All of our traditional pest control products are EPA registered and used worldwide. But we realize that some customers won’t settle for anything less than 100% green. We completely understand and are proud to provide our customers with the best possible green mosquito, tick, flea, and outdoor pest control you can find.
Our all natural solution is slightly less effective in comparison to our traditional solution, but most residential customers with a moderate mosquito, tick, or outdoor pest problem will enjoy a 65–80% reduction in pest activity. To guarantee optimum control, we treat every 2 weeks instead of 3 weeks. Ultimately resulting in a whole lot less swatting that's great for the environment!
Blended in-house, our natural solution is made using only steam distilled essential oils and a surfactant (necessary to blend oils and water). We work constantly to improve our product and take great pride in our blend’s continual improvement.
Unlike our traditional barrier treatment, our all natural solution works by repelling bugs and also “jamming” incoming mosquitoes and pests. Mosquitoes in particular are able to detect CO2, octenol, and other pheromones. A treatment acts as both a repellent and odor mask, “jamming” the mosquitoes’ ability to locate targets.
A. After we apply the all natural treatment, there will be a moderate botanical scent for approximately 2-4 hours, and a very slight smell present for up to 24 hours. Most of our customers are indifferent to the scent, and many even enjoy the sweet smell of green!
A. Yes! In addition to mosquitoes and ticks, our all natural treatment solution also assists in repelling and controlling fleas, chiggers, gnats, 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.
