Throughout the Lake Norman area, many love to spend time outdoors enjoying time on the lake, the scenic views, and more. But when you're dealing with mosquitoes and other biting insects like fleas and ticks, that can sour your outdoor time.
At Proformance Turf, we provide monthly pollinator-friendly treatments that target these insects at homes, businesses, and one-time events in Denver, Huntersville, Cornelius, and surrounding cities.
In recent years, there has been a focus on ensuring that the bee population does not continue its current decline. From April 2018 to April 2019, managed bees (colonies kept by beekeepers) decreased by over 40%, according to ABC News. Wild bee populations are also starting to dwindle.
One factor in the loss of bees is the overuse of pesticides and insecticides that can kill them and other pollinators. We care deeply about the environment at Proformance Turf and offer synthetic and organic products to our customers.
The products we use are "bee-safe" and only target nuisance pests such as fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes.
Starting in March and ending typically in September or October, we apply monthly mosquito control treatments at your home or business using a liquid sprayer. Keeping mosquitoes off your Lake Norman property helps prevent painful, itchy bites—but it also can help prevent the spread of diseases commonly transmitted by mosquitoes, such as:
These diseases can have adverse effects on you, your loved ones, and your pets. Keeping them protected from mosquito bites during peak season helps to stop these diseases from affecting those on your property. If you're hosting an outdoor event, we can also apply a one-time event treatment.
Harder to spot than mosquitoes, fleas and ticks can also carry harmful diseases. Fleas are a tiny insect that can easily hop onto you, your children, or your pets, causing itchy bites and skin irritation. In some rare cases, flea bites can carry the bubonic plague or murine typhus as well.
Ticks, mistakenly sometimes referred to as insects, are actually arachnids. They can latch onto your skin, often burrowing into hidden areas where it's not as easy to spot them, such as your scalp or armpit area. The black-legged tick, which lives in the southeastern United States, transmits Lyme disease, which can cause several bad side effects for those who come down with the disease.
With monthly flea and tick control treatments, we can help ensure these nasty pests stay away from those on your property who want to spend time outdoors. It's still recommended, however, to check yourself and others for any ticks.
