The mosquito is the deadliest insect, and the number one cause of human deaths in the world today. These deaths are caused by the bites of female mosquitoes, as males are harmless and do not bite. The female mosquito bites because it requires a supply of blood in order to reproduce. The saliva of a female mosquito not only causes an itchy rash, but is responsible for spreading many infectious diseases. A single mosquito bite can make you feel very sick, and can result in malaria, the West Nile virus, the Zika virus, yellow fever, eastern equine encephalitis, and more. Some of these infections may even result in death.
In order for mosquitoes to survive, they require water (salt or fresh), above-freezing temperatures, and blood. The most common deterrents used against mosquitos are bug sprays and citronella candles or torches. These remedies do not actually get rid of the mosquitoes, but only prevent them from biting you. Throw away the bug spray, insect zappers, citronella, and propane magnets and obtain a mosquito-free backyard by hiring our professional mosquito control technicians to spray a fine mist of plant based solution on your yard. We do not use any chemicals, but rather a custom, proven mix of plant oils designed to keep mosquitoes away. Our spray is pesticide-free and completely safe for you, your pets, and your plants.
