St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) May 1, 2010 —
Just in time for mosquito season, Terro(http://www.terro.com), the industry leader in pest control products for consumers, has introduced a safe, effective way to control mosquitoes. Terro Mosquito Repellent is an easy-to-use granular product made from a blend of natural botanical oils, including citronella. The 100 percent natural granules are safe to use around people and pets and is easily applied in any area where mosquitoes are a nuisance by simply sprinkling over the desired area. The repellent’s effectiveness lasts up to three weeks.
Terro Mosquito Repellent can be used around patios, decks, campsites, pools, and houses, on lawns and in and around flower or garden beds. “The repellent releases a nicely scented botanical vapor that disorients the mosquitoes, keeping them from detecting people or pets in the immediate area,” explains Stewart Clark, technical director at Terro. “To ensure the most effective mosquito control it is critical to eliminate standing water where mosquitoes like to breed. When possible, eliminate water from empty flowerpots, driveway puddles, hot tub covers or any item that can hold water for a few days.”
Terro Mosquito Repellent comes in a 2 lb. container that will cover approximately 1000 square feet. For best results, apply to a dry surface during light or no wind. For greater repellency, higher application rates such as 3 lbs. per 1000 square feet may be used. Repeat applications every 21 days for continuous mosquito control. Do not water after application as continuous moisture can reduce the performance of the product. Terro Mosquito Repellent will not damage lawns or plants.
