Mosquito & Insect Barrier
Using a combination of products to control live mosquitoes, mosquito eggs, and a garlic-based repellent that lasts approximately 25 days, Nature’s Select can reduce populations by 90%. This program is a great way to protect your children, pets, and all those you love from these biting pests, without harsh chemicals and harming most beneficial insects! Four applications from May through September will help you take back control of your recreational areas.
Moles are small, thick-bodied mammals that live underground. Moles eat mainly grubs, worms, and insects. It is their digging and tunneling in search of food that ruins lawns and gardens. The control of moles is a challenge as they are a protected species, and a permit from the state must be obtained prior to their removal. An indirect control procedure is to apply a soil insecticide to reduce the grub population, in turn causing the mole to look for food elsewhere.
Voles are small mice-like mammals that live in field and shrub habitats. Voles can cause damage by eating flower bulbs, girdling the stems of woody plants, and gnawing roots. Left unchecked, voles can cause major damage to ornamental landscapes. The most effective control for voles is to locate their runways and apply a baited rodenticide. Several applications may be necessary to achieve control.
The Japanese Beetle is a highly destructive plant pest. With proper IPM (Integrative Pest Management) spraying, these pests can be controlled. The spraying will not eliminate the insects, but rather reduce the level of damage to the affected plants. It is important to control this pest before it causes major plant damage, or possibly destroys your shrubs and plants.
Geese can be very destructive to lawns, particularly around lakes and ponds. If you are having this problem, Nature’s Select can apply a goose repellant. It is very effective, and harmless to the geese. Contact Us today for further information!
