Summer brings with it a slew of events and activities best enjoyed outside. Suddenly, our backyards are more than just mere grass and gardens. As the weather warms up, our exterior property transforms into outdoor living spaces. Our lawns turn into our favorite spots to dine, entertain, play, and simply lounge in whenever we have free time.
Living with spiders isn’t a practice anyone wants to endure, luckily there are ways to get rid of these creepy insects and prevent them from calling your home theirs. Maryland is home to several different types of spiders, and some that aren’t necessarily native, but show up on occasion and should be noted. If you think you have a spider infestation, you should educate yourself on some common information about the different species in Maryland, and know when it’s time to call a trained professional from On The Green Inc. Here’s some spiders you can find in our state and how to identify them and the tracks they leave behind.
Nothing is more annoying than sitting in your yard on a quiet summer evening, enjoying a drink or a nice meal, only to have it interrupted by a buzzing. To top it off, you might feel a sudden sting on your arm or leg, realizing you’ve fallen victim to a real-life vampire. You are going to need to know how to get rid of mosquitoes and keep them off your property!
Mosquitoes not only are a bother, but they can also carry quite a few dangerous diseases like West Nile virus. Most people find these pests unpleasant enough they invest in sprays, candles, and even electronic devices to protect against invasions. An even more useful measure is to make your property less attractive to mosquitoes, and On the Green, Inc. wants to teach you how.
Not everything green is good. If you notice there’s moss growing in your lawn, you’re likely concerned about the reason why. Another concern is how moss growth affects the health of your grass. Just like common weeds, moss competes for water, nutrients, and space on the ground. In other words, it won’t help your lawn to become as healthy and strong as possible. By understanding why moss thrives in your lawn, you’ll learn what to do about it.
You’re likely familiar with organic produce and even packaged organic foods at the grocery store. That’s why to some, the thought of organic-based lawn care seems strange. The fact is you stand to gain quite a few compelling benefits by taking this approach to your grass.
Lawn Health and Composting
If you think about it, grassy fields in the wilderness grow and stay perfectly healthy. Organic-based lawn care can actually make your grass stronger and more vibrant than ever, just by taking a natural approach.
This dog must be a past survivor of a flea attack. He REALLY hates the word ‘fleas’. You can’t blame him, fleas aren’t fun and your furry family members shouldn’t have to deal with constant bites and uncontrollable itching and irritation.
No one ever wants to hear that their dog has fleas. Unfortunately, it happens.
Fleas are considered parasites and can be referred to as ‘freeloaders’ meaning they hitch a ride on a living host and thrive there with everything they need to survive. These pesky bugs are more prone to be seen in the warmer months, making them a common issue during the summer.
