Bugs That Attack Your Garden and Lawn

The Chinch Bug

Your lawn may appear to be yellowing, signaling that it is beginning to die. This particular  bug will suck the nutrients right out of the soil under your grass and leave behind harmful chemicals that will never allow your lawn to recover. 

To fix this damage, normally, the only option is to reseed your lawn and replenish the nutrients it needs to regrow and be sustainable. 

The Cicada

When this damaging pest lays eggs in loose small branches in your trees — this will cause them to fall from your trees and land in your yard. After, the eggs will then hatch and go underneath your lawn, into the roots and soil, causing damage that can last for years.

This whole unpleasant and damaging process can be avoided by stopping the issue before the hatching of the eggs. Keeping up your yard by cleaning up the loose twigs and branches regularly can be your number one preventative measure to stop the cicada in its tracks.
