Insect and Grub Control in Joliet
Insects and grubs have the ability to cause significant damage to your lawn. The grub worm is the larval form of a variety of different kinds of scarab beetles like the Japanese beetle, Chafer beetle, and green June beetle. These pale white C-shaped larvae feed on the roots of your grass munching away until the grass dies. That’s why we believe it’s best to locate grubs early right after they hatch.
Signs You Have Grubs Include:
- The turf is loose and can be pulled up like a carpet.
- Dead spots or thinning yellowing or brown grass.
- Irregularly shaped brown patches on your lawn.
How To Prevent and Treat A Grub Infestation
Store-bought grub or insect sprays are ineffective against a grub infestation. The Nutrimax springtime Grub Prevention Program specifically targets grubs before these pests have any chance to do damage to your lawn.
Surface-Feeding Insect Control
Unfortunately, your beautiful lawn can also be a haven for unwanted surface-feeding insects. These bugs can damage your lawn, leaving it weakened and unsightly. Our technicians will spray a low-impact pesticide as needed to keep these insects at bay.
Signs You Have Problems with Insects Inhabiting Your Joliet Lawn Include:
- Bare spots.
- Yellow or brown grass patches.
- Skeletonized leaves.
- Dry, brittle, or wilting grass
Nutrimax Lawns Bounce Back!
Grubs and insects don’t stand a chance with Nutrimax. Your healthy, organically nourished lawn will bounce back with our Lawn Care Program and Aggressive Feeding Strategy.
Lawn Disease Treatment in Joliet
What is Lawn Disease?
Lawn disease is caused by a microorganism attacking your grass. It can affect your lawn at any time.
Signs of Lawn Disease
- Brown patches of dead grass.
- White, yellow, or brown patches that grow in a ring or circle and continue to grow.
- Thin patches of grass.
- Gray, black, red, or purple spots that appear on blades of grass.
- Threadlike structures in your grass.
The Causes of Lawn Disease
- Injury to your grass
- Grass stress caused by dehydration
- Nutrient deficiencies
- Improper fertilizer treatments
- Incorrect mowing and grass height
- Compacted soil
Lawn Disease Treatment
A soil test will help determine the kind of lawn disease that has infected your grass. We will then provide a lawn disease treatment to return your turf back to its natural health and vigor.
Soil Testing & Amendment in Joliet
Just like you check the pH levels of your swimming pool in the summer, pH soil testing is a must to ensure your lawn is receiving the nutrients it needs to stay healthy, grow, and become resilient to climate, wear and tear, and environmental stressors. Events such as excessive rain or accidental overwatering can cause a decrease in nutrients whereby calcium, magnesium, and potassium are flushed away, leaving your soil with an unhealthy high acidity level. We replace those lost nutrients.
Factors That Affect Your Lawn’s pH Balance
- Poor-quality fertilizer applications
- Heat and humidity
- Salt left over from de-icing
- Compacted soil
Our Effective Lawn pH Treatments in Joliet
Our soil testing experts will take a sample of your soil to determine if the pH level is too high or too low (too basic or acidic). Neither of these conditions is favorable for lawn health. Once evaluated, we will add the necessary combination of minerals just right for the optimum pH level of your specific grass type. The treatment will restore your lawn, guaranteed.
