Sod Webworm Control in Macomb, Chesterfield, Shelby, MI & Nearby Areas
Protect your lawn from sod webworms that cause damage by feeding on your grass.
In our area of Michigan, several lawn insects can give property owners headaches and stress. However, sod webworms are particularly stubborn since they feed on your grass, causing unsightly lawn damage. Our team at Big Lakes Lawncare can help you solve sod webworm infestations on your property! These lawn insects are most active from late June to July, when they cause the most distress to your turf.
Sod webworms also leave your lawn with brown spots that get larger over time. We also offer lawn care services like our fertilization, weed control, aeration, and overseeding to nurse your lawn back to health from sod webworm damage. These services will strengthen your lawn so it can better tolerate insect infestations. Our pros gladly serve properties in Macomb, Chesterfield, Shelby, MI and nearby communities.
When do we treat sod webworm infestations?
Sod webworms are the larvae form of brown moths. Their life cycle is relatively quick, as adult moths lay eggs in late May to early June. These eggs hatch within seven to ten days and become the sod webworms that will damage your lawn from late June to early July. We can go to your property and treat sod webworms when they are actively feeding on your grass.
Our team aims to eliminate the first generation of sod webworms in early summer. This is because we also want to prevent the second generation of webworms from appearing around August so they don't cause more distress to your lawn.
Sod webworms hide underneath the soil, but our experts at Big Lakes Lawncare always perform a thorough job in treating them no matter where they are located!
Strengthen Your Sod After Webworm Damage With Our Lawn Care Services
We realize the severity of the damage caused by sod webworms. Because these lawn insects feed on your grass, you end up with brown patches on your lawn. Most property owners mistake these brown patches for grub damage or drought stress. When you hire us, we can correctly identify what is causing the damage to your turf.
If sod webworms are genuinely the cause of your unappealing, patchy lawn, we can nurse your turf back to health with these top-rated lawn care services:
- Fertilization: We will supply your lawn with the much-needed nutrients it needs to thrive. Our fertilizer treatments in summer also allow your grass to power through the summer heat.
- Weed control: While weed control will not directly reverse the effects of sod webworms on your lawn, we can help ensure that your lawn will not need to compete for vital resources against persistent weeds.
- Core aeration: Our core aeration service will loosen up the soil in your yard to give the roots of your grass better access to essential nutrients, water, air, and sunlight so that it can flourish.
- Overseeding: Overseeding rejuvenates your lawn by promoting new grass growth that is fuller and more robust. This service is best paired with our core aeration service to give the grass seeds a better chance to germinate.
