Holistic Pest Control in Leander, TX
What Is Integrated Pest Management?
Integrated Pest Management provides a solution for the long term instead of applying a quick band-aid repeatedly without fixing the underlying problem. It encompasses:
- Sanitation (clean up of the area that is attracting the pests)
- Exclusion (close up access points that allow entry)
- Mechanical (traps for removal of current pests)
- Cultural (plants that repel rather than attract pests)
Pest Control the Holistic Way
When you see pests in your personal space, you are seeing the symptom of a problem. YardDoc’s holistic pest management philosophy focuses on the root cause. The environmental impact of our decisions is considered each step of the way.
YardDoc’s team of experts has the tools and training needed to safely and effectively deter pests from your personal spaces. We resort to chemical deterrents only if necessary.
The first step of our holistic approach is segregation. Our goal is to allow pests to contribute to the ecosystem away from your personal space. Partnering with you allows us to develop the best solution for your household and your family. The chemical deterrents we use as a last-resort range from 98% to 100% natural.
Common Pests in Leander, TX
Beneficial insects are harmed using chemicals commonly used to kill mosquitoes. YardDoc’s environmentally conscious solutions help reduce the population safely.
Cockroaches will dine on anything organic, preferring protein and sweets. Creating a less attractive environment for them and blocking access is effective at keeping them out.
Never ignore a rodent issue. Not only do they make a terrible mess and chew through walls, they also host and spread bacteria and diseases. YardDoc is well adept at encouraging them to relocate.
Foragers who assist others in finding food by spreading a trail of pheromones, ants can be a challenge to remove. Our focus is on helping you locate and remove what’s attracting them, so they don’t want to be there anymore.
Leander is home to many species of wildlife. We can respectfully manage the foxes, moles, rabbits, and possums who are trying to share your space.
Although spiders eat smaller spiders and insects, and most aren’t harmful to people and animals, sharing your home with them may not be high on your list. YardDoc can help manage your spider population.
Stinging is a deal breaker for scorpions even though they can be useful by preying on insects, spiders, lizards, and other scorpions. Our techniques safely control their population.
