A healthy lawn helps prevent against insect infestations. Dry, stressed, or dormant lawns can harbor insects. Pesticides can be applied, but be careful with the amount of chemicals used on your lawn during the summer which can cause stress for the grass. Typical Houston yard pests include: aphids, caterpillars, fleas, fire ants, chinch bugs, grubs, mosquitoes, spider mites, snails, slugs and beetles.
