Getting Rid of Lubber Grasshoppers with Effective Lawn Pest Control in Naples

Watch out! If you are still seeing these Lubber grasshoppers, they were not addressed in March when they hatched,

Lubber grasshoppers are large species of grasshoppers that are common in the South Eastern United States. They are defoliators, which means they consume the leaves of various plants. Notorious for damaging citrus, vegetable crops, and even landscape ornamentals, they will completely strip a plant of its foliage if left unchecked. 

Thinking of getting rid of these yourself? If you don’t have prior professional experience when dealing with these pests, you might actually do more harm than good to your landscape. Also, other less-reputable pest control companies often use cheap yet harmful chemicals that not only pose environmental and health risks to those who are accidentally exposed, but they also kill other beneficial insects as well. Our lawn protection solution offers environmental safety, are more effective, and applications are less often than cheaper, labor-intensive solutions out there.

Avoiding Nasty Chinch Bug Problems in Southwest Florida

This is a chinch bug spot at North Collier Hospital. Every time I’ve passed this area by for the past 6 months, this spot has grown and grown until there was no grass left.

Lawns damaged by chinch bugs are often confused with lawns damaged by drought. This is because of the way the chinch bug consumes a blade of grass. Their mouthpart injects a poison into the blade of grass, effectively killing it. They then suck out its juices, leaving your lawn looking like it had seen better days. As the grass dies, the chinch bugs move onto the healthier patches of grass and repeat the same process. What may begin as a small patch of dead grass will continually expand outwards if these pests aren’t stopped. 

This is the issue when you don’t employ a pest control and fertilization company to watch over your green spaces. The most trafficked area in the whole property was left to succumb to this pest. Now they have to rip it all out and re-sod it, for no reason other than neglect. They could have identified this issue six to eight months ago when it started.

Don’t let this happen to your property. Here at Terra Garden Solutions, we have services that can effectively solve your chinch bug problem in the cleanest, most environmentally-friendly way possible. Other pest control companies would come in and spray your lawn a few times and only do it reactively. These only keep the bugs at bay and never disrupt their breeding cycle. Unlike these other companies, we are proactive in our approach. We identify the problem as early as possible before it gets out of hand.
