Managing Lawn Pests

Underground pests - Japanese Beetle

Insect problems, like diseases, develop when conditions are favorable to them.  As the weather warms up in spring, insect populations and activity increase.  Your best line of defense against these pests is to provide optimal growing conditions for your lawn.  A thick, healthy turf is not attractive to pests as either habitat or food, and is better able to survive any foraging of insects.
