Lawn Care FAQ

What lawn care services do you offer?
Our goal is to give you the greenest, thickest, and the lushest lawn in your neighborhood.
We offer a Lawn Program, that includes fertilization each visit, crabgrass control, grub control, and weed control.
We also offer power seeding.
What chemicals do you use and are they safe for my lawn?

Our lawn care program is an organic-based program because it successfully controls weeds while severely reducing chemical use compared to our competitors. This program abides by a minimal chemical philosophy: We spot spray your weeds instead of “blanket spraying”. We also ask that you raise your mowing deck to the highest level to reduce weed germination. A thick tall lawn is the best weed control! 

How will my lawn services be scheduled?

Lawn Programs begin in mid-February and are treated on a 7-week rotation until November/December. Your Lawn Tech will text you the day prior to each visit.

Mosquito Control FAQ

What diseases do mosquitoes carry?

Mosquitoes are arguably the most deadly animal on the planet. Locally they transmit Zika, Eastern Equine Encephalitis Virus (EEE), and West Nile disease.

What chemicals do you use for mosquito control and are they safe?

Our most popular program is our 8-Visit Mosquito Control. We mist your yard with a light application of permethrin, the same chemical found in most pet flea applications. We use it because it offers excellent control of mosquitoes while keeping you and your pets safe.

Why do you come every three weeks for mosquito control visits?

Mosquitoes develop from eggs to biting adults in 21 days. Our program targets adults as they emerge and feed on plant juices. Our goal is to eliminate all adults before they breed and seek you out to bite! Our mantra is “Hit them early, and hit them often.”

How will my mosquito control services be scheduled?

Mosquito Control begins in April. Your property will be treated once every three weeks on a ZIP code rotation until September. Your Mosquito Tech will text you the day prior to each visit.

Perimeter Pest FAQ

What does Perimeter Pest Control entail?

Perimeter pest control is often likened to a protective "shield." By applying a high-quality pest control product around your property, the aim is to prevent pests from entering.

This approach differs from extermination services, which deal with pests already present in your home. Given the rapid breeding and multiplication of pests, the concept behind perimeter pest control is to tackle them before they infiltrate your living space. The pest control product is applied externally, reinforcing the analogy of a shield.

The shield analogy becomes particularly apt in understanding that perimeter pest control is a proactive and defensive measure. The goal is to address potential pest issues before they escalate into problems within your home.

What Pests Does It Control? Perimeter pest control works on some of the most common pests that are known to be lurking around Louisville homes. These include:
    • Ants
    • Fleas
    • Cockroaches
    • Centipedes
    • Millipedes
    • Spiders
    • Silverfish
How Safe is Perimeter Pest Control?

When assessing the safety of perimeter pest control services, another crucial factor to consider is the method of product application. This encompasses the training and expertise of the technicians responsible for the application.

At Limbwalker, we prioritize safety by employing highly trained professional pest control technicians who possess a deep understanding of the proper application techniques. This, in itself, enhances the safety of the process.

Well-trained technicians are adept at identifying specific areas on the property where product application will yield optimal results. Rather than indiscriminately covering the entire property, the focus is on targeted zones frequented by pests in their attempts to infiltrate. This strategic approach minimizes unnecessary product usage.

The assurance that our technicians don't need to enter customers' homes provides an added layer of comfort. We believe the most effective defense against pests is preventing their entry into people's homes from the outset.

To further ensure safety, we recommend that homeowners remain indoors, along with their pets and children, during the application. Your safety is a top priority for us, and it's important to note that once the product is dry, it is safe. In many cases, the product is nearly dry before we conclude our work on the property.

Does perimeter pest control guarantee interior results? Yes...for crawling insects. Perimeter Pest control will not keep flying insects from entering your home. However, Perimeter Pest treatments will drastically reduce indoor pests by controlling them if they are attempting to enter your home via the treated surfaces. If we are unable to prevent crawling pests from entering your home, then we will gladly refund your money 100%.

Worked with Matt earlier this week to confirm which trees should get Deep Root Fertilization. Brooke showed up this morning and did the work - as always, excellent service with attention to detail - my trees are happy. Matt and team also evaluated trees throughout the yard to determine how best to protect them. Excellent advice from the team.
