Weed Control and Abatement from PURCOR
Stay proactive so that you won’t spend your summers pulling and spraying for weeds. PURCOR Pest Solutions provides pre-emergent weed control (also known as bare ground sterilization). Bare ground sterilization occurs in the spring, which prevents weed seeds from germinating and allows for peace of mind throughout the summer. In addition, PURCOR is equipped and licensed to take care of your noxious weeds, pasture, and/or rangeland.
Often, weeds can simply be pulled or hoed out. Grassy weeds, blackberries, and brush, however, cannot be easily pulled once established. When this happens, treating with an herbicide is often the best solution. Follow-up treatments are usually necessary to keep them from becoming re-established. There are a variety of herbicides to choose from, but all must be applied carefully to avoid damage to desired plants.
What’s Wrong with Weeds, Anyway?
Weeds are types of unsightly, nuisance plants that grow in excess or where they are not wanted. In gardens, shrub beds, or pastures, weeds can interfere with the health of plants you actually want to grow by consuming nutrients or blocking light.

Treatment of St. Augustine Grass
We specialize in the treatment of St. Augustine grass. Our lawn treatments consist of regularly scheduled fertilization, weed control, fungicide, and insect control utilizing liquid sprays.
Our fertilization program is a bi-monthly service throughout the year. There is a four-month period during the rainy season from June to September known as the “blackout period” where we apply a micro-nutrient package in place of nitrogen-based fertilizer to help protect the health of our waterways. Throughout the year we assess the overall health of your lawn and recommend additional treatments if needed.
Depending on the time of year, St. Augustine-based grass can be subject to fungus and disease, including brown patches, leaf lesions, and take-all root rot. Once PURCOR determines the specific disease, we can determine the proper treatment protocol to restore healthy lawn growth.
There are three species of insects that are responsible for the majority of turf damage in St. Augustine lawns:
- Chinch bugs
- Sod web worms
- Army worms
Chinch bugs and sod webworms are the most prevalent lawn pests. Control of these insects is included in our routine broad-spectrum insecticide application.
Fire Ant Control
Fire ants are a reoccurring issue in lawns in the Southeast, and we treat them on an as-needed basis. Customized programs for fire ant management are available based upon your individual needs.
