Pests such as ants, roaches, fleas and mosquitoes are not pests you want in your home, but they are also not pests you want in your yard either. These pests come in from somewhere, and they may just be lying in wait, along with a number of other pests, for their chance to get into your home. To help prevent them from coming inside, it's important to get them before they even make their way in. Having your lawn treated for these and other pests can prevent this from happening. Read on for reasons why it's important to have your lawn treated.
Prevent Mosquito-Borne Illnesses
Mosquitoes can do more harm than just leaving you with itchy welts on your body. They actually carry diseases such as West Nile virus, Zika virus, malaria, and dengue. These are just a few of the diseases or illnesses they can spread to humans or pets. Mosquitoes can live and nest in your yard, laying hundreds of eggs at a time on the smallest amount of standing water such as in your birdbath or your child's toy. You can control their population by removing standing water around your home and yard and by having your lawn sprayed by a pest control specialist.
Prevent Flea Infestations
Fleas can be living in your lawn, waiting to attach themselves to your child's socks or your dog's legs. Fleas bite more than just pets; they can bite humans as well. They leave you with itchy welts on your body for both you and your pets in your home. If you have spotted one flea, chances are high that there are a number of others as well in your home. Prevent this from happening by having your lawn sprayed to kill off any that are in your yard. Keeping your lawn trimmed will also prevent these pests in the first place.
Prevent Incoming Pests
Spraying your yard will help prevent an infestation of a number of other pests from coming into your home. If they are in your yard, it won't be long before they are in your home as well. Having your lawn sprayed can prevent this from occurring. A pest control specialist can also take a look at your yard and check for rodents and other pest issues such as raccoons, chipmunks and flying insects such as bees, wasps, and hornets.
