Protect Your Lawn from Mites
Lawn mites love Colorado’s dry climate—but that doesn’t mean you have to put up with them.
What to look for
Areas of your lawn damaged by mites will appear brown and straw-like. However, these areas won’t be visible until your lawn begins to turn green during the spring, and by then most of the damage has been done.
There are several things you can do to avoid mite damage.
How to beat mites
Our lawn mite control program is composed of monthly applications over the course of the dryer fall, winter, and spring months. These applications will help manage the mites and prevent further harm to your lawn.
You can help on your own, too. Pay special attention to hot spots that are prone to quick water evaporation. That includes:
- Around trees and evergreens
- Sloped areas
- South and west facing areas receiving direct sun
Periodic watering can make these areas less attractive to mites.
