Spring is here, otherwise known as the first half of Summer in the Rio Grande Valley, and as the sun rises earlier and the temperature warms, it’s time to be outside. Unfortunately, something else is arriving and for families and homeowners, it can cause a lot of stress. This something is pests, and whether they fly or crawl, their motivation is to turn your yard into their home and breeding ground, while biting your family and spreading dangerous diseases. If protecting your family and your home from pests is a priority, there are some important facts you should know before you take measures into your own hands.
Can the Can
When you consider the science behind why pests come near us, you’ll never want to purchase bug spray again. Pests like mosquitoes are attracted to the carbon dioxide we exhale, meaning that they’re attracted to our breath – something that can’t be masked by bug spray on skin. Based on this logic, it simply makes no sense to drench your family with the harmful chemicals found in most bug sprays. Not only is this practice unhealthy, it simply won’t prevent pests from invading your space. This spring, it’s time to get rid of your can of bug spray and choose an alternative that you never have to apply to your skin.
You’ve Heard About Spraying
It’s likely that you’ve already heard about “spraying” for mosquitoes. This process consists of a technician building a “border” with a spray that both repels and kills pests. The border is sprayed around the perimeter of your outdoor space, focusing on areas where mosquitoes breed and congregate, and paying close attention to those areas where your family spends the most time. Unlike traditional bug spray, this border repels and kills pests before they can enter your space, either killing them immediately or forcing them away from your property altogether–and keeping them away.
Why Does Spraying Work?
Unlike applying a mosquito repellent to your body, spraying a border works because of….”SCIENCE!” (click on it- you’ll be blinded) Since mosquitoes are attracted to the CO2 we exhale, the only way to keep pests away is to block them from detecting the CO2– one of the many things that a Mosquito Shield border does. Additionally, spraying for pests works because the technician who applies the border is an expert and knows exactly where to apply the spray. From swing sets to holes in trees, the skilled Mosquito Shield technician will make sure to address and treat all the areas where mosquitoes are most likely to congregate and breed. Most importantly, the formula of the spray not only repels, but kills pests like mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas, giving you the peace of mind to feel secure in your outdoor space.
