Fleas and ticks are irritating pests that can infest yards and create havoc for both families and pets. It’s nearly impossible to remove them permanently from a natural lawn, but you stand a greater chance against them if you’re using artificial turf in Phoenix.
In fact, synthetic turf can help you remove them from your backyard for good. Here’s how:
Removes sources of food for ticks and fleas
Artificial grass is usually made of polyethylene or nylon and therefore won’t support most insects that feed on plant matter or nutrients in the soil. Because of this, it is unlikely that fleas or ticks will try to set up shop on the new turf.
Eliminates flea and tick breeding areas
Next, artificial grass installation in Phoenix, AZ doesn’t retain moisture so fleas and ticks can’t reproduce inside your yard. Specifically, these pests require moist, warm areas in which to lay their eggs and develop.
These areas are very common on a natural lawn, which is why most people end up with a flea infestation when they have real grass in the yard. In contrast, synthetic turf dries out quickly no matter how hard it rains or how often you rinse out your turf. No moisture, no place for fleas and ticks to multiply.
Makes it easier to keep the lawn clean and pest-free
Fleas and ticks aren’t just attracted to moist areas; they also flock towards pet waste. Unfortunately, it’s hard to keep a natural lawn clean and sanitary if you have a dog around.
For instance, pet urine quickly seeps into the soil and hosing it down won’t help flush it from your yard. As for pet poop, any residue is equally hard to clean up. As a result, your backyard may eventually become not just a breeding ground for fleas and ticks, but for other pests like mosquitoes and flies as well.
Fortunately, it’s much easier to clean pet waste off artificial grass in Phoenix. With a simple hose, you can easily wash away urine and poop residue. You can also apply a cleaning agent to remove bacteria and reduce the chances of attracting pests to your yard.
