Getting a Handle on Hairy Chinch Bugs

Ottawa business owners have enough to worry about without adding lawn pests to the list. Unfortunately, Ottawa often falls prey to an awful infestation of hairy chinch bugs during the summer months, and commercial properties aren't exempt from the attack. Protect your lawn from these vicious little bugs early with pesticide treatments from the lawn care and commercial sprinkler system experts at Nutri-Lawn.

How to Tell if Your Lawn is in a Hairy Situation

Hairy chinch bugs are extremely small (about 5 millimetres in length) with six reddish legs. A fully grown hairy chinch bug has a black body and white wings. Immature hairy chinch bugs are bright red with distinct white bands across their backs. If you happen to inspect a hairy chinch bug up close, be careful!

Techniques to Tackle Common Lawn Diseases

Common lawn diseases are difficult to diagnose. In most cases, the only sign of distress is when the grass is already dead. If your lawn is already exhibiting patches of dead or yellowing grass, don't despair. The expert lawn care and inground sprinkler system installers at Nutri-Lawn Ottawa can help you tackle these problematic patches and prevent the spread of disease. The following diseases are the ones most commonly found on local lawns:

1) Snow Moulds

Snow moulds are caused by several species of fungi, most of which grow at temperatures near freezing. Symptoms of this common lawn disease are most prevalent in the spring, or whenever the first major snow melt occurs. Signs of snow mould include circular or irregular straw-coloured patches that are topped by fluffy grey or pink mould spores. The residential sprinkler installers at Nutri-Lawn Ottawa usually notice damage in areas where snow persists longer in the spring (the areas next to driveways are often the first to show signs of distress).
