A pest is “any living thing, whether animal, plant, or fungus, which humans consider troublesome to themselves, their possessions, or the environment.” It makes sense, therefore, that “lawn pests” refer to the insects that cause trouble in your yard. Lawn pests can cause aesthetic threats to your turf as well as compromise its health. Like a disease, lawn insects can also quickly multiple after they invade. At Pannone’s Landsaping & Lawn Pros, we recommend fast action against lawn pests to save your lawn.
Stopping the invasion of lawn pests means being able to identify the presence of these pesky creatures first. Unless you regularly lie down on your lawn with a magnifying glass, you’re not likely to see the actual insects at work. Instead, you’ll see the evidence they are there or have been there.

Here are some top signs that you have a pest issue in your lawn:

- Wilting grass blades
- Grass that pulls up easily
