When you purchased your Suwanee home, you probably dreamed about all the ways you would decorate it and make it your own. It is likely that having the perfect lawn was one of the things on your list. However, sometimes insects have their way with your grass and landscaping making things look less than perfect. At Absolute Lawn Pros, we provide lawn care services in the Suwanee area, and we can help combat these pesky lawn-killing insects.

Ants

Most people have had some contact with ants at some point whether it was out in the yard or when these little foragers have made a trail into your kitchen. Most ants don’t threaten the beauty of your lawn and can be left to go about their business. However, fire ants are another thing altogether. Fire ants create little mounds in your lawn or around the edges of your driveway. While the mounds are definitely unsightly, they also pose a bit of a safety risk. Fire ants are known to swarm when their nests are disturbed, and their bites can be quite painful and even dangerous in large quantities. The best way to get rid of ants is with a mechanical killer like diatomaceous earth. Absolute Lawn Pros can help rid your lawn of any fire ant issues you may be having on your Suwanee property.

Fleas

The grass of your lawn makes an excellent shelter for fleas. While these tiny insects won’t damage your grass or landscaping, they can become a big problem if you have outdoor pets. The fleas can make a home in the coat of your furry friend causing itching and irritation. If your pet is allowed indoors as well, those fleas can take up residence in your carpet or on your furniture.

Hornets

Bees are very important, and you should avoid attempting to get rid of all the bees that may be visiting your landscaping. For example, you should never kill honeybees, but that doesn’t mean you have to keep a hive in your backyard! Local beekeepers will generally take a honeybee hive off of your hands. If you have a more aggressive species like the Yellow Jacket making a nuisance in your backyard, Absolute Lawn Pros can help you get rid of these ground-nesting bees before you or your children get stung.

Whatever pest problem you may have brewing in your Suwanee area yard, Absolute Lawn Pros can help you fix it. Give us a call, and we can come to investigate the situation and come up with a lawn care plan to give you the yard you’ve always dreamed of.
