ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Lawn maintenance companies say unusual weather has made their busy spring season even busier.        

Tobey Cox of American Lawn and Landscaping says lots of customers are calling because of out-of-control weeds and fire ants in their yards.     

Cox says cool temperatures and heavy rain produced perfect breeding patterns for both.  

"The rain is so tremendous this year the ants and the weeds are coming up stronger than I've ever seen in the past 15 years I've been in the business," said Cox.

Cox said his company will treat your yard for both weeds and insects for $80 an acre a month.      

He said his phone is ringing off the hook with new customers looking for help.
