Pest Control In the Spring
Diligent Pest Control in the Spring
Skilled pest control in spring by the pros at Petalon Landscape Management means fewer problems with infestations in the summer and fall.
We can assist you in keeping a handle on pests such as moles, gophers, ants, grasshoppers, rats, aphids and beetles. Petalon Landscape Management employs a green philosophy with every customer, preferring to employ organic methods of pest control and avoiding the use of harmful chemicals and pesticides.
Exposing landscapes to toxins harms the earth and humans, and does little to address the causes of infestations. In fact, broad applications of pesticides indiscriminately kill insects, even desirable ones, and can make matters worse.
We believe diligently identifying and addressing infestations early in the growing season pays dividends later in the year and can actually save your company money in the long run.
Here is what Petalon experts look for each spring in order to curb the proliferation of pests on your property:
- Tunneling – burrowing rodents and other animals are very destructive. We have proven methods to rid your grounds of these pests.
- Standing water – mosquitoes and other flying pests thrive when water is present. We check to make sure drainage is adequate after rains and irrigation.
- Bark damage – the recent drought increased the numbers of wood-boring insects that eat the inner bark of trees and shrubs.
- Dead plant material – many animals and insects use dead plants for food or as a warm place to live. Cleaning up leaves, compost, old mulch and other debris left over from winter reduces the opportunity for rats, mice, or other pests to take up residence on your property.
