Natural Mosquito, Tick, and Flea Deterrent
Mosquito Joe understands that not every yard is the same, which is why we offer different treatment options to fit those needs in the surrounding areas. One of these options is our natural treatments.
What is it?
Mosquito Joe offers a natural mosquito repellent as an alternative to our synthetic treatment. This treatment uses essential oils, such as lemongrass, peppermint or rosemary, and garlic to repel mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas from your property. When applied the essential oils are diluted in water and become a low-dose product that will allow you and your family to enjoy a bite-free yard.
How is it applied?
The application is administered through a barrier spray system targeting:
- Vegetable gardens
- Perimeter of ponds
These are all areas where mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas like to rest and feed.
While treating, we also inspect your property for active larvae populations and treat them accordingly. Your technician will help you identify potential mosquito breeding grounds in your yard and recommend ways to eliminate standing water. These notes will be left on the post-service door hanger at the end of the treatment.
Is it effective?
Our natural treatment options deter mosquitoes immediately and effectively just like our traditional barrier treatment. Options range from all-natural garlic to botanicals derived from natural plant oils and range from 14 to 21-day cycles to maintain the same effective outdoor pest control.
Common Questions about Natural Pest Control Treatments in Macon, GA
What are the advantages and disadvantages of natural pest control?
Mosquito Joe’s natural pest control options in Macon, GA are just as effective as our traditional sprays, so that in itself is a huge perk. Some people find the use of only natural ingredients to be preferable for personal reasons, and some have no choice due to severe sensitivity to the ingredients in traditional sprays. Being able to have buzz-free outdoor spaces regardless of your circumstances is a massive bonus. As far as downsides….natural treatments can have a slightly shorter period of effectiveness than traditional pest control solutions. At Mosquito Joe, our all-natural garlic solution lasts 14 days, but our essential oil botanical treatment lasts just as long as our traditional barrier spray!
What keeps mosquitoes away naturally?
Essential oils can function as powerful mosquito repellants. Lemon, peppermint, and rosemary, for example, will all help to keep those pesky buggers at bay. Garlic is also a great deterrent because mosquitoes can’t stand the scent or the sulfurs that it contains! Mosquito Joe has a blend of each to provide natural pest control in Macon, GA.
