Answer: I wish I had an easy solution for you but without knowing exactly which pest is living in your lawn, it's difficult to recommend a control strategy. If you could capture a few of the pests and take them to your local cooperative extension office for identification, it would simplify things. If you're unable to do so, you might consider treating the problem area with Borax (20-Mule Team Borax is readily available in grocery stores). Dissolve 10 oz. of Twenty Mule Team Borax in 1/2 cup of warm water; Dilute this solution into 2 1/2 gallons of water. Spray the mixture evenly over 1,000 square feet of lawn. This solution won't harm your lawn but will make the area unpleasant for insects. What it doesn't kill it will repel. You can safely use this Borax solution once a year for two years in a row. After that it could become toxic to your lawn. Hope this information helps!
