Lawn Insect & Grub Control Services: An Enhancement to Your Lawn Care Program
Grubs and damaging insects can undermine even the healthiest of landscapes. (As if they weren’t enough of a problem on their own, the presence of grubs in your soil can attract skunks, and other animals that will tear up your lawn looking to feed on them.)
If an infestation already exists on your lawn, SavATree’s lawn specialists will identify the pests present, and recommend the best treatment for that species. And to help head off a future infestation, they will also develop a comprehensive lawn care program that includes insect and/or grub management.
Step One: Proper Identification by Experts
There are a variety of insects and grubs that feed on the roots and blades of grass, sometimes producing results that look very similar to lawn diseases. And as with diseases, the symptoms can be difficult to diagnose unless you know what to look for – and our SavATree lawn specialists do. Their accurate diagnosis is a critical first step in creating an effective management plan. [Learn more about our Lawn Disease Treatment services.]
Effective, Timely, and Responsible Treatments
Your SavATree lawn specialist has extensive knowledge and experience treating common lawn insects and grubs. Your specialist will inspect your turf regularly in order to spot unwanted insect populations early. They will then recommend an effective insect management program that also addresses your personal preferences.
To optimize insect and grub management in your lawn throughout the year, your arborist may recommend a program that integrates curative treatments as well as preventive measures – all carefully timed to the seasonal life cycles of the pests.
When we select the technical materials used in our insect and grub control services, we consult the Environmental Impact Quotient (EIQ) – a formula and data source created by The New York State Integrated Pest Management Program at Cornell University. The EIQ shows us the environmental and health impacts of available products and ingredients. Armed with that information, we are able to make responsible choices in optimizing the health of your lawn.
Professional lawn care can help you achieve thick, healthy turf with vibrant color. SavATree’s lawn experts are ready to help, whether you need to treat your existing lawn for insects and grubs, have problems growing grass, or just want to learn more about SavATree service options.
