Lawn, Turf, Ornamental Pests
Home lawns and ornamentals (shrubs, trees, flowers, etc.) are commonly infested with insects, bugs, weeds, diseases and other pests which cause severe damage to turfgrass. These pests can be divided into two groups based on their location: SOIL INHABITANTS and THATCH INHABITANTS. Both groups severely damage lawns.

Get Rid of Fire Ants
Fire ants do not inflict pain by biting but they do have a sting that is somewhat similar to that of wasps and bees. Fire ants hold on with their mouthparts and inject venom into skin through a smooth - not barbed - stinger. As the ant holds on to its victim's skin (by biting the skin) it swings around in a circle, injecting its smooth stinger into the skin numerous times.

Insect Management in Your Florida Lawn
Several insects and insect relatives live in Florida lawns, but not all of them hurt the grass. Many are harmless, some are beneficial, and some are pests. Only a few cause significant damage and need immediate control.
