Tired of mosquitoes ruining your time outside? The best control is achieved through a 3 pronged P.E.S.T. approach, which is safe for you, your family, and pets:
ST– Self Treatment
Prevention – Stop larvae from becoming biting adults.
Mosquito Dunks and Bits – This biological control releases the Bacillus thuringiensis i. (Bt i) strain of bacteria, which is harmless to pets, birds or aquatic life but kills mosquito larvae. Sprinkle in areas that stay moist, such as under a dripping faucet, in rain gutters, beneath shrubs, or in standing water. Dunks are a solid form that can be used for ponds, creeks, water features or bird baths.
Environment ‐ Treat the area where adults fly.
Spartan’s Mosquito Eradicator is a natural alternative to other lures. Add warm water & shake, and a fermentation process causes death by carbon dioxide. 2 tubes cover an acre, and control lasts up to 90 days.
Cutter’s Natural Outdoor Fogger kills on contact with great‐smelling lemongrass oil, and is good for treating larger outdoor areas where kids and pets play.
Murphy’s Mosquito Repellent Incense Sticks or Cones are infused with natural herbal oils, and have a pleasant fragrance so they can be used in patios and seating areas. Cones last about 24 minutes, and sticks 2 hours. The Candles and Tea Lights contain the same oils, and both bring light and repel mosquitoes right where you need it.
Cedar Warrior and Mosquito Beater – Broadcast these red cedar granules with added cedar oil or use the hose‐end liquid spray to repel not just mosquitoes, but also flies and gnats throughout your landscape.
Skeeter Screen Products – The Patio Egg and Patio Candle are locally made, and good for use in entertaining areas where guests gather in the garden.
Self Treatment – Protect yourself and your family.
Skeeter Screen Personal Spray contains the same essential plant oils in their other products, and can be applied directly to the skin.
Murphy’s Lemon Eucalyptus Oil Insect Repellent Spray has 30% oil of lemon eucalyptus, can be sprayed on skin and clothing, and repels insects for up to 6 hours. The Mosquito Repellent Balm is great for on-the-go mosquito protection, and the Bite Relief Soothing Balm soothes skin when you do get bitten.
