So one of my neighbors told my wife today they got a quote from this franchise called Mosquito Shield and they quoted her $500 for the season. She laughed that she knows I spray, it works and it costs nowhere near $500. I looked at their website and they basically spray the property with some solution using a mist sprayer. What caught my attention was the formulation they claim... they say its 99.97% natural. I thought to myself, wow, they get good results with spraying with natural stuff (they show pictures of garlic, cedar bark, etc). Then I realized.... wait. I mix 0.2 oz of Demand CS or Talestar P with 1 gallon of water. Thats 99.84% natural! Are these guys pulling over a massive scam on people? Pretending this is natural stuff and dousing peoples properties with chemicals??? And ripping them off in the meantime? My treatments probably run me $10 a season and my property is twice the size of hers.
