Insect pests aren’t the only organisms that can harm or damage the plants in your landscape. Damage to your plants can also be caused by fungi or bacteria and can be difficult to diagnose in some cases.
When the plants on your lawn are exposed to a disease, the effects may be simply cosmetic or could be more damaging. Some early symptoms of a possible disease infecting your lawn or shrubbery may include leaf or stem discoloration, and in some instances, damage to the roots, which could lead to the eventual death of plants or grass.
Promoting proper plant nutrition and establishing a routine plant disease management strategy can help in reducing plant disease infections to your turf, lawn, shrubs, trees, and other outdoor plants.
We highly recommend that you consult with your Pinnacle Pest Management certified technician to schedule a routine assessment of your lawn and landscape.
Not only are pests a nuisance, there are also many insects and creatures that can carry and spread human diseases and illnesses. Pest management is necessary to reduce and eliminate pests that threaten human health and property. Some pests transmit disease by stinging or biting, and some pick up disease-causing bacteria and parasites as a result of their lack of hygienic nesting and feeding habits which can lead to the contamination of surfaces throughout a home. Establishing a routine pest control management strategy reduces the opportunity for illness to be introduced into your home and will lessen the threat outdoors.
Diseases that common household pests like rodents, cockroaches, flies, and mosquitos include Lyme Disease, Salmonellosis, Dysentery, Tape Worms, Tick Bites, Asthma and others.
Preventative action is highly recommended to avoid pest-borne illness. Speak with Pinnacle Pest Management’s certified technicians to schedule routine pest control services designed to lessen the threat of sickness and disease due to the presence of pests on your property.
