The Fall season brings beautiful blooms, lush green lawn and colorful foliage to your perfectly manicured yard. However, bugs and critters can wreak havoc on your home’s curb appeal and overall beauty. When the weather starts to turn cold, make sure your lawn, shrubs, and bushes are not safe havens for creepy crawling insects and rodents by heeding these fall pest control tips:
Cooler weather can bring with it a multitude of insects and rodents to your yard. Your Connecticut home needs to be protected. Begin attacking the problem by identifying the types of pests that are chewing away at your blooming plants and perfectly trimmed bushes. A variety of lawn grubs can impede the work you plan to do, such as aeration and re-seeding.
Whether you have grubs of June bugs, Japanese beetles or ants infesting your lawn, it’s important to act fast. Once you’ve identified the pests, the best course of action is to contact experts who can manage these pests while also providing the nourishment your lawn needs. Colonel Landscaping offers a variety of services to nip the problem in the bud before pests impede your winterizing efforts.
It’s natural for rodents and pests to want to find warmth in your lush green grass and shrubs. However, routine lawn clean up can help minimize their duration of stay. Remove piles of wet leaves or tree branches immediately so pests cannot find a warm place to nestle in the fall and winter. In addition, those wet piles of leaves can lead to bacteria or disease forming on your green grass.
Continue mowing during the Fall season, too. When your grass is shorter, pests have a harder time lingering around. It’s also important to take the necessary steps to enrich your lawn with aeration and re-seeding.
Premium lawn care and pest control require time and dedication that you may not have during the busy fall season. Leave it to the experts at Colonel Landscaping to help minimize your risk of pests and critters damaging your lawn’s lush look. Contact us today at (860) 739-0008.
