How long does it last?
Controlling mosquitoes is a subjective process- regional, local, and specific property variables as well as climate factors will affect the duration. That is why we actively manage and adjust our schedule when necessary, providing you with a 10-17 day return window.
What if it rains?
Rain Shield is contained in our proprietary Mosquito Protection Blend – as long as the spray has time to dry Rain Shield will assure continued protection even with moderate rainfall.
I have small children and pets, is it safe for them?
Mosquito Shield’s MPB is our formulation developed by founder David Brigg’s after years of testing and forms the basis for our spray. It is made of 100% natural ingredients. In addition, we normally add a very small amount of “flexblend” control ingredients which are strictly regulated by the EPA through federal legislation.
Is the treatment effective against any other pests?
While mosquitoes and/or ticks are our primary focus our treatment has been known to help with stink bugs, box elder bugs, and fleas.
What if my neighbor has a swamp on their property?
