Pests & Weeds

As with any crop, turfgrass problems can come from weeds, insects and various diseases. Research has shown that properly maintained turf is better at warding off certain weeds and diseases and can even tolerate higher numbers of insects. Limited use of pesticides and proper management practices prevents or reduces pests and promotes healthy, dense turf.

TURF PESTS Most pests are easier to manage when they’re immature and fewer in number, so sod producers must vigilantly monitor pest activity to catch infestations as early as possible. Some pests to watch for include white grubs, mole crickets, ants, army worms, cutworms, sod webworms, chinch bugs and Bermuda grass mites. Besides insects, small animals can also live in or on turf and cause damage. If you notice dead areas in your turf or areas that have stunted or distorted growth or browning or yellowing leaves, check for the presence of pests.
