Pest Control

Rules For Effective Garden Pest Control

Garden pest control is perhaps one of the biggest obstacles for the home owner. Besides weeds and insects, diseases must be managed. Diseases caused by bacteria can leave a lawn in a terrible state. Weeds come up at the most awkward places and insect pests cause severe plant havoc.

Accurate Identification Of The Problem

Part of pest control is the identification of the cause of damage. Experts from LawnSafe can help. Visible inspection of the plants is done and nutrition level of the soil tested. Damage done by poor plant nutrition can look the same as damage caused by pests. As such the problem must first be identified before chemicals are used.

Visible damage caused by insects includes that of chewed leaves, and in the case of grass, dead patches in the lawn. Curled leaves and leaves with little deformities are also an indication of pests being present. Plant diseases are not that easy to identify and once again, the pest control experts from LawnSafe will be able to assist. Toxin build-up and bacteria are two common causes of disease. Some indications of disease are dead patches in the lawn, greyish plant appearances, dead plants, growths on plants, and plants which simply don’t want to grow.

Air pollution, sudden temperature changes, drainage problems, inadequate nutrition, and some pesticides can create the same damage as diseases. Knowing the difference is paramount in successful lawn and garden care. Our team has the experience, technical know-how, and tools to identify problems, the causes and the required treatment.
