Why Anderson PEst Control Is The Right Choice For Weed Control

Whether you are a homeowner or a business owner, we can help you get control of weeds by giving your desert landscape what it needs, when it needs it. What does your yard need? Targeted applications of herbicide to weaken weeds and allow your desirable ornamentals to outcompete unwanted vegetation.

Our Weed Control Process

The science of weed control is complex. But there are some key terms that can help you understand the process we can use to make your lawn the envy of your neighbors.

Herbicides

There are two types of herbicides that can be used on your desert landscape. Selective herbicide is used to target certain weeds and leave other plants unharmed. Non-selective herbicide kills almost any plant. We use a mixture of selective herbicides to stunt and eliminate the growth of unwanted vegetation throughout your desert landscape. We use non-selective herbicide to treat soil before planting or to create borders that vegetation should not cross.

Pre-Emergents

These are herbicides that target weeds before they emerge. Makes sense, right? These are put into the ground to stop the germination of seeds and the production of root systems. Typically, these products are applied in late winter or early spring. This is when most weeds take root. But there are a few that can establish root systems in the fall. For these, we apply a pre-emergent in the fall.

Post-Emergents

These are herbicides that are applied directly to the surface of plants. They are applied in appropriate areas for pernicious weeds that require extra attention.

Surfactants

These are wetting agents that increase the penetration, coverage, and general effectiveness of nearly any type of herbicide. These are mixed with liquid herbicides when performing post-emergent applications, and they break the surface tension of the plant to ensure that it has an even coating.

Watering

You know what this is, but you might not know that some products require watering in order to work properly. It is amazing how tiny details like this can be missed in DIY lawn care.

Foot Traffic

It is important to protect areas that have been treated. If kids, adults, dogs, and other animals walk across treated areas, it can cause applications to fail.
