Not in Love with your Lawn?
As the weather starts to turn warmer pests, begin to creep out of the woodwork. With their winter hibernation behind them, they can find their way to your yard, your trees, flowers and bushes or, what’s worse, your home.
In warm, sunny South Florida, it’s not uncommon for bugs to infest your yard. They move in once the weather warms up, and can destroy your beautiful lawn, prevent flowers from blooming or even destroy your trees from the inside out.
Here are just a few pests and insects you should look out for as a Florida homeowner:
- Whitefly, damage both palm trees and hedges. They cause them to drop leaves and create a sticky residue that can leave marks on your patio, pool and car.
- Webworms, which live in soil and sod, eating grass from the bottom up.
Mole crickets, which tunnel through the soil, just below the surface, uprooting your grass and destroying your lawn in their wake.
- Palm Leaf Scales, headless, legless bugs that attack palm trees.
- Chinch bugs, which feed on plant juices, pierce blades of grass and damage turf.
- Aphids, that feed on ornamental plants, like shrubs and palms.
Thanks to the humidity and lack of a severe cold season, there are hundreds of other pests that can thrive in your yard or your home. Before the weather gets too warm, it’s important to take steps to prevent an infestation before it’s too late.
