If your household budget includes paying a lawn maintenance service and a pest control service every month, now is a great time to take matters into your own hands and save some green. When you consider that:
- Your lawn service can run $200 a month or more. Replace that expense with some weed and insect control, such as Spectricide, in early spring and routine maintenance, you can take over this task and save nearly about $1,600 between March and October
- If your home is pest-free but you're using a pest control service, you can save about $100 a month by performing these tasks yourself. There are several, easy to use products on the market for household insects.
