Hometown Lawn & Pest is eager to address the problems of all different kinds of pests that can invade, eat, or make themselves a home within your lawn. The perimeter pest control that we apply takes care of the crawlers and burrowers. However, there is another pest service that some people may not associate with a a business that does lawn care. This one deals with a pest that will not directly make your lawn suffer. Rather, it is more likely to present a problem for you, your family including any pets, especially dogs, when time is spent working or for recreation out on the lawn. This lawn care service is our distinguished mosquito control. Our business is responsible for the repelling of many mosquitoes from residential yards in the Brighton area, and keeping them away. Of course, the success of mosquito control is and always will be a relative concept. We do not advertise what we cannot deliver. Hence, we label all of our lawn services in a precise manner. That is why we do not advertise this as mosquito eradication; the emphasis is control. You will never completely eliminate every single mosquito from coming into your yard. There will always be a few that are resistant to repellants. But in using our mosquito control, you will absolutely notice a drastic difference in the amount you will encounter. Mosquitoes are going to vary in their prevalence from home to home, even within the same neighborhood. This is due to the variances of the homes and their respective landscapes themselves. Mosquitoes like to rest during the day in shaded areas, as well as fencing and bedded regions of your outside. So if you have an exceptionally large tree, or large plants in your yard, you are likely to have more mosquitoes. Also, they reproduce in standing water. If you have leaky outdoor faucets, a bird bath, a small pond, or other areas where water collects, mosquitoes will prefer your home to that of your neighbor's. When we treat your outside with this application, we know to target these areas more thoroughly, though we do treat the entire outside of your property. Our mosquito control applications are applied from the months of May through August, when both outdoor lawn activity and mosquito activity is most prominent. We treat your property every 21-25 days, which is partially dependent on the weather. The application will last a bit longer if the weather has been exceptionally dry. Things you can do on your own that will help with this problem is to keep your yard and roofs free of debris. Regularly change your water in any bird baths that you have. If you have an outside trash bin, drill small holes in the bottom of it to let any captured water flow out. Fix any leaky outdoor faucets. If you use tarp in your yard, regularly remove any water that may collect there. Hometown Lawn & Pest looks forward to building a positive relationship with Brighton. Ridding your properties of mosquitoes is a great way to start. We look forward to the opportunity.
