Keeping your lawn and landscaping in great condition takes strategy and consistency in many different areas. One of the major areas is lawn pest control which targets insects and spiders that can threaten the well-being of your property and home.

Lawn pests create destruction and damage to your grass and soil. There are a variety of pests that plague the areas of Spokane, Spokane Valley, and Liberty Lake that need to be treated for on a regular basis in order to maintain a healthy, green lawn.

Most insects are active during the growing season. Warmer weather from May through October sees an influx of pests in lawns and landscaping.

Prevention of Infestation is Key

Maintaining routine pest control and spider barriers before an infestation occurs is practical. Once pests start to invade your lawn, getting rid of them is a lot harder than keeping them off in the first place. The same goes for spiders making homes in your landscaping, or worse, in your home.

At Sure Green Lawn & Tree Service, we offer preventative insect treatments and spider barriers throughout the warm seasons. Insect treatments are maintained frequently throughout this time, while our spider barrier program contains four treatments spaced out over 6-8 week increments. Treating your lawn is important if you want to keep pests out of your yard.

Common Spiders & Their Bites

In Spokane and the surrounding communities, venomous spiders such as the black widow and brown recluse are commonly found in lawns and landscaping beds. At Sure Green Lawn & Tree Service, we provide a spider barrier service that protects your home from being infested with these troublesome pests that can cause health issues for both humans and pets.

Both the black widow and brown recluse can inject venom with just a single bite that can lead to a range of symptoms, such as

  • Headaches
  • Fevers
  • Chills
  • Nausea
  • Joint pain
  • Weakness
  • In severe cases, paralysis, comas, seizures, and death

If one of these spiders bites you, reach out for medical assistance immediately. Keep spiders away from your home or business by utilizing ongoing annual services!

Common Pests and their Paths of Destruction

The most common pests in the area consist of a variety of worms, grubs, and chinch bugs. All of them attack different parts of the lawn, including the grass blades and roots. Discovering existing damage on your property will help determine which pests you are having issues with on your turf.

Grubs tend to feed on grassroots, whereas chinch bugs, cutworms, caterpillars, and sod webworms prefer your grass blades. Some of these pests, such as the chinch bug, inject poison into your lawn, which results in dead patches of grass throughout your property.

Avoid the damage caused by common lawn pests and invest in your lawn! Routine pest control treatments will keep your yard protected and prevent further damage.
