      What other insects will this effect?

      What other insects will this affect?

      Arrow

      We use an insecticide so other insects present when and where we spray may be impacted.

      However, our formula was specifically engineered for mosquitoes so it won’t repel any other insects as it does mosquitoes.

      Will the product kill plants, vegetables, or beneficial insects in my yard?

      Will the product kill plants, vegetables, or beneficial insects in my yard?

      Arrow
      We are incredibly conscious of what we do and realize how it can impact our environment if applied erroneously. That’s why our technicians are trained to recognize:
      • Plants
      • Vegetables
      • Beneficial insects like pollinators
      Will your product work after storms?

      Will your product work after storms?

      Arrow
      Yes, we have specifically engineered our formula to outlast storms. With a special polymer layer that provides weather resistance, our formula will remain effective.
      Is there any environment you cannot treat?

      Is there any environment you cannot treat?

      Arrow
      Yes, there are some areas we won’t spray to protect the surrounding environments. Pools, natural water sources, vegetable gardens, and artificial water sources complete the list.

      Because water could easily spread the insecticides, we never directly apply our product to it. However, the rest of the property can still be sprayed and it will drastically reduce the population of mosquitoes.
      Does this product work on all mosquitoes and ticks?

      Does this product work on all mosquitoes and ticks?

      Arrow
      Yes, we target aspects of mosquitoes and ticks that don’t change from species to species.

      The killing and repelling aspects of our product will work on any species of mosquitoes and ticks.
      Will the product harm my pets or children?

      Will the product harm my pets or children?

      Arrow
      Pets and children should be inside during each application. However, they can re-enter the property once the product has dried, roughly 10-15 minutes.

      At that point, there are no restrictions until the next application.
      When can I start to see the effects?

      When can I start to see the effects?

      Arrow

      Every yard is different but you should notice a dramatic reduction within 24-48 hours of the initial spray.

      With each subsequent treatment, the results continue to improve, allowing you to enjoy time outside without being chased in by swarms of mosquitoes.


      Why do we see more mosquitoes after it has rained?

      Why do we see more mosquitoes after it has rained?

      Arrow
      Mosquitoes are more abundant after it rains because standing water is where they breed.

      Adult, female mosquitoes will lay their eggs in water. Once fully submerged, the countdown begins and the eggs can hatch in as little as a few days.
