As the temperatures start to rise in Charlotte, NC, so do the insect populations. One of the most common questions we get at Legacy Turf Care is “How often should I get pest control?” The answer to this question depends on a few different factors:
The Type of Pests You’re Dealing With
At Legacy Turf Care, we help you with grub and army worm prevention. These typically become active in the late spring and early summer. Because this is a seasonal pest, most homeowners only need pest control services a few times per year. However, if you’re dealing with other types of pests, such as ants, termites, or other bugs, you may need pest control more often.
Your Yard Maintenance Habits
Another factor that impacts how often you need pest control is your home and yard maintenance habits. For example, if your lawn is thick and healthy with good soil quality, it will be better at repelling pests than a neglected lawn.
If you’re prone to overwatering or over-fertilizing your lawn, you may be more likely to deal with pests than those who have a more balanced landscape. Overwatering can create the perfect environment for grubs and other insects to thrive, so it’s important to water your lawn only when necessary.
Size of Your Yard
Depending on the size of your lawn, you may need pest control services more often. A larger lawn will likely need more frequent treatments than a smaller one.
