Hometown Lawn & Pest is eager to address the problems of all different types of bugs that can invade, eat, or take up residence within your lawn. Our perimeter pest control takes care of the crawlers and burrowers. However, there is another pest service that some people may not associate with a lawn care company. 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 particular application is none other than 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 are unable to produce. Hence, we label all of our lawn services accurately. 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 outside landscapes and surroundings. 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. Additionally, they reproduce in standing water. If you have leaky outdoor faucets, a bird bath, a small pond, or other outdoor features or possessions where water collects, mosquitoes will prefer your home to that of others. When we treat your outside with this application, we know to target these areas more thoroughly, though we will treat your entire yard. Our mosquito control applications are given during the warm months from May through August, when both outdoor lawn activity and mosquito activity is most prominent. We apply these every 21-25 days, depending on weather factors. The application will last a bit longer if the weather has been exceptionally dry. Tips for you to further help yourself 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 rainwater flow out. Fix any leaky faucets you have outdoors. If you have tarp on something in your backyard, 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.
