Having a lawn that is under attack by insects can mean a great deal of damage to that lawn. It can even kill your grass when the damage is extensive enough. Lawns and flower beds are susceptible to attack from a wide variety of insects. They are a perfect environment from bugs, so vigilance is needed to keep insects from causing damage like discoloration, dead plants and other problems that can make your yard look unsightly.

Pest control is an important part of yard maintenance that can be accomplished by both the killing of existing bugs and the prevention of future infestations. With professional insect control, the yard can be analyzed and infestations can be discovered. It's important to know the types of bugs that are causing damage in a yard and to use insect control agents that will kill those specific species. A professional will also be able to analyze damage to a yard and determine whether the damage has been caused by insects or some other problem such as nutritional issues.

Often, it's the summer months when the most damaging bugs are actively feeding in yards. This is one of the best times to treat a yard for insects. If you see areas of grass that have turned yellow or brown, this may be insect damage. The damaged areas can start out small and easy to dismiss, but those areas can grow and merge into larger sections of your lawn that dies from the damage. With at least 50 species of insects that can damage lawns and flower beds, professional treatment is needed to keep the yard healthy and free from pests.

Sometimes mowing and watering just isn't enough to keep your lawn as weed-free and green as you'd like it. And most people find there is a lot of guess-work involved in deciding how often and how much you should fertilize.

Keeping a lawn healthy can also protect it from pest damage. A lawn that is already stressed from a lack of nutrients or too little water is more susceptible to insect damaged. With treatment for insects and special care taken to ensure the health of your lawn, insect damage can be prevented.
