A healthy, well-tended lawn can experience a variety of problems caused by insects and grub worms. Their presences can attract burrowing critters like moles and voles which can cause severe damage to your lawn.
Routine inspection from a North Eastern Tree Care lawn care professional can identify and provide the appropriate treatments to prevent a problem from developing and correct an existing infestation.
Typically Grubs and Chinch bugs cause the most damage to lawns.
Lawn grubs are the larval form of Japanese, June and a few other beetles. Which beetle grub your lawn is most likely to be infested with depends on where you live. Grubs are a big problem in the Northeast, where irrigated turf provides a grub oasis. Grubs make their presence known by creating patches of dying lawn as they devour grass roots. Sometimes you’ll also notice places where the lawn has been burrowed as hungry skunks dig for grubs.
Chinch bugs tend to attack lawns in sunny areas, sucking the juices from individual grass plants and injecting toxins that loosen grass from soil. These insects are tiny, only 1/20 of an inch, and have black bodies with shiny white wings. Chinch bugs tend to dwell in the thatch layer or in the crowns of individual grass plants.
Chris came by yesterday and toured the property. I am extremely impressed by his vast knowledge of all things trees! He is definitely a credit to the professionalism of your company.
“Service is Par none! We have used several tree care companies over the years and this one is the first one that does what they say they will do, when they say they will do it. They come on time, they techs and arborists are knowledgeable about the service as well as about my property and the reps are respectful and polite. We had an issue with a tree in our front yard recently and their arborist was very helpful in determining that the tree did not need to be removed. With treatment, it is budding nicely and we couldn’t be happier. They also have an A rating and are accredited by the BBB, which speaks for itself. Beware of other companies offering lower prices, you won’t get the same service or experience.
I was very impressed with the response time to my inquiry. I got a call back within hours. My estimate was done within 2 business days, and the work was completed the day after I agreed to the service. I did not quote out the job to other contractors as my birch tree needed urgent treatment, but the price seemed reasonable so I am giving 5 stars. I was impressed that the arborist sent to quote the job knew in advance of the concerns I had expressed to the owner about the use of chemicals due to my dogs health, and planned my treatment accordingly. I was very pleased and would definitely recommend them and use them again myself
“The person arrived when promised and gave me a complete evaluation
of the trees on my property. He found one small tree that needed spraying and did so –
no charge. He then told me what I should do to bring back the tree to good health.
I would call them again without hesitation.”
