Is Summer the End of Mosquito Season?
This has been the best summer, honestly. My family and I have been spending a lot of time outside playing and on our back patio just trying to take it easy. Of course, like most people, my least favorite part of this time outdoors is the swarms of mosquitoes. Mosquitoes have been especially present in people’s minds this summer because of the threat posed by the dangerous Zika virus.
Most of us think that when summer ends, mosquito season does, too. Unfortunately, that’s not quite true. Mosquitoes stick around and pose a threat from mid to late fall. In fact, many mosquito-borne illnesses like West Nile can spike in the fall.
Fortunately, I have recently discovered a new product that will let my family and I continue our summer time outdoor traditions without the threat of mosquitoes.
Terminix AllClear Mosquito Bait & Kill is the first consumer-ready product that allows users to apply the new patented and non-toxic process of Attractive Targeted Sugar Bait (ATSB) in their backyards to “bait and kill” mosquitoes.
Haven’t heard of ATSB yet? Well…here is what I like about it.
I like that this product is non-toxic and doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals. In fact it is safe for people, pets, and the environment. I also like that it works like no other control before it. It uses a sugar bait (not a repellent) made of plant nectars, mosquitoes natural energy source in the wild. Mosquitoes can’t resist eating the bait and never detect that infused inside is a deadly dose of microencapsulated garlic oil. Garlic poisons mosquitoes when they eat it. It makes them feel too sick to bite or breed so they stop bugging you and disappear from your yard!
I also like that Bait & Kill is sprayed in the yard (not on me or on my loved ones!) and keeps on working for up to a month! Spray it on non-flowering plants once a month and you’ll see results within 2-3 days and entire populations will collapse by 90 percent in 3 weeks!

Terminix AllClear Mosquito Bait & Kill is available in a twin pack of two 15 oz cans that will cover a 5,000 square foot yard at select Target and Lowes stores, as well as online www.baitandkill.com, at Amazon.com, target.com and lowes.com.
I’m looking forward to these last few weeks of summer and early fall. Thanks to Bait & Kill, I’m hopeful I can experience the season without the threat of mosquito bites!
