What do you do in your yard? Do you go out there to enjoy time near the pool? Do you call your friends and hang out around a grill or a fire pit? Do your kids go out to play on the swingset or on the tire swing your grandfather put up decades ago? There are many things you might do in your yard, but whatever you do out there, your fun can be ruined by yard pests. Today, we're going to talk about how you can get Hendersonville's lawn pests under control.
What Is A Yard pest?
There are many insects and invertebrates that live in your yard. Most of them are harmless. But a select few can make you miserable.
Ticks And Fleas — These tiny pests are carried into your yard by animals. When animals nest in your yard, ticks or fleas can develop. While a tick bite isn't painful, it can be creepy to find a big ol' tick on your skin. Flea bites can be miserable, but fleas don't bite you in your yard. They need to get in first. Ticks and fleas that establish themselves in your yard can be picked up by your dog or cat and brought inside. They can also come in on rodents and other animals.
Biting Pests — These are the pests that can impact your comfort outside. When chiggers, fire ants, mosquitoes and other biting pests enter your yard, they can get you while you're out in your yard. They may also find their way inside.
What Is Yard Pest Control?
There are many creatures that live in your yard that can accidentally become household pests. We keep these pests out of Hendersonville homes with our Perimeter PLUS Pest Control. This program consists of exterior treatments and other pest maintenance that is performed around the perimeter of your home. Yard pests, especially those biting and stinging pests, require a little more attention. For these critters, we recommend our Stinging & Biting Insect Yard Treatments.
How Yard Protection Works
The pests that establish themselves in your yard may not ever come in contact with your perimeter protection or come into your home. Fire ants, for instance, can make lots of nests in your yard and only torment you while you're doing yard work. Mosquitoes can bite you while you're relaxing by the pool, enjoying a family gathering, or doing some other outside activity. We address yard pests by creating a custom treatment plan for your yard that targets these pests. This may include:
Extended misting applications in the areas needed and in the amounts needed.
Granule products applied to key areas to stop the cycle of development and give you long-lasting, positive results.
Direct treatments applied to fire ant mounds as necessary.
The products and strategies we use are of the highest standards in the industry. They take into account the biology of the yard pests we treat so that the treatments will not only be effective but also harmless to other organisms we aren't targeting.
