The summer is here and who doesn’t like to spend a significant portion of their day outside? Especially now, when the world is closed because of a pandemic, outdoor activities are more important than ever. Unfortunately, with the warmth of the summer and the rebirth of life in the spring, pests are back. Fleas, mosquitos and ticks are a nuisance to even the most manicured landscape, which is why tick control and other tactics are necessary before you can begin enjoying your backyard, but don’t do it yourself. Trust the experts to keep you and your property healthy and safe.
1. Total Yard Coverage
While you can purchase commercial sprays for your home exterior, it is difficult to know when you have adequate coverage of the space. Professionals understand the chemicals they use and the pest they fight, so they know the right amounts to use to create an impenetrable border for your yard. Landscape companies also cover the entirety of your yard to ensure that your lawn is uninhabitable for those pesky insects.
2. Family and Pet Protection
One thing many homeowners worry about is harming their family and pets. Too many over-the-counter insect treatments have harmful and poisonous chemicals that not only affect the pests but can hurt the people and animals they mean to protect. Landscape companies use flea, mosquito and tick control products safe for families, and even then, they warn people to stay off of the lawns until the products have had ample time to dry.
3. Continue services
The best part of hiring a professional lawn care service is the continued protection you receive through the summer. Most companies offer packages to respray your yard after so many weeks, from early spring through the fall, providing families with the ultimate pest protection.
While you can buy over-the-counter sprays, hiring a professional company for flea, mosquito and tick control is more beneficial. Contact a local service to schedule an assessment.
