If you prefer to stay on the greener side of things and not use any synthetic chemicals, Mosquito Squad has you covered. All of our products are EPA-registered but we do offer an all-natural barrier treatment formula. Comprised of essential oils like lemon eucalyptus, cedar wood, garlic, and a few others, our all-natural formula is applied the same way as our traditional barrier treatment. With a professional grade mist blower backpack, we treat all the areas of your yard where mosquitoes like to spend time, mainly foliage, the undersides of leaves, and even under your deck.
Our all-natural formula eliminates mosquitoes and ticks on contact, and then continues as a repellent for up to 14 days. Because it is made up of essential oils, it has a slight botanical fragrance that dissipates after a few hours to the human nose. Bugs, especially mosquitoes, have very keen abilities to detect CO2, octenol, and other pheromones. The residual scent left from one of our all-natural treatments acts as both a repellent and an odor mask, “jamming” the mosquito's’ ability to find their targets.
By treating the areas that we do, there’s no need for you to apply anything to yourself when you’re outside in your own yard, and you’ll have the most highly effective all-natural mosquito and tick control solution available. Most people who choose this option notice between a 65-80% reduction in mosquitoes and other bugs. Our all-natural treatment breaks down slightly faster than our traditional barrier treatment, so we reapply this solution every two weeks instead of three.
