This time of year you see brown patches on your lawn and your first thought is, “it’s the heat.” But if your lawn has been getting water, there’s a good chance it’s probably insects eating your lawn alive. Lawn moths flying from your grass when you mow is a sure sign of trouble just around the corner. These tan-colored moths are about a quarter to a half inch long and fly in a zig-zag pattern over the lawn, especially in the evening. The moths do not damage your grass, however they lay eggs for sod webworms and cutworms that will cause your lawn to thin and turn brown.
The good news is you can protect your lawn with Turf Builder SummerGuard. Just one application will take care of lawn-damaging insects as well as ticks and fleas. And, it gives your lawn a special summer feeding.
The insects won’t like it a bit, but your lawn will thank you all summer long.
