Frequently asked questions
What makes your product so special?
Essential oils have been used individually for thousands of years by people all around the world for biting-pest control. After extensive laboratory testing, specifically on mosquitos, we have found the most effective mixture of these oils for eradicating and repelling mosquitos for up to 21 days with just one treatment.
How is it applied?
The application is administered through a high-volume fogger system targeting shrubs, plants, flowers, vegetable gardens, and around ponds where mosquitos, ticks, and fleas like to rest and feed. The organic, surfactant blend bonds to any surface and intermittently releases over 21 days as it dilutes.
While treating, we also inspect your property for active larvae populations and treat them accordingly. Your Skeeter Beater technician will help you identify potential mosquito breeding grounds in your yard and recommend ways to eliminate standing water. These notes will be left on the post-service door hanger at the end of the treatment.
Is it effective?
Just like a synthetic treatment, our natural treatment options eradicate mosquitos immediately and effectively. The effectiveness of the treatment relies on the consistency of the cycle. A pest-free environment can last 21-30 days before another spray. Of course, the longer we treat your yard, the better our product works.
Is it safe?
Yes. If used as directed of course. All ingredients are classed as “Minimum Risk” and are EPA exempt due to this. When applied as directed, our product will allow you, your family, and your pets to enjoy a bite-free yard safely without harsh chemicals.
What if it rains after my yard has been treated?
Rain should not impact the effectiveness of your service if your yard has had adequate time to dry after the application of your treatment (30-45 minutes depending on temperature and humidity). However, our Buzz Off Guarantee ensures that if you are not completely satisfied with the effectiveness of our treatment, contact us within 14 days of your service* and we will schedule a time to reassess your property and if needed, provide a booster application at no additional cost.
Does it leave any residue?
Our solution, once dry, is translucent.
Can I spray this solution on my body?
No. While it is completely non-toxic, the Buzz Off concentrate is not designed to be sprayed on people or pets.
We are working on a safe body repellent using our natural oils, so stay tuned!
What does it smell like?
Many customers say Buzz Off smells just like Italian salad dressing! They say it's pleasant but sometimes makes them feel like making a salad! The pleasant smell dissipated after about 15-20 minutes after spraying. Once dried on plants the smell is unnoticeable to humans but still deadly to mosquitos.
What about bees and butterflies?
Our many customers tell us that they continue to see healthy bees and butterflies in their yards when using our Buzz Off products.
Do you service commercial accounts?
Absolutely. Our treatment is a great solution for many commercial businesses such as restaurants with patios, campgrounds, parks, sports fields, daycares, schools, public pools, playgrounds, outdoor wedding venues and more.
Is your service affordable?
Our services are affordable and start at $75 for initial treatment of a 1-acre property (price increases slightly for larger properties). If, for some reason, you are not satisfied after the initial treatment, you are not obligated to continue service, but after seeing what our product can do, 90% of our customers sign up for a 3-month contract or longer!
Would I be better off installing a misting system?
If you are considering a misting system, consider this. The cost of installing a misting system is the equivalent of a 6-year contract with us. In addition, mosquito systems spray a water-based system which is ineffective at eradicating mosquitoes and hazardous to your health. Once again, Buzz Off’s product is 100% organic and 98% effective.
What are the plans to choose from?
The longer we treat your yard, the cheaper and more effective our services are. We offer 3, 6, and 9-month plans and accept all major debit and credit cards, check, Venmo, and PayPal.
