How To Care For The Palm Trees On Your Captiva Property

When you think of Florida, one of the first things you think of is a palm tree waving in a beach breeze. Palm trees are an iconic site around Captiva, and while these trees are strong enough to withstand a hurricane, they still need proper care to grow and remain healthy. 

Proper palm tree care is critical to ensuring the health and beauty of your palm trees. Here are three essential steps to growing healthy palm trees:

  • Pruning: It is important to prune dead palm fronds, but leave a small amount of green on the fronds after pruning. 
  • Watering: Like all trees, palm trees need water to grow, but the right amount is important. Too much water can lead to root rot, and too little can cause stunted growth. 
  • Fertilizing: Palm trees need specific nutrients that aren't always present in our sandy soil, and our experts can determine the best fertilizer plan for your trees. 

Call us today to ensure your palm trees get everything they need to grow and thrive. We can ensure your trees get the right amount of water, nutrients, and pruning to provide years of shade and scenery.

The Most Common Rodents Seen Around Captiva Homes

Rodents are some of the most persistent pests that invade local homes. Mice and rats, the two most common species found around Captiva, know that they can find food, water, and shelter inside our properties. This is why they stop at nothing to claw and bite their way through our walls and slip in through other access points to form nests where their odds of survival are highest. True local rodent control is all about monitoring rodent activity and addressing the problem before it can become entrenched like this.

Tips To Preserve Your Captiva Home's Shrubs

Our yards are more than just decorative spaces that make local properties look pretty. They are our first line of defense against pests and other natural factors that can lead to property damage and cyclical problems. Shrubs, specifically, tend to be used as barriers between properties and decorative borders surrounding the exterior walls of homes. While both situations look nice, they also provide pests and fungi with breeding grounds right near your home. 

This is why you should partner with Coastal Lawn and Pest for these steps that preserve your shrubs and keep the delicate balance of your yard in check: 

  • Pest control: Pests love to form nests inside shrubs. They provide shelter and shade, as well as a base of operations for them to look for other ways inside your home. 
  • Nutrient application: Shrubs, like trees, grow large and wooden roots that penetrate deeper into soils. That means they require certain nutrients that may not be naturally present after a number of years, which is where professional nutrient application is useful for providing what your shrubbery needs. 
  • Fungal control: We also offer fungicide applications that protect your shrubs from damaging organisms. 

We offer far more than just landscaping services in Captiva. The team at Coastal Lawn and Pest is here to combat all kinds of issues that strike local yards, so whether you need trimming and pest control or overall plant maintenance plans, contact us today to get started.

Common Turf-Damaging Insects In Captiva

While just about every pest problem begins outdoors — even the ones that manage to invade a home’s interior — some pests specifically thrive outdoors and pose threats to local yards. Preventing and quickly clamping down on these pests protects your property’s plants from damage and disease, which is why having reliable yard pest control for your Captiva home is recommended. 

At Coastal Lawn and Pest, we help homeowners ward off these and other common turf-damaging pests: 

  • Chinch bugs: Known for their brown color and spotted wings, chinch bugs are some of the most common turf-damaging insects in North America. They can lead to patchy grasses and chewed-through leaves. 
  • Grubs: It’s often the insects that live in the soils, not in the grassy foliage above the ground, that pose the biggest threats to plant life. Grubs are tiny, maggot-like creatures that reproduce incredibly fast and can therefore overtake local lawns. 
  • Sod webworms: The sod webworm is mostly a problem in its larval stage when it ravenously eats grass to fuel its metamorphosis into a flying adult. While adults don’t damage lawns, they do lay eggs in yards to have their offspring close to food sources. 

Protecting your yard from these destructive pests is all about seeking out effective lawn pest control. Coastal Lawn and Pest is here to help you with all you need to keep your turf looking green and healthy, so contact us today to learn more about the common pests we protect against.
