Crayfish or Crawdads
Yes, we have found them in our lawns. With the recent rain and flooding in some parts of the state, you may find crawdads where you think they don't belong. These crustaceans are also referred to as crawfish, mud bugs, or stonecrabs.
Fire Ants, Fleas and Ticks
Rush Lawn Care & Design also provides applications to control Fire Ants and fleas and ticks.
We use products to move the grubworms out of the area by killing their food source. We recommend applying a preventative in April or September when the grubs are smaller and more manageable. Other times of the year, we apply an insecticide to gain control.

Voles are also becoming a nuisance in some southerner’s lawns. Also called meadow mice or field mice, voles can cause damage to your trees, ornamental plants and small lawn areas.
