Lawn insects will attack your grass at the root, eating until there's nothing left.
There are many types of lawn insects in our region that will rapidly attack your grass. Signs of an insect infestation in your grass include an increased presence of skunks, birds, raccoons, torn up grass, and patches of brown, dead turf. These insects will start eating your grass at the root and won't stop until there's nothing left. Our lawn care experts can spot these signs and help you identify these common lawn insects in our area, which include:
- Armyworms: Armyworms are tiny larvae that actually march like an army across a lawn. They are nocturnal, making it difficult to spot them. A sign of armyworm infestation is sudden dead patches of grass appearing in the yard.
- Bluegrass billbugs: These weevils infest Kentucky bluegrass and other cool-season grasses. They feed on grass stems, which can cause the grass to die.
- Chinch bugs: Chinch bugs actually suck the moisture from grass blades, causing it to turn yellow and die. If your lawn doesn't turn green again after watering, it's a good sign that your lawn has chinch bugs.
- Cicada Killers: Cicaca killer wasps are lawn pests that are known for feeding off of cicadas and causing visible damage to your lawn.
- Flea & Tick Control: Our flea and tick treatments reduce the dangers of flea and tick bites to your family and pets.
- White grubs: When grubs hatch, they feed on the roots of your grass. A large grub infestation can quickly kill off your lawn.
- Mole & Vole Prevention: Moles and voles are roden that build underground tunnels that cause devastating damage to your lawn and its root structure.
- Sod webworms: These are a type of caterpillar that live just above your lawn's soil. They create a small web and eat your grass, typically only in sunny areas of the lawn.
Our surface insect control treatments work to eliminate these pests from your lawn so that you can enjoy a beautiful, verdant yard.
Moles and voles damage your Emmaus, PA lawn by digging tunnels.
Voles and moles are often confused for one another, but they are actually very different. A vole is a rodent that, at first glance, resembles a field mouse. They are stockier than a mouse and create tunnels near the surface of your Emmaus, PA lawn as they eat grass stems and blades. Generally, their tunnels are about two inches wide and look almost snake-like.
A mole, however, is a carnivore that feasts on earthworms, grubs, and other insects. They have oddly-shaped noses, tiny eyes, and large front flippers.They dig underground tunnels that start as large volcano-shaped mounds in your yard.
Both of these pests damage your lawn and its underlying root structure by digging these tunnels. Our lawn care company can provide mole and vole treatments that will deter these animals from entering your yard.
