Pest Control in Fort Worth, TX
Many homeowners use landscaping to create beautiful and comfortable outdoor living spaces. Fire pits, fancy outdoor kitchens and grills, and plush outdoor furniture make most outdoor living spaces as comfortable as the living rooms inside the homes. The biggest complaint for enjoying the well-manicured outdoor living and recreation areas is common pests such as fleas, mosquitoes and fire ants. Other typical complaints of landscaping pests are moles that tear up lawns and planting beds, and grub infestation that damage turf grasses.
PROTECTING CHILDREN AND PETS
Fleas are unwelcomed in any home, but they can be anywhere outdoors seeking to hitch a ride on a host and take up residence in-door as well. Once established, a flea infestation inside a home is difficult to eradicate. Preemptive outdoor flea control, using recognized flea treatments, can prevent interior infestation of homes. Children and pets are typically more sensitive to chemicals. Treatments to prevent or eradicate them should be applied by professionals.
Fire ants are a perpetual issue, especially for children and pets. They can cause excruciatingly painful stings. When a mound is touched, they pour out like lava from a volcano, going after any person or pet nearby. Prevention and eradication in yards can prevent a trip to the hospital or veterinarian.
PROTECTING FROM MOSQUITO-BORNE DISEASES
Most everyone has heard of West Nile Virus that is transmitted by mosquitoes. However, mosquitoes also can transmit other serious diseases to people and pets. Heartworm infections in dogs are spread through dog-to-dog mosquito bites. Mosquitoes are capable of spreading various encephalitis (brain swelling) types of disease as well as malaria and even Dengue fever. Even if it was known that mosquitoes in the yard did not carry any diseases, who would want to be bit by one? The bites swell and itch for days, ruining outdoor enjoyment. Good outdoor mosquito control can greatly reduce the potential of bites on both people and pets. Part of the treatment is applying chemical treatments, but another part is removing breeding habitats, which takes a trained expert to recognize.
PESTS THAT DAMAGE LANDSCAPE PLANTS AND GRASSES
Pest control involves more than just controlling critters that bite or sting. It also involves preventing or eradicating pests that physically tear up lawns and planting beds or cause expensive planted areas to die. Moles leave long tracks in grass, heap up mounds of dirt, leave holes in the ground, and otherwise wreak havoc in planting beds and lawns. Grubs can cause areas of the lawn to die. Proper mole control and grub treatment can prevent the need to repair damaged spots in the lawn and in planting beds.
