Selective Lawn Weed Control Services
Everyone notices weeds, whether it’s your customers, neighbors or mail carrier. And while they start as an eyesore, weeds can quickly become the cause of a brown, patchy lawn. That’s why it’s essential to keep up with a year-round management program for weed control, which can be a big undertaking. At Bee Green Pest Control, we provide you with a smart solution through our selective lawn weed control services for Riverview, Plant City, Brandon, Seffner, FL, and beyond.
Types of Lawn Weed Control
When it comes to lawn weed control, there are two types of controls, which include:
- Pre-emergent: A pre-emergent weed control focuses on stopping your property’s existing weeds from germinating and spreading. Crabgrass, an all-too-common weed in Central Florida, often requires a pre-emergent herbicide in coordination with a post-emergent one to stop and prevent its individual growth and expansion across your lawn.
- Post-emergent: A post-emergent weed control focuses on killing your existing weeds. At Bee Green Pest Control, we use only selective herbicides in our lawn control services for Seffner, FL, and the surrounding areas, which protects your grass, flowers and other plants from damage. That way, you’re left with a beautiful and flowering landscape free of nutrient-draining weeds.
Our selective lawn weed control incorporates selective herbicides in both our pre- and post-emergent controls to deliver results you can see.
Common Weeds in Central Florida Lawns
In Central Florida, lawns are prone to two kinds of weeds, which include:
- Broadleaf weeds: A broadleaf weed can be a variety of annual and perennial plants, from spear thistle (Cirsium vulgare) to dandelion (Taraxacum) to clover (Trifolium) to chamberbitter (Phyllanthus urinaria). Many broadleaf weeds vary in appearance, which can make identifying a broadleaf weed difficult. A few features that are often shared by broadleaf weeds include bright flowers, like the dandelion’s distinct yellow one, as well as wide leaf shapes — hence their name. Because of their structure and appearance, you can often determine with ease whether your lawn is combatting broadleaf weeds.
- Grassy weeds: A grassy weed can be several different weeds, including yellow nutsedge (Cyperus esculentus), crabgrass (Digitaria sanguinalis), goosegrass (Elusine indica) and orchardgrass (Dactylis glomerata). Unlike broadleaf weeds, a grassy weed shares a similar appearance to your grasses, which can make it hard to find in your lawn, as well as remove from your property. To identify one, look for extended leaf blades that grow parallel to each other. Grassy weeds can also be a perennial or annual weed, which influences whether our team uses a pre- or post-emergent weed control.
When our team evaluates your property, we can show you which weeds are in your lawn, helping you identify them in the future.
