How is mosquito control applied?
Our mosquito barrier control service is effectively applied using a backpack sprayer. This application technique provides excellent coverage to plant materials, under decks, around structures and throughout landscape materials where mosquitos live, rest and hide. Our backpack sprayer applies fine droplets to each of these areas, which provide immediate knockdown as they contact mosquitoes. Our spray also provides up to 21 day residual to keep any new mosquitoes away.
What areas of my property will be treated?
Our mosquito control service specifically targets the areas across your property where mosquitoes live, rest and hide. Mosquitoes tend to rest on the underside of leaf surfaces. Dense plant materials such as trees, shrubs, hedges and ground covers are carefully treated to ensure effective coverage. Under decks, stairways and in and around landscape plant materials are other popular spots where mosquitoes like to hide.
What control products does mosquito.buzz use?
We offer both all-natural and synthetic control options. Both control options are liquid-based and sprayed across the aforementioned areas of your property. Our all-natural product consists of concentrated garlic oil, similar to the garlic you would use to cook with, but much stronger and more potent. Our synthetic barrier control product contains the synthetic form of pyrethrin, which is the natural by-product of the chrysanthemum flower.
Is mosquito control applied everywhere on my property or just where the mosquitoes live?
Our barrier control focuses on treating the areas throughout your property where mosquitoes live, rest and hide. We concentrate our efforts on treating the areas where you will spend and enjoy most of your time. We do not treat sensitive areas such as flowering plants, vegetable gardens, or bodies of water with our barrier control products.
Who does the mosquito control service?
One of our licenced highly trained and knowledgeable mosquito technicians will preform your mosquito control application. Each of our technicians are certified with a mosquito & biting fly category license. This is required by law in every province, and is regulated by the Ministry of the Environment.
Is mosquito control service effective if my neighbour doesn’t get it too?
Yes! Our mosquito control service is very effective even if your neighbor doesn't use our service. Our products kill existing mosquito populations on contact, and provide a barrier that keeps travelling mosquitoes away. If mosquitoes do attempt to come from neighboring properties, they will be effectively repelled for up to 21 days.
How soon after mosquito.buzz performs the service can I expect to see results?
Immediately! Our mosquito control takes immediate affect and you will notice a significant difference right away. Our product is specially designed to provide immediate knockdown controlling mosquitoes in the treated areas.
How long does the mosquito control last and how often does mosquito.buzz service my property?
Our season long mosquito control applications are evenly spaced apart approximately every 21 days. Depending on the control option you choose (all-natural or synthetic) the products have slightly different residual activity based on your climate and weather conditions. Each application is scheduled for maximum effectiveness before the residual has expired so you never go unprotected.
Do I need to be home when the service is performed?
No, we do not require you to be home for us to perform our service. To enhance your customer experience, we always ensure we email you in advance to let you know we are coming, and then again after service is completed. This way you know when we are coming, and how we did.
How will we know you came to the property?
Each time we visit your property our technician will leave a small 8 inch mosquito.buzz lawn sign that will indicate the application was completed. As a follow up you will also receive an after service email that will give you any special notes or suggestions that the technician has made for you.
How long before people and pets can go back into the treated areas after application?
We recommend waiting approximately 30 minutes until the treated areas have dried before entering them. Once the product has dried, you can go back to enjoying the outdoors.
What happens if it rains right after mosquito.buzz service is performed?
We always try our best to schedule your treatments around inclement weather conditions. As long as the control product has had time to dry (approximately 30 minutes) the rain should not impact the effectiveness of the application.
Are the mosquito control products safe for people, pets, and children?
We recognize that mosquito borne-disease and illness is a major health concern across Canada. Both the all-natural garlic, and synthetic mosquito barrier products we use are regulated by Health Canada, and approved for use in the control of mosquitoes by the Pest Management Regulatory Agency. These products have extremely low toxicity in mammals.
Are the mosquito control products harmful to my trees, shrubs and plants?
No. Both the all-natural garlic, and synthetic mosquito barrier treatments are not harmful to your plant materials. They are designed to be absorbed by the plant in order to provide residual control for mosquitoes when they feed on the plant juices.
Does mosquito.buzz guarantee mosquito control results?
Yes, although a mosquito control service can never ensure 100% protection or elimination of every mosquito. We pride ourselves in our sterling customer service, and our national satisfaction guarantee will show you that we stand behind our products and service works. If you are not 100% satisfied within the first 14 days of the application, we will come retreat your property at no expense. We will even go one step further and refund you the full amount for the application service if you are still not satisfied.
