What is killing my lawn? (Hint: It might be ground pearl)

23 May

The most lethal pest of lawn grasses in our area is also one of the least well known. Called ground pearl or pearl bugs, these insects can be found damaging lawns throughout coastal North Carolina. In yards infested with ground pearl it is often impossible to maintain a healthy lawn since there are no effective treatments for this pest. Managing lawns infested with ground pearl instead relies on redesigning landscape beds to minimize turf areas, choosing turf grasses that better tolerate ground pearl, and encouraging vigorous turf growth. http://www.topsailadvertiser.com/news/growing-coastal/what-is-killing-my-lawn-hint-it-might-be-ground-pearl-1.147838
