Bed Bugs

Bed bugs have extraordinarily small bodies with a brown camouflage, they lay eggs everywhere, and are easily transferred, allowing them to infest entire homes and businesses. Bed bugs, often found in mattresses, bedding, clothing, furniture, and more can be recognized by the musty odor they exude, the brown and black spots on infected surfaces, blood stains on mattresses and bedding from crushed bed bugs, or their bite marks. Bed bug bites emit a burning sensation and generally are several red marks in a precise line.

Ant

Ants

Carpenter ants are only one species of ants which could infest your home or business. They have large black bodies and typically nest in wood able to retain moisture and easily accessible from the soil like wood porch structures, window frames, and door frames. You have an infestation if you see swarms of flying ants in the spring around wood structures, these are the adult ants leaving the nest to find new territory. Another sign of a carpenter ant infestation is wood dust or small piles of wood shavings found close to older damp wood.

Cockroach

The American cockroach is the largest species of cockroaches invading homes. They have a reddish brown or mahogany color with a yellow band outlining the area behind their head. Found anywhere food or moisture is present, these cockroaches are about two inches long and both the females and males can fly. They give off a musty smell and as they mature become more reddish brown. These cockroaches will hide in damp dark places.

There are many species of wasps, ranging from microscopic to 1 ½” in size and ranging in color from black to metallic blues and greens and from reddish-brown to dark red and orange. Most wasps have a pinched waist and two pairs of wings. Wasps will nest in several places surrounding your home including hose reels, electrical boxes, soffits, decks, in the corners of windows, under awnings and porches, attics, crawl spaces, and gas grills.

Why fertilize your lawn

Nobody has time to mulch, plant, turn soil, or monitor your soil health 24/7…that’s why A-Landlord is here to provide that helpful nudge in the right growing direction.

Regular fertilization to your lawn promotes root and grass growth, in the absence of constant monitoring, which helps vegetation prosper so you can enjoy your lawn when those Wisconsin summers hit.

What time of year do you fertilize your lawnProfessional lawn care services in Wisconsin

We know you’ve got to be asking yourself this every time the snow melts to reveal a sad layer of yellow or brown grass, but when is the right time to fertilize your lawn?

We recommend a professional application of fertilizer specific to your vegetation twice a year to keep your lawn green. The first application should happen around April or May, when your lawn is doing the most growing (per rain and warm weather). The second application should occur at the end of summer as the weather begins to cool again, but not during freezing temperatures.

For an even healthier lawn, we recommend regular seasonal fertilizing from professionals who know when it’s time. Never fertilize your lawn mid-summer when the temperatures peak: the salt content in the fertilizer mixed with the heat will dry out your lawn and result in fertilizer burn, effectively killing your yard.  

Lawn Fertilizing Process

Fertilizing your lawn may seem like an easy process, as we’ve outlined below, but it takes a true professional to understand what your lawn needs and how much fertilizer is good for your lawns specific vegetation.

  1. Water your lawn a day or two prior to fertilizing
  2. Spread fertilizer around the perimeter of your lot
  3. Fill in remaining middle area with fertilizer

And that’s all! But did you know that depending on your lawn, you may need a broadcast spreader or a drop spreader to properly apply the fertilizer? Or, that your lawn may need different chemicals than your neighbor’s lawn?Why go through the hassle and worry of taking lawn care, when you call on 25 years of experience to get the job done right—and fast.

Dangers of Overkill: Fertilizer Burn

Lawn fertilizer burn results in brown or yellow dead grass blotches scattered across your yard—absolutely NOT the kind of aesthetic you want to show off when the weather finally turns up. Adding excessive amounts of fertilizer to your lawn will result in large salt deposits which can interrupt water absorption by the roots and kill the grass. 

Will over fertilized grass ever grow back?

It will take a lot of work to get your lawn back to the starting point—including monitoring the water levels, expensive seeding, mulching to feed the grass and soil, or, worst case scenario, you have to dig up that section of the lawn and replace it with new grass. 

Don’t go through the hassle of fixing mistakes—let a professional handle your lawn so you get the results you dreamed of, the first time around.
