Perimeter Pest Control In Iowa City, Solon, & Cedar Rapids

Perimeter Pest Control (PPC) is an effective measure to prevent insects inside the home. Although most new homes are energy efficient there are many places where insects gain access. Insects hide in cool, dark places and often go unnoticed until they multiply, becoming a full-on infestation. PPC works well because it is applied to target areas (outside) where insects infiltrate the structure. Common entry points are intersections of wood framing and concrete foundations, around doorways and windows, vents, junction boxes, corners, cracks, and crevices. When an insect crosses over these areas they pass through the residual insecticide, and it is lights out. If they make it into the house they die soon after, before breeding or laying eggs. The toxicity is low and 4 treatments timed with our regular service calls will provide protection throughout the season. Pricing is based on the home size; in most cases, we can provide this protection for around $45 per treatment.

Pests and insects can be a big problem for any homeowner. Not only are they a nuisance, but they can also cause damage to your property. That’s why it’s important to have a good perimeter pest control system in place. At Tompkins Lawn Care, we have professionals who can help you design and implement a perimeter pest control system that will work for your home. We can lay down a protective barrier that prevents insects from entering your home.

Exterminating Insects, One at a Time!

The foundation of your home is the ideal area for insects to nest. Plants, bushes, mulch, and other such areas features are part of curb appeal, but they can also serve as a breeding ground for creepy crawlies. It doesn’t take long for these critters to feel compelled to relocate to more comfy lodgings within your home. These pests are attracted to your home because it provides them with everything they need — food, drink, shelter, warmth, and protection.
To help with such a problem, our experts at Tompkins Lawn Care can assist. We create a protective barrier around your home that immediately squashes any trespassers when they arrive. Insecticide is placed around the house, inside bushes, corners and access points, doorways and windows. Most insects love behind the sidings and find access through cracks and gaps in the foundation, doors and windows. When insects cross over our barrier they pick up the insecticide  and die.

Fungicide Applications

Although most fungal diseases in turfgrass are best controlled by prevention, (core aeration, mowing and basic good cultural practice) some situations require fungicide treatments to cure the disease and prevent it from spreading throughout your property and into others.

Injecting trees is a highly effective method to target pest and disease problems without overlap to non-target organisms and habitats. A variety of products are available from basic fertilizers and amendments for nutrient /mineral deficiencies to insect and disease control can be injected directly into the vascular system of the tree without loss or contamination to soil or water sources as with traditional application methods. Treatments need to be made in the first half of the growing season to ensure proper uptake and pricing is relative to the size and type of control required.

Your trees are an important part of your property, and they need to be healthy in order to look their best. Unfortunately, trees can fall victim to a number of diseases and pests. If you think your trees might be sick, it’s important to have them checked out by a professional to get a tree injection service.
