Having any sort of impact against the 12 species of mosquitoes that inhabit Georgia is impressive. If you can do it naturally, that’s even better. Healthy Home Termite & Pest Control has a targeted and environmentally friendly solution to your mosquito problem. If you’re looking to make less of an impact on the environment, or simply to reduce your family’s exposure to chemicals, try out our oil-based, eco-friendly solution.

By combining rosemary oil, peppermint oil, and wintergreen oil, Healthy Home Termite & Pest Control is able to target the neurotransmitters in invertebrates like mosquitoes and keep them away from your home. This all-natural, plant-based solution is mixed together and dispersed over your property the same way our traditional mosquito treatments are, by misting your yard, trees, shrubs, and shady areas.

Octopamine

How can this combination target insects but not people or pets? This combination of plant oils has a unique mode of action that targets a key neurotransmitter receptor called octopamine which is found in all invertebrates (i.e. insects), but not in mammals. Octopamine regulates an insect’s heart rate, movement and metabolism. Interrupting the function of octopamine results in a total breakdown of the insect’s nervous system.

Treatment

Similar to our traditional treatments, we suggest that this natural mixture is sprayed in your yard twice a month between March and October. Special one-time treatments can be performed in preparation for an outdoor event.

To help keep mosquitoes at bay, there are a few things you can do in addition to using our all-natural spray. First, make sure your yard is free of overgrown shrubs and grasses; these are some of adult mosquitoes’ favorite places to hide. Keeping grass short and bushes tamed reduces the likelihood that pests will pick your yard to camp out in.

If you have an excessive number of mosquitoes, there’s a chance that they’ve found some places to breed in and around your yard. Mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water, so be on the lookout for puddles, birdbaths, tree stumps, ponds, etc. that have even a little bit of still water in them. Mosquitos can lay eggs in an incredibly small amount of standing water.
