It’s Your Yard. Defend it.
We offer one option with our Mosquito and Tick Program, Essentria IC-3 organic products that are very effective at protecting your property and health. Information on the organic products are below. This program requires a 1x per month treatment from spring until fall, typically April-October depending on the weather, which is peak activity time for disease carrying mosquitoes and ticks. The treatment is applied to areas around your property where ticks and mosquitoes congregate.
You can expect up to a 70-90% reduction in mosquito and tick populations around your home. What this simply means is less pests and less risk from the diseases caused by these pests. This program has been thoroughly field tested and you can expect immediate results after the 1st treatment, but even greater results over the course of consecutive months. Bottom-line is this program gives you back your yard! You can expect a pest free yard day and night all spring and summer long.
Is Essentria IC-3 Safe?
Essentria IC-3 uses an all-natural essential plant oil that meets the national organic program standards. The program is tough on pests and NOT on people and the environment! All treated areas should be avoided for one hour to allow drying time.
Essentria IC-3™: Botanical Safety, Synthetic Performance
IC-3 uses botanical compounds that plants generate as part of their natural defense against insect attacks. These compounds work by blocking octopamine in the target insect’s nervous system. Mammals, birds and fish do not have receptors for octopamine, so these products have no adverse effect on them. IC-3 products have great pest knock-down power and have only a natural fragrance. The result: fast, effective insect control with a totally “green” product.
These pests are not only irritating, but harmful to you and your family. Besides the welts and itchiness that they bring, mosquitoes can transmit several potentially life-threatening diseases. While humans can obtain West Nile Virus and Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) from mosquitoes, pets can contract heartworm disease from them. Mosquitoes are considered to be one of the most deadly insects in the world. It’s your yard, not the mosquitoes’. Let’s defend it. Did you know that mosquitoes have been around for more than 30 million years? In those 30 million years, mosquitoes have been working on developing new skills to help them find their prey. Mosquitoes track their prey by using their senses for chemical, visual and heat. Some mosquitoes will even fly over two miles to get a good meal.
With A1 Exterminator’s Mosquito and Tick program, you can feel safe and comfortable in the yard of your home or outside your business while enjoying a rewarding outdoor lifestyle. Take it back from these pests.
