Safe and effective pest control is important for the health and well-being of all, but especially for our children. 

Recess and before and after school play make for some of the fondest childhood memories. However, rodents, mosquitoes, and other creatures can transmit diseases and viruses to humans through contact and bites. This poses serious health risks to children, especially during their favorite outdoor activities. 

Given this concern, pest control must keep children safe from pests as well as harmful chemicals. 

Keeping Pest Control Safe For Kids, Pets, And The Environment

Pests can cause a significant degree of stress, disruption, damage, and contamination, all of which have financial and lifestyle consequences. With that, our decades of experience in the industry have shown us that consumers are becoming more aware and concerned about the impact of chemicals on human health and nature. At Natural Science Exterminating, preventing pests from wreaking havoc is just as important as keeping our clients healthy and happy. We exterminate using natural and non-toxic solutions and spot treat infestations whenever possible. 

Natural Science Exterminating works regularly with a small school in Orange County to perform pest control that is both safe for children and the environment. We use an eco-friendly general spray that removes pests and keeps them away.

Mosquitoes can transmit Zika, Dengue, West Nile, and Chikungunya viruses with a single bite, leading to rashes, fever, pain, and nausea as well as a number of serious and long-term health complications. We install an innovative and ecologically conscious mosquito trap that controls their population by killing mosquitoes and their larvae. Rather than applying chemicals or pesticides throughout the playground, the station targets mosquitoes by drawing them in. Mosquitoes are attracted to the station, where they come in contact with biocide and larvicide. Female mosquitoes lay their eggs, which hatch into larvae. The smell of the larvae lure more mosquitoes to lay their eggs inside of the trap. The larvicide kills the larvae before they develop further. 

The mosquito trap contains a net with a fungus that kills mosquitoes but does not infect humans or pets. This biologically active fungus significantly reduces the mosquito’s ability to bite humans and its virus development. As the fungus kills the mosquito within a few days of entering into the trap, the mosquito may still lay eggs and transmit larvicide, but carries a much lower risk of virus transmission to humans.

As the mosquito flies out of the trap, it carries larvicide and contaminates breeding sites it comes into contact with. Even in small quantities, the larvicide kills the mosquito’s own larvae as well as larvae of mosquitoes who use the same breeding sites. 

The mosquito trap is effective across 4300 square feet. This mosquito trap is registered and approved by the Environmental Protection Agency for use and purchase by licensed pest control professionals only. It meets the industry’s green standards as a naturally sustainable mosquito control solution with biodegradable ingredients.
