Classifying the different insect and pest species found in Northern Indiana.
Many lawn insects will eat the leaves and roots of your grass. It could take weeks for your yard to recover from this kind of damage. We have a number of different pests and insects that are found in lawns throughout Northern Indiana. These are a few of the most common species we see and can treat for with pre and post-emergent treatments:
- White grubs- White grubs are the larvae of Japanese beetles and June bugs. They're normally eaten by birds and other small animals, but this only entices them to dig up and destroy your lawn even more. These little pests like to feed on the lawn roots beneath the soil and much of the dead grass left behind can be rolled up like sod. White grubs can survive through the winter and will start feeding in early spring. Some signs of an infestation are discolored and spongy sections of grass.
- Armyworms- These caterpillars have been known to destroy large crop fields, so eating at your lawn is a small feat for them. A large infestation can decimate your lawn in a matter of days. Armyworms are heavily active in the fall and eat the tops of grass blades, making it seem like your lawn was affected by extreme drought.
- Mole crickets- Mole crickets are one of the most devastating lawn pests you can find. This is because they have mole-like claws that are used to dig and tear at your lawn's root system. One way to tell mole crickets apart from other insects is the appearance of the tunnels and furrows they create on your lawn. As they make their way through the soil, they'll feast on decaying plant matter, grass roots, and other beneficial insects.
- Chinch bugs- Massive yellow or dead patches of grass are two big signs you may have a chinch bug problem. Chinchs suck out the moisture out of the grass blades and inject them with a type of poison that turns the blades yellow. It can take as little as 3 weeks for them to wipe out your lawn. Unfortunately, most damage can't be detected until early July or August when the weather is hot and dry.
- Sod webworms- If you see tiny moths flying around your grass at night, these are most likely sod webworms. These critters produce brown patches the size of baseballs. The larvae will chew on the leaves and stems of the grass blades. As the webworms mature and continue to feed, the afflicted areas will enlarge. Damage caused by dog urine can sometimes be mistaken for sod webworms, but a lawn care professional can differentiate between the two.
