Weeds

Weeds in Arizona can be meddlesome.

They often sprout out of small cracks, rocks, and in between flowers. So many weeds can become a problem, but with Horn Pest Management, we can create the best action plan for you!
Termites are often mistaken for ants, but the two have several key differences. Termites have straight antennae, while ants have elbowed antennae. Termites also have a uniform body shape, while ants have a narrow waist. Finally, termites’ wings are all the same size, while ant wings are different (the front wings are more significant than the back wings).

If you think you may have a termite problem, it is essential to contact Horn Pest Management for an inspection and treatment. Do not try to treat the problem yourself, as this can often make things worse.

Types of Weeds in Arizona

Bermuda Grass

This type of grass is found in most lawns throughout the state. It has a thick thatch that helps it to resist drought and heat. However, this also makes it difficult to control. If you have this type of weed on your lawn, you’ll need to be diligent in removing it.

Dandelions

These are one of the most common types of weeds in Arizona. They have a deep taproot that makes them difficult to pull out. Unfortunately, they also spread quickly, so you’ll need to be careful not to let them go to seed.

Crabgrass

This type of weed is common in both cool and warm season lawns. It has a shallow root system that makes it easy to pull out. However, it can quickly spread and take over your property if you’re not careful.

Russian Thistle (Tumble Weeds)

This type of weed is expected in the desert areas of Arizona. They have a deep taproot that makes them difficult to pull out. Unfortunately, they also spread quickly, so you’ll need to be careful not to let them go to seed.

Salt Sedar Weeds

This type of weed is expected in the desert regions of Arizona. They have a deep taproot that makes them difficult to pull out. Unfortunately, they also spread quickly, so you’ll need to be careful not to let them go to seed.

This type of weed is common in both cool and warm season lawns. It has a shallow root system that makes it easy to pull out. However, it can quickly spread and take over your property if you’re not careful.

Overgrown: Horn Pest Management is Here to Help

Weeds can be intrusive and aggressive and can cause problems like suffocating your yard. In addition, they can become an issue with the Homeowners Association and worsen your family’s allergies. Horn Pest Management uses various techniques to eliminate the weeds, so you don’t have to!

Lifecycle of a Weed

The life cycle of a weed starts with a seed. The seed can come from many places, such as your neighbor’s yard, the wind, or animals. Once the source finds its way to your property, it will sit dormant in the soil until the conditions are suitable for germination.

Once the conditions are met, such as temperature and moisture, the seed will germinate, and a small plant will emerge from the soil.

The plant will then grow and mature, produce flowers and create seeds of its own. Once the seeds are mature, they will be spread in several ways, such as by the wind, animals, or people.

The cycle then starts all over again.

Horn Pest Management can help break the cycle of weeds on your property! We can do this by applying pre-emergent and post-emergent herbicides.

What We Do

Horn Pest Management can help with your weed growth battle. We can create service plans to keep your home or commercial location weed-free. Not to mention a requirement to be weed-free in many Homeowners Associations.

There are two significant components in weed management: Pre-Emergent and Post-Emergent applications. Seeds are constantly being blown into your property, and very little moisture is needed for these seedlings to germinate.

Pre-Emergent applications stop the seedlings from germinating and emerging from the soil. Other environmental factors affect the performance of a pre-emergent barrier as well. Soil acidity, large amounts of rainfall, and even the physical disturbance of the pre-emergent barrier will all contribute to this product being less than 100% effective in preventing unwanted plant growth. As often as this is the case, Horn Pest Management also offers post-emergent weed control services.

Post-Emergent applications are applied to any existing weeds that have germinated and emerged from the soil. Ideally, these applications are timed for when the plant is still tiny, allowing our professional-grade products to arrest the plant’s growth and kill it, thereby stopping it from producing seeds. Unfortunately, a fast-growing weed is capable of developing sources to sow within just days of its germinating, which inevitably leads to more weeds. While post-emergent treatments are highly effective, many factors can negatively affect the ideal performance of any post-emergent products.

Horn Pest Management can design a treatment plan that fits each customer’s expectations and budget. Service warranties are offered along with any annual weed management package.
