Many different species of insect pests are found in home lawns in Mississippi. These include insects such as chinch bugs and white grubs that directly attack and damage turf grass, pests such as slugs and millipedes that can become a nuisance when they occur in high numbers, and pests such as fire ants, wasps, and ticks that directly attack the homeowner and others using the lawn.

This publication addresses some of the most common pests of lawns in Mississippi and provides information to help identify them. It also provides basic biological information about each pest, describes the damage they cause, and gives general information on control and examples of useful pest-control products.
