Frequently Asked Questions
Safe for children and pets?
Yes! There are no poisons or harmful chemicals in the application.
Does Mosquito Barrier repel Fleas, Ticks, and Chiggers?
Yes, but don't spray your dog or cat. Instead, cut all tall grass and spray liberally on grass, shrubs, plants and tree trunks in the yard. Spray the yard completely. Also, be sure to spray the sides of buildings, tree trunks and wooden fence posts to a height of 6 feet when spraying for ticks. There is no need to spray the foliage on any trees. If there is a heavy infestation, repeat in 5 days and then every two weeks thereafter. That should be sufficient to keep the insects out of the yard.
Can my dog or cat get West Nile Virus from mosquitoes?
Yes, they can and there is no cure. However, it is rarely fatal. By all means, check with your vet if your pet appears ill or feverish.
What exactly are ticks?
Ticks are not insects. They are arthropods that are more closely related to spiders. Adult ticks have 8 legs while insects have 6 legs. Ticks are ectoparasites, meaning that they must have a host for most of their life cycle to survive and reproduce. The tick life-cycle includes an egg, larval, nymphal and adult stage. The larval stage of the tick has 6 legs, but when it molts to the nymphal stage, there are 8 legs.
What is a Misting System?
Mosquito misting systems generally are on a timer and are programmed to go off in the early morning, at sundown and in the early evening. They spray a poison which kills bees, butterflies and other beneficial insects. On windy days they can blow the poison onto your neighbor's property. If your neighbors are allergic to the poison, you may be facing legal problems. Mosquito Barrier is best sprayed at sundown when no bees or butterflies are out. If the wind blows - it won't poison anyone or anything. It's also safe around fish.
Is the Mosquito Barrier harmful to beneficial like birds, bees, ladybugs, and butterflies?
No, not at all. Birds, bees and ladybugs are not bothered by the garlic spray. Butterflies are not bothered by the garlic spray if you do not spray it on them directly.
I see several mosquito sprays for the yard that have Permetherin in them which is used to kill mosquitoes. Is it safe?
Permethrin has been licensed by the EPA since 1977 and has a few warnings in its use: It kills bees and fish and many beneficial insects. It cannot be sprayed near streams, lakes, fish ponds, etc. Many sellers of products containing this chemical are often shy about telling consumers about what all it kills aside from mosquitoes.
Will Mosquito Barrier work on fire ants?
Yes. We have had excellent results getting rid of fire ants by using Mosquito Barrier in a drench that is poured over the fire ant mound. More information and instructions can be found here. There is no competition. Impact Mosquito Control is a cut above the competition. Only the best available technology is put into each of our custom services.

If you want to enjoy the great outdoors, you may soon realize there are some not-so-great parts about heading out into the big wide world. Whether you’re trying to grill outside, relax in a hammock or take a (literal) hike, you just might find that annoying, whining buzz following you. There are about 176 species of mosquitoes in the United States and these insects kill 50 thousand times more people than sharks do. They’re considered major disease carriers, transmitting malaria, the West Nile virus and other potentially fatal diseases. They’re also pests, getting in the way of outdoor activities, causing painful bites, and even causing injuries to animals and livestock.
