So, it's illegal to use a pesticide unless you have a pest that's on the pesticide's label. It should not be used as a preventative measure. That doesn't stop many gardeners and growers, true, but the pests will laugh at your wasted money if you apply the ones that don't kill them.

What you should do is find out if you have a pest problem and what it is. If it's a very small amount, I would just do nothing and let natural predators take care of it. No need to waste money and upset the natural balance in the process.

I'm not really familiar with lawns since I've mostly tried to get rid of them to plant more edibles. Seems like a big money and time drain to apply since pesticides are not cheap and lawns are big areas.
