How You Benefit When You Hire a NY Lawn Care Company to Apply Mosquito & Tick Control

June 3, 2019 |

Summer is almost here, and that means you’ll be hosting backyard BBQ’s, graduation parties and other celebrations with your family and friends.

Plus, the kids will be home for the summer and love to play in the backyard. You want them to be safe from mosquitoes and ticks. You need your local lawn care company to apply pest controls to keep these harmful insects off your property.

Why You Need a Pro for Mosquito and Tick Controls

During the summer, you want to enjoy your backyard with your family and friends. If you have children and pets, you don’t want them to breathe in toxic products.

So, you need to hire a lawn care and landscaping company to apply mosquito and tick controls on your NJ or NY perimeter of your home.

Why a pro and not yourself?

Because you want mosquito and tick controls appropriately applied to your property. You don’t want to overspray or spray these insect controls in places where these two pests don’t even live.

4 Benefits You Receive When You Hire Your Local Lawn Care Company to Apply Mosquito & Tick Controls

You don’t want to hire anyone who just shows up to your house with a truck to spray your lawn with insect controls.

Instead, you want a lawn care company that has certified and trained applicators to apply mosquito and tick controls correctly.

Here are the four benefits you receive when you hire your Rockland County, NY landscape company to apply perimeter pest control for mosquitoes and ticks.

  1. You don’t have to buy different types of tick and mosquito controls to experiment with on your property. Your Rockland County lawn care company already has professional-grade mosquito and tick controls that work.
  2. Your Bergen County lawn care technician will apply tick and mosquito controls safely and efficiently. Your lawn care company cares about the health and well-being of your children and pets.

So, your lawn care applicator will target typical mosquito and tick habitats on your property as well as use the least amount of product possible to achieve the best results.

Did you have a lot of ponding on your Bergen County or Rockland County yard last summer? Then you may benefit from our yard drainage solutions.

  1. You have choices when you hire a Bergen County, NJ lawn care company to apply mosquito and tick controls. You can have a one-time application of mosquito control, for example, to keep these pests away during a special event that you’re hosting in your NJ backyard.

Conversely, you can sign up for monthly mosquito control from April through September.

Tip: No one can guarantee to keep your property completely free from mosquitoes and ticks. These insects still fly into your property from other backyards. Plus, deer, mice, raccoons, birds and other critters bring ticks onto your property.

But you’ll have significantly smaller populations of mosquitoes and ticks in your yard when you have regular applications of perimeter pest control. These controls kill pests from the egg through adulthood stages.

  1. Your lawn care technician knows how to apply tick and mosquito controls in the safest possible way. Your lawn care pro cares deeply about the environment, so he or she will take steps to ensure that these controls don’t cause harm.

For example, your applicator will keep his back to your property line, so the control only goes to the area where ticks and mosquitoes live. He’ll work with the wind while spraying or he’ll reschedule with you if your appointment falls on a windy day.

Did you know that we’ll open your irrigation system now even if you don’t use it until July?

Other Ways to Keep Mosquitoes and Ticks from Taking Up Residence on Your New York or New Jersey Property

There are numerous ways for you to keep mosquitoes and ticks from making their homes on your property. Here are the basics:

  1. Make sure you have no standing water anywhere—including in water bottle caps—on your property. Female mosquitoes will lay their eggs in water that’s not moving—even in the smallest containers.
  2. Make sure you keep your pond and pool filters on to prevent water from stagnating. Also, keep cleaning out those filters, so they work to their fullest capacity.
  3. If you have tires, a kiddie pool or tarp over your boat, you want to dump any water that accumulates in them.

  1. Clean up all leaf litter and trim around fences, walls, and anywhere there’s high grass.
  2. Use wood chips to separate your property from any woodland that borders your backyard.
  3. Remember, ticks and mosquitoes like moist, dark areas. So, if there’s sunlight in your backyard, you won’t find these pests living there.
