Don't let insects get the best of your yard!
While some insects are beneficial for plants and the environment, many others can wreak havoc on lawns and landscape plants causing serious damage to both your property and your budget. There are many different signs that insects have invaded your lawn and/or landscaping, but it's not always easy to discern what specific pest is to blame. This is where an experienced licensed professional can help! CCE regularly treats a variety of common invaders to our area, including Emerald Ash Borer, Japanese Beetles, and Bagworms. We also treat shrubs and trees to prevent a variety of insects and diseases. We can help determine what kind of nuisance is the cause and what lawn pest control strategy will work best.
Emerald Ash Borer – Sometimes brown patches occur because of chemicals, a mower that is too low or poor soil conditions. Insects and other pests are also the cause for many a brown patch. They go into the soil and either eat the nutrients that the plants need or destroy the root system. Either way, it leads to your grass dying from starvation. To check this you will need to inspect the affected area, and possibly remove a small section to check underneath.
Japanese Beetles - Gardens tend to attract even more pests than lawns due to the various plants, flowers and vegetables that grow there; it is a buffet for many pests.
