As we drive around the Temecula and Fallbrook areas this time of year, we see lots of flower and vegetable gardens popping up. Gardening can be a fun and rewarding activity, except when garden and landscape pests sneak in and literally consume the fruits of your labor!
Insects can do a good amount of damage to a garden, but even worse are rabbits, ground squirrels, gophers, rats, and birds, all of which are capable of destroying large portions of your garden virtually overnight.
DIY Landscape Pest Control
Many people try to take care of these types of pests themselves using home remedies or over-the-counter traps or poisons. Sometimes, if the problem isn’t too large, these methods can be effective. But you are still left to deal with the animal yourself. If you go with a trap, you are forced to either free the animal (possibly allowing it to return to your property) or terminate it—neither of which are pleasant options for most people. If you use store-bought poisons or smoke bombs, you may exterminate some of the pests, but you also may not be able to locate the carcasses until they start to smell—or worse yet—until one of your pets finds the poisoned animal.
