Safety Products

Please be sure to read the product label of any insecticide you choose to use to get information on the personal protective safety gear you will need. In most situations, it is recommended that you wear long pants, a long sleeved shirt, closed toe shoes with socks, chemical resistant gloves, and goggles. In areas where ventilation is poor, a manufacturer may recommend you wear a mask or a respirator. We have put together two different safety kits that will make selecting the correct safety gear easier for you.

Since powdery mildew has a recognizable appearance, it's easy to identify, and it will be even easier when you know where and what time of year to look for this turf disease.
Step 1

Inspect The Right Locations

Powdery mildew thrives areas with high humidity, low air circulation, low light intensity, and cooler temperatures. The first signs of powdery mildew will appear in areas with these characteristics, usually in shady areas that don't get much sunlight or air circulation, like near buildings, under overhangs, etc.
Step 2

Inspect At The Right Time

Periods of high humidity combined with cloudy skies creates a great environment for powdery mildew to grow and thrive. When this type of weather is expected, be sure to inspect your lawn for this disease, especially in shaded areas.
