Lawn pests are critters that invade your lawn and do a lot of damage in a short period of time. Take the innocuous mole: this small creature doesn't look like it could ruin a whole lawn. However, in the process of making its home underground, it will criss-cross your yard with tunnels and cause the kind of damage you'd never expect from something so small.

Or take the skunk. On one hand, they are helpful in that they remove damaging white grubs from your lawn. Those gross, squirming pests are most of the most destructive pests your lawn can experience. However, skunks like to just move right in and will not only stink the place up, but may also attack and spread rabies to pets.

And then there are dangerous insects, like locusts. While locusts are more commonly associated with fields of grain, they may still descend on your yard and do major damage. They come in such large number that it's nearly impossible to eliminate them all on your own.

Other lawn pests include groundhogs, bees, wasps, excessive amounts of earthworms, and any number of damaging critters. Honestly, the high amounts of lawn pests are almost baffling.

So what do you do? Do you abandon your yard to these vermin? Of course not! You just call a professional pest control agent right away. They will come to your home, inspect the damage, and find a way to eliminate all the lawn pests from your yard. Soon, you'll have a beautiful and green lawn that anyone will love.
