Grubs and fungus are common problems
They are affecting Long Island across Suffolk and Nassau County. Damage appears as dark brown, dead, patches of grass, which spread over time as the fungus spreads or as the grubs eat through more and more healthy grass. Both are unsightly and can be difficult to diagnose to the untrained eye. Some people may re-seed the area and find themselves bewildered as to why they are not seeing healthy regrowth.

Most lawn diseases are caused by fungus. Usually, lawn infections afflict leaves and shoots, which are the above ground parts of grass. Common signs of a lawn disease are particular patterns appearing on grass strands. Many lawn diseases can be avoided or minimized by using proper management practices contributing to strong root systems.
Eco-friendly fungicide treatments are applied on an as needed basis. Most lawns will not need this application. However, certain weather conditions can increase and promote the spread of diseases throughout your lawn. The product we use is designed to help the grass plant eliminate any problem that might arise.
Tree Boring Insects
Boring insects are often the most harmful to trees and if left intreated can cause death. Boring, or tunneling, insects cause damage by boring into the stem, roots, or twigs of a tree. Some lay eggs which then hatch and the larvae burrow more deeply into the wood blocking off the water-conducting tissues of the tree. Boring insects generally feed on the vascular tissues of the tree. If the infestation is serious, the upper leaves are starved of nutrients and moisture and the tree can die. Signs of borer infestation include entry/exit holes in the bark, small mounds of sawdust at the base, and sections of the crown wilting and dying. It is important to regularly monitor a tree’s trunk for signs of boring insects to enable early identification and quick treatment.
