Weed Man Lawn Care Insect Control


Did you know? Despite their short life span, insects on the lawn can multiply...rapidly! Normally, nature creates a balance between insects, natural predators and food supply. But if something - like a change in the weather pattern, for instance - happens to change that balance, then insect populations increase and could cause extensive damage to your turf. Insect damage will be particularly severe in thin, dry, or weed-infested lawns.

An Essential Step: Diagnosis

Weed Man Lawn Care's Surface Insect Control should begin once the early signs of injury are observed, or when significant numbers of insects are found on the lawn. Since some insects can only be controlled at certain times during their life cycles, it is essential to know...

 

Weed Man Identifying Insects on Lawn

 

...that's where we come in!

 

If insect damage is left unchecked, turf insects such as Chinch Bugs, Sod Webworms and Cutworms can cause considerable damage to your lawn. Weed Man's Surface Insect Control begins with the identification of the insect causing damage to the lawn. Because some insects can only be controlled at certain times during their life cycles, our lawn care technicians are trained to identify the insect responsible for the damage, the specific life cycle of that insect and the exact level of infestation.


Weed Man employees are carefully trained to diagnose insect damage in your region. This knowledge is parlayed into a customized program that is applied only when and where needed by licensed, trained professionals, as part of Weed Man’s IPM (integrated pest management)-based approach.

Applications may be necessary when damage history is apparent and/or threshold infestations have threatened the overall health of the lawn. After watering in the treatment, people and pets may play on the lawn after 24 hours or when dry.

 

YOUR FAMILy's Health & Safety: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Weed Man only uses federally registered products for use on home lawns. They are most safely applied in the capable hands of a trained professional, like your Weed Man technician.

All pesticides must be registered before they can be imported, sold or used in the North America. Registering a pesticide means that these products are properly tested to ensure they will not cause harm to human health or the environment when used according to the label instructions. Conditions are also placed on how pesticides can be used safely and effectively and will include instructions on the product labels to which Weed Man must follow. This is monitored and enforced by Federal, as well as State/Provincial authorities, to help ensure that pesticides are being used properly.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Yes, Weed Man professionals follow the preventive IPM approach. It is contemporary, responsible and ensures a healthy lawn and environment. Weed Man professionals have been using this approach for many years.

You need to respect anything applied to your lawn. Obviously, you want to be aware of when an application is made to your lawn, and that's one reason why we post signs in your yard when we apply. You should then wait at least until the application dries before going on the grass or letting the pets out, and that can be 15 minutes or 24 hours. Be sure to ask your local Weed Man for the drying times of specific products. It's important that you know that these products have all been carefully screened and are regulated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. On top of that, we as lawn care professionals have a broad range of products to choose from, and at Weed Man we focus on selecting the ones that are most friendly to our applicators.

Many people fear things that they know very little about. In fact, people naturally have a tendency to fear anything that is man-made, especially chemicals. However, many people do not recognize that there are things that occur in nature, including natural chemicals, that can be just as toxic as or even more harmful than man-made substances. It is important to recognize that it is the dose that makes the poison. All substances can be toxic (including water) depending on the dose.
