How does the treatment work?
The treatments work by effectively eliminating all adult mosquitoes onsite and by leaving a residue on the foliage and and vegetation that we spray to provide up to 3 weeks of complete control.
What is included in the treatment process?
As a part of service we do four key things each time: *1–assess the environment & identify the target pest (usually mosquitoes) *2–identify and mitigate potential breeding sites *3–apply larvicide to any breeding sites that cannot be simply eliminated w/out treatment (i.e. emptying any vessel holding water) *4–provide thorough treatment of all adult mosquito harborage areas by misting the bushes, ground cover, trees, throughout the lower canopy branches as well as lightly spraying turf areas as needed. Undergrowth, wood lines and dense areas of native vegetation are also sprayed. Treatments vary at each individual property based on landscape, environment, exposure, etc…
Do I need an onsite consultation?
No. But if preferred an onsite consultation can be arranged prior to or in conjunction with the first scheduled treatment.
What do you do about standing water?
We use a system of integrated pest management strategies with all of our services. We eliminate the standing water (empty the vessel) or treat w/ Bti Briquets or Altosid Pro-G
How long does the service take?
The average application time is about 30 minutes. Larger properties may take up to an hour or more.
Does anyone need to be home?
No—provided we have access to any fenced areas and domestic animals can be kept indoors our clients are not required to be home. You will receive notification via email 24- 48 hours prior to each scheduled appointment (unless otherwise requested). After each service the technician will leave a courtesy card indicating the date and time services were completed
How often does my property need service?
We recommend treatment every 21 days with our conventional products but also offer a bi-weekly program. The Organic Compliant Products are best suited for use on a bi-weekly schedule. Please contact us for a free consultation or >>click here<< to review our service options.
What products are you using? What is in the products you are using?
We use several products based on the preferences of our clients. Product selection is also based on the needs of each individual property depending on the exposure, environment, target pest and existing conditions. We offer a conventional spray that is both highly effective and extremely long lasting, but we also offer an organic spray that is environmentally safe and effective.
What does “organic compliant” mean?
Organic Compliant means product adheres to the rules and regulations set forth by NOP (National Organics Program) and is safe for use in and around food crops & maintains organic compliance on properties where that is a requirement.
Does the organic compliant product work as well as the conventional product?
Yes. The organic compliant product is a labeled pesticide designed to actively kill adult mosquitoes. It will leave a residue to provide lasting protection up to 14 days. It does break down faster than the conventional product so is best suited for bi-weekly service. Our conventional product offers the same active-kill protection with a better residual barrier. Typically effective up to 21 days.
What’s the “hybrid program”?
We use both organic compliant and conventional products. Organic compliant spray is applied to more sensitive areas (frequented by people and pets). Conventional spray is applied in non-contact, less used or wooded areas of the property.
Can my edible garden be treated?
If absolutely necessary the organic compliant product is labeled safe for use in such areas.
Is it safe for my landscaping, plants trees and ornamentals?
Yes. Both the organic & conventional products are safe for the plants in your landscape. We do not spray open blooms or flowering perennials and annuals because they usually get good light and attract beneficial insects and pollinators.
Are both products safe for me, my kids, pets, ponds, chickens, wildlife, etc.?
Yes all of our products and services are safe for people, pets and other life in the area. We REQUIRE the following dry times before resuming normal outdoor activities. Conventional spray: 45min-1hr. Organic compliant spray: 15-30min ***dry times vary***
Will my neighbors or their pets and property be affected by the spray?
No. Our solutions are water-based. With proper application the products will not drift.
Is there any smell associated with the products? When will it subside?
The organic compliant product does produce a sweet minty scent that lasts approximately one day. The conventional product is odor free.
Does treatment get rid of other pests (i.e. fleas, ticks, ants, whiteflies)
