America's Least Wanted Bugs
There are many bugs that can ruin your day if found in your lawn or landscape, but these 4 suspects are at the top of the list.
Here are two dead giveaways that you have a grub problem: dead patches of turf that can be lifted up like the corner of an area rug, and having your yard dug up by raccoons, skunks, or armadillos. White grubs, which are the larvae of Japanese, European chafer, June, and Oriental beetles (among others), have voracious appetites and begin to snack on the nearest food source – your lawn’s roots – immediately after hatching in summer.
Any kind of tick is a blood-sucking annoyance, but some types may also transmit Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. Like fleas, ticks are unable to fly; instead, they wait patiently for you, your pet, or random wildlife to wander by so they can latch on and begin feeding.
These tiny, jumping pests thrive in warm, humid weather and live to suck blood. A female flea can lay up to 50 eggs per day, so your landscape can harbor an enormous number of fleas just waiting to hitch a ride on you or the family pet.
In the South, nothing starts an intense conversation faster than a mention of fire ants. Their painful bites and aggressive behavior make them a nuisance throughout the region. What’s more, they love to build mounds in open, sunny areas (like your yard), creating underground tunnel systems that can run for 25 feet in any direction.
