Most frequent questions and answers
Yes, We decided using natural products would be safer for your family, the environment and our employees.
Natural products do not persist in the environment like synthetic chemicals do. This is good as they have less long-term negative effect on the environment. Our products have a residual life of around 2-3 weeks depending on rainfall. For greatest effectiveness we apply every 2 weeks.
Our products are derived from natural plants such as, Clove oil, cedar oil, lemongrass oil, Chrysanthemum flowers, neem tree oil. They act on contact to kill as well as repel mosquitoes and ticks.
No one can guarantee 100% control, as mosquitoes can fly onto your property. Our service reduces the population of mosquitoes and ticks by 90% in your yard thus reducing your exposure. If you are not satisfied at any time or notice an increased population of either pest. We will retreat your yard free of charge.
Because we use plant essential oils you will notice an herbal smell when we treat for mosquitoes and a cedar smell when we treat for ticks. Both smells will dissipate within a couple of hours, but remain extremely strong to mosquitoes and ticks for extended periods of time.
Although are products are safe, we recommend waiting until they are dry before reentry, about 30 minutes.
