It is no secret that our pollinators are in jeopardy. Big time. I know my friends who garden often note that their backyard gardens just do not produce the way they used to. This is because we have so few pollinators – especially if you live in metropolitan area!
The pesticides that we use day in and day out to kill annoying insects are directly related to the struggles the pollinators face.
Chemical pesticides, including Pyrethroids and Nicotinoids, are proven to have negative effects on bees (read their labels!) and can cause Colony Collapse Disorder, in spite of what some misting companies and pest control people say.
My products are not just natural, based on essential oils, but our products affect the mosquitoes by aggravating five different receptors on the mosquito antennae. This is why our products are more effective AND why the mosquitoes will not build up resistance. We don’t kill anything! Your backyard pollinators are safe with Mosquito Steve.
My yard sprays lasts ten days to 2 weeks. Misting lasts up to 6 hours. Yard sprays remove the landing, hiding and resting places of the mosquitoes; it forces them into the air and they are not strong flyers. That should send them next door or to an area not protected. NOTHING sprayed on the yard, chemical or natural, keeps mosquitoes from flying in! That is why we need misting. Misting will keep flying insects away.
The mosquito season in North Texas is generally from April through October and will be here before we know it. We work with a variety of reputable and service-oriented partners. Call today to get your misting system installed in time for spring.
