Spring is the season of greening lawns, beautiful blooms, and, of course, a wide variety of insects and other types of critters that are drawn to your Rochester, MN plants. While it’s always a treat to see bees and butterflies, there are some insects that do more harm than good. At Maier Tree and Lawn, along with our professional lawn care, we provide pest control that helps manage unwanted insects while carefully preserving the health and wellness of your lawn.

Pest Control for Pest Problems

It can be difficult to identify every common garden pest at a glance, but during your regular lawn care routines, it’s important to keep an eye out for certain signs of incoming or ongoing pest issues. For instance, the occasional creepy-crawly is understandable, but a swarm or overwhelming collection of any single insect may be a sign of an infestation.

Frequent or significant amounts of nests and webbing are a common sign that you may have a pest problem on your hands. In some cases, however, the signs may be a bit subtler and require a trained, professional eye.

Symptoms that Call for Pest Control

 If your plants have been chewed to bits, are playing host to many grubs, eggs, or larvae, or are wilting and browning, it’s obviously time for a check-up. However, even if your pest problem doesn’t seem dire, any pest trends at all are worth an evaluation. Professional pest control doesn’t have to be a last resort; in fact, a comprehensive lawn care system often benefits from some form of regular pest control.

Pesticides come in a variety of different strengths, formulas, and uses. Creating a balanced pest control plan for your lawn doesn’t have to be a “scorched earth” scenario. Lawn care professionals can work with you to create a plan that will keep your plants pest-free while supporting a healthy, diverse biome on your property.
