There is a war brewing across America's patios and backyard barbecues. Mosquitoes, ticks, and all pests capable of drawing up battle plans disrupt outdoor gatherings with their bites?a nuisance that the techs at Mosquito Squad hope to eradicate. Treaters of 70,000 households using their EPA-registered all-natural spray system, they mist pest-laden areas with a control solution that repels up to 95% of tiny infiltrators. Alternatively, they can take a natural approach that eschews chemicals for bug-repelling essential oils. However, the bug fighters aren't just focused on making outdoor events more comfortable; they also hope to quell the spread of insect-carried diseases such as West Nile virus.
