Tired of slapping mosquitos every time you go in your back yard? One area business has an answer to the problem.

Gulf Coast Mosquito Control (GCMC) offers homeowners and businesses automatic spray systems that protect against mosquitoes, biting flies, no-see-ums, wasps, spiders and other irritating insects. They are custom designed and professionally installed.

The system makes use of pyrethrin which is derived from the chrysanthemum family. It is not harmful to people, plants or pets.

Pyrethrin is biodegradable and does not leave oily build-up on walls and patios. Unlike dangerous chemicals and pesticides, it is low in toxicity and has no unpleasant odor.

GCMC installs the system in accordance with the needs of the customer. The pyrethrin is stored in a drum on the site from which it is transmitted through small tubing placed under the eaves of homes or buried or hidden through bushes to locations around the property. It is then sprayed through stainless steel nozzles to areas where it does the most good. Once a system is installed, it is virtually unnoticeable.

A timer on the drum regulates how often and how long it is sprayed. A rain sensor can automatically turn it off when the weather gets nasty, saving the pyrethrin. A hand-held remote control allows residents to activate the system from within or outside the home.

GCMC promptly refills the drum when needed.

The system carries a one-year, parts and labor warranty and a 100 percent money-back guarantee if a purchaser is not completely satisfied.

One customer says, “My yard is bug free even the day after it rains. The system is amazing.”

Another reports, “With the automatic spray system, there’s no more mess, no worries and I don’t have to spray the kids with Off every time they want to go outside.”

“We expected to have at least a few mosquitoes but we haven’t seen one since we started using Gulf Coast Mosquito Control,” claims another.

GCMC can be contacted by calling 1-800-9BUGOFF or 504-899-1950. Website is www.gulfcoastmosquitocontrol.com.
