The key to keeping pests out of your yard is to identify the areas that may harbor these unwanted biters. For mosquitoes, this can include plugged gutters, tires or a flowerpot with standing water. While fleas and ticks might hide in shady wooded areas that also appeals to wildlife and pets. Our expert technicians are trained to inspect all areas that may hide away these biting pests.
After identifying possible trouble areas, your expert technician will noting larvae, droppings, or even adult forms of the pest. This stage determines which area may need additional attention during the application phase.
Next, your tech will take the full inspection and diagnosis into account to determine a customized plan of action that will best suit your home and yard. You may only need partial treatment, or specific shrub and tree application might be more appropriate.
A copy of the plan will be provided so you can better understand what’s being done, and what’s living within your yard. It will also include tips on how to prepare for treatment: mow the grass a day or two before your appointment, remove any toys (child/pet) from the area, etc.; and how to make the treatment more effective: change water in bird baths once a week, drill holes in the bottom of recycling containers, repair leaky faucets, trim overgrown bushes, shrubs, trees, etc.
First, your trained professional will help eliminate pest breeding areas; they will drain water, treat standing water with larvacide pellets, apply a mist to low lying shrubs, bushes, and trees, and target harborage areas for a treatment of the lawn.
Due to the safety of you, your family, and pets, we ask that you keep away from treated areas for at least four hours. For effectiveness do not treat bushes, trees, or shrubbery for at least two weeks after treatment.
You should start seeing results within 24 hours after treatment, however, it can take up to 10-14 days for full results to take hold.
