Pest Control

Weed control is the periodic effort to eliminate unwanted plant growth in a desirable area or landscape. Traditionally the manual method of removing weeds was the simplest way to get the weeds out. Unfortunately, due to multiple weed seasons, Winter and Summer annuals, this method becomes a never ending chase to pull them out.

The easier and most efficient method is to apply a pre-emergent herbicide to the desired areas of control to prevent the already present weed seeds from growing. This application should be “On Season” typically in the late fall and early winter.

Weed control is a pre-planned program designed to eradicate weeds and then prevent future growth. The majority of our customers come to us once their property has been covered with weeds and no mechanical (hand picking) effort solves the problem.

At this point we provide an application of a systemic or contact herbicide to kill existing growth and a pre-emergent herbicide is applied to stop seeds as they germinate.

The key to control is application of “Pre-Emergent” at the proper time to prevent future growth.

Finally, weed control is “cumulative”…as weed growth is reduced so is the seed source that caused the problem in the first place.

Unlike most companies, Complete Pest Management does not ask you to water in the applied pre-emergent. We apply the pre-emergent with a sufficient amount of water to activate the product. We will set up your program for optimal timing of your services.

We cannot safely apply herbicides to flower beds nor in or around trees and shrubs. These will have to be manually removed. We do not remove weeds!
