Exterior Insect Control

Most lawn care companies don’t offer any type of exterior insect control that is unrelated to your lawn. At Scott’s Lawn Care Inc., we are proud to say that we do! Our technicians are all certified with the Minnesota Department of Agriculture as Structural Pest Control Applicators. All technicians go through a hiring process that includes Integrated Pest Management training. At the time of application, a report will be left at your door letting you know the time, date, weather conditions and products applied to your home and property. The report will also let you know any ways the technician found to prevent pest harborage. If you have any insect related concerns, give us a call and we will set up a time to inspect your property.

Our Goals

Our goal is to prevent pests from entering your yard in the first place. This begins at the edge of your property. With our Mosquito and Tick service program, we will treat any wild areas at the edge of your property, as well as all trees, shrubs and perennials. This will prevent all unwanted insects from making your backyard their home and feeding grounds. Next is your home, the number one step to keeping pests of all kinds out is through exclusion. This means inspecting the physical structure of your home for any points of entry. While our pest technician is treating your home, they will also search for these points of entry, noting any in the report left at your door. However, insects are persistent and will continue to try to break through. This is why Scott’s Lawn Care offers the Exterior Structural Insect Control as a regular service program. We will treat around the foundation, including ornamentals near the structure, first-level windows, and under soffits to keep insects from entering your home. Let Scott’s Lawn Care take care of the insects while offering you peace of mind

Living in Minnesota, we all know how frustrating mosquitoes and ticks can be. On top of the normal itchy frustrations, they transmit diseases like West Nile virus and Lyme disease. Combine our mosquito and tick program with our Exterior Structural Insect Control program for ultimate protection. You will wonder why you waited so long!

Scott’s Lawn Care will not fatally treat beneficial pollinators such as honey bees. This is due to our commitment to protecting the environment. We do however have a bee keeper on staff, so if you notice a nest on your property, give us a call, we’d be happy to give our honey bee friends a new home!

Remember seeing these guys in your home late winter or early spring. The only way to keep that from happening is by getting your home treated with our Exterior Structural Insect Control program’s fall treatment to keep them out before they find a place to over winter within the structure.

Some can be destructive like carpenter ants, but most are just annoying! In the second step of the Exterior Structural Insect Control program, comes an exterior barrier treatment. This hand applied treatment can last up to six months and is effective in controlling ants and keeping them out of your home.
