Most of the time, people associate pest control for their lawns with spring and summer, where the pest species are most active. While they may have a legitimate point here, the fact is that there are some unique concerns during the fall as well. Here are the key facts you need to look at.
Is It Necessary? Why Is It important?
For one thing, pest control for the lawn in fall is still necessary, depending on where you live. There are still many bugs that are active during this time that can impact the quality of your grass or spread to your other garden/greenery. This doesn’t even include burrowing pests like moles, which can weaken the ground or turf. Keeping up with pest control is important for a number of reasons. The obvious issue is avoiding aesthetic issues like drooping plants or large brown patches of grass. However, you also want to make sure there aren’t any holes or weak earth that could present a tripping hazard.
Safety and Quality
When you’ve committed to a fall control regimen, there are a few other things you need to keep in mind. Most importantly, you want to focus on using quality ingredients. Failing to have a quality option can mean reduced effects and potential environmental harm. It’s also important to make sure that you use a product that’s child and pet-safe. You can be responsible and try to keep them away from any affected areas, but it’s best to eliminate the risk completely.
