As a proud homeowner, you’ll benefit from achieving and maintaining a beautiful lawn. However, don’t underestimate fire ants or any other landscape pest. They may be small, but they can easily wreak havoc on your lawn. You don’t have to worry because you’re not alone in your fight against pesky critters.
Although gophers are cute and funny on TV shows, they have all the right tools to destroy your well-manicured lawn and garden. Since they travel quickly and live comfortably underground, it won’t take them long to carry out their destructive plans for your yard. The good news is that Florida Pest Control Center will have you covered. As well-trained pest exterminators, we know how to get rid of gophers, and our removal methods are among the safest kind.
Ground squirrels live in colonies and are diurnal. Because these pests are quick on their feet, they are extremely good at taking what they want. Without proper intervention, they will continue to raid your garden and lawn. Keep in mind that sprinklers and irrigation lines are just as vulnerable as food-bearing trees and ornamental plants. Also, beware that ground squirrels can carry diseases that are harmful to humans and pets.
From sunup to sundown, insects make their presence known in one way or another. Florida has more than 12,000 species of bugs, including yellow fever mosquitoes and brown recluse spiders. Although most insects serve a useful purpose, it’s going to be in your best interest to let a professional exterminator treat your lawn because he or she is trained to combat foraging and invasive pests.
Moles are a force to be reckoned with. They have a high metabolism and strong front paws that can do substantial damage to your favorite plants and lush lawn. No matter the time of the year, moles will dig surface and deep tunnels, but they are mostly active during the summer, spring and fall. When these pests burrow, they indirectly kill plants because their sharp claws break up and scrape away the soil that nourishes them. You can save your precious bed of dandelions and roses by letting a pest exterminator hunt down the mole that’s living on your property.
During the daytime and nighttime, voles will carry out their duties. They create burrows near the surface, and unlike moles, they don’t leave mounds behind. Unfortunately for you, voles pose a threat to your garden because their digging habit damages the root systems of plants, and they enjoy gnawing on shrubs and blades of grass. As a property owner in Florida, you may be targeted by voles. These pests tend to breed quickly, so an infestation can develop before you know it.
Landscape pests are opportunists. If they find your lawn attractive, they will invade it and mar its beauty within a short amount of time. Thankfully, eradicating landscape pests is an easy task for a professional pest exterminator. Contact Florida Pest Control Center if you have pest control needs.
