  • Lawn Pests

    • How do I wind up with lawn pests?

      A lot of lawn pests are attracted to the moisture and lush plant life of well-groomed lawns. Many lawn pests also like to feed on vegetable gardens or landscaping plants.

That's part of the reason lawn pests are so tough to deal with.

      Generally speaking, lawn pests are more dangerous to your landscaping than to your pets or you.

However, the only time you could potentially face any danger from these pests is if they attract certain venomous spiders like black widows.

    • Can I get rid of lawn pests on my own?

      Getting rid of lawn pests on your own is not an easy feat. This is partly due to the inefficacy of lawn pest control solutions you can purchase at the store.

This is why it's important to call professional lawn pest control services.
