Surface Insect Control

Weed Man Lawn Care Boise's Insect Control Service

insect controlInsect infestations can cause considerable damage to your lawn very quickly as the insects multiply rapidly during their short life spans. Lawns that are already thin, dry, or infested with weeds are especially susceptible to surface insect activity and damage. Fortunately, Weed Man’s certified technicians are trained to diagnose insect damage specific to your region and lawn conditions. Using Integrated Pest Management (IPM), an ecosystem-based strategy that targets long-term prevention of pests and pest-related damage, we build a custom surface insect control program for you.

 

 

DIAGNOSING & TREATING A SURFACE INSECT PROBLEMsod webworm

Under normal conditions, there is a natural balance between insects, predators, and the food supply in your lawn. However, abrupt changes in weather conditions can upset that balance and result in an increased insect population. Turf insects, such as Chinch Bugs,Sod Webworms, and Cutworms, can cause quick, extensive, and sometimes devastating damage to your lawn. 

 

The correct diagnosis of a surface insect problem is essential. That’s where we come in. As soon as you observe signs of insect damage or a high population of insects in your lawn, contact your local Weed Man for an analysis. Some insects can only be controlled at certain points in their life cycle, so we’ll be using our expertise to determine:

  1. The insect responsible for the damage

  2. The life cycle of that insect

  3. The level of the infestationcutworm

From there, guided by our Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach, we’ll build a customized treatment program for you. We use a combination of techniques in a manner that minimizes risks to human health, beneficial and nontarget organisms (like pollinators), and the environment. Weed Man only uses federally approved products that have gone through rigorous testing and risk assessment, safely applied in the capable hands of a trained and certified Weed Man technician.
