Fight Zika with Green Mosquito Control


Nature-Cide™ is a 100% natural and highly effective insect, rodent and reptile insecticide/pesticide and repellent product line. Nature-Cide kills ticks, fleas, ants, bed bugs, mosquitoes and other insects on contact. Nature-Cide's 100% natural formula is a great option for customers that are looking for an alternative approach to mosquito control that doesn't employ traditional pesticides.

The market demand for non-traditional pesticide alternatives continues to grow. Many consumers have reservations about using synthetic chemistry. "Chemical Free" options exist in food production, cosmetics, household cleaners and the like. With Nature-Cide, that same option now exists for flea, tick and mosquito control. Customers will initially be interested in Nature-Cide due to the excellent environmental profile of the product and the gentle formulation. But they'll be repeat customers because of its ability to kill and repel a multitude of different pests.

Alpine WSG Proven, Effective, Easy-to-Use

Alpine WSG Water Soluble Granule Insecticide is proven to control ants, bed bugs, fleas, house flies and German cockroaches, among other labeled pests. Application sites include attics, eaves and soffits, hard surfaces (sidewalks and driveways, for example), siding, indoors to flea-infested or potentially infested areas (such as rugs, pet beds or floors), or outside in yards for ants and fleas. It’s also easy-to-use, mixing into a clear, odorless solution that doesn’t stain. Once mixed, it stays suspended and won’t clog equipment. The Alpine family of products includes Prescription Treatment brands: Alpine Flea Insecticide with IGR, Alpine Dust Insecticide, Alpine Cockroach Gel Bait, Alpine Pressurized Insecticide and Alpine Ant and Termite Foam. All Alpine formulations contain the active ingredient dinotefuran, which has been granted reduced-risk status for public health use by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

PMP Spotlight - Jeff King, Pest Rangers

When Jeff quit his job to take his business full-time in April 2015 he turned to Jim Hearity and the Residex team for direction on how to grow his business. Hearity immediately talked to him about mosquito control as an add-on business. And he didn’t stop there, he helped him sell his first account, a golf course and went along with him for the first treatment. “From selecting the right equipment for my business to guiding me to the most effective products, Jim was with me to ensure my success,” said King of his relationship with Residex and Jim Hearity. King suggests looking for the mosquito services upsell on every account. If he sees an outdoor kitchen or well-used backyard he sees the need for mosquito control. He also suggests that companies look for commercial opportunities. A tire manufacturer in Pest Rangers area was the perfect target for mosquito control. He also suggests looking for drainage swells and retention ponds around businesses. Some states will test the water for mosquito control and fine the business if it is not being done.
