Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to apply anything between lawn applications?
No. Our program includes everything for a green, healthy lawn. Additional products could cause harm.
What are all of these blue spots in my yard?
The blue dye is used to show the technician where he has spot treated for weeds. These spots will go away after the next rain or with irrigation period.
Can you control CHINCH BUGS?
Yes, we can. We provide a once per year chinch bug application in addition to our lawn program for St. Augustine grass.
How long should we wait before allowing children or pets to go on the grass areas after it is sprayed?
The grass should be dry before letting children or pets get back on it. In the full hot sun, it should dry in 30 minutes. On cloudy days, it could take as long as 2 hours.
I am seeing brown spots in my yard, what should I do?
There are many things that can cause brown spots; disease, insects and drought. Call our office for more information.
What if I have a problem with my lawn between services?
Call our office with any questions you may have or to schedule a service call.
How long should I wait before I mow my lawn after an application?
We recommend waiting 24 hours after the application before mowing your lawn.
I’m seeing evidence of moles. Do you have anything to control them?
No. We suggest contacting your local garden center for some kind of bait.
Do I have to move all my furniture prior to receiving an interior flea/tick treatment?
Are the products you use safe for use around children and pets?
Yes. All of the products that we use for lawn, shrubs, and household pest control are safe for children and pets.
How long before we see results with the weed control?
After two weeks, you should see results; if you still see weeds, call us for a free follow up.
Why don’t I see blue spots in my yard?
During certain times of the year we do a blanket weed control application, so spot treatment is not necessary.
Is there any discount on your services?
Yes. We offer a 10% discount on yearly prepaid services that are paid with a check. A 5% discount is offered for yearly prepaid services that are paid with credit or debit card.
Does your program include fire ant control?
Yes, if you see fire ants, call our office for a free service call.
How often should I water my lawn?
Many areas are on water restrictions. Contact your water company for guidelines.
Right after you treated my lawn, it started to rain. Will this wash away the application?
No. Many of the products we use, need to be watered in and others are not affected by the rain. If you are concerned, call our office and we can schedule a two-week follow up.
I am seeing weeds in my plant beds. Do you have a service for this?
No. We do not offer weed control for plant beds. This would be the responsibility of the homeowner or landscaper.
I am seeing weeds in my rocks, driveway, or sidewalk. Do you treat for this?
No. We do not offer weed control for rocks or driveways/sidewalks. Our weed control products are mixed with a staining material so we do not treat these surfaces to avoid staining and damaging them.
I am having problems with snakes, raccoons, armadillos, or other wildlife. Can you help?
No. We recommend contacting animal control.
I’m seeing lizards/frogs. Do you have anything to control them?
No. Our treatments do not target lizards or frogs.
