Flies, ants, worms and other pests often choose lawns to live and hide for access to shelter, protection, and sufficient food. Your concern may be more about the color and quality of your lawn than what is happening in areas you cannot see. A professional lawn care service will combine pest control and management of your lawn to present you with a healthy appearance.
Your Lawn Can Cope with Some Uninvited Pests
As part of nature, some wildlife and pests will stay within your garden and live out their natural life cycle. Problems begin to arise when too many pests live within the lawn and cause the root system to eventually fail, grass to fade in color, and some parts to die.
Where the pests feed on the root of the plants, larger areas can quickly discolor and if not treated soon after, cause the lawn to die soon after.
Part of an expert lawn care service is to inspect the lawn, find out which pests are living in the yard, and making a decision about whether the pests should be left alone, reduced in population, or eliminated. Some pests, such as ants and worms, are easy to see as they leave clear evidence behind.
You may also have dogs that leave their mark on your lawn, particularly when they use the same location regularly. Your lawn experts will make useful suggestions to help keep your lawn healthy and alive, and if necessary, treat it when the damage kills your lawn.
The use of chemicals as part of any lawn care service must be considered carefully in conjunction with how close your property is located to natural waterways.
The pesticides and fertilizers may run off from the lawn and into your local water supplies, therefore the chemicals and other provisions used for your lawn must be harmless to lifeforms living in the water.
It is important that any company that provides services use the natural life cycle and environmental changes to discourage pests from living within your lawn and garden.
