Organic Mosquito & Tick Control SERVICE
Protect your family and pets from mosquito and tick-born disease.
NuLeaf offers two options for mosquito and tick control.
Our 100% organic program is very effective when applied every two weeks to your landscape. We only use ingredients that meet the strict USDA National Organic Program standards. This program assures consumers that products marketed as organic are actually that. Our organic mosquito control includes such active ingredients as rosemary oil and cedar oil which offer quick knock down of adult mosquitoes and ticks. If you would like to learn more about the science behind our organic mosquito control program please check out the section at the bottom of this page.
NuLeaf also offers a Naturally Derived Program to control mosquitoes and ticks. This program is a safe option for your family and pets while being a little easier on your pocketbook. This program uses a synthetic derivative of the Chrysanthemum flower to control mosquito and ticks for up to three weeks at a time on your property. This is the same active ingredient that is in kid’s lice shampoo and your dog’s monthly topical flea and tick preventative.
After you select the program which is best for you our technicians will visit your property on a hassle free automatic reoccurring schedule. No need to call to set up an appointment. We aim to make your life easy and bite free.
Do you have a special event at the house, maybe a cookout or a wedding? We offer single applictions!
A single application prior to your big event will help reduce the possible annoyance of your guests caused by biting insects. 24 hours before the event we can apply a barrier spray helping to protect your guest from a sting, a bite or worse, a mosquito in the punch bowl.
How Does NuLeaf’s Organic Insect Control Work?
NuLeaf’s Organic Mosquito Control uses Octopamine Blocker Technology for a unique mode of action providing a fast knockdown and kills a broad spectrum of flying and crawling insects. This Product is made of essential oils that disrupts the neurotransmitter function in target insects but is safe for vertebrates like birds, fish, dogs and people. Our Product has no aquatic toxicity and may be used near or over open waters for such insects as spiders and mosquitoes without worry of hurting the fish.
The essential oils that comprise the active ingredients in NuLeaf’s Organic Mosquito Control products work by disrupting neurotransmitter function in target insects. Neurotransmitters conduct nerve impulses between neurons (nerve cells) and other body parts, such as muscles. The neurotransmitter binds to a receptor site on the affected cell, and then is broken down and deactivated by enzymes. In invertebrates, with their simpler nervous systems, a multi-functional chemical known as octopamine handles many of these functions. By targeting octopamine receptors, essential oils provide insecticidal activity with a much wider margin of safety than other products. Because vertebrates like birds, fish, dogs and people don't have octopamine receptors; they are not affected by the NuLeaf Organic Mosquito Control’s mode of action. And, by combining multiple essential oil compounds that have varied profiles, NuLeaf’s Organic products provide highly effective control of a wide range of insect pests. The result is natural insect control with no compromises
