I recently received a piece of mail a friend forwarded to me that was from another new entry into the mosquito control business. It amazes me how creative some of these guys get in order to sway people to try their products. This one, makes it sound like their product is safe, even though it is not. It gives the idea that your kids can run around the yard without shoes and not be subjected to any possible harm this chemical could cause.
This is absolutely not true.
If you read on their web site, they use Pyrethrins. It is not easy to find this information, but it is there. As some of you know, Pyrethrins and Permethrin are NOT considered safe by the EPA and not allowed to use the word safe in their advertising or labeling.
Please, before you try another Mosquito Jeff, Mavis the Mosquito Beater or Shoeless Mosquito product or service, ask to see the label of the product they are spraying. Ask for the ingredients. Ask if it is safe on kids and pets.
Remember, most of these guys don’t understand that harsh chemicals are not required to protect your family from mosquitoes.
