Pest Issues that affect your lawn by Seamus Dillon

For those of us that have properties to maintain in Muskegon and Ottawa counties, there is a new pest called, “hemlock woolly adelgid or HWA”. This is a tiny insect and feeds on the sap of the hemlock trees. These small creatures can kill a hemlock in only 4 years. The best way to recognize an attack by this pest is to look for a white cottony mass attached to the twigs at the base of the needles. It is best to check with your local Landscape expert for more help or proper diagnosis or go to #ihatepests
