Summer Swarm

You are enjoying a nice summer evening outside with family and friends. Suddenly, you are overcome with swarms of flying gnats. What you have encountered is called a male mating “cloud.” Basically, this is when male gnats fly in a cluster around dusk each night looking for love. Clearly you are not a female gnat, so why bother you? They are attracted to your body temperature, odor and sweat. Also, they tend to fly towards your eyes and mouth because they are drawn to the moisture. They ruin your fun, but placing bug zappers around your yard won’t help, since gnats are not attracted to light. read more →

What are grubs, and are they bad for my Omaha lawn?

The definition of grub has two meanings. The first is “the larva of an insect, especially a beetle.” The second is a noun meaning “food.” This is interesting because grubs are an edible source of protein and fat. Described as tasting like chicken when roasted (really!), they are ranked #4 in backpacker.com’s list of edible insects! Whether you are adventurous and decide to add grubs to your diet or not, that is entirely up to you! Few in the Omaha metro area embrace grubs as a snack. They do, however, often come across grubs when planting gardens and working in their yards each summer. So today we will focus on the first definition, and talk about how these insects can wreak havoc on your lawn, and how to protect your lawn’s root system. read more →
