What’s Bugging You? 

What’s Bugging You? 
By Dasha Peipon 

How would you like to sit on the porch with a glass of wine and enjoy the beautiful sunset? But these pesky bugs are everywhere, right?! We thought we would put together a list of pest control solutions that actually work. We ignored the bright labels of the familiar products on the market. We wanted to find effective solutions for our Mississippi environment, and for our nasty bugs in our own backyards. And this is what we found.  

Spartan Mosquito Eradicator 

Did you hear about Spartan Mosquito, the new weapon against those pesky blood-sucking invaders? Not just any invaders, the Mississippi ones. See, the creator of Spartan Mosquitoes is from Mississippi. He knew exactly what he was dealing with when he came up with this new product. The Spartan Mosquito Eradicator is an effective, lasting, continuous mosquito control system. Once set up, it takes care of the problem for up to 90 days. It comes in a plastic tube with powder inside (a set includes two tubes). All you need to do is fill it up with warm water and hang on a tree or fence. Spartan doesn’t use sprays, fogs, coils, mosquito nets, citronella, electronic equipment, or zappers. It is not harmful for bees (that makes us particularly happy). It also doesn’t require batteries or electricity. Once mosquitoes, attracted to the water solution in Spartan tubes, feed on it, they perish before they can breed again.

PROVEN Insect Repellent Odorless Spray and Lotion 

PROVEN is a range of safe, DEET-free and effective insect repelling sprays and lotions that keep annoying disease-carrying bugs away.  

PROVEN’s formulations contains 20% Picaridin, a non-toxic active ingredient recommended by the EPA, CDC and World Health Organization for effective protection against insect-borne illnesses like Zika, Dengue Fever and West Nile Virus. PROVEN effectively repels mosquitoes, ticks, black flies, biting flies, stable flies, gnats, chiggers, and sand flies for up to 12 hours. 

The CDC states Picaridin is safe for babies over 2 months of age as well as pregnant or nursing mothers. All PROVEN products are planet-friendly, safe for pets, and non-toxic to fish and wildlife.  

The product does work, and we are happy to say the odorless spray and lotion really are odorless.   

PROVEN is made in the USA by EPA- approved factories.

Rescue Mosquito GoClip  

These plastic clips are about four inches long. They can be rather discreet when attached to a purse, a stroller or the bottom of your shirt. The Mosquito GoClip repels multiple species of mosquitoes as well as ticks, biting flies and black flies. 

The GoClip is infused with all-natural essential oils that protect your personal space from mosquitoes, biting flies, black flies, and ticks with a “spatial” effect that deters them from landing on you. 

The biggest pro of this product is it takes literally zero time to get it on and doing its job. There’s no need to apply creams or sprays, or mix special solutions. You just clip it on – and keep doing what you were doing.  

One clip offers up to two weeks of protection. Resealable pouch included allows clip to be used multiple times

Rescue Ant Baits  

When ants show up in homes, they refuse to leave. Rescue Pest Control Ant Baits are safe for humans and pets. These baits use a mess-free gel that attracts ants, luring them into a trap and getting rid of them in a natural and safe way. While working, ants feed on sugar, but the queen ant feeds on protein. This formula is essential in eliminating entire colonies.  

Rescue’s Ant baits are ready out of the box and easy to use.
