Hot Spots for Insects
Your yard is an insect playground, offering dozens of places for insects to play hide and seek. Fallen leaves, a downspout extender, an upturned flower pot, Fido’s dish — they all serve as welcome mats for unwanted guests.
Learn to look at your yard like an insect and discover if your slice of paradise has pest appeal.
Dealing With Lawn Grubs
Lawn grubs, often called white grubs, are the immature form of different scarab beetles, such as Japanese beetles, June “bugs” (beetles) or the European chafers. These white, C-shaped creatures have soft bodies with legs near the head. They feed on grass roots (and organic matter in the soil), causing sections of grass in the lawn to die. Grubs eventually turn into adult beetles and emerge from soil to mate and lay eggs, which hatch into more grubs.
