Outdoor Pest Control

Outdoor Pest Control Program Details

Take back the great outdoors with Lang’s multi-faceted outdoor pest control. We use state of the art materials and application techniques to reduce populations of annoying , and dangerous, pests such as Ticks and Mosquitos as well as common home invaders.

Perimeter Pest Control:

This services envelopes your home in a protective barrier to deter many common home invaders. Treatments are made to the outside of the home and high traffic areas of the landscape. Bait boxes are placed to control rodent populations as needed. 4 Treatments are made April thru September.

Professional, licensed applicators apply a broad-spectrum control around the home focusing on any areas where pests may gain entry such as windows and doors. We also inspect and treat nearby areas where pests commonly rest and lay eggs such as under decks and stored firewood. The home will also be inspected for wasps and other stinging insects.

The Perimeter Pest Control Service works best when done in conjunction with our popular Tree and Shrub Care service. This helps control pests which feed on your valuable landscape plants. Basic program included 4 visits during April thru October. (*Control of Stink Bugs is NOT included)

Mosquito Control:

Don't let annoying, biting mosquitoes and other no-see-ums drive you inside this summer. Take back the great outdoors with Lang's Mosquito Control Program. Not only are these pests an irritating nuisance, but they also carry Malaria and West Nile Virus.

Our technicians will inspect and treat areas where mosquitoes frequently lay eggs such as fish ponds, trash cans, compost piles, and poor drainage areas. Next, a mosquito barrier is applied around the house focusing on high use areas such as patios and play areas. This barrier works best if applied every 21 days to control adult females seeking a blood meal. We can also apply pre-event treatments prior to weddings, family-reunions, and holiday picnics.

Here are some things you can do to make your landscape less attractive to mosquitoes:

  • Dispose of any containers that collect water
  • Remove debris from rain gutters regularly
  • Clean outdoor pet water/food bowls regularly
  • Change water in bird baths weekly
  • Repair leaky outdoor faucets

Flea and Tick Control:

Aside from being a major nuisance to your pets, Fleas & Ticks also carry dangerous diseases such as Bubonic Plague and Lyme Disease. If your pet brings those pests inside, you could have REAL issues! Here at Lang's, we use a three-tier approach to controlling these two common outdoor pests.

Turf Areas

Granular Flea/Tick Treatments made throughout late spring and summer in conjunction with your regular lawn treatment.

Non-Turf Areas

Targets areas where Fleas and Ticks breed and hang out waiting to hitch a ride on you or your pet.

Tick Tubes

An exciting new weapon in the war against Lyme Disease. Bio-degradable tubes introduce treated nesting materials to inoculate mice. Deer ticks actually contract Lyme Disease during the nymph stage from mice. Reduces Tick populations thereby reducing the spread of disease.

All treatments are made by licensed applicators and are virtually odorless. Call us for a free assessment of your landscape and an outline of what our program can do to help your family and pets enjoy your landscape investment.

**please note: services continue year to year unless we hear from you via email or mail stating otherwise. If you have any questions, please contact us.

Why are Fleas a Problem?

Although fleas can transmit diseases such as bubonic plague and murine typhus, they are primarily a nuisance pest to pets and humans. The bite of a flea can cause itching and redness on humans. On pets however, a flea bite can cause serious problems such as dermatitis, tapeworm, and anemia.

Lyme Disease and Deer Ticks

The risk if being bit by an infected tick is greatest in the summer months (especially June and July) when the nymph stage is active. Make a habit of thoroughly checking yourself for the tiny nymph following any outdoor activities. About 30 to 50 percent of the Deer Ticks found in our area are infected with and able to transmit Lyme Disease. Once the tick carries its disease it will retain it to the next stage and be able to infect future hosts.

Outdoor Lawn Applications

Effective outdoor flea and tick control can be achieved when the entire border of wooded area and brush is treated. Your first flea and tick application will quickly control the adults and provide a 26-28 day residual for emerging adults.

For maximum results applications should be repeated every 30 days throughout the summer.

Our Flea and Tick Control Program consists of monthly visits during the tick season
