QWill receiving a grub control insecticide reduce my mole problem?
 
AIn most cases, no. 90% of a mole's diet is earthworms and only 10% grubworms. So you could see a reduction in mole activity from an insecticide, but the control would be marginal.
 
 
QMy lawn has a lot of crabgrass, should I focus on treatments or overseeding or both?
 
AIn most cases an aggressive 5-7 application program will solve the problem. The most common mistake is homeowners neglect treatments to seed. This is a huge mistake. Treatments first, seed second.
 
 
QI am getting lawn treatments, a spring application and a fall application, but my lawn is not filling in like I had hoped. Why aren't those treatments helping?
 
AA spring and fall approach is a bare bones approach, it is never recommended, but homeowners select it for cost savings. When you only select 2 treatments per year, you should expect modest results. Like my dad always said... "do not expect a Cadillac at a Chevy price." Increasing treatments will solve problems, guaranteed!
 
 
QMy wife likes the lawn cut short at 2", but now my yard has a lot of crabgrass in July, why do I have crabgrass if you are treating for it?
 
ACutting height is the most important thing in controlling weeds. Cutting the lawn at 2" instead of 3" increases crabgrass 50-100%. A small thing like raising cutting height will guarantee results with treatments. But proper mowing is just as important and often overlooked.
