Insect infestation is a big problem in the lawn. It is, in fact, a big menace. Once there are insects in the garden, it is a tough call to have them eradicated. Thus, it is a good idea to actually have pre-treatment done so that no insects can come within the premises at all in the first place. Prevention, as such and as is always the case, is far better than cure. Thus, once you have a home or an office with a lawn in it, it is a good idea to get the insect control people and have them do-up the place thoroughly well. They will see to it that no insects come in by doing the necessary pest control work.
For example, you have a kitchen garden. In this aspect, it is very necessary to have pest control or insect treatment done or else rodents will destroy the vegetables which are growing in the garden. They will not let the fruit ripen even and take pecks at it while it is in the ripening stage. For instance, parrots and parakeets destroy vegetables like green chilies and fruits like guava. Peacocks, if there in the area, will come and take a peck at growing cauliflower, cabbage et al and not let them fully grow. They even eat up leaves and not just the growing vegetables and fruits.
There are tons of medications available to sort out this issue. But, the real fact of the matter is that the insect control or insect treatment has to be done time and again since the leaves and crops keep growing. As they grow, more leaves and fruit appear on them and this too needs to have the pest control dusting on it to safeguard it from pests, animals, and birds.
What else can be done to sort out this issue?
There are many fungicides and insecticides available in the market which can either be dusted onto the plants or even sprayed onto them. The exact method depends upon which crops and plants are being fumigated. The summer months are rife with insect activity. In most cases, this is the time along with spring when insects replicate and reproduce and create many more of their kind. One has to keep a strict vigil at these times and be prepared for them well in advance. During winters, this activity more or less goes on a back burner in most events. However, some fungi and insects are active during this time as well and need to be kept at bay. It is not surprising that if one does not keep a good watch over such aspects, the whole lawn can get destroyed due to insect infestation. Rodents too destroy a number of plants and if these are around, it is best to get regular insect control done in the lawn area. Otherwise, a lot of hard work and effort will go down the drain.
