Terminix is offering a new mosquito repellant that they claim is both effective and environmentally friendly.
The service is available to both residential and commercial customers and includes their newest mosquito control technology.
This new technology just happens to be garlic oil. The mosquitos and many other types of bugs do not like the scent of the oil and will avoid any areas that have been sprayed with it.
According to the company, the new spray will not only repel mosquitos but will also kill over 90 percent of them within 3 weeks of the application.
The spray should be applied monthly or as often as needed and interested customers can set up a monthly service plan with the nearest Terminix professional.

It is currently mosquito season and the company suggests customers arrange for their first treatment soon. The cost of the application depends on the size of the treated area.
"As the world's largest pest control provider, we're in a leadership position to bring innovative, industry-leading products to the marketplace," said Bill Derwin, Terminix president. "This new mosquito service will offer our customers yet another line of defense against these dangerous and annoying pests."
The company says that it took them more than five years to develop the treatment and claims that their new spray is the only treatment that is environmentally friendly.
There are numerous other sprays and treatments available to help repel mosquitos, but most of them do not kill them and are also made of strong chemicals that are harmful to the environment, people and other animals.
Mosquitos are nasty little insects that suck blood and can spread illnesses between humans and animals. The new treatment could reduce the amount of blood borne illnesses that occur in the United States and other parts of the world and also make your backyard BBQ’s more enjoyable.
