As your lawn and ornamental management specialists, we are responsible for the coordination of your integrated pest management (IPM) program outdoors. This implies that we will first see to the provision of adequate cultural controls (irrigation, nutrition, and cultivation) to strengthen your landscaping. Then we monitor the planted lawns, ornamentals, and trees for insect, arachnid, fungus, and disease related lawn and ornamental pest problems. We will only apply appropriate pesticides as needed.
Pesticides are varied in order to prevent pests from becoming genetically resistant to any one pesticide and to minimize the elimination of natural predator insects, predator arachnids, and animals. Fire ants are routinely baited and otherwise treated as needed to minimize fire ant populations. We apply a blend of selective herbicides to the areas of lawn that are threatened by heavy broadleaf weed infestation. With every invoice, we submit an irrigation spreadsheet summary of problems, their locations, repairs made, and parts used. Damage caused by our personnel is also reported and repaired at no charge.
