Identifying and Treating Lawn Diseases in Rapid City

Identifying and Treating Lawn Diseases in Rapid City

The Three Components of Lawn Diseases Are:
1) The Pathogen – The organism that infects the host and causes damage
2) The Environment – Environmental conditions, like high temperatures and low moisture that favor pathogen development or reduce the health and vigor of the lawn
3) The Host – A grass variety or species that are susceptible to that pathogen

What To Look For In Your Lawn:
Spots on leaves, brown patches, or areas of dead grass may look like damage caused by disease, but they do not immediately indicate that there is a disease present in the lawn. Lawnmowers with dull blades, mowing too short (scalping), lawn-damaging insects, a poorly calibrated irrigation system, or a lack of irrigation can also cause symptoms in your lawn that may be confused with lawn disease. A lack of proper irrigation is the most common cause of stress to the lawn in the hot summer, leading to lawn disease.

Lawn Disease Treatments:
If your lawn is positively identified as having disease present, the following steps should be taken.
1) Fungicide application (possible two) 14 to 21 days apart
2) Maintaining lawn mowing height at 3” to 3.5” in the heat of the summer
3) Identifying stress factors (irrigation, proper fertilization, or compaction)

Lawn Pest Control

Grubs, billbugs & sod webworms are three lawn insects that damage lawns in Rapid Valley, SD. The damage caused by all of them first appears as small, brown patches of dead grass. The patches may come together to form large, irregular, dead areas. Unlike sod webworms, grubs kill the grassroots. All three can be quite destructive and hard to control, but now with Warne Chemical & Equipment Company, Inc., our highly effective Grub Control, Billbug Control, and Sod Webworm Control services will eliminate and prevent these lawn pests from invading and taking over your Rapid Valley lawn.
