As we’re getting closer to summer, let’s not forget the challenging season we just navigated through. Spring was uncertain, to say the least and spending time outdoors was tough. While it’s nice to see things slowly reopen and people out enjoying the fresh air and sunshine, we all know how wonderful it is to come home and relax in the comfort and safety of our own homes.
As I’ve stated before, we feel very fortunate that our industry is deemed essential. We will continue servicing our clients in the safest way possible as we move forward into another uncertain season. We are extremely proud that we provide a service that transforms your property into an inviting and safe haven for you and your loved ones to enjoy while making priceless memories.
CHINCH BUGS are harmless to people but pose a serious threat to your healthy lawn. One adult female lays eggs every day for about three weeks. The eggs take a bit more than one week to hatch yielding approximately 250 offspring for each female. Both mature adults and growing nymphs feed on grass by biting it and sucking out the sap which kills the blade. Chinch bugs leave behind yellowish, irregular, dead spots in your lawn as they move on to healthier areas. Their cycle continues until fall when this years brood hibernates to become next year’s adults. How to prevent chinch bugs
INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT
Our work occasionally requires pesticides, the use of which is carefully and responsibly monitored. Integrated Pest Management (IPM), the foundation of YardApes’ Lawn Care Program, nurtures healthy soil and uses pest control only if necessary and only on targeted areas of your property.
Corrective rather than preventative, YardApes’ IPM starts with a complete soil analysis identifying any nutrient deficiencies or pH problems. We can also help with insect, rodent, or deer issues. We keep informed of all current advances and have the best people and equipment to implement lawn care strategies to cultivate healthy outdoor spaces.
Above all else, our aim is to improve and never to harm the environment we work tirelessly to maintain. Protect your lawn from pests
