Common Tall Grass Nuisances

1. Mice. Tall grass gives vermin a place to hide and breed, eventually they find their way into homes and create quite the disturbance there. Not to mention, rodents usually carry disease.

2. Snakes. When there are mice present, it usually means that snakes aren’t that far behind. Once the snakes eat all the mice, it means that they’ll now be the ones living in the tall grasses, or worse, your home.

3. Unsightly. A common complaint about tall grasses or grass that fellow neighbors may deem as “overgrown” is that it’s ugly and shows to your community that you don’t care. This may attract crime and vandalism.
