Springfield Pests and Lawn Disease Treatment
Insects and plant diseases can create problems in grass despite good growing conditions and care. Many bacterial and fungal diseases cause discoloration in the grass. An area in the yard may turn yellow, brown or black. Infection may remain as a small, discolored spot or expand into a large, irregularly shaped dead area.
Our approach to managing pests and diseases begins with maintaining plant health including pruning and creating optimal soil conditions for plant growth. Periodic inspections are essential to detect pest infestations before they reach concerning levels.
