Artificial grass itself does not inherently attract insects in the same way natural grass does, because it does not offer a natural environment or food sources that many pests find appealing. However, it's important to consider a few nuances:
Lack of Organic Matter: Unlike natural grass, synthetic turf does not provide organic matter (like decaying leaves and grass clippings) that many insects feed on, making it less attractive to them.
Drainage: High-quality artificial grass is designed with effective drainage, which helps prevent standing water that can attract mosquitoes and other water-breeding insects.
Infill Material: Some types of infill used in artificial turf can be more attractive to insects than others. For example, sand-based infills might attract ants, though this is more about the insects using the sand for their nests rather than being attracted to the turf itself.
Maintenance: Proper maintenance of artificial turf can reduce the likelihood of attracting insects. This includes regular cleaning to remove food particles and pet waste, which might attract ants, flies, and other pests.
Potential Habitats: While the turf itself might not attract insects, the edges and the underlay materials can sometimes provide a habitat for spiders, ants, and other insects if not properly installed or maintained.
In short, while artificial grass does not attract insects in the way natural lawns do, it's still possible for pests to be present if there are other attractions or habitats nearby. Proper installation and maintenance are key to minimizing any potential issues with insects.

Yes, our turf can be installed onto asphalt. However, it is not a good idea to lay tiles right over the turf, rather, we will suggest you to lay the tiles first, then cut turf into strips and fit in between tiles, you should use turf glues to affix the turf in place.

The exact width is 15’-2” without manufacturer’s flaps. In most applications, installers to cut off first couple of stitch lines especially for seaming purpose.

From what you are describing, I suspect the “shrinking” is due to some excessive heat which can be window or other object reflections or nearby heat sources like fence or pavements or objects being placed on the turf. Turf is like carpet which can be cut and patched, if you only have a 4”x4” area to be fixed and you still have any leftover turf from your original installation, you can cut the bad section out and patched with a new piece.
