Lawn Aeration in New Orleans
Living in the South means being outdoors as much as possible. Our backyards are extensions of our homes and we want them to look their best. Southern backyards are perfect for celebrating weddings, graduations, and holidays.
Unfortunately, all that foot traffic can eventually take its toll and have significant consequences for your grass. The soil in our yard becomes compacted over time from frequent use and thatch buildup. When this happens, it prevents water, air, and nutrients from getting to the roots of your grass. This will slowly weaken your grass, leaving your yard vulnerable to:
- Lawn Diseases
Lawn aeration is a recommended lawn care tool for soil compaction. It works by pulling tiny plugs of soil from your yard to allow for water and nutrients to flow back to your plants’ roots. Our professional lawn aeration and dethatching services can relieve the stresses caused by compacted soil and get your yard looking good again quickly.
Pest Control in New Orleans
The only downside to living in the South in the summer are the pests. There is no shortage of pests in New Orleans and it doesn’t take much to ruin your outdoor gatherings. We provide pest control services that assist in reducing bugs, insects, and parasites in outdoor living areas.
After you sign up for our pest control program, a trained technician will carefully evaluate your property in order to identify the source of the pest problem. TruGreen identifies pest hotspots in tall grass, wetlands, and wooded perimeters in order to develop an effective, customized treatment plan that not only eliminates adults but also nests, eggs, and hatchlings so the next generation of bugs is not allowed to grow.
Our exterminators in New Orleans treat:
- Fire ants
- Fleas & Ticks
Mosquito Control in New Orleans
Mosquitoes are a unique pest that deserves a category all their own. Mosquitoes are fierce in New Orleans due to our many wetlands and swamps. Mosquitoes thrive in moist environments and need standing water to lay their eggs. Mosquito populations can be managed by eliminating standing water but sometimes there are just too many of them.
Mosquitoes are vectors for a multitude of diseases, posing a serious threat to anyone spending time outside after dusk. A single mosquito bite can transmit diseases such as:
- West Nile Virus
- Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE)
- Yellow Fever
At TruGreen MidSouth we offer our New Orleans customers a customizable monthly mosquito control program that significantly reduces the number of mosquitoes on your property. Our mosquito control program begins with a thorough property inspection by one of our experienced technicians.
Areas we target for mosquito treatment include:
- Tall grass
- Standing water
- Mulch beds
