Weeds

Weeds

There are two basic types of weeds that appear in lawns:  Broadleaf & grassy weeds.  Below are a few of the most common weeds in treasure valley turf.

Dandelions

Dandelions are broadleaf weeds with multiple spear-like leaves, tell-tale yellow flower, and seed head that produces parachute like seeds that float easily along the wind.  Probably the most prolific weed in treasure valley lawns, dandelions compete with your turf grass for vital nutrients and sunlight.

Crabgrass

Crabgrass is an annual grassy weed, meaning it germinates and dies within one growing season.  Crabgrass germinates from seed in April-May and thrive in the heat of the summer.  Crabgrass grows low to the ground, the stems spread out like the legs of a spider.  Adult crabgrass produces seed, and is then killed by typically the first hard frost of the year.  Seeds survive the winter, and the whole process starts over again.

Our Customers Love Us!

See what they are saying.

  • We loved the services Barrier Lawn and Pest Control offered! They are great to work with. We will definitely use them again when needed! I would highly recommend them to any of my friends. Danielle L.
  • A representative from Barrier came to our door to sell their service. I do not usually select businesses this way, but the young man who met me at my door was very professional, knowledgeable, and most importantly, not pushy for the sale. He informed me of his services, as well as the special for new clients. He also showed me that Barrier was an accredited BBB business. I did some more research after he left and we chose to proceed with them. They came, cleaned off the whole outside of the house including all bee's nests and spider webs. In the first treatment period we found a couple spiders on different occasions. We called Barrier and they came and retreated for free, three more times in that first period, just because we saw 1 spider. After our second quarterly treatment we never had another bug. It was wonderful! When my husband and I moved we had Barrier begin treating our new home and have yet to see a bug. It is a wonderful way to live and an excellent business to support. Rachel C.
  • I have used Barrier Lawn and Pest Control services for two years and will continue to use them. They always arrive on time, and have great customer service. I have always been satisfied with their work. Sean M.
  • We have been customers of Barrier for the last couple of years and will not be leaving anytime soon! They have always gone above and beyond to meet our needs. They work with your schedule and are very accommodating. They provide great services at very reasonable prices. We are loyal Barrier customers and will continue to recommend them to everyone! Jessica H.
  • Your representative was very courteous and did a great job. I have noticed some spider activity since he sprayed. That may only be because it woke them up.

  • Barrier Pest is great and I plan to stay with their service for a long time. The technicians are professional and friendly and are great at getting the job done. Clint L.
  • I had a Major gopher problem in the narrow garden strip in front of my Nampa business. Not just any gopher problem; these gophers were criminally insane, mutants on steroids! Ive never seen such a small area so completely torn up! Barrier to the rescue. They arrived on time, the price was inexpensive, especially compared to the damage! One application of whatever magic stuff they have did the trick. THEY'RE DEAD! (You cant see it but I'm smiling about that!) Need to WHACK-A-MOLE? Barrier is your guy! Peter C.
  • I live in Nampa and have been with Barrier just about the time they started business in the Treasure Valley. I am very pleased with the service I have received from them and have recommended them to some of my neighbors. When I have had problems with ants or had requested a visit because of other pest control problems they took care of it. And when the ants needed another visit Barrier took care of the problem, no extra charge. Ivan M.
  • This company is awesome. I have never written an online review in my life, but the service and results we've received from Barrier Lawn & Pest is so impressive that I was compelled to do so. We had a horrible spider, earwig and ant problem at our new house and the results of this service are that they were instantly gone. No more spiders, no more earwigs, no more ants and the best unintended consequence - no more cleaning spider webs from around the outside of the house! The guy who took our calls was amazing - no pressure, just extremely knowledgable and accomodating. I did not intend this as a long-term service, in fact I didn't even think it was warranted but my husband set it up without my knowledge. However, between the results in our home (no more looking in my shoes before I slip them on!) and the customer service and appreciation for our business we continue to receive, we're now long-term customers. Billie J.
  • I hardly ever do this but I was so thoroughly impressed with the level of service I received. For the first time I ended up with a Mouse problem in my garage. I called **** at Barrier. The next morning at the scheduled time in fact a few minutes early They arrived very clean cut and professional. They asked lots of questions then did a great job of explaining what they were going to do to eliminate the problem. They totally went above what they should have and totally eliminated my problem I have no doubt that the mice are gone. Very thorough and very professional I would have no problem recommending them to anyone
  • The company is reliable and is complete in their services to our yard and home. Douglas S.

  • Barrier Lawn and Pest is very professional, always on time, thorough, and always there to answer a phone call. I highly recommend them. Thank you very much! Kim
  • I've been using Barrier Lawn and Pest for almost 4 years now and don't have a single negative word to say about this company. Just like they promise, they answer the phones, return messages, and are always prompt. Everyone I've dealt with has been polite, cheerful, and considerate. At our last service, Ronald took the time to explain to me and my children the difference between yellow jackets, wasps, and hornets. He even showed us the difference so we could fully understand! Barrier Lawn & Pest has earned my complete loyalty and I highly recommend them!!! Brandy
  • I recently decided to use Barrier Lawn and Pest services as I became acquainted with their services through my place of work. The initial contact with Mike Dean was personable and informative. Scheduling of the service was also very accommodating as I was not given a 2-4 hour window as I had experienced with other companies. The technician arrived on time and reviewed the service with my wife before beginning. Upon completion, my wife was given the company's contact information in case we had any future questions. This experience was very pleasant and we would recommend Barrier's services to any friend or neighbor. Bryce
  • I work in the Home Health Industry. Doing so there was a couple who had limited finance's and had carpenter ants in their house. I talked to a friend who called to find out if the ant traps you get in the hardware store would work. In talking with **** at Barrier he said he would go out free of charge and take care of the problem. When he arrived not only did he put the traps out he also sprayed around the whole house upon the gentleman request. **** and Barrier went above and beyond. Please if you need pest or lawn service use Barrier as they give back to the community. Thanks again to Barrier and a huge thanks to ****. Dee P.

  • We had a very positive experience with Barrier Lawn and Pest control. They were very professional, prompt, and had wonderful customer service. We will always use them in the future. Amanda M.
  • My wife and I have used Barrier's services for years, and we've always been greatly pleased with their work. Not only do they do an outstanding job with pest control and the routine maintenance of our lawn--and at a reasonable cost, I might add--but they are also willing and able to take care of our other little landscaping and sprinkler-system needs. And on the very rare occasions when things don't quite go according to plan, they accept full responsibility and quickly rectify any problems. How many companies can you say that about these days? Michael & Wendy
  • I hired Barrier Lawn and Pest a few years ago for pest control services. My experience has been nothing short of outstanding. The technicians show up on time, present themselves well, and do the job the right way the first time. I would recommend Barrier to anyone! Jeff R.
  • Well at first I thought we were going to have to call you back there were so many still around. However the spray and the bomb in the crawl space was beginning to take affect and we still see a few here and there but not like before the application. will see how it is as the weather becomes warmer. Thank you very much. Wayne B.

  • We have been customers of Barrier for several years now and have been very, very happy with their work and their customer service. They show up when they say they will and are always pleasant to deal with. There was one particular time that I still had some wasps a week after they came out, so I called and let them know. Someone was at my door the next day to take care of the problem. They couldn't find any wasp nests on my house, so they went to the house next door which was vacant at the time and took care of the wasps there so that they wouldn't bother my kids when they were playing outside. Amazing customer service! I have recommended them to several friends who are also pleased with their service. Audrey M.
