- $59 for a QuickNix mosquito, gnat, and no-see-um fogging treatment ($149 value)
Valid for up to three-quarters of an acre, the QuickNix treatment begins with an inspection of the property from a licensed prevention specialist. The specialist then cloaks trees, bushes, and foliage in a safe, plant-based fog, cutting down existing populations of mosquitoes, gnats, and no-see-ums. The multi-step process also includes repellant; specialists distribute mosquito-blocking granules and use larvicide to prevent future infestations in areas prone to standing water.
Vibrant perennial flowers known for their sunny blossoms, chrysanthemums often find work decorating a home or jazzing up a garden. However, beneath their bright exteriors lurks a dark secret: the flowers are stone-cold mosquito killers. These horticultural hit men often partner with the pest-control professionals at MosquitoNix, who transform the plants into a plant-based pest assassin that is safe around pets, kids, and other foliage.
Since their founding in 2003—the same year the Mosquito-Human Armistice of 1983 expired—MosquitoNix has been helping families reclaim their backyards. The company's licensed specialists decamp commercial and residential sites around the globe, where they address mosquito problems depending on the needs of each location. They deliver one-time fogging treatments, for instance, in preparation for upcoming outdoor parties. They also install fully automated misting systems, whose daily sprays from concealed nozzles repel not only mosquitos, but also other annoyances such as flies, fleas, and spiders selling magazine subscriptions.
