Kills and Controls Ants:
Ants are common pests throughout the world. They are a nuisance and construct mounds in the lawn. Ants may enter your house foraging for food or seeking shelter. Any treatment plan should include killing the entire colony. Spraying ants with a typical ant spray, will only kill a few at best. This approach usually fails because the ants are only a small portion of the colony.
Typically, there will be thousands of ants including one or more queens hidden. Eliminating queens and other colony members within nests is often the key to effective ant control. A granule product should yield best results.
Kills and Controls Fleas and Ticks:
Adult fleas are no larger than 1/8 inch long. Fleas and ticks commonly prefer to feed on hairy animals such as dogs, cats, rabbits, squirrels, rats, mice and other wild animals. They are reddish-brown, wingless insects that are laterally compressed, so they look as if they are walking on edge.
Fleas and ticks pose potential harm to your family and pets. They hide in your lawn and can cause problems such as skin irritation and spreading disease. Control fleas and ticks in your lawn by avoiding overwatering your lawn, removing debris and creating a insect granule barrier around your home.
Kills and Controls Spiders:
Spiders can be found throughout the country. They will creep from your lawn to your house. Some spiders like moisture while others like dry, warm areas such as subfloor air vents, upper corners of rooms and attics. Create a barrier around your home to keep spiders under control.
Kills and Controls Chinch Bugs:
Chinch bugs are about one fifth of an inch long and it takes chinch bugs about four to six weeks to mature. They start out yellow, then soon turn red as they grow. Chinch bugs thrive in southern states during hot dry weather, primarily May through October. Chinch bugs feed on many lawn grasses, especially St. Augustine grass and Zoysia grass.
