The elimination of most fungi can be prevented or controlled with traditional spraying or dusting.   To repeat, this is not a cure.   To prevent these fungi from appearing and damaging your turf, the turf must be sprayed before and not after the disease strikes.   It must be kept on the turf as constantly as possible for the period the disease period is likely to attack.

Collier Pest Control does not offer monthly or other scheduled turf maintenance programs.   Collier Pest Control does offer one time correction treatments for fungi and other turf damaging problems. If you have been told or suspect you may have a fungus problem in your lawn, call Collier Pest Control, 239-455-4300 for a complete explanation to any of our services.   You also can look us up on our web site at collierpestcontrol.com or Email us at info@collierpestcontrol.com .   Remember Florida does not have to be shared with insects.
