Our lawn defender package will protect your lawn from insects like chinch bugs and billbugs.

Our company has been in the industry since 2005, so we've had quite a bit of experience with the common lawn insects in our area. That is why we have created a whole package dedicated to protecting our customers' lawns from the damage that these insects can cause.

Our lawn defender package includes 5 separate treatments, each one the same as the last. We apply an insecticide that uses bifenthrin as the active ingredient. This means that throughout our treatment schedule and beyond, your lawn is protected from over 75 different types of insects. This product kills insects that come in contact with it, no matter if they are crawling on your lawn or flying over it.

Common lawn insects in the Sioux Falls, SD and Sioux City, IA areas include:

  • Chinch bugs
  • Billbugs
  • Webworms
  • Green bug aphids

Our insecticide is eco-friendly and approved by the Department of Agriculture.


Our Lawn Defender Package Schedule

When you sign up for our lawn defender package, you will receive 5 different treatments that are spread out to cover the most active seasons for lawn insects. We do a few treatments over the course of these active seasons to ensure that your lawn is never unprotected.

Our crew will apply our eco-friendly insecticide to your lawn during the following seasons:

  • Mid-spring
  • Late spring
  • Early summer
  • Mid-summer
  • Late summer

We also offer preventative and curative grub treatments.

Grubs are a huge issue in our area. If you have not experienced the damage that they cause to lawns, it is likely that you eventually will without preventative treatments. Grubs are the larvae of several species of scarab beetles. The beetles will lay eggs in the late spring/early summer months. These eggs will hatch in late July or August and the grubs will begin to feed on the roots of your grass. If not prevented or taken care of as soon as their damage is identified, grubs could cause extensive damage to your lawn.

We understand how common grubs are in our area, which is why we highly suggest preventative applications and curative applications if needed. We offer both types of treatments as important parts of our lawn plus and lawn premium packages.

Road Map to a Beautiful Lawn

Lawn Road Map: Step One

Aeration is the First Step

Aeration removes soil cores that can prevent sunlight, water, and nutrients from penetrating the root structure. It promotes lush, healthy grass that’s a great defense against weeds and insect pests. This should be repeated every spring and fall. Learn more about aeration.

Lawn Road Map: Step Two

Fertilization & Weed Control Strengthen Your Lawn

Throughout the season, fertilization and weed control strengthens your grass and kills weeds, which opens the area for more grass to grow once planted in the fall. This should be repeated every season—more on fertilization and weed control.

Lawn Road Map: Step Three

Overseeding Promotes New Growth

In fall, the weeds are under control, the pests are mostly gone, and there are still several weeks of temperatures and conditions ideal for growth. That makes it the only perfect time for overseeding so that you get great new growth ahead of winter and are ready to go the next spring. One other thing to mention is the type of grass seed, which is the most important thing to consider. Choosing the correct seed will give your lawn a better growth habit and improve wear, heat, and drought tolerance. This should be done every fall until thick and then every 3-5 years, or as needed. Get the full story on fall seeding.

Lawn Road Map: Step Four

Keep Your Grass at the Proper Height

Keeping your grass at the proper height for the season has two benefits: it provides shade for the roots during the hotter months and reduces other stresses that can cause damage. During spring and fall, keep it at 3 ½ to 4 inches; go up to 4 ½ inches during the summer. Regardless of length, never cut more than 40% off at once. How to do mowing right.

Lawn Road Map: Step Five

The Right Amount of Water

Adequately water, but don’t overwater. Water 2 or 3 days each week, with an inch per week being the average in spring and fall and up to 2 inches when it gets hotter in the summer. Save water and money by watering early in the morning before evaporation kicks in—more watering tips here.
