Answer:

There are some alternative treatments of lawn care available at garden centers including organic nitrogen, alfalfa-based fertilizers, manure-based fertilizers, milorganite (sewage sludge), and corn gluten.

Here is a link which includes some organic options for lawn care. In order to help with insect problems, we will need specific information about the pest(s) you are trying to control. - Laura, Johnson County Extension
