When you think of autumn yard work, a fall lawn insecticide application probably doesn’t come to mind. It’s true that Atlanta’s excellent weather is a major factor for many people who choose to make this area their home. But our mild winters also mean that bugs tend to stick around all year long, too. Their activity may slow down during the coldest days of the winter months, but they never really go away.
For many of us, the heat is finally letting up and that means it’s time to start enjoying our back yards and patios. Maybe you’re ready to set up your fire pit or clean up the barbecue for some outdoor get-togethers. If you want to take full advantage of your beautiful yard and Atlanta’s mild winter weather, you need a fall lawn insecticide application.
Bugs Don’t Take Winters Off in Atlanta
While the birds are migrating south, the bugs are staying put. And as a matter of fact, many of them are probably working their way toward your warm, dry house right now. After all, it’s a cozy spot to spend the winter. But to get into your home, they have to cross your lawn, right? A fall lawn insecticide application will prevent most bugs from reaching their destination. Less bugs in the house is always a good thing.
Your Pets Will Thank You
If you have pets who enjoy your yard too, a fall lawn insecticide application will help protect them against fleas and ticks. While this may not be a major concern for suburban homeowners, keep in mind that all kinds of rodents carry fleas and ticks, and they can carry them right in to your yard at any time. The best course of action is to take every possible precaution to prevent the itching and diseases that these critters can cause for your beloved pets. Plus, Fido will be less likely to carry those bugs into your house.
Less Bugs Next Spring
Eliminating a large population of insects near your home now will likely mean that you will have less of them to deal with next spring.
