Q. Do I have grubs if there are moles tunneling in my lawn?
A. Maybe. While moles do feed on grubs, they also feed on earthworms that are abundant in the soil. It should be inspected. If there are grubs then an insecticide may be called for but it should not be applied just because you see moles in your lawn. The insect control will not kill 100% of the grubs anyway, so this measure never eliminates mole problems.
Q. If I cut my lawn short (below 2 1/2") can I m cut my lawn less often?
A. NO!!! When your lawn is cut short the mechanism within the grass plant will make the grass plant want to grow back even faster. If you do this often it will eventually permanently damage the lawn. The proper height should be 3-4". Cutting your lawn short will also encourage the spreading of weeds and crabgrass. Visit the Lawn Care Tips page

A. NO. In fact you need the treatment even more so that when good condition return, you want to make sure that your lawn has the nutrition needed to recover. Also our treatment is based on what is happening to your lawn at the time of the application. Even more importantly that application will have insect control in it, and that is important because when your lawn is stressed, lawn insects will move into those areas quickly. And the fertilizer that is used at that time is a root developing nature that does not burn your lawn during hot and dry weather.
