Although our traditional products are EPA registered and used worldwide, we know some customers won’t settle for anything less than 100% green. We understand and enjoy providing our customers the best possible green mosquito, tick, flea and outdoor pest control.
Although our natural solution is not as effective as our traditional solution, most residential customers with a moderate mosquito, tick, or outdoor pest problem will enjoy a 65 – 80 percent reduction. To guarantee optimum control, we treat every 2 weeks. That’s a whole lot less swatting!
Our natural solution is blended in-house using only steam distilled essential oils and a surfactant (necessary to blend oils and water). We work to improve our product every year and take great pride in our blend’s continual improvement.
Unlike our traditional treatment, our natural solution works by both repelling and “jamming” incoming mosquitoes and pests. Mosquitoes in particular have a very keen ability to detect CO2, octenol, and other pheromones. The residual scent left after a treatment acts as both a repellent and odor mask, “jamming” the mosquitos’ ability to find their targets.
A. After we treat, there will be a moderate botanical scent for around 2-4 hours and a very slight smell present for up to 24 hours. Most of our customers are indifferent to it and many enjoy the sweet scent of green!
A. Yes! In addition to mosquitoes and ticks, our natural solution will also help repel and control fleas, chiggers, nats, flies, spiders, certain ants, and other outdoor pests.
A. An essential oil is a concentrated hydrophobic liquid comprised of volatile aroma compounds derived from plants. Ok, Ok so that was a bit dense – more simply they are natural oils taken from plants. Essential oils are commonly used in scented products, soaps, and food flavorings. As delicious as they can be, we select ours for their mosquito repelling properties.
A. Cedar wood, Lemon Eucalyptus, and Garlic are examples of a few. Lemon Eucalyptus is the only natural topical mosquito repellent recommended by the CDC, with DEET and picardin being the others. As we have worked hard to perfect our natural outdoor pest control, we cannot disclose our complete formula. We do, however, guarantee that all oils are 100% natural.
A. We use a professional grade backpack mist blower to treat most homes. Our mist blower produces a finely atomized wet mist that forms an even perimeter of protection. Using a mist blower also allows us to reach the underside of leaves, under decks, and into dense foliage – some of mosquito’s favorite daytime resting sites.
