Spring is always an exciting time! As soon as the temperature hits 12 degrees, we’re in shorts and t-shirts! Funny, because come Fall, when the temperature goes down to 12 degrees, we’re all bundled up in fuzzy sweaters and scarves! Ah! We’re a strange breed, us Canadians!
It’s true! The warmer months are upon us and while we love outdoor living, often times we are unable to enjoy it as much because of mosquitoes. They are a nuisance and also a danger as they carry some horrible viruses with them. We have tried so many ways to combat mosquitoes, from the zappers to bug sprays we have them all handy on our back deck.
My family and I pretty much live outdoors all year round. Mosquito season included! We’re beef farmers! I’m not kidding when I say we’re outdoors all the time. I really, really detest mosquitoes!
Though I love June because we’re that much closer to Summer temperature and Summer weather, I also dread mosquito season! I’ve tried everything to try to help my family not get eaten alive by mosquitoes. I’ve used natural sprays made with citronella and I’ve even gone so far as to rub garlic cloves all over exposed skin. Who knows if that was an old wives’ tale, but I will do anything to ward off mosquitoes.
Then I heard about G…
Green Strike Mosquito Preventer
In 2004/2005 we underwent a West Nile virus scare here in Ontario. At that time, researchers began to run with the idea of creating a holistic, non-toxic artificial pond for mosquitoes to lay their eggs in. They were determined to reduce the 2nd generation of mosquitoes, not just kill the 1st.
Just 1 mosquito can quickly multiply up to 30,000 mosquitoes in 21 days!! GreenStrike’s Mosquito Preventer STOPS mosquito population growth BEFORE it starts. It lures in the female mosquitoes using patented, non-toxic lures and replicates a natural pond where females love to lay their eggs. They are drawn into the unit where they lay their eggs and leave behind a natural pheromone, which signals to other mosquitoes that it’s a prime location for egg-laying.
After a few days, the Mosquito Preventer flushes the eggs through a filter, trapping the eggs before they have a chance to hatch. Best of all, it targets the types of mosquitoes that can carry West Nile Virus, Dengue Fever, Yellow Fever and Chikungunya Virus.
Thorough in-field studies prove that the Mosquito Preventer destroys approximately 20,000 eggs in 30 days resulting in approximately a 70% reduction of mosquito populations.
What’s different about GreenStrike’s Mosquito Preventer? It eliminates mosquitoes at the source! Other methods attempt to trap or catch the millions of mosquitoes that can be in your backyard but the Mosquito Preventer eliminates the hundreds of eggs laid by each of those mosquitoes.
