Common Lawn Pests Found In Lady Lake

Lady Lake is flush with beautiful landscapes and beautiful lawns, but there are always dangers waiting in the shadows. Know how to spot and prevent these common diseases and pests before they become a huge problem.

Mole Crickets
Mole crickets are not as deadly as they look. They are shy creatures that dwell in the thatch layers of your lawn, digging underground for insects. Although their nymphs feed on your grass, they are not usually a problem unless there is an infestation. Mole crickets are not hard to identify when you see one you will never forget. They use their huge front claws to tunnel through your lawn, looking for food. This digging can disturb the roots of plants and grass, causing them to dry out and die. A great way to prevent mole crickets is to get your yard aerated by ADVANTAGE GREEN.

Chinch Bugs
Chinch bug activity is often confused for other lawn diseases, but upon a closer look, you’ll see that these tiny insects are the actual culprit. Chinch bugs prefer the tasty blades of St. Augustine over all others. They live in the thatch of your grass where they use their piercing mouth-parts to drain the water and nutrients out of your grass. Too much chinch bug activity can cause yellow or brown circles to appear in your yard and grow bigger each day. As with mole crickets, aeration is a great way to deter these insects from choosing your lawn.

Fire Ants
If you ever want to host a graduation, wedding, or party in your backyard, then you better be sure you don’t have a fire ant problem. Fire ants are extremely aggressive and territorial. A single queen colony can be as big as one acre and house more than a million ants who will all attack if they are disturbed. Fire ants are tough and resilient creatures who don’t respond well to traditional ant control methods. They are so resilient that after hurricanes and floods, entire colonies have been spotted clinging together to create a floating island of ants, stinging anything unfortunate enough to drift in their path.

Lawn Diseases Found In Lady Lake

Grey Leaf Spot
Grey leaf spot is one of several lawn diseases that prefers the wet, humid climate of Florida. You can identify grey leaf spot by the tan oval-shaped spots on your grass. As the disease spreads, it can weaken and kill your grass, leaving your lawn fair game for weeds and diseases. Grey leaf is preventable by following proper irrigation techniques and making sure your grass does not remain wet for too long.

Brown Patch
Brown patch is another turf killing fungus we have in Florida. It usually starts as the name suggests, a brown patch in your grass. The brown color is caused by the disease choking your grass and killing it. It is caused by long periods of wetness from rain, too much shade, or inadequate drainage. Keeping your lawn dry can prevent brown patch.

Rust Fungus
Rust prefers grass in shaded areas that remain wet with water from rain, dew, humidity, or irrigation. It appears as a yellowish-orange powder from the bursting of spores. As the spores spread the disease to other parts of your lawn, it decreases the growth of your grass considerably. This leaves your yard weak and vulnerable to pests and diseases. Be vigilant from early spring to fall when temperatures are between 60-85 degrees.

Dollar Spot

Another common Florida lawn disease is dollar spot. It first appears as a small round discolored area about the size of a silver dollar coin. As it spreads, multiple dollar spots can merge together, growing into larger spots. Dollar spot is most active when humidity is high, and temperatures are above 70 degrees.
