You might be worrying more about your shade loving hostas or your spring primroses when we mention concerns about snails and slugs, but did you know that they can also be a source of serious, even fatal diseases?
Snails and slugs are plant eaters mostly found near water and shade, and they will eat your plants with great enthusiasm. But there are diseases that they carry which can be fatal to humans, and it is estimated over 200 million people worldwide are schistosome-infected. When you consider travelers from around the world enter the US on a daily basis, and the fact that we import fruits and vegetables from around the world, you cannot be too careful in protecting your family from exposure.
If you are a typical California homeowner, you might take pride in your organic garden where you grow fruits and vegetables to feed your family. Imagine how you would feel when you try to harvest your new spring lettuces and discover the slugs and snails have beat you to it.
Snails and the shell-less slugs are seen most frequently early in the day and later in the afternoon, as they avoid sunlight whenever possible. Prolific egg layers, the best protection is eradication with the application of a state approved and regulated material chemical barrier by our knowledgeable Onstar technicians around the exterior of your home. A monthly or bi-monthly maintenance program can help keep them away.
Considering the cost of landscaping your home, you really cannot afford to let slugs and snails establish themselves in your yard. Not to mention how thoroughly unpleasant it is to run across your yard at night, barefoot, and step on one. To avoid that is worth any price, and our maintenance programs are very affordable.
