Signs you have lawn insects
There are many different signs that insects have invaded your lawn. However, as there are quite a variety let us look at the general signs rather than specific insects.
Brown spots or patches – 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.
Leaf damage - 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. We suggest having a look at the bite marks on the leaves or vegetables to try to spot the culprits. If all that is left are signs of damage, we can help determine what kind of nuisance is the cause and what lawn pest control strategy will work best.
