Anti-pest technicians at Nature's Own Pest & Lawn Services want to have it all. In addition to upholding a commitment to sustainable practices, they refuse to sacrifice effectiveness or long-lasting results. And after years of fighting pests in Texas, they're all too familiar with the local pests. For each operation, they perform a thorough inspection of the home's interior or exterior, and then take hold of their environmentally friendly gear, plus a few organic pesticides and baits. Whether the team is treating a sprawling yard for mosquitos, setting up pet-friendly traps to ward off squirrels but not Fido, or removing small bed bugs from a mattress, it aims to select a solution that will yield long-term results. They also tend lawns with weed control techniques that quell intruding shrubs and nutrient-rich fertilizers that help grass blades grow into strong, sharp grasshopper swords.
