Believe it or not, Diseases/Fungus are pests too. They cause great damage to our grasses and landscape plants. Disease is usually caused by TOO MUCH MOISTURE. Too much water causes a rotting effect on plants. In SW Florida, combining rains, humidity and the irrigation on our properties is a perfect recipe for diseases to propagate. There are some diseases, like Dollar Spot Fungus, that can be corrected just by adding extra nutrients. Fairy Ring and other mushrooms are caused by moisture and good soil content and usually do not require treatment. Still other diseases, like Ganoderma (butt rot”), have no cure at all, causing complete death of many types of palm trees in our landscape. Most diseases/fungus need to be to be treated with one of Well’s Termite & Pest Control’s maintenance programs.
