As you spend more time outside during the summer months, you’ll start noticing the insects that were hiding throughout the winter. Now we see them crawling and flying around your lawn. Although the bugs are certainly not invited, you do have control in knowing what to look for when inviting a lawn service to perform pest control in your home.

Tips for Hiring a Lawn Service

Mistake #1: Hiring a lawn service that lacks extensive knowledge of the insects in your particular area.

No one wants a “one size fits all” approach to their pest problem. The more a pest control technician knows what they’re dealing with, the better. Some of the pests we cover include: fire ants, weevils, earwigs, pharaoh ants, silverfish, roaches, millipedes, carpenter ants, centipedes, scorpions, and spiders.

Mistake #2: Hiring a lawn service that uses toxic chemicals, which could be harmful to people and pets in your home, as well as the environment.

Technology has improved the way pest control can be performed, and when combined with proven treatment techniques, the results are effective and eco-friendly. Such programs will help your lawn flourish in the long-term, as healthy soil is also related to organic treatment.

Mistake #3: Hiring a lawn service that has not assessed your bug situation in-person.

A free estimate is one of the most important things a company can offer a client. It gives you time to voice your concerns and to determine whether you’d like to work with them.

You may need a lawn service for more than your home.
