Due to the mild winter, pests including fleas and ticks have been able to enjoy a fairly stable living condition in your lawn. Now that spring is here it is important to take the necessary steps to help protect your lawn from unwanted pest this season.
Pests, like fleas and ticks, are drawn to your lawn for many different reasons. From overgrown lawns to things like bird feeder spills can create for ideal conditions for pests. Pests can also commonly be found in your pet’s favorite outdoor hangout. That shady spot on your lawn that your pets love to lay in all day may be harboring pests that could catch a ride on your furry friends and into your home. Take extra special care on these areas, remove any standing water, and trim the lawn and overgrown shrubs in that area.
