A good pesticide can be a big help in maintaining a beautiful yard. Lawn pests love your grass and soil because it protects them from sun and wind. Grubs and worms like to feed on the roots which creates brown patches, while ants, chinch bugs, and other insects feast on the grass stems and blades. Pests can also pose a problem for your flowers, plants, shrubs, and trees. Consider using a general pesticide for all-season protection, and specific insecticides to target certain pests.
