Lawn pests. The unwelcome summer guests that can crash your planned parties.

Let us at VIRIDIS Lawn Care of Saragtoga Springs help you protect your lawn from this devastation. We can prevent or cure infestations of common pests so that your time, money, and effort isn’t wasted.
With such a variety of pests that can damage your landscape, determining which is your nemesis can require a professional. Some pests feed on leaves and blades while others feed on roots. Some cause damage without eating but through tunneling or creating homes. Knowing the insect that is causing devastation is key to properly treating. Some pests need to be killed during specific phases of their development. Applying treatment during other phases could be completely ineffective.
There are some precautions you can take to reduce the appeal of your lawn as a breeding ground for bugs. Doing these things will also prove helpful for treating infestations.
Watering and mowing habits are the most influential of your normal tasks in preventing and removing pests. Mow grass 3 inches high and don’t allow it to become overgrown. Water deeply and infrequently. Don’t allow your lawn to dry out. Besides creating a perfect habitat for pests, ignoring these suggestions will weaken your lawn’s health.
