Eco Friendly Pest Control Company for Mosquitoes and Ticks

My neighbor and Mom Friend Lisa sent this to our Moms’ Book Club. Pest control for mosquitos and ticks that is pesticide-free and safe for pets and kids. Sounds perfect to me! We tried the Mosquito Magnet for years but we only had success the first year when the machine was new and it’s expensive to replace annually. If the mosquitos are biting, we aren’t able to enjoy our deck. I am going to try them out!

Hello Everyone,

I hope you’re enjoying your summer. I wanted to pass on the name of a company we’ve hired to spray our yard for mosquitoes and ticks, since the spray seems to be working well and we’re enjoying summer in our yard more than in years past. The spray is pesticide-free/pet and child safe oils like rosemary and garlic and we’ve had almost no mosquitoes since the first spraying 3 weeks ago. Pure Pest Management comes to our house every 3 weeks and spends less than 10 minutes to spray our grass, plants, and trees with the oil mixture. Each application costs $65, which is around $15-20 more than I’d pay to buy similar spray to apply on my own (which I couldn’t do as well as the pest company does).

* Cost of service depends on size of yard.

 

Pure Pest Management serves all of MetroWest and has also recently expanded to the South Shore. Their eco-consciousness extends to how they run their company. In 2011, they didn’t source any of our water from the public supply- it was all rain water using 2,100-gallon rainwater collection tanks.

p.s. I just read that West Nile Virus was confirmed in Newton mosquitoes. There are no plans to spray Newton by the city at this time.

    Thanks for this info.

    Many of us would like something safe that can be applied directly to the body [self-applied, lol].

    I’m contacting Pure Pest Management for their advice, but I thought that you might have some recommendations of your own.

    Thanks again.

    I’ve heard repeated that Avon Skin So Soft works to repel mosquitoes and now they have an aerosol spray:
