Tennessee residents love outdoor activities, summer picnics and BBQ’s in the yard. Plus, opening our home to fresh, warm breezes are evidence of perfect summer weather. However, you need to take precautions, otherwise pesky insects will put a damper on your fun.
Pest protection services will make sure no ants, flies, mosquitoes, or any other insect or arachnid ruins all your summer activities. Here is how to pest-proof your backyard this summer.
Trees & Shrubs
- Inspect your trees and shrubs for signs of pest infestation, and physically remove them whenever it is possible.
- Insects like Japanese beetles and bagworm are more common in the summer.
- Apply a foliar spray to protect your plants from insects and disease with fertilization, when required.
- Mow your lawn and weed your bed gardens to reduce spots for critters to hide and make their new home.
- Apply a liquid fertilizer, micro-nutrients, and spot treatments for broadleaf weed control.
- Use insecticides specially designed to target common summer pests such as ants, chinch bugs, armyworms, sod webworms, and white grubs.
Besides the above actions, professionals in the field encourage homeowners to adopt good practices concerning soil management, turfgrass selection, exclusions through sanitation and prevention, and appropriate cultural practices. Hire a professional outdoor pest control company for better results.
