Lawn Pest & Disease Control in Eastern North Carolina
If you are experiencing problems with your lawn related to fire ants or turf disease, our specialized lawn services are a great addition to any one of our lawn care programs.
The sandy soil in the eastern part of the state provides the ideal home for mounding fire ants, while warmer and humid weather conditions create the perfect environment for lawn disease. Our targeted lawn treatment programs can help.
*Our pest control is specific to fire ants. We do not offer any additional lawn pesticide or flea and tick sprays.
Fire Ant Control
Fire ants are aggressive, invasive and their venomous sting is a danger to people and pets.
They are rapidly becoming a serious problem in central and south-eastern parts of North Carolina. Eastern Turf is certified by Bayer Environmental Science as Top Choice Trained Professionals. This means our staff are qualified to apply Top Choice, a cutting-edge fire ant control.
In a single application we can protect your property for an entire year.
That means existing fire ants are eliminated and new colonies are prevented from establishing for a year. Our fire ant control works at any time of year and offers lasting protection for up to 12 months.
If you are experiencing an infestation that is causing lawn damage from pests such as grubs or armyworms, we offer additional treatment options for those as well. Reach out today to find out how we can help.
Our herbicides are usually applied in a liquid form for broad coverage. The time of year weed controls are applied depends on the type of grass you have. Pre-emergent and post-emergent weed controls applied by Eastern Turf Maintenance will control most of your broadleaf weed issues.
Large Patch Control
Large patch is a fungal disease that creates irregular circular areas up to several feet in diameter with a brownish-grey appearance. This turf disease is caused by soil-dwelling fungi that has grown out of control, doing real damage to your lawn.
Anti-fungal treatments should be handled by a professional as it’s all too easy to kill beneficial fungi. This throws the soil severely out of balance and can lead to worsened large patch the following year.
