Fourth Annual National Inspect and Protect Week Offers Homeowners Outdoor Tips to Prevent Harmful Pests and Lawn Damage
WASHINGTON, Oct. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The fourth annual National Inspect and Protect Week presented by RISE (Responsible Industry for a Sound Environment)® aims to help homeowners protect their homes against unwanted pests and keep outdoor areas a safer place for families to play this fall. When cooler temperatures make being outside more of a chore than a choice, homeowners often take a break from lawn care maintenance, leaving their lawns more susceptible to pests.
"While taking care of your outdoor space can require time, effort and braving the elements, the reward is seeing how a well-maintained lawn contributes to greater quality of life and enjoyment of your home," said Jason Henderson, associate professor of turfgrass and soil sciences at the University of Connecticut.
As an expert in maintaining athletic fields that receive regular wear and tear, Henderson knows firsthand that taking a proactive approach to lawn care maintenance keeps outdoor spaces looking their best and makes them a safer place to play come springtime. He offers the following five tips homeowners can do to help manage their lawn during the cool weather season:
Along with Henderson's top tips, RISE encourages homeowners to practice an easy-to-follow acronym to protect against unwanted indoor pests throughout the fall: INSPECT (INvestigate, Study, Prepare, Eliminate, Clean and Treat).
