There are three spider mites that are most common around homes in Thornton. Clover mites are the size of a pin head and are the most likely to migrate indoors. The Banks grass mite is the smallest of the other mites on this list that are also among the most destructive. Brown-wheat mites prefer locations away from trees and buildings. Lawn Doctor’s experts know how to recognize the damage mites cause, so our lawn mite treatments target the mites attacking your Thornton lawn.
Spider mites are not true insects. They are classed as a type of arachnid and are close relatives of spiders, ticks, and scorpions. Therefore, our lawn mite treatment in Thornton must differ slightly from insect treatment. The initial assessment is the most important part of our process, where we identify that mites are present and which ones. Then we customize a pest control solution to your specific mite problem. We target them with our initial treatments so that our pest control maintenance treatments keep them away.
Mite treatment is an essential part of building a healthy lawn. When our Thornton pest control technicians apply your first spring fertilizer and weed control sprays, we will include a complimentary miticide application. When used in conjunction with consistent lawn fertilization and frequent aeration, pest control will help expedite your lawn’s healing process—a lawn can’t heal if it is still being damaged. If the damage is too extensive, we will use our power seeding services to help your lawn recover rapidly.
