Shrub Damaging Insects
Having shrubs planted around our homes can create a beautiful, appealing landscape. But do your shrubs ever have a look like they just aren’t doing well?
This could be caused by shrub damaging insects! Don’t let these little pests become big problems to your shrubs. Insects can harm your lawn and shrubs in a variety of ways. Some eat the grass and leaves, some attack the root systems, while others tunnel through the soil. No matter how these insects go about, the end result is unattractive which may ultimately impact the value of your property.
