Insects love lawns, but they do not all contribute much good when they make a home there. Don’t let your turf become the hub for unwanted bugs – call up our team here at MOTO Turf about our pesticides services.

Too many bugs in your garden can not only damage your lawn, but they also pose a risk of getting into your house. And we’re sure you don’t want that! 

Insects aren’t the only hazards you should watch out for to protect your lawn. Weeds can choke your grass as well as present a massive eyesore in your backyard.

Your go-to herbicide & insecticide service

When you choose to work with our team at MOTO Turf, you will get specialists who know what the best products are to keep your DIY lawn healthy and fresh. 

Pesticides and herbicides have the valuable purpose of destroying any plants and animals that can harm your plants. However, as you might already know, pesticides containing artificial chemicals have a proven environmental impact. That’s why we at MOTO Turf use biologically-based products in our pesticide services.

The Pros

There are many advantages to using pesticide services. Our team at MOTO Turf is here to shed light on what they are.

They keep pests out

Using pesticides keeps unwanted bugs and vermin out of your turf. Mice and insects love burrowing in the grass, but their presence damages the plant. With no pests on your lawn, you can feel far more comfortable going out there and enjoying your outdoor space.

No weeds

Pesticides and herbicides keep weeds out. Not only are weeds visually unattractive, but they also steal valuable nutrients and water from your grass. That can make your lawn unhealthy and therefore less lush. Getting rid of those weeds will allow your lawn to absorb all the nutrients it needs and stay green and beautiful.

Protect you from diseases carried by pests

Mosquitos and vermin can carry diseases that can be harmful to humans if they come into contact. Wasp stings can induce allergic reactions in some people that can prove fatal. Fleas cause significant discomfort to dogs and cats (and humans!).
Removing these pests from their origin will prevent the hazards they bring from getting near you, your green lawn, your home, and your family.

They are easy to access

With the help of our team at MOTO Turf – as well as our free, no-obligation consultation – you can find out how you can use pesticides on your lawn and get your yard looking perfect on your own. Or, you could choose us, and we can do the work for you. Give us a call today to find out more about our pesticide services!

The Cons

Here at MOTO Turf, we care about making your lawn as lovely and green as it can be. There are some cons to using pesticides that become especially prevalent when using products containing artificial chemicals. You can avoid a lot of the following drawbacks by using organic pesticides, so if you’d like to know more, talk to our team.

Unsafe for human ingestion

This concern is especially significant for anyone with children. Some chemicals from pesticides can linger in the air and, when inhaled, can be harmful to your health. As young children tend to be closer to the grass than adults, we need to be especially careful that children do not enter a space where they breathe these chemicals in.

Harmful for the environment

The use of pesticides can decrease the population of pollinators such as bees and butterflies. Lots of native animals can die from eating plants that have been sprayed with pesticides. It is also common for a significant amount of the pesticide that you spray (up to 95%!) to contaminate somewhere beyond where you intended it to go. That includes waterways, air, and soil.

Pesticide drift is a major contributing factor to water pollution.

Using your pesticide

To make the most of your pesticide and get it where you’re targeting it, our team at MOTO Turf has a few handy tips. 

First, if you’re using them for weeds, only apply during an active growing season for weeds. The most common seasons for weeds to grow in New Zealand are spring and autumn. Make sure it’s not a windy day, and you’re not expecting rain. That way, the chemicals won’t blow all over the place or sink into the soil.
