One issue that you might encounter in South Florida is the white grub. Technically, a white grub is a larvae of a scarab beetle, and can be found in areas like coastal turfgrass. These grubs are more frequent in Florida, as there are about two generations in our state, for every one generation in states farther north. The best way to combat this problem is insecticide, timed to head off egg hatchings. Because this can be difficult to time, it is something you need to call Island Environmental Pest Control about.

Don’t let white grubs or any other pests threaten your residence or business. There are too many fun occasions to be had to let pests control your plans. Instead of trying to take care of any issue alone, let the experts at Island Environmental Pest Control keep your issues at bay. Don’t hesitate to call us in for a FREE Lawn Analysis or FREE Home Analysis. Contact Island Environmental Pest Control, today, and see how much better your property can be when you control things!

Ant Season Approaching

Island Environmental Pest Control wants to make sure you are able to enjoy your property to the fullest this year. That means taking care of current problems, as well as preparing for upcoming issues. Did you know that the beginning of Spring is also the beginning of ant season? That means, one of our most well known pests is ready to march its way back to your residence or business. In order to prepare, the Professional Pest Management Alliance provided some tips for ant prevention.

  • Habitats – Doing things like removing debris from around a structure, and minimizing groundcover depth can keep ants at bay.
  • Sanitation – It may sound obvious, but if you drop food or spill your drink, make sure to clean it up. Ants love to find the residue of these things.
  • Exclusion – Any cracks or gaps in your structures should be filled, or else they become an easy target for ants.

Keeping these tips in mind can help you have a less ant filled season. However, if ants do rear their ugly heads, you can call Island Environmental Pest Control in to take a look. We also can prevent ants from becoming a major problem, with a little proactive care. Don’t want until your house is overrun by creepy crawlies!

Fungus In Turf

If you have gone outside at all lately, you probably have noticed just how beautiful the weather has been. Cloudless skies, reasonable temperatures, and plenty of sun has been an excellent formula for a great day outdoors. This is the time of year that we live for in South Florida, and there is no reason why you shouldn’t be enjoying it. However, when pests and lawn diseases rear an ugly head, you may be prevented from an otherwise incredible time. If that is your current reality, it is time to call Island Environmental Pest Control.

South Florida has seen more than its fair share of cold days lately. When temperatures drop during the winter months, it is not uncommon to see fungus in turf pop up. St. Augustinegrass and zoysiagrass are especially susceptible to this condition, so if you have those turf types, be on the lookout. The fungus infects the area closest to the soil, eventually killing the leaf itself. Rotting will occur at the base of the leaf, and produce a rotted odor, as well. Let Island Environmental Pest Control come in and help you figure out if you are suffering from this.

Island Environmental Pest Control has been servicing families and businesses in Palm Beach, and the surrounding areas, for a long time. All of that experience is important, as it lets us diagnose anything you throw at us. When it comes to pest control, you absolutely must go with a company that knows what they are doing. Otherwise, you may be facing a reality that doesn’t include enjoying your property during this gorgeous weather.
