Lawn Care FAQ
How soon after a treatment can we mow the lawn?
It is best to wait 24 hours after our treatments before mowing. The primary reason is to allow our weed control materials to be absorbed and translocated throughout the weed plant before a mower cuts off the treated weed leaf.
Should I water the lawn after your treatment?
We leave watering instructions at your door after every treatment. In most cases, you should wait at least 2 hours after a treatment before watering. This is primarily to allow weed control materials to be absorbed by the weed leaves and not washed off. After 2 hours, it is always beneficial to water in the fertilizer to get it down to the root systems. Even without watering, the fertilizer will work its way into the soil with help from natural dew moisture and any rainfall.
Why can’t I wait longer between mowings, reducing time spent on lawn care?
It may come as a surprise that mowing the lawn is about more than just keeping your lawn’s height under control. If done properly, mowing stimulates the grass of your lawn to lushness and better health, just as pinching a garden plant can improve its appearance. Proper mowing technique is an important aspect of overall lawn care.
Is there a right and a wrong time for lawnmowing?
Yes. Lawnmowing should not be done when the grass is wet (under which conditions disease can be introduced, plus you incur the risk of slipping and getting injured). Also, lawnmowing in the evening puts less stress on the lawn than lawnmowing when the sun is pounding down in the afternoon.
Are bug lights effective against Mosquito’s?
Ultraviolet bug lights, or ‘zappers’ are relatively ineffective against mosquitoes, who seek light colors, heat and carbon dioxide, none or which is emitted by zappers. In addition, zappers kill indiscriminately, eliminating insects that are beneficial, as well as those who may feed on mosquitoes.
How soon after an application can I enter the sprayed area?
It’s safe to reenter a treated area as soon as the treatment is completed.
Can mosquitoes cause and spread disease?
Yes. Mosquitoes are the most formidable transmitters of disease in the animal kingdom. Several of the most severe diseases (human and other) spread by mosquitoes include malaria, encephalitis, yellow fever, dog heartworm, human elephantiasis, and West Nile virus.
Do mosquitoes transmit AIDS?
No. The AIDS virus cannot survive or multiply in mosquitoes. It is digested along with the contents of the blood meal.
