Common Mississippi Lawn Pests & What To Do About Them

Common mississipi lawn pests

There's nothing quite as enjoyable as spending time in the great outdoors once the weather warms up, especially if that outdoor location is your own backyard. Whether you have an outdoor living space that's simplistic or one that's somewhat over-the-top, it's still enjoyable.

Enjoyable unless pests plague your yard. An essential part of proper lawn care is ensuring you have a plan to prevent or eradicate insects that damage your grass, annoy you and your guests, or a bit of both. Do yourself a favor and make sure that your lawn care program includes a professional plan for pest control so you can relax in your outdoor oasis.

What You Might Find Hiding In Your Grass

The problem with pests is that they're a real nuisance. From buzzing and biting to wreaking havoc on your well-manicured lawn, there's no reason to share your space with them! Before you discover your yard is overrun with one of our local problems, it's a good idea to familiarize yourself with some of the most common invaders:

  • Chinch Bugs - If you notice your grass is turning yellow or straw-like, chinch bugs are probably the culprit.
  • Fire Ants - Fire ant mounds are destructive to lawns and mowers, but it's their bite to humans and pets that's the bigger concern.
  • Fleas & Ticks - Fleas and ticks are annoying but can also cause health problems; they're awful in your yard but even worse once they migrate from the yard to inside your home.
  • Mole Crickets - A clear sign of mole crickets is the raised dirt trail you may notice from their underground tunnels, which means they're already destroying your otherwise healthy grass.
  • Mosquitoes - Mosquito bites are an itchy pain, but these pests can also carry and transmit serious diseases.
