In Rhode Island, summer means backyard cookouts, graduation parties, weddings, and any other chance to celebrate outdoors and show off your beautiful lawn with friends and family. Regardless of the occasion, it always seems that nature’s most annoying party crashers show up and ruin the good vibes.
Sure, mosquitoes are annoying, but there are serious health reasons for controlling mosquitoes in your yard; they can carry deadly diseases such as Zika, West Nile Virus, and Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE).
A female mosquito can deposit up to 200 eggs at a time in a very small amount of water. In less than two weeks, you could have an entirely new generation of mosquitos buzzing around your yard. Objects in your yard that could be turned into mosquito nurseries include:
At 4everGreen we take mosquito control very seriously. We maintain effective mosquito control with three annual visits (every 50-60 days). We treat the perimeter of your home, trees, shrubs, and your lawn to ensure that all mosquitos, in every stage, are eliminated and you and your family are protected.
Both fleas and ticks can be a real problem for Rhode Island homeowners. These tiny insects live in the shady areas of your yard such as shaded areas, bushes, under porches, and decks.
Fleas and ticks won’t usually bother you in your yard but if you have a cat or dog, they could be a tasty target. After your furry friend plays around in your yard, they could be a Trojan Horse, letting fleas and ticks into your home unnoticed.
Once fleas and ticks gain entry to your home it can be extremely difficult to get rid of them. One reason is that they are so small it’s hard to see them. Another reason is they can breed very fast and you could be dealing with a full-scale infestation in just a few weeks.
Fleas and ticks can cause rashes on humans but they can also carry diseases that can be transmitted to both pets and humans.
