Dense, immaculate and bright green lawn, this is the dream of every garden owner. Unfortunately, this dream can quickly be shattered if pests have taken up residence in your home, nibbling away at the fine roots of the lawn underground. Below, we'll give you an overview of typical lawn pests and what you can do about them.

Damage caused by lawn pests

Grubs or even the larvae of the leatherjacket sit under the turf and feed on the roots of the lawn, among other things. This leads to an undersupply of nutrients, as a result of which the lawn dies in places and brown spots form. In addition, due to the loss of roots, the lawn also loses its grip on the soil, which means that it can easily be torn out by birds pecking at insect larvae. This can cause massive damage and even complete destruction.
