Your home is where you eat, sleep and your children and pets play. You shouldn’t have to worry about pesky insects invading your private space. That’s why Smitty’s Lawn and Landscape provides effective pest control services throughout the Fort Dodge area and beyond. Protect your home with Smitty’s perimeter pest control, and take back your yard from harmful and annoying mosquitoes, fleas, and ticks.

Start Enjoying Your Yard Again With Smitty’s Mosquito Control

Imagine enjoying your Fort Dodge yard without the constant itching and swatting of mosquitoes. As a family-owned business, Smitty’s knows the importance of protecting your loved ones. Mosquitoes are harmful pests carrying diseases such as West Nile and the Zika virus. We take pride in providing quality mosquito control that surpasses our competitors. Unlike the competition, we target the mosquitoes at every controllable stage in their life cycle.

How Our Effective Mosquito Control Works
We use a unique backpack power blower to apply a fine mist to your shrubs, trees, lawn, and around the perimeter of your home, especially in the backyard. Our full program consists of four treatments from late spring to early fall. The two products we use are:

Demand CS
Demand CS is a new advanced-generation pyrethroid that controls mosquitoes and more than 30 other insects such as spiders, ants, fleas, and wasps. It can be used indoors or outdoors.

Archer Insect Growth Regulator
Effectively interrupts the life cycle of mosquitoes, preventing eggs and larvae from developing into adults. It can be used indoors or outdoors.

Safe Effective Mosquito Control Will Eliminate Other Pests As Well
These products are safe for your loved ones and pets and will help to control mosquitoes and help eliminate fleas, ticks, spiders, and other pests. While our products last longer than others commonly used by our competitors, they still need to be applied every six weeks for the best outcome.

Mosquito Control for Special Events

Planning a special event such as a wedding, graduation party, or backyard barbecue in the Fort Dodge area? We recommend scheduling out two different treatments for maximum mosquito control, one about three weeks before the event and a follow-up treatment within 24 – 48 hours prior.

What is Perimeter Pest Control and How Does It Work?

Perimeter pest control is a liquid application of insecticide placed around the outside of your home, creating a barrier that stops insects from coming in. We treat four to six feet around the outside of your structure and two to three feet up to your foundation wall. This is the area where insects are generally most active and where they may find an entrance to your home. Smitty’s perimeter insect control consists of three applications per year applied in spring, summer, and fall.

How Can I As the Home or Business Owner Help?

Successful control of “Home Invaders” requires the cooperation of the homeowner. Here are some ways you can help our spring, summer, and fall treatments.

  • Check caulking around the exterior, including window casings.
  • Place exterior lighting as far from the structure as possible.
  • Keep garbage cans tightly covered.
  • Avoid stacking firewood on the ground near the structure.
  • Check sealing of entry points, including those around plumbing, electrical wiring, etc.
  • Make certain all soffits and wall vents are properly screened.
  • Be sure that all ground-level doors seal properly.

Protect Your Loved Ones and Pets With Our Powerful Flea and Tick Shield

Like mosquitoes, fleas and ticks can be a danger to your family and pets. They carry harmful diseases such as Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. These parasitic creatures are typically found outside in areas of low brush and shrubs.

Smitty’s Lawn and Landscape offers a professional flea and tick shield. It starts with a free inspection of your Fort Dodge area lawn designed to locate where fleas and ticks are harboring on your property. Our flea and tick shield offers three different visits in which we apply a liquid application on your lawn and surrounding target areas such as wood lines, shrubbery, and tall grass. Each spray lasts for 60 days and is considered safe and effective for your pets and family.

Our flea and tick control professionals work hard to provide you with results that you can count on to protect your family all season long. When you partner with us, we will put your mind at ease and allow you to enjoy your lawn again. Call 515-576-0985 or contact Smitty’s Lawn and Landscape now and start enjoying your backyard.
