Pests and Diseases

Most lawns from time to time come under attack from pests. The area you live in and your surroundings can have a great effect on this. For example being surrounded by fields can mean that the adult form of pest is most likely to be in higher numbers and can easily travel onto the lawn than that of a city lawn. A couple of such pests are defined here.Most lawns from time to time come under attack from pests. The area you live in and your surroundings can have a great effect on this.

Chafer Grubs

Pests diseases - Greenway Lawn ServicesThese can completely destroy a lawn if left unchecked, and must not be ignored. If you see patches of grass seemingly dying off with birds and other animals feeding and digging in those areas it must be treated.Remedial work is often required once the chafers are gone. These are difficult to control often as most chemicals to treat these have been removed in 2016.

 

Leather Jackets

Pests diseases - Greenway Lawn ServicesThese are often confused with chafer grubs and are in fact the larva of the crane fly (daddy long legs).These will not do as much damage as the chafers and will make the lawn look sorry than destroy it. High bird activity and yellowing grass is often a giveaway sign. The adult crane fly can be seen late summer and also give a good indicator that they may be present. Again most chemicals used to treat these have been removed from the market in 2016, other than nematodes.
