Lawn care may not be top-of-mind during the winter months, even in sunny Florida. Year-round lawn maintenance, however, is the key to keeping your lawn healthy and beautiful. From planting the right grass seed to using professional lawn pest control services, follow these tips from McCall Service to keep pests from settling in.

Effective Lawn Care

Taking care of your yard ensures its beauty, but regular lawn maintenance provides an additional benefit: fewer pests on your property. These routine tasks help make your yard less attractive to bugs:

  • Using native grass seed
  • Seeding sparse areas in spring and autumn
  • Regularly sharpening lawnmower blades
  • Not mowing more than a third of your lawn’s height
  • Aerating yearly to distribute nutrients from thatch
  • Stopping watering if you see runoff
  • Watering your lawn when wilted, or if footprints remain for more than 30 minutes

These steps might not fully deter pests from making your lawn their home, but a well-maintained yard is less appealing as a breeding ground for many species.

Professional Lawn Pest Control

You may find that pests have overrun your lawn, despite your best efforts. Or maybe you want an extra dose of prevention to ensure that infestations don’t spread to your home. Scheduling treatments before problems truly take hold can make it easier to banish pests from your lawn.

If your yard has been neglected for too long, even pests may not want to live there. That might sound like good news, but a badly run-down lawn may force some pests to hunt for food indoors. Florida lawn and pest control specialists can bring your yard back to life while making your property less hospitable to bugs, grubs, and other pests.

Let the Experts Keep Pests Away

Don’t let proper lawn maintenance fall by the wayside this winter. Using the right methods to mow, water, seed, and aerate your grass helps boost your curb appeal. Combined with professional lawn pest control, it keeps pests off your lawn and away from your home. Contact McCall, serving communities in Florida, to schedule an appointment.
