Does Pest Control Harm Your Plants?

As homeowners, we understand the importance of maintaining a pest-free environment both inside and outside our homes. This sometimes raises the question “does pest control harm the plants?” Today, we’re here to set the record straight and shed light on how Gato Guard‘s pest control services can actually benefit your plants.

The Importance of Outdoor/Perimeter Pest Control

One of the keys to successful pest control is keeping the perimeter of your home maintained and protected from pests. Perimeter pest control creates a protective barrier around the edges and foundation of your home or building, effectively preventing pests from entering. But does this type of treatment harm existing plant life? Not with Gato Guard!

Gato Guard offers pest control solutions for the entire Orlando area of Florida

Lawn Services

Our lawn and shrub care services are designed not only to eliminate pests, but also to strengthen the existing flora. Our custom-blended treatments target lawn-damaging insects such as chinch bugs, sod web worms, mole crickets, fire ants, fleas, and certain diseases. Additionally, our special blend includes essential nutrients that actually nourish your lawn, promoting healthy growth and resilience against pests.

Palm Care

Gato Guard’s Palm Care Service is another example of how our treatments benefit your plants. In addition to preventing palm weevils and bud rot, our service includes granular fertilization during each visit. This provides much-needed nutrients to sustain the health and vitality of your palms, ensuring they thrive year-round.

Mosquito Misting

Even our outdoor mosquito misting solutions are plant-friendly. Our system utilizes a water-based, biodegradable botanical insecticide derived from the chrysanthemum flower. These derivatives are called pyrethrins and are rapidly degraded by sunlight or rain which prevents any residues. Due to the insecticide’s plant-based origin, insects do not build up resistance to pyrethrins which ensures long-term efficacy. This natural insecticide effectively controls mosquitoes, no-see-ums, and other biting insects.

In conclusion, Gato Guard‘s pest control services are not only effective in eliminating pests, but also completely safe for your plants. By strengthening your lawn, shrubs, and palms, we create a healthier outdoor environment that is resistant to pest infestations. Say goodbye to pests and hello to flourishing plants with Gato Guard!
