Lawn insurance policy

As the weather warms and we concentrate on returning our lawns to full health after the winter period, we enter a new challenge that in previous years has had us tearing our hair out. That’s right, we are full steam ahead into lawn pest season. Commonly known as lawn grubs, these pests like a thief in the night can wipe out a lawn in a matter of days. Lawn grubs don’t discriminate, and every lawn is vulnerable regardless of whether you believe your patch is not quite up to scratch to those beautifully manicured LawnPride lawns.

The usual suspects.

Armyworm - Spodoptera mauriti

Fall Armyworm - Spodoptera frugiperda

Curl Grub - Cyclocephala signaticollis


In the past when homeowners have been confronted by these pests, panic would set in and we would race to purchase and apply somewhat toxic short term contact pesticides to gain control, but these days are now behind us. The advantage of a safe residual product that is easy to apply in a granular formation at the start of the season has certainly been a game changer. Acelepryn has become not only the best product for season long control, it has become an insurance policy for your lawn. Don’t run the gauntlet, if you build it, they will come. You are actively creating a buffet for these pests and they will oblige, so by protecting yourself and putting all the right measures in place not only will you have a pest free lawn you will be able to enjoy your prized plot stress free this spring and summer.
