We want you to feel comfortable using our services. Here is a list of questions that we hear from our customers, when we first start working with them. 

How does BuzzGuard apply its Mosquito and Tick Spray?

At BuzzGuard, we employ a specialized backpack sprayer for the effective application of our mosquito defence control service. This method ensures thorough coverage of plant materials, under decks, around structures, and throughout landscape elements where mosquitoes reside, rest, and hide. Our fine droplet spray immediately knocks down mosquitoes upon contact and provides lasting protection for up to 21 days.

What control products does BuzzGuard utilize?

BuzzGuard utilizes a synthetic barrier control product containing the synthetic form of pyrethrin, derived from the chrysanthemum flower.

Which areas of my property will BuzzGuard treat?

Our mosquito control service targets specific areas of your property where mosquitoes are most prevalent. We focus on dense plant materials such as trees, shrubs, hedges, and ground covers, as well as areas under decks, stairways, and within landscape elements to ensure comprehensive coverage.
