The heat wave is devastating and doing a number on our lawns, home and landscape. Another negative impact is the increased amount of spiders, fleas and ticks that are setting up as unwanted guests in our homes.
Remember - some bugs like the brown recluse spider and ticks can be very dangerous to your health. It's essential to check yourself, kids and pets when you've been outside, especially in tall grass or landscaped areas.
I never recommend pesticides in the home. When you get into a bad problem it's time to call a professional - they can handle the situation much better than homeowners. See you next week!
