What Types of Insects Attack My Lawn?
Here in our area, there are many different types of pests that can ruin your grass. Here is a look at the types of insects you might be dealing with:
These bugs are native to the United States and infest turf grass. Larvae feed on the grass, leaves and stems larvae are active during the spring and fall months. You probably won’t know these are in your lawn until you see the damage.
During the day, they cover themselves with silk webbing. When you see ragged brown spots occurring in the fall, this could be a sign that you have an infestation. Also, the adult moths fly close to the ground. If you see these signs, you are in need of a lawn pest control service.
Primarily, these bugs attack St. Augustine grass. However, you can find them feeding on Bermuda grass, centipede grass, zoysia grass, and bahia grass.
These pest feed in packs and tend to damage your turf in localized areas. Turf damage is caused when the chinch bugs use their mouths to suck out the sap from the base of a plant.
Toxic substances are released due to the sucking, and prevents a plant from being able to transport water. This will cause yellow or dead heat spots on your lawn.
If you see these types of issues on with your grass, then you need to call Bug-Man for lawn pest control in Jacksonville.
Fall Army Worms
These pests prefer to eat grass, but have been known to feed on any type of vegetation. Damage is brought on during the feeding stage of the larvae.
They begin eating on side of the leaf and gradually move to eating holes through the leaves. The older the larvae, the more extensive the defoliation.
Since these insects are cannibalistic, you likely will see no more than 2 per plant. This causes them to spread out and do more damage. In this case, you are in need of lawn insect control.
