There is a misconception that chemical pesticides will rid your lawn of the infestation of pests. It actually has the potential to do the opposite. Because pesticides kill off beneficial organisms that feed on their harmful counterparts, pests actually find chemically saturated lawns appealing. Pests thrive off of out-of-balance ecosystems.
The best way to eradicate pests from your lawn is to make the environment unattractive to them. By creating a healthy ecological coalition in the soil, you’ll be allowing favorable microorganisms, insects and plants to grow while discouraging pests from setting up shop.
