The emerald ash borer is an invasive species of beetle that causes destruction of ash trees. These beetles were introduced to North America by accident in the 1990’s and they continue to spread through the U.S. and Canada. The adult emerald ash borer is metallic green in color and feeds on ash tree leaves and their larvae are white with long, segmented bodies and they feed on the sapwood under the bark.
Tempered glass and double pane glass serve very different purposes because of their different qualities. Double pane glass is better suited for home windows because its insulation properties, due to the double layer of glass, make this glass more energy efficient and good for noise reduction. Tempered glass is more suitable for extreme conditions because it is more heat resistant than normal glass and it breaks into oval pieces which is much safer than glass shards.
The air duct cleaning services offered by Green T can benefit your home by increasing the efficiency of your heating and cooling system, leading to lower energy costs. Dust and debris builds up in the system as it operates which can clog the system if ignored. This results in poor air circulation which forces the system to work harder and consume more energy to push air through. An overworked system is also quicker to malfunction.
Yellow jackets are social wasps that live and work together in colonies. They can be quite beneficial to the surrounding plant life because they prey on plant-eating bugs and pollinate the vegetation of the area. Yellow jackets can become pests however if they are disturbed while scavenging or if their nests are disturbed because of their defensive nature. It is best to try to avoid contact with yellow jackets and their nests if you see any on your property, and if there is a nest that poses a constant threat because of its location, it is best to have Green T Pest Control safely remove it.

One of the best ways to ensure the re-growth of your lawn after a long winter is to apply starter fertilizer in the fall. Starter fertilizer is a powerful fertilizer that boosts germination for fast growth. If starter fertilizer is applied before the winter, it will help the grass seeds germinate and grow back the following spring.
Performing core aerations and over seeding on your lawn late in the season is the best way to prepare your lawn for the cold winter months. The aeration process involves removing 3-4 inch plugs of grass over the entire lawn so that seeds, water, and nutrients can fall into these holes and absorb closer to the root system. It is beneficial to over seed after aeration so that the seeds can easily reach the root system.
Indoor air pollution is a greater risk to our health than outdoor air pollution. The pollution levels indoors can be up to several times higher and people spend much more of their time indoors. Exposure to indoor air pollution can cause common cold-like symptoms that can develop into respiratory diseases over time.

Air duct cleaning is an important aspect of household cleaning and a good way to remove indoor air pollution from the breathing air. The source removal method creates negative air pressure within an air duct system to contain debris within the workspace. The negative air pressure creates an inward airflow that keeps debris from flowing out of the system and into the air under the principle that air flows from high pressure to lower pressure.

Fleas are one of the most common pests and can enter your home in a variety of ways. Fleas mostly attack pets and small mammals but have been known to bite humans if there is no other host. Pest control services will survey your property and treat any potential entry points, attics and crawlspaces, and the perimeter of a home to help prevent further or future infestation.
The high survival and reproductive rate of crabgrass helps this weed sprout annually to spread up to 150,000 seeds in a season. Crabgrass has wide, flat leaves that form in a clump that can grow up to a foot in diameter. Healthy root systems and preventative pre-emergent applications can help protect a lawn from crabgrass growth. The cold temperatures of fall and winter kill the crabgrass but not its seeds. It is important to apply weed control once crabgrass is spotted to eliminate it before it fully grows and begins seeding.
