Insects and small animals are a natural part of any lawn or garden ecosystem. Typically the various insects populating your grass aren’t a cause for worry. While there are insects that feed on turf grass, they usually don’t do so in great enough numbers to cause problems. There are also many insects and bugs that greatly benefit your lawn, helping with the decomposition of organic matter so that the grass can get the nutrients it needs.
However, there are certain bugs and insects that can become a problem for your lawn if their numbers are too high.
When dealing with pest control, it is important to remember that there are many pest control products out there that are not safe, or that can cause harm to the environment. If not applied correctly, commercial pest control products can damage the plants and trees around your home, and can negatively affect any pets that you may have outside. And pests often spread quickly in residential areas, traveling effortlessly from one yard to the next. That’s why you need a professional to keep your turf healthy and safe.

Fire Ant Control
Fire ants are not a native species to North America, but since their introduction from South America they are rapidly becoming a well-known pest in the southern states. Red fire ants are very aggressive and their stings are painful to both humans and animals. Not only are they a painful pest, but their colonies can be quite large, making unsightly mounds in lawns and gardens.
