Your home is your castle. You’ve worked hard to keep the interior clean and well decorated, while the outside is beautifully painted and free of any stray debris. Still, regardless of all those efforts, if you don’t have the right garden pest control program for your lawn and garden, your house will never be able to give you the level of beauty you’ve worked so hard to achieve. Having a garden pest control program at your home in St. Petersburg, Tampa, Sarasota, and Polk and Hernando counties, is crucial if you want to keep your lawn and trees healthy, green and free from pests.

Garden pest control programs help to nourish your grass and plants at the right times of the year, as well as treat your lawn and garden to help build a resistance against turf damage, insects and weeds. A garden pest control program is especially needed to prevent the appearance of these pests on your property:

  • White Grubs—these gross things are the larvae of the June beetle. The adults lay eggs in your soil and when born, the grubs will feed off of the roots of your plants. Plants affected by these white grubs will begin to wilt suddenly. Grubs often kill small plants and gnaw holes into vegetable roots.
  • Mole Crickets—these insects damage turf and pasture grasses by tunneling since they mostly eat other insects. They rarely eat plants.
  • Sod Webworms—these guys feed off of lawns, golf course grass, corn, blue grass and much more. The larvae cause damage by cutting of the grass blades just above the thatch line. You will know if you’re infected by the small patches of cropped brown grass.
