Carpenter Ants and Their Control
Of the approximately 100 different species of ants found in Iowa, the most destructive are carpenter ants. Most carpenter ants are large and shiny black, although some species are dark brown or reddish and medium-sized. These ants can cause major structural damage when they tunnel in wood to construct their nests.

This publication covers identification, life cycle and habits, management and prevention of carpenter ants.

Crabgrass (Digitaria spp.)
Crabgrass, sometimes called watergrass, is a warm-season annual grassy weed that is prevalent in Iowa. Crabgrass germinates in the spring once soil temperatures hit 55°F for four straight days and nights, and will die with the cooler weather and frost in the fall. Iowa has both Digitaria ischaemum (smooth crabgrass, smooth hairless stems with hairs where the stem and leaf meet) as well as Digitaria sanguinalis (large crabgrass, the stems and leaves contain hairs).

In Iowa, black medic is known to be problematic on both high- and low-maintenance turf and is tolerant of a wide range of mowing heights.
