Don’t lose the battle over Chinch Bugs. Chinch bugs can attack a lawn quickly as weather warms and adults move into open areas where females lay eggs. These eggs hatch, and begin feeding on grass plants while releasing plant damaging toxins. Damaged areas first appear as yellowish to brownish patches which enlarge as the insects spread. Lawn Doctor’s Chinch Bug Control reduces the number of these pests on your property and minimizes the risk of infestation.
Fire ants are destructive insects that can infest lawns, ornamental beds and homes.These insects build large, highly visible mounds that can ruin the appearance and value of your landscape. Fire Ants also cause damage to your lawn and landscape as they create underground tunnels, feeding on seeds and young plants. Fire ants are also known for inflicting painful, and sometimes dangerous, stings on humans and pets.
The threat of being stung by a Fire Ant may limit your outdoor activities, reducing your quality of life and valuable time spent with family and friends. With just one treatment of our revolutionary new product, Lawn Doctor can reduce the infestation of Fire Ants for up to one full year. Don’t let Fire Ants ruin your outdoor activities this season.

Grubs are the larval stage of several beetles. During their life cycle, they exist approximately two inches below the lawn’s surface, continuously feeding on the root system. Proactively treat your lawn for grubs with Lawn Doctor’s Preventative Grub Control. Grub damage is most likely to occur in the late summer and early fall months. However, grubs can also be present and cause damage in the late spring. Grub activity will encourage damage due to scavenging animals including moles, skunks and birds, all of which will search for grubs to feed on. Damage may not be apparent until it is too late, requiring costly repair.
Lawn Doctor can provide the best treatment to help prevent damage before it occurs. A properly cared for landscape adds both beauty and value to your home while it provides natural support for the environment. Your local Lawn Doctor can help you create and maintain the quality landscape you deserve to have surrounding your home.
The Sod Webworm is the caterpillar state of a common lawn moth. The night flying moths drop eggs from which the caterpillars hatch in the lawn and begin to feed on grass plans almost immediately. Damaged areas have yellow patches of turf that may eventually turn brown and die. Webworms are only active at night, chewing grass leaves, often severing the entire plant at the crown. During the day they retreat to silk lined tunnels in the thatch or soil. Birds flocking to your lawn to feed may indicate Sod Webworm activity. Control of Sod Webworms is included in your Lawn Doctor Maintainer Care program.
