Tick & Mosquito Control

Goodbye bug bites!

There is nothing better than enjoying an afternoon with your family outside… until the mosquitoes, ticks, and other bugs show up.

Organic Tick and Mosquito Control is made from a safe all-natural cedar formula that gives you the benefit of a bug spray, repellant, and fogger all-in-one at an inexpensive cost. Plus, it’s safe for kids and pets, unlike traditional bug sprays.

Why treat your property?

Protect against bug bites. Protect family and pets from mosquito and tick-borne diseases. Reclaim and enjoy your outdoor space.

How does it work?

The cedar oil acts as a pheromone interruption agent that impairs their mental capacity and is the residual repellent for up to 30 days depending on saturation. The cedar also causes the insects exo-skeleton to dehydrate.  The fatty soap acts as a sticker to the insect.

What insects does it affect?

Our spray controls ticks, mosquitoes, fleas, flies, gnats, mites, and other unwanted insects. It will not harm beneficial sight driven insects such as bees, butterflies, and earthworms.

Is it harmful around children or animals?

Cedar oil is non-toxic.  It is safe for kids and pets. Yards can be used within 30 minutes or more of spraying.  Drying time may vary depending on humidity.

What areas are sprayed?

All shrubs/ornamental trees, vegetation, leafy areas, grassy areas, wood piles, rock walls, under decks, under the eaves of roof, up to 30 feet of wooded areas, and anywhere on property where it is shaded and moist.

How often is it applied?

Monthly. April through November.  If you only want applications during the summer months you spend outside, let us know. Special Event one-time spraying is also available.  More frequent applications (every 3 weeks) are sometimes recommended depending on your property.

How quickly does it work?

Effectiveness begins from 5 minutes to 24 hours, depending on the insect.

Does it cause discoloration when sprayed?

No, it does not cause discoloration and is safe for sidewalks, foundations, swing sets, patios, etc.

Is it 100% Effective?

Our spray program is designed to significantly minimize your tick and mosquito population. We can not guarantee total elimination since unwanted insects come from many sources that we cannot prevent.

Facts about Mosquitos

  • Females are usually larger than males, and are the only ones that “bite” humans.
  • The female sucks the blood of humans or animals to enable the production of eggs.
  • Mosquitoes are most active in the evening until dawn. They can also be active in cool, shaded areas during the day.
  • Reducing moisture – including flooded areas, standing water, and untreated, stagnant ponds – around your home can make a significant difference in mosquito populations.
  • Culex mosquitoes carry encephalitis, filariasis, and West Nile virus. This mosquito is most common in the Northeast U.S.
  • The West Nile Virus was detected in Rockland County mosquitos in June 2015. The first human case was confirmed in Sept 2015.
  • The disease-carrying Asian Tiger Mosquito was identified in Rockland in 2011. Unlike other mosquitoes, it is an aggressive daytime biter.

Facts about Ticks

  • Ticks live in tall grass or shrubs. They do not jump or fly, although they may drop from their perch and fall onto a host.
  • Ticks can live as long as 200 days without food or water and they can live from 2 months to 2 years, depending on the species.
  • Ticks survive by eating blood from their hosts – humans, birds, reptiles, and wild and domestic mammals.
  • Ticks can pass infections from one host to the next, including humans.
  • Some ticks carry pathogens that can cause human disease, including Lyme disease, Anaplasmosis, Babesiosis, Tularemia, Ehrlichiosis, Rickettsiosis, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Tickborne relapsing fever, and 364D Rickettsiosis.
  • Never remove a tick with your bare hand. Instead, using tweezers, grasp the tick close to the skin and pull gently.
