Get Rid of Moles
If you see raised ridges or mounds of loose, excavated earth on your lawn, they could be due to moles making tunnels underneath. Moles do not feed on turf but they can make your lawn unsightly because of the mole hills that they create. They can destroy newly seeded lawns and undermine the root system of grass, which may affect their growth. If you don't immediately get rid of moles, the lawn may not be suitable anymore for outdoor activities since the area will become difficult to mow or walk on.
Eliminating moles in your lawn should always be handled by professionals. At Pleasant Landscapes, we first assess the extent of infestation before using appropriate lawn pest control strategies. One of the common techniques in getting rid of moles is eliminating their food source, particularly worms and grubs. Other options that we can use include deterrents, poisons, and traps.
Mole Cricket Control
Mole cricket is a common problem for property owners because it thrives well in our state. Mole cricket control is necessary because the pest eats the roots of most turf varieties such as Bermuda, Bahi, St Augustine, Zoysia, and Centipede grass. Our usual recommendation to prevent this type of lawn problem is to treat the area early in spring or summer.
Do you have brown patches in your lawn that seem to be affected by drought? It is most probably infested by chinch bugs. They release a toxin that causes yellowish to brownish patches in your lawn. These sucking insects primarily target St. Augustine and Zoysia grass varieties. We employ both non chemical and chemical control methods to effectively eliminate this type of infestation.
Anthills in your lawn can be a real problem. Aside from being an eyesore, they can also ruin your outdoor living experience. But don't worry because we can apply ant killer solutions to completely eliminate ant nests. We can spot treat areas with the right type of insecticide or use granules to ensure maximum control especially for fire ant colonies.
Most lawn pests can be controlled by applying insecticides. However, the effectiveness of the insecticide will depend on various factors such as the time it was applied, the correct amount and type of pesticide, and the methods used.
At Pleasant Landscapes, we use appropriate chemical solutions for every lawn pest control job. Although acephate and bifenthrin are common insecticides used for pest infestations, we can also use natural or organic materials to counter these attacks. We always consider our clients’ safety and the possible effects of commercially produced pesticides on the environment.
