Pest Control Help

Pest Control Help

LawnSafe provides pest control help as part of our grass maintenance services. Many of the more common pests can be addressed without the spraying of pesticides. Any pesticides applied should be done in a controlled manner and only when necessary. We are licensed to provide pest control help ensuring that your lawn can be free from devastating infestations.

As part of our pest control help we also provide information and guidance regarding the prevention and treatment of infestations. Mosquitoes are for instance, often present during the summer months. Pesticides are not applied in the control of mosquitoes unless absolutely necessary.

The most effective method to help with pest control and get rid of them is to find their breeding spots such as pools of water, swimming pools not properly maintained, and areas around the outside drains. Remove any water holders such as empty cans and bottles. The mosquitoes need just a teaspoon of water to hatch. Flower saucers and toys lying outside are good breeding grounds. It is essential to also ask the neighbours to remove any breeding sources.

Cutworms however, need to be addressed through special help for pest control, namely pesticides, developed specifically to attack them. We know how to identify various infestations and how to deal with each. If you are unsure of the type of pest that has taken hold simply contact us for pest control help. The cutworms are greyish to black caterpillars which hide in the soil during day time and start to feed at night. The cutworms will eventually become moths. In worm form they will feed on the grass leaves and may create havoc in the seedlings.

Slugs are night feeders and although we have special sprays to quickly help you get rid of them; simply picking them off one by one on a regular basis will also help to keep them under control. We will provide you with effective guidance on how to trap them without even having to walk around the garden looking for snails.
