has the Imazaquin active ingredient. This product is not recommended to be used on fescue and shouldn't be applied to warm season turf during green up in the spring season. Remember to wait at least 1.5 months after treatment before you begin reseeding, winter overseeding or plugging the lawn. Do not use Image on newly planted lawns and also cannot be used on winter overseeded lawns with annual ryegrass.
