Synthetic Pyrethroids v/s Organic Insecticides?

Dangers of Pyrethroids... 

Most widely used for residential mosquito control and often passed off as "natural " or a "version of a natural product".

Highly toxic to fish, crabs, shrimp, and many other forms of aquatic life.

Toxic to cats.

Linked to breast cancer.
Mimics estrogen, leading to estrogen dominant health problems in females and feminizing effects in males, including lowered sperm counts and abnormal breast development.

Weakens the immune system.

Tremors, chest pains, nausia, and irregular heartbeat can occur if inhaled. 

Abnormal behaviors, including aggression, and disruption in learning.

What are Synthetic Pyrethroids?

Synthetic pyrethroids are a chemically manufactured version of pyrethrum, a naturally occurring insecticide found in chrysanthemum flowers. Synthetic pyrethroids were developed to be more stable, lasting longer in the environment. When combined with synergists (another chemical to boost pesticide performance), pyrethroids can keep areas free of bugs for longer periods of time. For these reasons, they are the most widely used pesticide in residential mosquito control services. Despite their effectiveness against insects, synthetic pyrethroids can also harm people and the environment. 

Organic Insecticide...

Its all we use in our mosquito control services. Period.

Our organic insecticide is made from essential plant oils which provide residual protection, just like pyrethroids. But, unlike pyrethroids, the residue is non-toxic and has no negative effects on people, pets, fish or the environment. It is biodegradable and won’t contaminate water sources.

"To me its simple. I hate mosquitoes, but protecting my family and my home here on the Outer Banks is most important. Do your research...ask safe."
