Our primary barrier treatment products are synthetic forms of pyrethrins called pyrethroids. Pyrethrins originate from the extract of chrysanthemum flowers. Pyrethroids are used in various household products including lice shampoos and pet shampoos and sprays. We spray this product on bushes and shrubs, mulch beds, low-hanging portions of your trees, etc. Since these products are derived from plants, they will not harm plants. The products break down naturally into harmless byproducts 21 days after application.
In addition to outdoor mosquito, tick, and flea control, pyrethroid based products like these are used in flea treatments for dogs and medications for head lice. All synthetic products that Mosquito Hunters uses are registered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Also, all Mosquito Hunters technicians are licensed by the Department of Agriculture.
