Lawn Pests including Weeds, Fungal Disease and Insects – Lawn Green Lawn Care

grubsLawn Pests is the broad name given that covers all sorts of weeds, fungal diseases and insects that cause grief to lawn turf grasses.

Weeds in lawns (and gardens for that matter) include all plants that are considered undesirable to the lawn or garden area. Basically a weed is considered to be an unwanted plant (and nuisance) that finds its way in to any environment including lawns, gardens, landscape areas and agricultural environments including rivers and farming areas. Weeds are also found in natural park land and forest areas. These weeds may be plants that have found their way into these environments as an introduced species by colonial settlers. Success in eradicating weeds in lawns is varied depending on the type of turf grass. With the help of professional turf herbicides, you can eradicate all weeds in couch grass (Bermuda grass). Less success is achieved with most other turf grasses.

Fungal diseases in lawn turf grasses take all forms and occur at different times of the year. Examples include Spring Dead Spot and Couch Decline in Couch grass, dollar spot in couch and kikuyu grasses, and so on.

Lawn insect pests are categorized as follows. Lawn insects include scarab beetles, leaf eating caterpillars such as lawn army worm and sod web worm, weevil insects including Bill Bug, and couch mite. The damage caused by these different lawn insect pests is devastating and different in the way the host plant (the lawn) is attacked.

All lawn pests are the bane of lawn lovers. Fortunately, there are herbicidal, insecticidal and fungicidal products that help to alleviate the problem caused by all these lawn pests.
