Not everyone understands that it's a good idea to have your lawn treated for pests by a pest control company. They may have always tried to take on pests with their little cans of pest control spray where they can kill the bugs they see. Or they may have had a pest control company come out in the past and do just the inside of the home and the first 6 feet or so from the home's exterior wall. However, the problem with just spraying in the house and a bit out from the wall is that some bugs can travel quite a distance before the pesticide they crawled over will kill them. You can learn more about why lawn treatment for pests is so important by reading the rest of this content.
Don't let the bugs crawl through the grass into your home
When you have treated your lawn, then all of the pests that would crawl through it on the way to your home, or anywhere else for that matter, will likely die before even reaching your home. When you spray along the exterior of your house, you are doing right. This will ensure that pests who travel to your home will hit that pesticide before they come inside and the best you can hope for in this situation is that it will go hide somewhere away from your belongings and die before you even see it. However, wouldn't it be better to have them die outside, never making it into your home? This is why treating the lawn is so important. Hopefully, they will die before they even reach the edge of the grass.
Don't let your dog become a travel shuttle
When you let your dog outside, they may go lie on the grass. Plenty of pests of many kinds can attach themselves to your dog's fur, or even embed their heads in your dog's skin in the case of ticks. Whatever crawls on your dog while they are in the yard enjoying sunshine can travel right into your home. The dog will be carrying them over the small section around the home's exterior if that was all you sprayed. This means healthy bugs will enter your home and they will likely remain healthy until they cross over one of the baseboards or other areas where you sprayed.
Don't let pests make it to your garden
You will have a lot of things to fend off when it comes to your garden. You will have to take steps to prevent wildlife such as rabbits from getting into it, and then you have to worry about all the different insects. At least when you have someone come out to treat the grass, you will know you are stopping a lot of the bugs in the yard from getting into your garden.Share
