You have pests invading your lawn, and they are starting to do real damage. You need to do something about it before the damage gets any worse. You may be thinking that you can run down to the DIY store and get pesticides to handle the job yourself. That is actually a hazardous thing to do.
Even the diluted DIY pesticides contain chemicals that can endanger your health as well as that of your kids and pets. They are also dangerous for the environment if not applied or disposed of properly. For these and many other reasons, herbicides and pesticides are best left to the professional lawn care specialists.
How can you find a reputable lawn care specialist who can apply pesticides safely?
Ask Your Neighbor
A great way to find a professional lawn care specialist is to ask the neighbors, especially the ones who have a great looking lawn. They can relate their experiences with different companies and give you the one that can handle your pest problem. Of course, you can ask your family and friends as well. Someone will know of a company that offers lawn spraying services.
It is best to take a look at more than one company. That way, you can see what kind of service they offer and get an estimate on the work for comparison.
Select A Specialist
You likely have one specific pest attacking your lawn. You don’t want to spray a wide range of chemicals on your lawn, hoping to kill that single pest. That is why bringing in a professional lawn care specialist who knows what chemicals will do the job is critical. You want to minimize the amount of insecticide put on your lawn, so your family and pets remain safe and healthy.
Get a List of Chemicals
Before you let any professional lawn care team spray your yard for pests, always get a list of the chemicals they are going to use. Then, make sure the chemicals do what the company says they will do.
Some disreputable companies will use a strong, generic spray which will kill a wide range of pests. But, the generic spray adds unneeded chemicals to your lawn, endangering your kids and pets. A reputable company will be happy to give you a complete list of what chemicals they use and what each one does. They will be able to give you information on any potential dangers involved with applying the chemicals and what they will be doing to mitigate those issues should they occur.
