Weed and pest infestation are, unfortunately, a part of life for the average homeowner. Often, a simple mowing of the lawn or an application of an over-the-counter pesticide will take care of the problem.
But what should you do if you have a larger infestation issue – be it weeds or bugs? In many instances, hiring a professional pesticide provider who is licensed is the smart – and safe – choice.
In this issue, we’ll talk about why.
Sure, you may save a few bucks by picking up a few over-the-counter pesticides at your local store, but if they don’t take care of your problem, you may have to make return trips to buy more product.
Plus, a professional will most likely use less product than a DIY-er because they know how to use it efficiently.
If you choose to take on the project yourself, you may have to go over your yard several times. A professional, however, will most likely be able to find the source of your infestation quickly – eliminating future infestations.
A misuse of pesticides can result in serious negative health consequences. Children are especially vulnerable because their immune systems are still in the developmental stage and they are in much more contact with grass than adults.
A professional will know exactly how much of the pesticide to use, and will be able to advise you and your family of harmful possibilities.
Most professional pesticide providers will be able to develop a treatment plan for your lawn that will address why the infestation exists and what can be done to eliminate it altogether. Also, timely maintenance schedules can be put in place to keep infestations under control.
Whether you’re having a problem with weeds or bugs, lawn infestations can get out of hand in a hurry.
