The Pest D-Fence program is simple:
- One treatment each month from spring to fall – peak activity time
for disease-carrying mosquitoes and ticks.
- Results increase over time but knock-down is immediate.
- Each treatment takes about 15-25 minutes – if your yard is very large,
it can take up to 45 minutes.
- You cannot be outside during the treatment.
- Receive an email notification upon completion of treatment, so you don’t
even have to be home.
- We WILL NOT treat on rainy, or windy days – part of our commitment
to the environment, not revenues, like many competitors.
- The material dries in about one hour, at which point you may re-enter your yard.
- Safe for children, pets, and other neighborhood critters – TOUGH
on mosquitos and ticks.
Program is credit card only – just like your gym membership.
You will only be charged the months we treat – cancel anytime.
Q: So you are saying I will never see a mosquito or tick in my yard?
A: I wouldn’t be surprised, but no, that’s not what we are saying.
70-90% suppression is dramatic, but this is not elimination – which
is impossible – because mosquitoes will travel over a mile in search
of a blood meal (**so tell your neighbors about the program – for
every neighbor or friend that signs up, you get a free month), and ticks
may travel on other neighborhood critters like chipmunks, squirrels, birds,
or even snakes.
Q: Is it safe for me? The kids? The puppy? The honeybees?!
A: Of course. Remember – as pest control operators we are stewards
for the environment – we exercise that in EVERYTHING we do. This
program is very low impact, be it the organic or conventional option.
We are talking about a shot-glass or two of product, dissolved in gallons
of water, dispersed on the underside of leaves and shaded areas (targeted
– which is why we won't do it in the rain (run-off) or wind (drift)
– over your entire yard. It targets the nervous system of the mosquitoes
and ticks– it’s a quick death. Once dry – absolutely
harmless to mammals and non target pests.
All of our technicians are trained specifically for these types of applications.
Each is required to complete a learning course for Pollinator Health through
the National Pest Management Association – yes, bee health is THAT
important to us all.
Q: What is the difference between the conventional and organic option?
A: First and foremost – both are plant derived, but one is synthetic
and one is a natural compound. Both work wonderfully. In our experience
you get a more abrupt knockdown with the conventional, while the organic
can take a few hours to kick in. For most customers, that isn’t
a problem as all treatments are done early in the day. The organic product,
however, synergizes more effectively, so you may decide to finish services
earlier in the season and expect control for a few more weeks or months.
No promises there- but that is direct feedback from some of our customers.
Also, if you have a fish pond or live near a body of water, organic is
the only option we will offer you, just to be safe.
