Does Mosquito Spray Impact Other Insects or Animals?

At MosquitoNix®, we know how important your family, pets and other wildlife are to you. We also understand how important bees and some other insects are to our environment. This is why we take active measures to ensure these creatures are not harmed with the use of our products. We also take great care to ensure the products we use won't adversely affect their environments.

What Chemicals Does MosquitoNix Use?

MosquitoNix uses pyrethrum, which is derived from the chrysanthemum flower. This flower is also referred to as the pyrethrum daisy, the Chrysanthemum cinerariifolium and the Dalmatian chrysanthemum.

This EPA-approved, derived-from-chrysanthemum mosquito repellent system has been used for more than 60 years because it’s been found the most effective at eliminating unwanted pests. It has also been proven to be non-toxic for humans and pets, having been approved for use in the United States even on certified organic farms! Pyrethrum dries quickly, particularly in the sunshine, and leaves no residue on playgrounds, picnic tables, chairs or outdoor furniture.


Does Mosquito Spray Work on Bees?

We take care to reduce any chances of harming bees with our mosquito spraying because we recognize that bees are vitally important to the functioning ecosystem. Bees are integral to both humans and plants alike because these insects pollinate over 80% of all flowering plants, including about 70 of 100 top human food crops!

Pyrethrum can be toxic to flying insects, including bees, when it is wet. This is why we take great care to deploy our systems when bees are the least active and when they are the least likely to be directly affected by our mists or fogs. Our automatic outdoor misting systems deploy typically two to four times per day in the early morning before dawn and in the late evening after dusk. We also use a quick-drying formula to minimize harm to beneficial insects.

Does Mosquito Spray Work on Other Insects?

Bees aren’t the only beneficial insects. Many types of insects are not harmful to humans and act as predators to the types of insects you don’t want. These insects can also help your garden and foliage grow.

A reputable company like MosquitoNix that knows what type of chemical to use and when and how to use it will make every effort not to affect populations of non-harmful insects.
