Lawn Pest Control – Mosquitos, Fleas & Fire Ants

May 17, 2017

lawn pest controlAll of our recent rain has stirred up the pests and you’re probably seeing them out in force.  If fleas, ticks, mosquitos and fire ants caused problems for you last year, Mumme’s has a number of lawn pest control products to help you get ahead of them now!

Texas has already reported a threat of West Nile virus. Take preventative action now to eliminate mosquitos and their larvae. Remove all standing water, place mosquito dunks in birdbaths and rain barrels.  Mosquito Barrier is an amazing garlic based product we offer at Mumme’s Because mosquitos are soft-bodied insects, garlic is highly toxic to them in high concentrations. Mosquito Barrier spray will eliminate mosquitoes without harming other insects— a gallon of Mosquito Barrier will cover up to 4 treatments a year.  And, when mixed with canola oil, this product can be applied to standing water and will suffocate mosquito larvae. We also carry Mosquito Dunks, Mosquito Torpedos, the Skeeter Screen Patio Egg, Personal Spray and Patio Candle to ward off mosquitos from your outdoor spaces and off you!

Apply insect killing sprays to your yard now. We recommend Martin’s Cyonara 9.7 or Adams Plus Yard Spray for lawns. This yard spray is an emulsifiable concentrate with a convenient hose-end sprayer. It contains permethrin to kill fleas, ticks, mosquitos, ants and crickets on lawns, yards, flowers and shrubs for up to four weeks. After you add an insecticide to your lawn, apply flea and tick products to your pets to keep the pests from invading your pet’s fur and indoors.

Mumme’s offers a variety of flea control including: Martin’s FLEE Dip and Martin’s FLEE Topical Treatment Plus IGR for Dogs, Frontline plus for dogs and cats, Advantage for dogs and cats, Advandix, Capstar, Bio spot, Spectra Shield collar medallions, All ADAMS Flea products. Come by and shield your pets today!

As you may have already seen the evidence, the rain also already brought out the fire ants.  Treat mounds with Demon WP and use your broadcast spreader to thoroughly treat your lawn or use Over N’ Out fire ant killer.
