Welcome to my site about pest control. I'm Miranda Maloney. Although many people fuss loudly about the presence of spiders in the home, these creatures often clear out the bugs that cause far worse problems. Spiders consume beetles, cockroaches, moths and other pests that wreak havoc throughout the house. Thankfully, however, you can hire a pest control professional to eliminate bugs in your home if you do not want to co-habitate with spiders. In fact, pest control professionals can eliminate the spiders as well. I will share information about pest control tactics, both natural and commercial, on this site.

Sod webworms are a type of pest that can eat through the roots of your grass, leaving you with bare spots in your grass. You may think that you have grubs or some other pest problem, but sod webworms may be what is causing this issue. These pests look like small brownish-colored caterpillars. You may see them in your grass, and you may also see their web-like tunnels in which they will nest inside until they grow into moths. These pests will feast off of the roots of your grass until they are ready to spawn into a moth. The moths are usually white in color, and you may also see these pests flying about as well. Read on for what you can do about these pests if you find that you have them in your yard.
Treat Your Lawn With A Pesticide
If you suspect that you have sod webworms because you have bare spots in your lawn, you should treat your lawn with a pesticide that can kill these pests. You should read through the manufacturer's instructions on how to use the pesticide and read the packaging to be sure it can kill these pests in your lawn. Treat your lawn as often as necessary in order to kill these pests.
Prevent A Future Problem
To prevent a future problem with sod webworms, you should take good care of your lawn and treat it to make it as healthy as possible. A healthy lawn can block out pests and can ensure you don't have an issue with these pests or other types of pests that can attack your lawn. To do this, you should water your lawn often and use fertilizer to keep it healthy and to ensure proper growth for a strong and healthy lawn. You should also seed your lawn at the beginning and the end of the season for a hearty lawn.
Keep Your Lawn Trimmed
Trim your lawn often, but don't trim it too low. Trimming your lawn too low can encourage the growth of weeds and can also dry out your lawn, which may then attract these or other pests to your lawn. Trim your lawn to keep out other pests and to ensure a healthy lawn.
If you have sod webworms, you should hire a professional pest control expert to help you get control of this problem before they take over your lawn and you end up with more bare spots than not in your yard.
