Who doesn’t love a summers eve BBQ or lounging on a patio by a pool? We bet you do, but unfortunately so do mosquitoes. A quiet evening outdoors, or worse, a party you are hosting can be thwarted by these uninvited guests. We have the solution to get the most out of the time we have to enjoy our outdoor spaces!

A perimeter treatment will keep the harmful pesticides out of your home and discourage nuisance insects from finding their way through cracks, sills, and windows.
Much more than an annoyance, these insects pose a serious health risk. Nuisance insects can transmit diseases between animals and humans alike. In 2014 alone West Nile Virus spread to 47 states, infecting 2,122 people. Eastern Equine Encephalitis Virus (EEE) is a serious threat linked to mosquitoes with a 33% mortality rate and typically results in significant brain damage. These are bird virus’ that can affect humans unlike the Chikungunya virus which is primarily carried by people and transmitted by bites. In Massachusetts we primarily see Deer or Dog ticks, both of which can transmit diseases like Lyme Disease, Babesiosis, and Anaplasmosis & Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. Properties abutting heavily wooded areas and those with an abundance of trees are prone to high tick populations.
Standing water, or anywhere water can gather, as well as certain plant species attract insects. If you have a pool you are undoubtedly familiar with nuisance insects attempting to ruin an evening swim. Our trained professionals can identify and target trouble spots around a property to reduce the presence and breeding of insects. These areas are treated directly using backpack mounted sprayers, enabling precise control and eliminating ‘fogging’. As the product is comprised of only organic ingredients, play areas & outdoor kitchens are safe from harmful chemicals.
Offering over 2 weeks of protection with each application; our organic solution can be a great way to reclaim your outdoor space for the duration of summer or simply to ensure a pest-free special event like a graduation party or cook-out.
