Caring for your yard and the areas surrounding your home can be one of the best defenses against pests. Pests like spiders and a wide range of insects will often make their homes in the lawn or shrubbery around the perimeter of the home. If there are any openings, cracks, or other opportunities for entry, there’s a good chance that they will find their way inside. Our pest control professionals are here to treat the interior areas, as well as provide lawn and shrub care to ensure that your home and garden is 100 percent pest-free.

Perimeter Pest Control

One of the keys to successful pest control is keeping the perimeter of the home maintained and protected from pests. Perimeter pest control works to create a protection barrier that lies around the edges and foundation of the home or building. This form of pest control is effective as both a protection and a treatment, meaning that it can help eliminate a current infestation of pests or work to ensure that this is never a problem for home and business owners.

The list of lawn pests is never-ending, including critters like:

  • Millipedes

Lawn Pest Professionals

Our team of experienced professionals will work to make sure that lawn pests are no problem for your home or business. We’ll start with a thorough inspection of the building and yard to help identify any pest issues, opportunities for pest invasion into the home, and environmental factors that could cause or contribute to pest problems. We will then apply a pest control treatment to the perimeter and foundation of the building, giving special care to potential entryways like doorways, windows, and the like.

Lawn Care Tips for Pests

Even after – or before – our work is done, there are some steps that home and business owners can take to ensure that lawn pests do not become a serious issue. Not only can these tips help keep your lawn clean and pest-free, they can also help to maintain the beauty, longevity, and cleanliness of your home and yard.

Lawn pests can be prevented through techniques such as:

  • Sealing cracks that surround windows and doors
  • Removing any debris or firewood piles from the immediate perimeter of the home
  • Ensuring that trash residue does not remain after the garbage is gone
  • Properly storing garbage until it’s time for disposal
  • Identifying and reducing areas that collect water or have excessive moisture
