Is it safe for my kids and pets? What about plants and ponds?
Absolutely. Our main barrier spray chemicals are synthetic forms of pyrethrins called pyrethroids. Pyrethrins are insecticides that are derived from the extract of chrysanthemum flowers. Pyrethroids are used in numerous commercial products that consumers use to control insects such as household insecticides, pet shampoos and sprays, and even lice shampoos. We spray this chemical on shrubs, low lying trees, mulch beds, etc. As it is a plant derivative, it will not harm plants. All chemicals we use are EPA approved.
You, your children and your pets should not be outside during the application of the spray treatment, but you may return to your outdoor fun after allowing 30 minutes for the treatment to dry.
How long does it last?
Each application will provide 85% reduction of mosquito bites for up to 30 days.
What happens if it rains?
The product needs to have dried on the plants for 30 minutes at which time rain will not have any effect on the treatment. If you are on our seasonal program, service calls are free between applications if you feel the rain has affected your mosquito control.
How much does it cost?
Pricing is based on the square footage of your lawn. We will accurately measure your property via online satellite imagery and provide you with pricing for one-time and seasonal spray options.
How effective is the treatment?
The treatment is very effective at reducing biting mosquitoes by 85% for up to 30 days after treatment.
Does anyone need to be home for treatments?
No. We can apply the treatment without anyone home. We will need to know if you keep pets outside or if you have a locked gate. If so, we can call ahead before treatments to let you know that we are scheduled for treatments. We will provide the treatment, place a sign in the front lawn, and leave an invoice along with treatment information on the front door.
