When you think about all the work that goes into maintaining your home and lawn, perimeter lawn pest control probably never even crosses your mind. It’s frequently overlooked, but when performed properly, it can make a huge difference in the workload required for keeping up with your grass, shrubs, trees, flowers, and vegetables. Keep reading to learn more about all the ways that perimeter lawn pest control can make your life easier.
The first fact you need to face is that there are already bugs on your property. But with a good pest control plan in place, that problem can be eliminated. So then, how do you prevent more pests from coming into your house and onto your property? Perimeter lawn pest control is the answer.
Having a pest control product applied around the perimeter of your property can keep a wide range of bugs out of your hair. You’ll notice fewer ants in the kitchen, fewer caterpillars eating the leaves off your trees, and reduced pests damaging your lawn. Tent worms, cockroaches, fire ants – the list of back yard nuisances could go on forever, but they won’t bug you anymore if you treat your perimeter.
And if you have a vegetable garden, boy, will you be glad you chose perimeter lawn pest control! Fewer nasty bugs chowing on your veggie plants – wouldn’t that be great? And what about the need to apply pest control products directly to your vegetable garden? You likely won’t have to do this anymore, at all. Organic gardening just got a whole lot easier.
If you’re worried about bees being driven away from your property, rest assured your fruits and vegetables will still be pollinated. Bees and other flying insects are capable of flying over the perimeter barrier. And with mass die-offs of bees happening in recent years, know your concern for the bees is a good thing. But the bees will continue to visit your property when your perimeter is treated.
In short, perimeter lawn pest control not only protects your lawn from pests, but everything else within the barrier. You will really notice a difference throughout your lawn, gardens, and home after having the perimeter treated. Think of it as your first line of defense against invasive bugs. It’s still a good idea to have your home treated for pests and inspected for termites, but the perimeter method will provide another layer of protection you can rely on.
