Insect Control

In the Fox Cities area, STORM – The Lawn Pro is able to help homeowners with all their insect control and insecticide applications. All healthy lawns have a good, healthy number of insects, but homeowners can throw off a well-balanced ecosystem if they neglect their lawns especially with hot dry weather and poor topsoil. When insects reach infestation levels in your lawn, you must step in, but what can you do to control an overpopulation, of ants, grub worms (shown above), cinch bugs, sod web worm moths, spiders, aphids, mosquitoes, flies, bumblebees, etc. which make themselves to home in your lawn, before it happens?

Preventative Insect Control

Insect pests thrive on healthy and unhealthy short cut lawns leaving dead lawns in their place. Mow your lawn high during July and August. Because many insects are hearty enough to do well in hot and sandy soil, they enjoy the thin, short-cut grass which allows this type of lawn to become an insect resort!  Water your lawn for two hours before going to work in the morning (not after supper).  Do this every seven days in July and August. Remember to mow your lawn at the highest setting.  This will reduce insect pests and prevent infestation. Your insect resort is closed!

If you follow proper practices for watering, mowing, and fertilizing, in two years you will probably never need insect control again. Your lawn will not only look healthy; It will be healthy, thick and green.  Proper watering, mowing, and fertilizing are the best preventative methods of weed control and insect control.

Grubs Skunk Damage

Reactive Insect Control

It doesn’t take long for skunks, possums, and raccoons to discover there is an overpopulation of grubs in your lawn, and these animals can rip up and destroy a large section of lawn in one night, feeding on grubs. Ants, sod webworms, and cinch bugs can also create large patches of dead grass. Many insects that overpopulate in lawns will hatch right around the 4th of July in the Fox Cities and Appleton area. This is the time for an insecticide application if you need one.

STORM – The Lawn Pro stands ready to care for your lawn by getting rid of your insect problems. We can apply an insecticide to your lawn that will bring population levels down to normal, healthy numbers again, which will prevent further damage to your lawn.
