Lawn Pest Control

To control lawn pests, first properly identify the target pest; then select the proper insecticide. Insecticides are listed by active ingredient rather than by brand name because many different brand names contain the same active ingredient. Also, brand names can be confusing, and buying insecticides based solely on brand name and what pest is pictured on the label can often lead to disappointing control. Never purchase an insecticide without first considering the active ingredient and reading the label to determine if the product is labeled and appropriate for the intended use. Time spent reading and studying pesticide labels before making the purchase is time well spent.

Controlling lawn pests depends on getting the insecticide to the target pests. Be sure to consider this when planning an insecticide treatment, and be sure you have the necessary equipment to properly apply the product you are buying. For pests such as white grubs and mole crickets, it is usually necessary to “water in” the insecticide after application. On the other hand, it is important to avoid watering and rainfall for a day or two when treating pests like fall armyworms, that feed on grass blades above the soil. Be sure to read the pesticide label and follow the application directions carefully to ensure the desired result, safe effective pest control.
