There are a few telltale signs of infestation when it comes to lawn insects that you will want to look for. The most noticeable way to see an infestation is if you begin seeing mounds of soil or you can feel spongy turf when you put pressure on your lawn. If you begin to notice these or any other signs of damage give us a call so we can identify the insect or issue plaguing your lawn.
We have a team of experts who can identify what insect is causing your lawn damage and provide you with a treatment plan to remove them. Once we’ve got that insect removed, we will give you a plan on how we will fix whatever damage they may have caused.
Here is a list of the most common insects that pop up in our area and a little information about them
Armyworms may be bland in appearance, but can be quite frightening when a pack of them moves through your lawn eating all the grass they can. Their telltale signs can be easy to confuse with heat stress since they both often leave your lawn looking discolored. The easiest way to tell the difference between Armyworms and Heat stress is if you can look through the grass and see the grass has been chewed through.
The most common species of Grubs in our area are the larvae of Japanese beetles and Junebugs. These specific grubs are usually most active during the month of August and they love to eat roots. These bugs often leave behind signs of damage like spongy turf or break up the grass when it can be pulled up in patches.
Chinch Bugs love the grass most frequently used in North and South Carolina specifically during the summer months. They will rip apart blades of grass to get to the liquid inside for food. If you’re starting to see a lot of yellow and brown patches of grass you may have a Chinch Bug infestation.
