How It Works

We stop mosquitoes where they breed and then establish a protective barrier around your property that keeps them away from you, your family and friends.

Our environmentally friendly treatments are safe for your kids and pets…but not mosquitoes, ticks, flies, gnats, stink bugs and other pests. They wont stand a chance.

Our licensed experts identify and treat areas that mosquitoes breed in. Then they apply a barrier spray around property lines and foliage to keep mosquitoes from traveling from your neighbor’s yard or other surrounding properties. Our treatments are even effective for properties adjacent to lakes, ponds, creeks or wooded areas.
