Insect Damage in Dayton and Cincinnati Lawns

Insect damage in Dayton and Cincinnati lawns can happen to any yard.  Our PureLawn Program is designed to build up the soil and promote massive roots to fight off stresses like drought and insect damage.  Even the healthiest lawn though can be attacked by billbugs, grubs, chinch bugs, and other turf destroying insects in Dayton and Cincinnati.

Don’t let your lawn look like the picture above.  This lawn has been destroyed by chinch bugs.  So what can you do?  Protect your beautiful lawn with a preventative insect control.  PureLawn is proud to state that we use an EPA reduced risk insecticide that has a low impact on fish, honey bees, and all other non-target organisms.  It is the only grub control that was not required to put a signal word on their label.

So when do these insects destroy lawns?  You see bluegrass billbug damage during the Summer and getting a preventative treatment down as quickly as possible is a good idea.  We would suggest getting a preventative insect control down right now to protect against all turf destroying insects.  Billbugs are doing damage right now.  Chinch bugs do damage on sunny lawns in the hot part of the Summer.  Grubs do their damage mostly in the Fall, but we apply a protective insect treatment now that prevents damage from all lawn insects in Cincinnati and Dayton.

How do you know if you have grub damage?  You can easily pull up the grass like it is sod that is not rooted.  It will pull up like carpet because the little pesky grubs chew on the roots of your grass until it turns brown and dies.  You can usually find the white grubs in the soil as you pull up the sod.

Receiving a preventative insect control is health insurance for your lawn and will save you from an expensive Fall Seeding or Sod job.  Contact us now to get on our list.  If you don’t get this treatment down soon you may not be able to prevent billbug damage.
