Few things in life are as relaxing and fulfilling as laying out on your yard on a beautiful sunny day here in North Carolina. However, that joy will be short-lived if you are being joined by yard pests such as fire ants, fleas and ticks, and you will soon be scurrying indoors instead to enjoy your yard from afar. Fortunately, State Pest Control can help your yard become pest-free and allow you to return to enjoying it up close.
Fire ants, which originated in Brazil, have become more of a nuisance in North Carolina the past several years and is especially problematic in the southeastern three-quarters of the state. And these pests are not just a nuisance; they can be quite dangerous as they can team up on an individual, and a single red ant can sting multiple times. Their impact on small children and pets can be particularly significant, and a small percentage of people suffer allergic reactions to these stings. Their mounds, which can reach as high as 2 feet high, can damage lawnmowers as well.
State offers two programs to keep fire ants out of your yard.
We can provide an annual liquid application with spot treatments on any existing mounds that you may already have on your property. The other option is having us take advantage of the latest advances in bait technology and engage in a quarterly bait program. Regardless of the method used, we can take care
of your entire yard, and you will see results within 24-48 hours instead of the weeks that it can take with other methods.
Fleas and Ticks
These pests are a bit more difficult than fire ants are to see, but they can cause quite a bit of a nuisance despite their small size, mostly related to when they decide to use you and your loved ones as dinner. What results can range from skin irritations to contracting diseases, and these can spread to both humans as well as pets like cats and dogs who spend time in your yard. It is also important to note that fleas and ticks can live year-round in many parts of North Carolina due to our relatively mild winters.
State can provide a variety of yard treatments to help control these pests as well as provide suggestions on what you else you can do as a homeowner to reduce their impact on your lives.
