Protect Your Home

Though the mentality “protect this house” is generally something associated with a sports team playing on home field, it goes for your house in the fight against pests, too. Yes, it is important for a team to win while playing at home in sports, but you need to beat your own opponent – the bug team. Together, this team of bugs will do everything they can to infiltrate your home field and take it over.  Luckily, with Island Environmental Pest Control on your side, you have a powerful ally that can get the job done. And, because we use environmentally friendly products, you don’t have anything to worry about.

There is nothing worse than seeing a place of residence taken over by a nasty team of bugs. With Island Environmental Pest Control on your side, this will not be your reality.

Before you celebrate the fact that the hottest days of summer appear to be in the rearview mirror, it is important to remember that we still live in South Florida. Although everyone keeps waiting for the temperature to break, the weather still remains rainy, hot and humid. Obviously, these conditions aren’t the most comfortable for people, but there is more at stake. Unfortunately, this type of weather is a breeding ground for fungus, which can have a big impact on your lawn. Brown Patch Fungus and Take All Root Rot are common problems, and will target St. Augustine and Zoyisa lawns.

In order to fight back against the attacking fungi, it will take a team effort between you and Island Environmental Pest Control. You should be using fertilizers that contain potassium and minor elements, as opposed to nitrogen. It is also important to avoid watering your property too much, though between 2 a.m. and 8 a.m. is best, when dew is already present. Like human illnesses, lawn diseases can be transmitted, so avoid mowing these areas until the very end (and clean afterwards, of course). The good news in this situation is that fungus usually grows in the same area each year, so you’ll know where to keep an eye on. 

Island Environmental Pest Control wants to help you beat the fungus issue. Our fungicides are designed to keep the diseases from spreading. Proper nutrients and fungicides should be applied bi-weekly, until you reach a fungus free lawn. We will do our best to help you through this situation, but it is going to take effort on your part, as well. Contact us with any questions, and we will be glad to answer. As always, don’t forget to take advantage of our FREE Lawn Analysis!

Biting Pests

At Island Environmental Pest Control, we talk a lot about making a good first impression through a beautiful appearance. Whether it is inside your home, or out, pests can be a big disturbance, and throw off what you’ve worked so hard to put together.

That is not something that anybody has time for, and when you see this as your reality, you’ll want to call Island Environmental Pest Control. You can get a free once-a-year pest control analysis to see how we can best service you and your property.

While all kinds of pests can cause problems, there are a select few that can harm people, too. It is entirely possible that your front yard features fire ants, fleas, ticks, and other biting creatures. Island Environmental Pest Control has a variety of lawn applications and treatments to make sure that your biting pests are kept at bay, and kept away for good. There is no reason why you should have to be afraid to spend time on your lawn, especially when there are football catches to be had and memories to be made. If there is anything keeping you from enjoying your yard, don’t hesitate to get in contact with Island Environmental Pest Control.

Island Environmental Pest Control is here for all of your pest control, lawn and ornamental needs. Pests are a part of life, but they shouldn’t be preventing you from enjoying your property.
