Weed Control With Pre-emergent

There are many reasons to utilize a Weed control program. Weeds are time consuming, difficult to control and unsightly. The use of well timed herbicide applications are essential in the upkeep of any residential yard or commercial landscape. A weed control program utilizes two stages; a pre-emergence to prevent seeds from germinating and a post-emergence to kill visible weeds.

Pre-emergent herbicides control seedlings before they emerge through the topsoil. These herbicides should be applied twice a year. Pre-emergent applications are most effective when applied in the early Fall (July.-Aug.) and the early Spring (Feb.-Mar.). Essential Pest Control uses a herbicide product designed to limit future weed growth, stopping the seedlings from germinating.

Post-emergence herbicides are used to kill visible weeds. Some weeds may have started growing, but have not emerged through the soil surface. Growth under topsoil may require multiple visits and applications. Post-emergence herbicides ideally should be applied when the weed is actively growing, but if the plant is dormant alternative products are utilized. Essential Pest Control offers several post-emergence programs to control weeds dependent upon the demands of the property including weed pressure, location, landscape, and desired level of control.

So remember, the key to a beautiful, cost effective yet professional looking landscaped yard is a proper herbicide control program. The key to a successful herbicide control program is a proper pre-emergence application and a continued post-emergence application. Whether it is to improve your property's curb appeal, make your yard the envy of your neighbors, or just save you valuable time and effort Essential Pest Control is your ally in the war against weeds.
