Preventing Bug Problems Before they Become a Bigger Problem
It may be hard to believe it, but spring is quickly approaching. Before we know it, the sun will be shining, the weather will be warmer and the grass will begin growing again. Along with wonderful weather, spring also brings the need for lawn care and for pest care. Once the temperatures begin to rise and the grass begins to grow, the bugs will start reproducing and causing problems in the yard, and possible even in the house. Gaining control over any potential bug problems before they multiply out of control is very important.
Now is the best time to schedule a lawn service or a bug guard control service appointment. A bug guard provider will quickly become busy and will need ample time to provide effective bug guard services. Bug guard prevention early on can also save the homeowner thousands of dollars. The price of prevention bug guard services will be a lot less than the price of having to remove or eradicate any pests or animals. In fact, the cost of pest control can range between $50 for animal removal to $1,200 for termite eradication and repair. Pests like cockroaches, beetles, spiders and rats start at about $250 for treatment.
Some homeowners may choose to live with bugs in a home, such a spiders and rodents to save money on yearly bug guard services. However, bug prevention should be just as important as lawn service. Bugs are not only unsanitary and disgusting; they can also cause problems to the yard and to the home. Certain bugs in the gardens or in the yard can prevent the grass from growing properly. It can cause dark, brown spots on the lawn. It can also prevent the growing of plants, such as flowers for visual look and fruits and vegetables for consumption. The bugs can also make their way into the home, quickly reproducing and becoming a huge problem. Bugs such as termites can quickly eat at the wooden structures of the home, making them unstable and having to be repaired.
Even animals such as moles, can dig holes and ruin the grass and the dirt structure of the yard. Generally, one acre of land can support 2-3 moles at a time. However, yards surrounded by large tracts of forested weedy areas may be the subject to continual mole invasions.
A health yard is one that is free of bugs and animals. It is a lawn that has control over the bugs and the grass is able to grow. A bug guard can be completed by a lawn fertilization service or a pest control company. A new survey by Harris Poll for the National Association of Landscape Professionals conducted among 2,034 U.S. adults (ages 18+), finds that three quarters of Americans (75%) feel that it is important to spend time outside in their yards. A yard with a good bug control system will promote yard usage, and enable families and homeowners to really enjoy their backyard spaces.
