One of the few drawbacks of living in the South is the high number of mosquitoes that like to turn up at our outdoor parties and events. Not only are mosquitoes a huge nuisance, but they also carry diseases like West Nile virus and pose additional risks to those with allergies to mosquito bites.
If you’re looking to address a mosquito problem at your home, you may be worried about the ways in which anti-mosquito chemicals can impact the environment or affect your health. At Tuxedo Mosquito, we’re proud of our innovative, research-backed extermination methods that have been proven both safe and effective.
What’s Our Secret?
Tuxedo Mosquito uses synthetic insecticides called pyrethroids to control mosquito populations. This method of treatment is made to resemble pyrethrin, a natural compound derived from the chrysanthemum flower. Pyrethroids have a long, proven history of controlling adult mosquito populations safely and effectively.
How do Pyrethroids Impact the Environment?
Experts from the Environmental Protection Agency EPA, mention how pyrethroids do not pose unreasonable risks to the environment or wildlife when properly applied. Pyrethroids are non-toxic to mammals and birds when used in recommended amounts. Due to some risk of toxicity to fish, we ensure that our application sites are at a safe distance from bodies of water that could be affected.
How do Pyrethroids Impact Human Health?
Pyrethroids pose no threat to human health when used as directed. The only risk from exposure to pyrethroids comes when they are released into the environment at high levels through an accident or spill.
At Tuxedo Mosquito, we value and prioritize safe and ethical application of our insecticides above all else. Our trained professionals uphold the highest safety standards from the moment the job begins until it is done.
