Summer is over and a lot of homeowners will be heaving a sigh of relief, knowing that the season that brings on veritable bug invasions to their lawns has ended. Insects of all kinds are one of the biggest threats to lawns around the United States and it seems that they’re becoming more adaptable and more difficult to get rid of each summer. Their attacks on grass, bushes, trees, and flowers can become very damaging, if they manage to disrupt the natural development cycles of the living organisms on your lawn.
The best course of action, when dealing with an insect issue on your lawn, is to call in a professional lawn care company. Trying to get rid of the insects yourself can actually end up in more harm than good for the lawn.
The Internet nowadays abounds with tips, tricks, and tutorials for home-made remedies against bugs. They may, indeed, not be harmful for the lawn itself, but they are often ineffectual and pointlessly consume time and energy. On the other hand, however, many homeowners shy away from professional lawn care services, as they fear the effects that toxic chemicals may have on their pets, their families, and, in the long-run, on the lawn itself.
However, not all lawn maintenance professional services swear by the synthetic chemical approach. Turf Clips is all-natural and organic – and this also includes the way they handle bug removal. The company’s experts advise homeowners to get rid of insects as quickly as they suspect an infestation has occurred. Not only can bugs damage the lawn, but they also pose a real threat for humans, too. The presence of seemingly innocuous insects such as bugs can bring on a bee and/or mosquito invasion. Not only do these flying insects sting, but they are also susceptible for being disease carriers. Statistics for the United States have revealed that the number of mosquito-transmitted diseases is on the rise each year.
The simplest and most effective way to make sure there are no bugs on your lawn is to keep it properly mowed, trimmed, and edged. A healthy lawn is less likely to constitute a good environment for insects. By having your lawn properly mowed by professionals you will avoid the emergence of insect nests. The same applies for flower beds, bushes, shrubbery, and trees. A good ‘manicure’ for your lawn and garden goes a long way, when it comes to bugs and other pests.
