Pests that can cause damage to your lawn

Moles cause extraordinary damage to a landscape. They burrow underground in "runs" where they eat earthworms and other mole goodies. The runs create a circular mound and the classic lumpy mud trails at the surface. This is unsightly and damaging to any landscape. Pocket gophers are medium sized rodents. They tunnel under your landscape and pop up now and then to grab some vegetation and run back under cover. They will also feed on plant roots, causing damage in this way as well. Voles are rodents, smaller than gophers that use runs formed by other ground pests. They love to eat shrubs and even small trees in addition to your lawn or other vegetation you may have. Techniques to control underground pests vary from using different forms of poison to setting traps. These techniques involve many subtleties and require adherence to regulations so are often best left to a professional pest control service.

Giant water bugs, numerous types of caterpillars, leaf spot and fruit rot are just a few of the insect pests and diseases that will damage your landscape. All of these problems have to be identified and then a best management practice approach taken.
