Insect & Pest Control
Scouting is a key step in the practice of Integrated Pest Management. Prevention of problems and quick solutions to those that arise are the benefits of this routine.
Shrubs, trees, and turf are inspected for signs and symptoms of disease and insect presence. This is done several times throughout the year, but more so it is done every week as we maintain the property.
We keep our eyes open whenever we're working on-site. Any problems we find will be reported, and solutions will be recommended.
White grubs are the larval stage of beetles that feed on the roots of grass plants, killing the grass. They then pupate and emerge from the soil as adult insects. Their feeding cycle occurs in the spring for some types, but in the fall for most and this is why grub control is applied in late August or early September. We use Merit or Mach insecticides. These should be watered in as soon as possible.
