How to control flea pest, grasshopper, mite and insect in your yard
In the last two decades, the number of pest control products on the market has exploded.
The number of products sold has more than tripled, and many companies now have more than 100 employees.
But how do you choose the right product for your lawn?
How to know what to look for when you’re deciding where to put your pest control?
“There’s a lot of information out there, but the product that’s really important to know is how to do it properly,” says Bob Kiely, a Toronto-based pest control consultant.
“The way you do it, what you do to it and how you do the work are the keys to making sure that you don’t have problems.”
What to look out for When you’re considering where to place your pest-control products, you’re likely to look at what the industry is calling “proper product.”
Kielin says it’s important to look through the product descriptions and product pages to see if there are any terms that aren’t clearly spelled out in the product.
“It’s good to make sure that all the different categories are spelled out so you know what you’re getting,” he says.
“If you look at a product and it’s listed as a pesticide, that’s one of the big red flags that you need to check.”
The term pesticide can include both herbicides and pesticides, but it’s usually used to describe chemicals used to kill certain insects.
Kielyn also says it might be worth looking at what’s called a “supplemental product” for a company that doesn’t have a product that contains all of the pesticides.
“We also look at how much product is actually available,” he adds.
“You can also look for what kind of price point the product is at and how much they charge for each product.
It can be a good idea to check the ingredients list to see what the chemicals are in there.”
Here are some of the things to look into when choosing a product to buy.
Herbicides Kielen says it can be helpful to look up the ingredients for each type of product to make an educated decision about which ones are safe to use on your lawn.
“There are a lot more herbicides than there are pesticides,” he explains.
“Some of the most common ones are pyrethroid and carbaryl, both of which have been shown to kill grasshoppers and mites.
It’s very important to understand the difference between these two.
Carbaryl is one of those things that’s been around for a long time, so it’s kind of a safe product.”
He says that carbaryl should be used as an insect control product on a lawn where the grass is being replaced.
“A lot of times you’ll see carbaryl being used on lawns with very thin roots, where it doesn’t kill the grass but it does kill the weeds,” he notes.
For example, you should look for products that contain a chemical called carbaryl. “
Insecticides have been around since the 1940s, so they’re relatively easy to find, but you also need to understand what kind you’re looking for.”

Kiesly says carbaryl is used as a weed killer, not as an anti-parasite.
“I have a lot to say about this, but this is a very important point,” he points out.
“Many people think of carbaryl as an ‘antifreeze’ that can be used on all types of grass, but that is not the case.
Kieslyn says there are a couple of different ways to look under the hood of the product and to see how it’s supposed to work. “
They’re a very different product and are not interchangeable.”

“When you’re talking about herbicides, you want to make certain that it’s a weed control product, and that you’re using it in a way that doesn and can kill weeds,” says Kiele.
“But you also want to look over the side of the plant to see whether it’s being treated for other pests, such as fleas and mite.
If you’re going to do that, then you’ll need to look specifically at the product’s ingredient list.”
Kile’s advice is to look around to find products that don’t contain pesticides and don’t come with a list of recommended uses.
“What you want is to make a decision on the basis of that product and its potential to kill pests,” says he.
“Once you’ve done that, you can look at whether there are alternatives.”
