Does Mosquito Spray Impact Other Insects or Animals?

Effective and Gentle

At MosquitoNix®, we know how important your family, pets and other wildlife are to you. We also understand how important bees are to our environment. This is why at MosquitoNix, we take stringent, active measures to ensure that these creatures are not harmed in the use of our products. We also take great care to ensure that the products we use won't adversely affect their environments. We work hard every day to provide our customers with highly effective, quality products that are proven to work great but are gentle and non-toxic to our furry friends.

Does Mosquito Spray Impact Bees?

We also take care to reduce any chances of harming bees with our Mosquito spraying as 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 of the top human food crops!

What Chemicals Does MosquitoNix Use?

MosquitoNix uses pyrethrum, a chemical that 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 botanical insecticide has been used for over 60 years for mosquito control; it has been found to be the most effective at eliminating unwanted pests. It has also been proven to be non-toxic for humans and pets, and has been approved for use in the United States - even on certified organic farms! Pyrethrum also dries quickly, particularly in the sunshine, and leaves no type of annoying residue on playgrounds, picnic tables, chairs, outdoor furniture and more.

Because of its quick-drying formula, our mist won't harm you, your children or your pets. Please note, however, that pyrethrum can be toxic to other flying insects, such as 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 misting systems deploy typically two to four times per day in early morning before dawn and in the late evening after dusk.

Do You Have an All-Natural Solution?

Yes, we do! MosquitoNix also offers our MosquitoNix Green solution, an eco-friendly treatment that is 100 percent environmentally friendly. MosquitoNix Green uses herbal ingredients that have been proven to be effective insect repellents, such as clove extract and peppermint oil. This combination of ingredients helps to gently rid your commercial and residential landscapes of mosquitos, fleas, flea eggs and other pests. Our green solutions are better for use around dogs and cats 12 weeks of age or older, and present limited risk to children and adults compared with other misting options. It is a great way to rid your home, farm, resort, hotel, restaurant and other business facilities from insects that will ruin your day.
