Residential Barrier Spray Applications
Synthetic Barrier Spray Application
for maximum protection, Our technicians will treat your property approximately every 14- 21 days throughout the season. Mosquito breeding season starts when the weather is above 50 degrees, usually around April and continues throughout October. A mosquitoes breeding cycle increases as the weather becomes increasingly hotter and more humid. The synthetic barrier spray treatment is applied to the perimeter of your property as well as common use areas such as decks, swing sets, pools and patios. Once the treatment is applied, it will kill and repel mosquitoes and ticks instantly. Once the treatment is dry , approximately thirty minutes, your yard is ready for mosquito free use.
All of the barrier spray products we use are synthetic forms of pyrethrins called pyrethroids. Pyrethrins are insecticides that are derived from a naturally occurring compound called pyrethrum found in the Chrysanthemum flower. Pyrethroids are used in numerous commercial products that consumers use to control insects as household pet insecticides, pet shampoos and sprays and lice shampoos applied directly to the scalp. The standard barrier spray treatment is effective on other pests such as fleas, ticks, flies and ants.
All Natural Barrier Spray Application
As an alternative to our synthetic treatment, The Nutty Mosquito offers an All Natural mosquito and tick solution. We use a combination of all natural control products that consist of natural plant extracts and essential botanical oils such as garlic and rosemary. These all natural products reduce and repel mosquitoes and ticks. As an extra bonus, our all natural product reduces and repels other insects as well. The All Natural solution has less adhesive properties than the synthetic spray. Because of this, we will reapply each treatment approximately every 10-14 days to deter new mosquitoes and provide the best protection.
At The Nutty Mosquito we protect against ticks too! Ticks can carry many diseases such a Lyme disease and Rock Mountain Fever which can be contracted not only by use but by our pets. Ticks are hard to detect given their size and attach firmly to their host while feeding. Ticks thrive in high grass areas, leaves and wooded areas in and around your property.
