Ants are common pests throughout the world. They are a nuisance, largely because of the annoyance caused by their presence - constructing mounds in the lawn or invading the home from the yard in search of food.
Adult fleas are no larger than 1/8 inch long. They are reddish-brown, wingless insects that are laterally compressed, so they look as if they are walking on the edge.
Although ticks are commonly thought of as insects, they are actually arachnids like spiders and mites. They have 4 pairs of legs and no antennae. They lie in wait for a passing deer, pet, or person to walk near the shrub or grass they are perched on.
Spiders can be found throughout the country. If you have the occasional fly or gnat in the house, chances are you’ll also have spiders in the house. Spiders live on bugs, but not enough to be considered for pest control.
Adult chinch bugs are about one-fifth of an inch long and black with white wings folded over their backs. Chinch bugs feed on many kinds of lawn grasses, but St. Augustine grass and Zoysia grass are favorites.
If you see spots of brown grass and birds pecking at your lawn, you could be facing a cutworm infestation.
Mole crickets can be twice as long as their singing cousins - and their tunneling can ruin your lawn.
Sod webworms are the larvae of lawn moths. They live in the root level of your lawn and munch up the grass leaves. At the root level, you’ll see small white tubes made of silky web. At dusk, you might even see the worms themselves.
