  • FAQ

  • 1. Your sprays are considered pesticides, are they safe?
    Yes, our sprays are safe and organic and will not harm insects that are important to our ecosystem.

    2. Do I have to stay indoors for hours after an application?
    We ask that you stay away from the area that was sprayed for approximately 30 minutes until the application dries.

    3. How often do I need a tick or mosquito application?
    Every 30 days depending on infestation and saturation. If we are spraying for mosquitoes we recommend that we spray the first application then return 15 days for a second application, then resume to every 21-30 days.

    4. I have a big yard, do I have to spray the whole thing!?
    No, we concentrate on areas where ticks thrive, tree lined areas and where you spend most of your time.

    5. How long does it take for the insect to die?
    Depending on the insect, it can take just minutes while others a few hours. Our product is not considered a "kills on contact" pesticide but the product must contact the insect to work effectively.

    6. Is Lyme Disease preventable?
    YES! Tick bites and tick-borne diseases are completely preventable. Wearing clothing with built in tick repellent, using bug spray (DEET on your clothing, and having Natural Choice Tick Control spray monthly are a few ways to prevent these illnesses. 

    7. The temperature dropped, do I still need to have my yard sprayed?
    Adult stage deer ticks become active every year AFTER the first frost. They are not killed by freezing temperatures. Our seasonal plans include application through December. 

    8. Can I still get Lyme disease once there is frost?
    Most people think that mosquitoes and ticks disappear along with the risk for disease transmission once there is a frost and the weather turns cooler. That's true for mosquitoes; they either die, or some species go into a feeding diapause. Some ticks also go into a feeding diapause in the autumn, but not deer ticks (Ixodes scapularis) - they are a different type of bug! The adult stage deer tick actually begins its feeding activity about the time of first frost (or early October throughout its range), and it will latch onto any larger host (cat to human) any day that the temperature is near or above freezing.
