The Q&A Archives: bugs in the lawn

Question: I have a problem with little white bugs in my grass. They seem to fly up when you walk on the grass. I do not want to use harsh chemicals on my lawn. Is there a more natural way to get rid of these bugs ( I do not know what they are)?

Answer: Without knowing what the insects are, it is hard to make a recommendation, especially an organic solution because most products are specific to specific pests. You might want to try to collect a few of these pests and take them (in a sealed baggie) to your local garden center. Helpful folks there can identify the pests and make treatment recommendations.

Best wishes with your lawn.
