Drainage Solutions, Top Surface Treatments Help to Eradicate Pests

A wet spring combined with rising temperatures create a rich environment for outdoor pests. Routine application of our top surface treatment at optimal times can significantly reduce your family’s exposure to fleas, ticks, mosquitoes and other pests. Drainage improvements can also help to eliminate mosquito breeding areas by tackling the source of the problem – standing water. Sources of standing water can include poor yard layout, soil depressions, tree stumps and excessive lawn debris. Aquascapes and water features such as fountains, bird baths, ornamental and swimming pools, and spas offer peaceful, relaxing additions to your outdoor living oasis without introducing risk. The key is to properly clean, treat, maintain and aerate those features. If drainage issues and outdoor pests are of concern to you, please contact us today for a consultation.
