There are several concepts that are important for lawn and yard care during the dead of the Utah summer, and one that cannot be ignored is the prevention of risks like pests or nutrient deficiencies that can be risky during the hottest parts of the year. Some great examples here include basic forms of pest spraying and attentiveness to any iron deficiency issues in your plants or trees.
At Logan Extermination, we’re happy to offer a variety of services to assist our Logan clients in these areas, including tree spraying and insecticide treatments. Here are a few of the key risks we help clients avoid on their properties during the hottest parts of the year.
Mosquito Turf Spraying
While some people think of mosquitoes only as annoying pests that bite and cause itchy bumps, they can also be a source of health risks. Mosquitoes can carry diseases like Zika, West Nile Virus, and other illnesses that you don’t want spreading on your property. That’s why we recommend our Logan clients use our mosquito turf spraying services to keep their yards free of these pests.
This is especially important if you have kids or pets that play out in the yard and could be at risk of mosquito bites.
Moth Turf Spraying
Another insect you may not think of as a risk is the moth. While they may not bite, moths can be an annoying presence in your yard and can also cause damage to trees and plants if left unchecked.
That’s why Logan Extermination offers our moth turf spraying services to keep these pests away from your property. We use only the safest products and methods to ensure that your yard remains pest-free while also being safe for children and animals.
Iron Deficiency Treatment
Finally, iron deficiency for both trees and other plants is another risk to watch out for during the summer months. If left untreated, iron deficiency can cause stunted growth or even death for your trees and plants.
Generally speaking, there are three ways to provide iron to plants that need it:
- Foliar: The technical term for spraying, which is a method of drenching your plants with an iron-rich solution
- Soil: Adding iron directly to the soil in your yard, either through chemical fertilizers or natural organic materials like compost
- Injection: For certain trees, the only way to provide iron is through a special needle injection process that delivers iron directly into the trunk of the tree.
By ensuring your plants have adequate iron, you can avoid the risks of stunted growth or death during the summer months.
At Logan Extermination, we strive to help our clients protect their Logan properties from pests and risks like iron deficiency. If you’re looking for lawn and yard care services to help keep your property safe, contact us today!
