Lawn Treatment Plans
Protect your South Florida property with a lawn treatment plan from Native Pest Management. If you are like most homeowners, you care about the quality of your yard, the health of your lawn, and the appearance of your property in general. Without quality fertilizers and treatments, many lawn enthusiasts find their plants growing sick, becoming infested, or simply withering away from lack of proper nutrients. Our goal is to keep all properties alive and thriving.
Typically when people discuss lawn care and lawn pest control treatments they think of the initial treatment that most landscaping companies provide in the springtime — preparing the lawn and landscaping for growth. While this initial aeration, seeding, and fertilization is without a doubt important to the development of the lawn’s seasonal growth, it does not prepare the lawn for the various pests that it will without a doubt attract. When you get in touch with our team of turf specialists, not only can we prime the growth of your beautiful lawn, but we can also periodically come back and defend it from pests that might threaten its aesthetic value. Are you looking to schedule a treatment? If so, we urge you to contact us today.
Please reach out to our team today to learn more about the following lawn treatment plans:
- Monthly – With monthly care for your plants, you can watch as they thrive and grow strong, even in the intense Florida climate. We included fertilizer in our monthly package, as well as treatment to prevent insects, fungus growth, and weeds — because a beautiful yard deserves proper protection from pests.
- Every Other Month – Our more basic plan involves treating your property every other month in order to keep it looking beautiful and healthy. When it comes to landscape protection, it is imperative to have your lawn treated every other month at a minimum — keeping pests at bay.
What Pests Are Most Threatening To Your Lawn?
Whiteflies – Whiteflies are a pest that almost everyone in South Florida, including Palm Beach County, has come in contact with. These small white insects are closely related to aphids but can do twice the damage if not correctly managed. Whiteflies can typically be found on the underside of leaves and affected plants can be identified by the honeydew (excrement) that the whitefly leaves on the plant after consuming its juices. Luckily, treating whiteflies is as simple as scheduling a lawn care and ornamental yard treatment.
Chinch Bugs – Chinch Bugs are small, black and white, winged bugs that can be found on sunny patches of turfgrass. Chinch bugs are usually attracted to lawns that have been under-watered and are susceptible to damage. Large patches of browning grass can be a sign of lawn infestation, as the insect population sucks the fluid out of the grass blades. If you notice your lawn starting to brown in large irregular patches, it is imperative that you get in touch with us right away.
Grub Worms – Grub worms are a subterranean pest that feeds on the roots of your lawn. Grub worms are the larvae of Japanese beetles and can systematically destroy your lawn from the ground up. In addition to being dangerous to the roots of your lawn, grub worms can cause greater issues, as animals that feed on the grubs may dig holes in your turfgrass to access the pests from the shallow soil. If you have detected grub worms on your law, it is imperative that you contact us before the damages become too great to fix.
Armyworms – Armyworms are typically thought of as a menace to crops like soybeans and corn, but they can do just as much damage to your lawn if you aren’t careful. In the fall, armyworms scour the landscape for food before they later become moths — and one of their favorite meals happens to be well-kept grass. Luckily, armyworms are easy to identify and they are often found in large groups wriggling around your blades of grass. If you have identified a large number of armyworms on your property, we urge you to get in touch with us before it is too late.
Sod Webworms – Commonly referred to as the larvae of “lawn moths,” sod webworms are small silver striped worms that are known to destroy lawns. If you live in the South Florida area, there is no doubt that you have at one point seen the adult form of the sod webworm, as they are commonly seen taking flight over turfgrass on evenings. While the mere presence of sod webworms might not threaten your lawn, it is important to have a professional lawn pest control provider visit your home to diagnose the severity of the infestation.
Fungi – While fungi are not typically framed as a pest, it is living and can damage your lawn — and that is enough for us to define it as a pest. Some funguses can develop as a result of your South Florida lawn being over watered, while others develop as a result of lawns being underwatered. In order to determine the correct type of fungus that is affecting your lawn, as well as the corrective action that should be taken, contact one of our pest control services technicians today!
