Insects in Your Yard

Insects in Your Yard infographic

Americans in cities across the nation may not be the only ones enjoying a bite during their backyard barbecues this summer.

After surveying thousands of customers, we discovered the following 10 cities are worried the most about mosquitoes, ticks, fleas, ants and other creepy, crawly and sometimes dangerous pests interrupting their time outside. 

1. Hartford, Connecticut

2. Columbus, Ohio

3. Detroit, Michigan

4. Boston, Massachusetts

5. Rochester, New York

6. Cincinnati, Ohio

7. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

8. Providence, Rhode Island

9. Buffalo, New York

10. Chicago, Illinois

As temperatures rise, more insects come out to play. A survey conducted online by Harris Poll for TruGreen in June 2017 found that 60 percent of Americans in the Northeast are worried about ticks ruining their time outside this summer, compared to 48 percent in the Midwest, 35 percent in the South, and 32 percent in the West. If you share these same concerns, we can help. Mosquito Defense uses targeted control to eradicate biting mosquitoes from your property. And TruGreen’s TruShield lawn pest control plan can help reduce the number of pests in your yard including chiggers, earwigs, fleas and ticks, and spiders.

"Nobody likes to be bothered by bugs, but they can be more than just annoying. Insects like ticks and mosquitoes can transmit diseases and cause allergic reactions in both people and pets," said John Bell, board-certified entomologist and TruGreen regional technical manager.

"Having a yard that's free of annoying insects and pests is one of the best ways to live life outside, and TruGreen is committed to helping Americans enjoy life outside without having to worry about biting insects. Our new Mosquito Defense service targets pests where they live and comes with our Mosquito Free Guarantee, which states TruGreen will perform a free re-service anytime a customer sees biting mosquitoes in their yard between treatments.*"

Whether you live in one of the 10 cities most worried about insects, or somewhere else where you just want to banish bugs, here are some tips for minimizing pests in your yard:

  • Mosquitoes lay their eggs near water, so remove standing water that accumulates in things like buckets and birdbaths.

  • Ticks love tall grasses and brush, so keep your grass cut.

  • Invite animals who eat bugs to your yard to move in and feast by placing bat and birdhouses in your yard.

  • Fleas thrive in moist places, so be careful not to overwater your lawn and landscape.

  • Take the necessary precautions recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and consider hiring our team of specialists to address your pest concerns.
