The picture on the right: Did this home owner just forget to water in the hot summer months, leaving the grass to die? The answer is no, as a matter of fact, this homeowner thought just that and continued to water each day. What the homeowner did not know was that they were creating the perfect breeding environment for the chinch bugs which had already feasted upon their lush green lawn. What appeared to be a minor drought problem, escalated into hundreds of dollars of damage
Although there are literally thousands of insects and pests that feast on the luscious vegetation of our lawns and shrubs, not all insects are detrimental to our landscapes. Some species of insects are actually considered "Beneficial Insects" because they use the harmful insects as a source of food. Ladybugs, Lacewings, and the Assassin Bug are all considered beneficial because they help destroy harmful insects. With all points considered in Insect and Disease Management, the best solution for the control of devastating and dangerous insects is PREVENTION.
