An insecticide is a chemical pesticide to control unwanted insects that damage your lawn. At Lawn Addicts, we have a wide variety of insecticides formulated to kill, repel or mitigate one or more species of insect. Insecticides can function in different ways. Some disrupt the nervous system, others damage the exoskeletons, repel or control insects by other means.Read More

Insecticides can be applied in various methods including sprays, dusts, gels, and baits. Because of the form and application, each insecticide poses a level of risk to non-targeted insects, the environment, animals and even people.

There are two types of insecticide:

  • Non systemic – a topical contact form often called Knockdown
  • Systemic – a very soluble form that is capable of being absorbed into the plant tissues and circulated, resulting in the plant becoming toxic to those insects that feed on it.

At Lawn Addicts, we can help you choose the most effective insecticides, based on turf insect identification and grass identification.

Please note insecticide product labels and safety precautions must be followed.
