They can fall a transition season, because we are moving from warm summer to the cold of winter. As the weather continues to change, you will see fewer instances of weeds and insects on your Utah lawn. Vigilance is still required, however, to make sure your lawn is healthy next year.
Most insects are now in the dormant stage of their life cycle. This means that if you missed the signs of their presence now, they will be back to reproduce and torment your lawn next year. A visual inspection of your lawn in October can help make sure you get your lawn off to a great start in the spring.
Go over your lawn and look for brown patches and strips of your lawn that comes up easily. These are signs that insects have been feeding on your grass and its roots. You will need to make sure that your lawn is treated with insecticide to kill any insects that are left.
It is most effective to treat your Utah lawn with a targeted insecticide created for the infestation you have. Turf Plus can determine what types of insects your lawn has and the best treatment. If you prefer, we can treat your lawn for you and help with any other winterization procedures you have left this year. Contact us today to find out how we can help you.
