Termite Control in Sierra Vista and all of Cochise County
Termites thrive in Southeastern Arizona, especially in Sierra Vista and Cochise County. Because of the unique microclimates in and around Sierra Vista, Benson, Tombstone, etc., both Subterranean and Drywood species are commonly found.
This means the company you deal with needs to have the experience to tell the difference between the two.
Subterranean Termites require a treatment to the ground, and affected areas inside the house. But these treatments, while very effective for the ground based termites, are not a proper solution to Drywood Termites and a misdiagnosed termite species could result in a false sense of security, wasted money and the necessity of a different treatment for the Drywood Termite.
We provide a complete set of termite monitoring services, real estate inspections, and pre-construction treatments for everything from a small housing subdivision to a large custom commercial building. When Termite Control is part of your name, you had better be good at it…we are.
Weed Control in Sierra Vista and all of Cochise County
Why is weed control such a challenge in Sierra Vista and Cochise County? Simply put, you live in the high desert/savannah and that makes grasses king of the landscape. With all these wild grasses that dominate the area, unwanted seeds are constantly floating in on the wind and trying to take root in your yard. With pressure so high, it is easy for a few weeds to multiply to hundreds unless you are constantly vigilant.
The other challenge to weed control is equipment. Few homeowners have the large volume sprayers needed to get product down that prevents weeds from starting their growth. While it may be nice to hope that the rain is going to arrive, you just need something that will “drive” that product into the ground, get into the growing zone and stop those weeds from making their way to the surface.
University Termite & Pest Control, Inc. provides weed control solutions for both the weeds that have not come up yet, those that are already growing in your yard, and combinations of these two products that ensure a weed free experience year round.
The first step in an effective weed control solution is to stop new weeds from ever entering the picture. Our flexible pre-emergent solutions are timely and keep weeds from germinating below the soil, emerging into the problems they can become.
Weeds that manage to defeat our pre-emergent barrier are quickly dispatched with our monthly visits. These visits are a visual inspection and treatment of your entire yard for any unwanted plants trying to make your yard theirs. Our technicians are trained to understand the difference between what is a “weed” and what is a plant growing on purpose in your yard…no room for error.
