We offer a combined pest control package to protect you against mosquitoes and ticks in one go. We do this because we know mosquitoes are the most dangerous insects on the planet.
Similarly, ticks carry some of the worst viruses and bacteria.
If an infected mosquito or tick bites you, your suffering could be short-lived, with a rapid recovery and complete restoration of health. In the worst-case scenarios like Lyme disease, Ehrlichiosis, or Powassan disease, your health recovery is likely to be long-lasting and complex. In the case of chronic conditions, patients often never recover fully.
We are sincere when we say that we don’t want you to have this negative health experience. The best way we can do to help you protect yourself is to provide traditional pest control services to limit your exposure to these insects.

FAQs About Organic and Traditional Pest Control Services In Massachusetts
1. What is Permethrin?
We use permethrin in our traditional pest control applications. Permethrin contains properties similar to those in the chrysanthemum flower but is a synthetic product. Permethrin has been a registered product with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) since 1979.
2. Where is Permethrin Used?
Authorities use this product to protect crops like wheat, alfalfa, maize, and cotton. Other applications include its use on mosquito nets to protect stored animal products like sheep’s wool. It also shields food, livestock, and pets from disease-carrying insects like mosquitoes and ticks.
Permethrin is also commonly used on clothing as a protective measure. Other uses of this application include its use in public places such as restaurants where food is prevalent.
3. How Does Permethrin Work?
This product is exceptionally effective because it starts affecting insects immediately after ingesting or coming into contact with it. This product impacts the insect’s nervous system, starting with spasms, paralysis, and death. In other words, permethrin is lethal for insects because they cannot process this product.
In contrast, people and dogs can process permethrin well. However, cats are not designed to cope well with this traditional pest control application.
4. What Are Some Products That Contain Permethrin?
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates about 1,400 registered permethrin-containing products. So, permethrin has a prominent position in our modern society.
Besides companies using it to manage pest populations, it is present in multiple medications and other applications. For instance, it is present in aerosols, dusts, powders, pet shampoos, and liquids used for insect population control and protection.
Permethrin is in tick and flea applications that are made for dogs. This product is also used to protect livestock. Topical creams contain permethrin and are prescribed to treat lice and scabies infestations on people.
5. Are children more sensitive to permethrin than adults?
Tests have been conducted to determine the risk to health for humans and pets. No tests show that children are susceptible to permethrin compared with adults. However, suppose your child is sensitive to other products. In that case, keeping them away from areas where you use sprays, powders, or foggers to treat pests is advisable.
