Pests, Weeds & Diseases
EMPIRE™ ZOYSIA is very resistant to pests, weeds and fungi compared to most other turf varieties, but as with any natural product, occasional problems can occur. If these problems occur we recommend the following:
- Pests – watch for the lawn grub (e.g. web worm or army worm) and african black beetle- apply suitable pesticides according to directions.
- Fungi – watch for Brown Patch and Grey Leaf Spot- apply systemic fungicide.
- Weeds – if weeds infest, hand eradicate before seed head develops or apply a suitable weedicide(ask your local garden centre.)
