Naples pest control for whitefly, webworm, grubs, and chinch bugs from goodwin lawn care

It is Summer and the bugs are out. Controlling these pests can be easy or could be your worst nightmare. Whats worked best for me is bimonthly lawn spraying and switching the chemicals on every visit. I get calls from customers who are not on a spray schedule and are loaded with pests and expect to have everything cured on the first spray, that does not work most of the time. Cinch bugs lay there eggs in the ground and the insecticide will usually not kill the eggs so when the insecticide wears off the new hatch-lings will start destroying your turf. So I will usually do a back up spray 4 weeks after when I come for the first time on a lawn. The White fly are everywhere. Now there are different species going after Palms, Trees of different varieties, and Ficus hedges. The best thing to do is to catch them early so the damage is not done. The signs to look for are discoloring of the plant, the plant starts to defoliate , or plant stops growing. I always put a contact killer and a systemic insecticide to get rid of the pest.

Lawn Aeration

Aeration should be part of everyone’s lawn program

On scale of 1 to 10, core aeration rates an 11 for improving your turf quality. Lawns can be aerated anytime throughout the growing season. Spring, Summer and Fall all offer their own unique advantages. The benefits of aeration are so clear that it’s a standard practice used on all golf courses across the country. The benefits begin immediately and last for months.

What is aeration?

aeration naples

 

Aeration is the process of making thousands of small holes in the turf. These holes allow air, water and fertilizer to reach the root zone more efficiently resulting in new growth and increased root development.

Save up to 25% on your water bill

Water is able to get down to the root zone more efficiently where it is absorbed and not lost to evaporation in the thatch layer.

Reduces thatch

 

Aeration speeds thatch breakdown by mixing the soil from the cores that are pulled to mix with the thatch.

Creates Deeper, healthier roots

Aeration creates thousands of small growth pockets which attract the grass roots.

Loosens hard, compacted soils

Aeration decompresses your soil by allowing room for the soil to expand while, at the same time, creating a looser structure for the roots.

There are many Pests in Naples that you have to worry about to keep your lawn, shrub and trees healthy.  Above are a couple of invading pests that are a big problem in Naples, Fl.  These are Chinch bugs.

 

 

  They will go after you grass that is most stressed out.  They are most avtive in the summer time.  To control them I like to use Bifenthren.  That chemical will usually get rid of them. Here is what your grass will look like if you have chinch bug damage.

Diseses in turf is one of the hardest things to identify in pest management.

You have to know the difference between dryness in your grass, to herbicide burns, to pests in grass, to disease.

The best way to identify disease on  your grass in to actually take a blade of grass and check for disease.

Lawn Care in Naples – Lawn Care Naples

Lawn Care in Naples

My name is Tyler Goodwin and  I have been in the Law Care Business for a long time now.

In order to have a successful business in lawn  care you have to be very knowledgeable, friendly, have a passion for lawn care.

There is so much to know in the  business that it could take years to master everything.  You have to know irrigation, pest control, proper pruning and mowing techniques,  landscape design, and know the names of a bunch of species of shrubs and trees.

I do learn something new everyday in the business. 

 

Yesterday I had to treat a ficus hedge for white fly.  I was about two hundred feet of hedge. I took about 200 gallons of water mixed with chemical to treat it.  It usually takes about three to four weeks for the application to kick in.  Now a days you are going to have to treat  ficus hedges on a yearly basis to prevent losing your hedge.

                             Ficus White Fly

This is what a ficus hedge will look like if it get infested with the white fly.

 

I am having problems now with disease in my floratam yards.  They are getting brown spot and it will kill little areas in the grass.

This is a close up of what it looks like if you have it.  In order to treat it you have to put a fungicide on it.  And it will usually heal it.
