Why You Need to Keep Common Pests out of Your Yard


Common pests including mosquitoes, ants, fleas, ticks, wasps, and spiders can do more than make your skin crawl--they can spread disease and harm your precious landscaping.

An organized, professional approach is the most effective method to make sure your family members are the only long term residents on your property. Working to keep common pests out of your yard helps to prevent health issues and damage to your property.

Diseases & Illnesses Spread by Mosquitoes Can Cause Fever, Muscle Pain, & Other Complications

It may be humorous to see a person flinch and swat a mosquito, but the illnesses these bloodsuckers can carry are no laughing matter. Mosquitoes make direct contact with the blood of humans and animals, making them the perfect carrier of diseases. The diseases they carry include West Nile Virus, Zika, and Eastern Equine Encephalitis which cause symptoms like fever, muscle pain, vomiting, and other complications. 

Proper, scheduled mosquito treatments not only prevent the annoyance and pain of bites but protect your family and pets from potentially serious illnesses.

Flea Infestations Can Lead to Serious Health Concerns, Especially in Pets

Fleas are another insect that affects both humans and animals. Once a flea infestation has gotten out of control, it’s extremely challenging to clear. It’s important to take a methodical approach to rid your lawn of any trouble before it festers. Regularly scheduled flea treatment is the only way to be certain that the problem is being handled.

Once fleas have multiplied and gotten out of control, they can cause serious health risks, especially for household dogs and cats. The most serious health impacts from flea bites are blood loss, anemia, and tapeworms.

Ants Dig Beneath Your Lawn, Causing Damage to Roots and Turf

The stinging bite is usually no more than an annoyance, but when large numbers of ants swarm they can become a danger to small children and pets. The real danger when ant populations multiply is damage to roots and turf. The mounds they build and the tunnels beneath them can cause roots to lose function and eventually kill your grass.

Our perimeter pest control treatment rids your property of ants to prevent damage to your lawn and landscapes.

Wasps, Hornets, & Spiders Deliver Painful Stings & Bites, Which Can Cause Allergic Reactions

Most people have experienced the burn of a wasp's sting. It’s not pleasant. But even worse is the reaction that some people have to them. Many people have allergies to stings from wasps and hornets, which in some severe cases can lead to a trip to the doctor or hospital. Perimeter pest control prevents them from nesting in your eaves and soffits.

Spiders are one of the most feared insects on planet Earth—and for good reason. There are several species in North America that carry deadly venoms, such as the brown recluse or the black widow. Young children are especially at risk of severe reactions to certain spider venom, so it’s important to manage pest control properly to avoid a potential tragedy.
