  • Mosquitos! And More Reasons to Consider Adding Insect Control to Your Annual Landscaping Care Plan

After a frigid winter, we all look forward to the pleasant and warmer springtime. And why not?  Spring is when the earth breathes life into tiny seedlings. We plan picnics, barbeque, get-togethers, or just enjoying quiet relaxation in our backyards. But the pleasant weather also brings with it some unwelcome guests, a.k.a., insects and bugs. Mosquitoes love buzzing around in the same backyard you might be lounging in, trying to find their next meal of the day—you! What can you do to drive out these pesky intruders? Let’s find out below.

How to Guard Against Mosquitoes, Ticks, Grubs, and other Pests in Your Yard

Rather than trying to eliminate insects and bugs, why not take steps to avoid an infestation in the first place? Here’s how:  

  • Eliminate stagnant water around your yard to prevent mosquitoes from spawning. Don’t let water collect in bird feeders, planters, and any such containers outside.
  • Ticks love long grass. To deter them from attaching to yours, mow your lawn frequently and ensure that it remains no higher than the recommended height, i.e., 2.5 to 3 inches.
  • Water your lawn deeply and as per the recommended schedule for deep root development. This deters grubs from eating the roots.
  • Free your lawn of debris like weeds, compost, and overgrown shrubs that can attract pests. 

What to do if your lawn has an insect or bug infestation

If you are troubled with an insect or bug infestation, or you want to use preventative measures to protect your lawn, the safest bet is to get help from lawn care experts who have experience in this field. 

However, if you decide to treat it yourself, you need to –

  • Choose your product wisely. Getting the wrong product filled with harmful chemicals can do more harm than good to your health and to your lawn. 
  • Wear the right gear to protect yourself during the application. 
  • Know how and when to apply this treatment to get the best results. 
  • Learn how to add this treatment to all the possible spots where bugs usually reside in your lawn and yard.
