You don't want insects meddling around your home. They are bothersome guests that unsettle your nerves and can pose a danger to your family. If you want to protect your property from pests, then we have the solution for you. At Sharp Lawn Care, we provide perimeter pest control services to residents in Sioux Falls, SD, Sioux City, IA, and surrounding areas in southern South Dakota.

Our licensed services target all of the insects most commonly found in our region, including ants, cockroaches, flies, spiders, and more. We apply our eco-friendly surface insecticide treatments around the exterior of your home and in harborage areas throughout your property. Our perimeter pest control services are available as part of our Sharp Home Defender Package that includes 4 treatments between the spring and early fall.


What pests do our treatments target?

We use an eco-friendly surface insecticide called bifenthrin to treat your property for pests. Essentially, this product creates an invisible barrier around your home or office building. Bifenthrin is safe, highly effective, and targets more than 75 types of insect pests. These include the most common insects found in our area, such as:

  • Ants
  • Beetles
  • Chiggers
  • Cockroaches
  • Crickets
  • Earwigs
  • Fleas
  • Flies
  • Gnats
  • Spiders
  • Ticks & More

Bifenthrin is fast-acting and will kill insects shortly after contact by interfering with their nervous system. Although fatal for pests, this product will not affect your pets once it has dried completely. Over time, bifenthrin gradually decimates the insect population on your property so that insects no longer infringe upon you and your family.


Where do we apply our perimeter pest control treatments?

When we visit your home or office, our licensed technicians apply our eco-friendly surface insecticide treatments to the perimeter of your building and in popular insect harborage areas. Specifically, we spray our treatments all around the foundation of your building and pay special attention to points that are vulnerable to entry, like cracks and small openings. We also apply our perimeter pest control treatments around your doorframes, windows, and areas on your property where insects reside. Popular harborage spots include trash bin storage areas, mulch beds, and crawl spaces.

We back our perimeter pest control services with our 100% loophole-free Sharp Lawn Care Guarantee.


When do we apply our pest control treatments?

We apply our perimeter pest control treatments 4 times per year as part of our Sharp Home Defender Package. These treatments occur between mid-spring and early fall when insects are most active in the Sioux Falls, SD and Sioux City, IA areas. Our pest control schedule is as follows:

  • 1st Treatment: Mid Spring (April 20 to May 20)
  • 2nd Treatment: Late Spring (May 20 to June 20)
  • 3rd Treatment: Mid Summer (July 20 to August 20)
  • 4th Treatment: Early Fall (September 20 to October 20)

Our Sharp Home Defender Package gives you the flexibility to subtract one or more of the above treatments. While our 4-treatment offering ensures maximum effectiveness, we understand that different homeowners have unique preferences and needs depending on the insect situation at their property. Our team can help you figure out the best solution to keep your home or office pest-free!

Road Map to a Beautiful Lawn

Lawn Road Map: Step One

Aeration is the First Step

Aeration removes soil cores that can prevent sunlight, water, and nutrients from penetrating the root structure. It promotes lush, healthy grass that’s a great defense against weeds and insect pests. This should be repeated every spring and fall. Learn more about aeration.

Lawn Road Map: Step Two

Fertilization & Weed Control Strengthen Your Lawn

Throughout the season, fertilization and weed control strengthens your grass and kills weeds, which opens the area for more grass to grow once planted in the fall. This should be repeated every season—more on fertilization and weed control.

Lawn Road Map: Step Three

Overseeding Promotes New Growth

In fall, the weeds are under control, the pests are mostly gone, and there are still several weeks of temperatures and conditions ideal for growth. That makes it the only perfect time for overseeding so that you get great new growth ahead of winter and are ready to go the next spring. One other thing to mention is the type of grass seed, which is the most important thing to consider. Choosing the correct seed will give your lawn a better growth habit and improve wear, heat, and drought tolerance. This should be done every fall until thick and then every 3-5 years, or as needed. Get the full story on fall seeding.

The Homeowner's Portion

Lawn Road Map: Step Four

Keep Your Grass at the Proper Height

Keeping your grass at the proper height for the season has two benefits: it provides shade for the roots during the hotter months and reduces other stresses that can cause damage. During spring and fall, keep it at 3 ½ to 4 inches; go up to 4 ½ inches during the summer. Regardless of length, never cut more than 40% off at once. How to do mowing right.

Lawn Road Map: Step Five

The Right Amount of Water

Adequately water, but don’t overwater. Water 2 or 3 days each week, with an inch per week being the average in spring and fall and up to 2 inches when it gets hotter in the summer. Save water and money by watering early in the morning before evaporation kicks in—more watering tips here and here.

Lawn Road Map: Step Six

Enjoy Your Beautiful Lawn!

This road map to a beautiful lawn is really a formula we’ve developed and honed for nearly 2 decades now. Working together with you, we’ll follow this plan, and you’ll see a beautiful lawn in just 1-2 seasons. Better yet, we’ll keep it that way!
