Lawn Pest Control in Okemos
When we think of lawn care in the Okemos area, we think of simple maintenance and how we can harness the nourishing power of Mother Nature. We add sprinklers to properties to always keep the grass green. We make sure the lawn is cut regularly so it always looks picturesque and well-maintained. We’ll add hedges, shrubs, plants or a full-fledged garden to make the most of the green space we have.
When grass isn’t growing as well as it should, or if the flowers are dying, we often think it is due to bad practices. Perhaps the sod wasn’t laid over your property correctly, or those flowers were poorly planted.
However, the reason your property isn’t looking so great might not be because of you or your gardener. Pests, rodents, and insects could be responsible for your ailing landscape. When grubs and pests have colonized your Okemos lawn, keeping your property healthy is an uphill battle.

Have Moles Taken Over My Lawn?
Moles can really tear apart a property if they are not taken care of by a professional pest control service. It can be hard to spot an actual mole, but moles always leave many obvious signs behind. You’ll see small hills of dirt and excavated soil. These molehills will usually be near your property’s plants. Why’s that? Because they’re looking for sustenance in the form of earthworms and other insects which may be in the most enriched areas of your lawn. Some moles might even completely uproot some plants during their burrowing process.
The best approach is combating moles is trapping, a pest control practice which Cherry Oak Landscaping is more than familiar with.
