While it really is starting to feel like fall is finally here, most Georgians are still going to be experiencing very warm afternoons. So as you notice the leaves change colors and begin to fall off of their trees, it's important to pay attention to other changes that might be going on in your yard. Just because the mosquitoes aren't buzzing around as much this time of year does not mean your lawn is without pests, or the effects of their presence.
Not only can your lawn benefit from proactive and reactive pest control, but your plants will thank you as they prepare for what metro Atlanta meteorologists are predicting to be a "colder and wetter winter."
If you're having success with keeping pest presence minimized in your lawn or garden, then you know the best way you can spend your time is by keeping it that way with proactive or preventative maintenance.
One of the best ways to stay on top of controlling pests in your lawn or garden is by knowing what to look for and how to react.
Grubs are an extremely common lawn pest found here in Georgia, and they can be quite invasive and damaging to your lawn's root structure. This time of year is perfect to take action against unhatched grubs. Using insecticides can prevent a new round of grubs from taking vital nutrients from your lawn right before winter arrives.
We offer custom programs to control grubs, armyworms and other pests that will fit your specific needs, contact AgroPro today to learn more.
For small occurrences, try keeping your lawn leaf-free for the rest of the fall season to prevent pests from seeking shelter underneath them, for more tips of leaf management, check out our guide!
