After spending hours digging dandelions out of your grass and perfecting your flowerbeds, it can be frustrating to deal with illusive issues created by pest infestations. Unfortunately, missing the signs of early problems could cause thousands of dollars worth of damage or put your family in danger. Here are two types of pests that can make your outdoor space less enjoyable, and how you might be able to tip the scales in your favor:

Nothing can ruin a leisurely Sunday afternoon on your front porch quite like a spider dangling in your face. Unfortunately, if you have a problem with spiders, they can do more than give you the heebie-geebies.

Although it might seem impossible to target traveling pests like spiders, pest control professionals, like U.S. Pest Control, might be able to treat your yard with a residual insecticide.

Residual insecticides are perfect for areas like swing sets, patios, and porches—where people, and spiders, might hang out.
Recognizing the signs of pest infestations and acting early might help you to protect your garden, enjoy your yard, and fend off unplanned expenses.Share
