Spring 2009 - Do Mosquitos Ruin Your Summer?

Spring 2009 Newsletter in Adobe PDF format Do you lose use of your yard each summer because of mosquitoes, or is there a big outdoor event that these unwanted pests might ruin? You might want to consider a control program.

We use an encapsulated product that is derived from chrysanthemums (yes, the flower). Because it is encapsulated, it lasts for one month. This means you need three to four treatments per year starting in May (depending on how wet and long the season is).

The plants on your yard perimeter and landscape plants in the area to be protected are treated on the lower six feet. It is important to be ahead of the problem rather than trying to play catch up.

If this sounds like it is something that would help with the enjoyment of your landscape, be sure to contact your Wachtel Certified Arborist to discuss this program.
