Generally, most insecticide applications applied to our lawns are geared toward limiting damage from turf-eating insects like grub worms, army worms, and sod webworms. However, protecting our families and our pets is becoming an ever-greater concern as diseases spread by flea and tick bites are becoming more and more prevalent.
Keeping your property properly maintained and clean will help to minimize flea and tick infestations. Properly EPA labelled and applied host-specific insecticides are also available, both in granular and liquid formulations. Whether you treat the problem yourself or hire a certified applicator to assist in this matter, know and follow the label directions.
Follow-up applications may be necessary. Your licensed lawn care operator can assist you with these services!!
