Organic Grub Control

When converting from a chemical approach or starting a lawn care program for the first time we strongly suggest you start here. The Grub Control program is pesticide free and is a one time application. We truly believe this program is the best in the professional lawn care industry today!

About Us

All of our products and programs are based on improving soil biology to create a suitable and effective growing environment for turf. Based on the science behind larger scale organic agriculture the Bee Safe Organic Lawn Management Program is a patent pending turf care system that will create a beautiful lawn without the use of traditional and potentially dangerous lawn care methods.

Is It Really Organic?

Over the years organic and natural lawn care programs have received a bad rap. Critics have cited limited effectiveness as the primary impediment to mainstream acceptance. By and large the problem with organic and natural lawn care products to date has been that they did not address soil biology.The Bee Safe organic lawn care program address soil biology as a primary means of success as opposed to simply applying varying amounts of water-soluble nitrogen over the course of the year. We believe that successful organic plant management begins and ends with soil biology! In order for turf to thrive in the face of environmental extremes the soil profile supporting that turf must contain a diverse population of beneficial soil microorganisms.These microscopic wonders are natures life support system. They improve nutrient availability, enhance nutrient absorption, reduce the incidence of nutrient leaching, stimulate healthy plant growth, improve the soil structure and provide plants with increased resistance to environmental extremes such as drought, heat, cold and foot traffic.You will find that our program is different than that of any other service in the business. Our philosophy is that proper and sufficient plant nutrition and resistance to weeds, insects and diseases exists when a healthy soil food web is purposely created.The Bee Safe Organic Lawn Management Program feeds the soil through the introduction of select beneficial microbial species allowing them to facilitate the natural processes inherent to healthy plant growth. We blend a diverse array of beneficial soil microorganisms with natural plant extracts and organic nutrients to create microbial systems. These natural systems simultaneously feed the soil and the plant, which allows plants to grow to their full genetic potential.

Why Bee Safe Organic Products?

Quality

Our commitment to you is primarily about creating a healthy, thick and weed free lawn. We are a results driven business and know that you expect the best.

Expertise and Courtesy

When you hire Callahans to care for your property you can be assured that you will be treated courteously at all times. All of our staff are highly trained through a vigorous educational process and understand that without you, the customer, we wouldn’t be here.

Truly Organic Products

The lawn care industry is changing. Because of increased awareness around the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides as they relate to health and the environment many consumers want a safe option. The Bee Safe product line is designed with this in mind and we have effectively eliminated synthetic fertilizers and dangerous pesticides from our use. All of our products are based on improving soil biology thus allowing turf to reach its full genetic potential.

Our Secret Weapon

The goal of organic lawn care is to stimulate the biological activity in the soil. Our products feed the soil through the introduction of select beneficial microbial species allowing them to facilitate the natural processes inherent to healthy plant growth. After many years of research and development and countless hours in the laboratory we have created an active solution of multiple strains of soil improving microbes. Diverse consortiums of bacteria and fungi will not only stimulate the indigenous species of microbes in the soil but we have also proven that applying this active microbial solution will increase biological activity in the soil 100 fold. When we combine this formula with our natural sources of plant nutrition and bio-stimulants, your lawn will reach it’s full genetic potential WITHOUT THE USE OF CHEMICALS.

What about Weeds and Crabgrass

Just because its organic doesnt mean we ignore weeds and crabgrass. We will consistently apply natural weed and crabgrass controls over the course of the season. By using liquid corn gluten we can offer as good of
control of certain weeds and crabgrass.It is important to keep in mind that complete eradication of weeds is almost impossible even with a potent chemical arsenal. The best way to deal with weeds and crabgrass is to follow a proper routine in terms of cultural
practices. Always mow to the appropriate height for the season. Finally, whats wrong with a little tolerance?
