Mosquito Squad offers an alternative to homeowners and commercial customers for eliminative mosquitoes and other insects such as flies, gnats, fleas, Japanese beetles and spiders. Mosquito Squad's automatic misting system uses pyrethrum — a natural insecticide — to create an invisible barrier that attacks the mosquito's nervous system almost immediately. Afterward, pyrethrum is quickly degraded by the combination of air and sunlight. A 30- or 55-gallon reservoir, control unit and pump is stationed in an inconspicuous area, typically near an air conditioning unit, and pumps pyrethrum through quarter-inch nylon tubing that connects nozzles placed 10 to 15 feet apart.
