Lawn Insect and Pest Management

Proper lawn insect and pest management will prevent bugs like ants and centipedes from invading your home

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

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.

North Eastern Tree Care offers lawn insect and pest management programs to keep your landscape beautiful.
