If you're like most people in Citrus County, you probably associate pest control with bugs in your home. However, bugs can also cause plenty of trouble in your yard. Besides being a nuisance, insects can damage your property and create a health hazard for children and pets.
Although weeds don't technically qualify as pests, they can still mess with your lawn. Between the insects and the weeds, you might start wondering if the grass really is greener on the other side of the fence. To make matters worse, your lawn and greenery can also be victimized and destroyed by disease.
Sick lawns can be caused by certain varieties of fungus that love to feed on greenery. If you see brown patches, shriveled, shredded grass or stunted growth, it is probably due to disease caused by a fungus. Once the fungus gets going, your lawn becomes even more vulnerable to weeds and insects.
As if fungi and invasive weeds were not enough, a variety of lawn-damaging insects and their larvae can move onto your property and take up residence. Some live above ground where they feast on grass and shrub leaves. Others, like the grub worm, take up residence at the roots. There, they disrupt and destroy the nutritional support system of your greenery. If bugs are present, they should be treated immediately. If you wait too long, the bug population will multiply, and your lawn will look even worse.
Being proactive when lawn problems appear and focusing on prevention when the problems are resolved goes a long way toward keeping pesky insect troublemakers from hijacking your property. When you sign up for a professional lawn care service plan, you'll be rid of these invaders before they can dig in and destroy your lawn.
A healthy, green and well-groomed lawn can make you feel good whenever you see it. It can also add an enormous amount of curb appeal to your property. Unfortunately, lawns do not take care of themselves. Rather, they trust us to do the job for them.
It's not easy to care for a lawn unless you are a lawn care professional and know exactly what you're doing. There's a lot more to maintaining a lawn than simply mowing the grass. Bugs, disease and weeds can all multiply quickly, undermining even your best efforts. Lawns require just the right balance of nutrients and fertilizers for healthy growth. The vitality of a lawn also depends on balanced treatments for weed control, insect control and disease control.
Investing in professional lawn spraying and lawn pest control is the easiest way to keep your grounds looking beautifully green all year long. There are many ways to discourage pests and invasive weeds from taking over your property. A professional lawn care specialist can assess the condition of your grass, shrubs and plants. He or she can then develop a lawn care plan to treat existing problems and keep new ones from occurring.

“What, exactly, is meant by the phrase by the Green Industries? Simply put, only you, the people working every day, mowing, pruning, planting, weeding, fertilizing, watering, taking care of pest problems, and teaching your customers how to properly care for their lawn, can make a difference in the effects our landscapes have on our natural resources. Governments can regulate and educators can teach, but only the individual working in the yard can actually make a difference.”Florida Department of Environmental Protection
