Insects & Diseases

Insects and diseases can destroy your lawn’s greenery very quickly if left untreated. In order to protect your landscaping investment from these deadly diseases, it is important that you diagnose and treat these infections at an early stage before they damage the health of your trees and shrubs. To help you treat all these diseases and restore the health and lush appearance of your lawn, Chandler’s Turf Pro provides insect control and disease treatment services to its clients.

Insect Control Services

Insects are an important component of our ecosystem, but some of them are rather dangerous to the health of your plants. Therefore, it is important that keep an eye of the presence of these insects and call Chandler’s Turf Pro at their first sight.

Some of the lawn insects that may destroy your landscape include:

Lace Bugs

If your shrubs and trees have developed a yellow spotty appearance, particularly in the summer, this could be a sign of lace bugs breeding. Just like aphids, lace bugs suck the fluids from your shrubs and trees, causing them to suffer from water and nutrients deficiency.

Beetles

While beetles usually feed on dried plants and trees, they may also attack the leaves, seeds, and even fruits in your garden, affecting both its appearance and production.

Aphids

Distorted and discolored leaves and stems are indicative of the aphids’ presence. These small insects are found in large groups on plants and therefore, can be easily detected through the naked eye. They suck sap from the leaves and stems of your shrubs and trees, causing them to look old and discolored.

Mites

Belonging to the family of spiders and ticks, mites can infest your garden and make the leaves look wilted. They may also cause thinning of shrubs and trees and make your lawn look old and worn out.

In addition to the species mentioned here, there are a number of other varieties that may infest your garden and damage it. To learn more, it is best to contact the experts. Call at 662-895-4110.

Disease Treatment Services

Just like humans, plants may also get sick due to infections caused by various insects and illnesses that spread through water, air, or soil. What’s encouraging to know is that the signs and symptoms of these diseases are very apparent on trees and shrubs, making it easier for you to determine when to call a lawn care expert to provide treatment to the sick plants.

Chandler’s Turf Pro has the resources and expertise required to treat a number of lawn diseases, including:

Black Spots

Black spots on leaves and other parts of a plant are the sign of a fungal infection. These are most likely to occur during the spring and lead to creation of an ugly black spotty appearance.

Powdery Mildew

This is one of the most common lawn diseases caused by fungi. It leads to the production of white powdery substance on the leaves and can easily spread from one plant to another through bugs and insects.

Rust

Rust has nothing to do with an artistic rustic appearance. Instead, it’s a fungal infection that affects leaves, fruits, stems, and other plant parts and leads to their discoloration. In the long-run, it may also lead to stunting and prevent your plants from growing into a healthy mature tree.

Leaf Spots

Leaf spot is probably the ugliest of all lawn diseases. In its initial stages, it causes leaf coloration and, with time, the infected parts start to dry up and fall out leading to creation of small holes in the leaf.

Without proper upkeep and maintenance, your lawn may get infected with any of these diseases. The best way to prevent them is to hire the services of a professional lawn care company that can take care of your plants and shrubs and ensure their optimal health.
