This month is starting out HOT. With temperatures expected to remain in the 90’s for the next couple of weeks, precautions during these extended times of extreme heat is essential to maintain good health for people AND for the landscape. The stress on trees, shrubs and lawn presents in a variety of ways, so it is important to recognize the signs and head off any damage to plants. As we maintain your site, be assured we are keeping a watchful eye for issues or signs of stress.
PLANT HEALTH CARE PRECAUTION
As a safeguard against damaging plants, weed control will not be applied for the next two weeks. Herbicides break down in extreme heat which renders them ineffective against weeds and harmful to plants. Treatments will resume when this current heat wave has passed and conditions are safe for use.
CHINCH BUG SIGHTINGS
Our teams are continuously watching for the onset of plant health issues and have identified chinch bug damage at a few sites this week. Affected lawns appear in the form of brown or bare patches of grass, and may cause animals to dig in the turf. Since chinch bug treatment is not affected by heat, these applications will be ongoing as issues are identified.
