We’re proud to announce our new home pest control subscription, designed to work hand-in-hand with your smart lawn plan to target a variety of pests without harming the little ecosystem you’re working so hard to build. In addition to helping you cultivate a healthier, pest-free lawn, it offers a perimeter treatment to keep pests from getting inside your home. And for any persistent little critters that do manage to get inside? We have a spot treatment for that.
When you’re signing up for your smart pest plan, we’ll use your home address to investigate active pests in your area. We’ll make a recommendation as to what products we think will help, but you’ll have the chance to confirm or make changes. After all, you know better than anyone else what’s, er, bugging you.
The Basic Plan
Each of our DIY pest control subscriptions comes with two versatile products: An indoor multi-pest spray and an outdoor perimeter treatment.
1. Bug Doom Insect Barrier Using patented technology and a powerful, botanically derived pesticide, this barrier treatment keeps insects out of homes, flower beds, and other protected areas. The active ingredients, canola oil and pyrethrin, literally stop bugs in their tracks through asphyxiation and paralysis. Available in a gallon jug with an electric sprayer.
2. Bug Doom Home Insect Control This ready-to-use spray also uses canola oil and pyrethrin, but is formulated for indoor spot treatments. See a spider? Spray a spider. It’s also useful around common entry points such as windows, doors, and dog doors.
All customers will receive three shipments. The first delivery will include the indoor spray and barrier treatment, plus the barrier applicator wand (psst! hang on to the wand for next time!) and any supplemental products that you selected. Shipments two and three will arrive seasonally so you never run out, containing more barrier spray and supplemental products customized to your regional pest needs. Get to know them below!
We will make recommendations based on your ecoregion; for example, our southern friends may need help with mosquitoes, while folks in the northeast may need more tick protection. But you have the final say, and can always add or delete products based on your specific needs. Here are our more targeted options!
So you got your first shipment? Great! Your box will include step-by-step instructions on what to use and when, but here’s a quick overview.
If your plan includes Ant Adios or Fire Ant Fighter, start there. Wait 1 to 2 weeks before applying any yard and perimeter sprays to that area, taking care not to apply those products directly to the granules. (Pest control sprays will reduce granule effectiveness.)
Next, tackle your home’s perimeter with Bug Doom Home Insect Barrier, working quickly to create a barrier 1 foot up and 1 foot out from the foundation. If Mosquito Deleto or Nix Ticks are in your plan, apply those now to any trouble spots in your yard.
Need help with your barrier wand? We’ve got you covered here.
Reapply ant control granules as needed every 2 to 4 weeks.
Use Bug Doom Home Insect Control any time as a spot treatment indoors—spraying directly onto pests, to thoroughly infested areas, and places where pests crawl and hide. To use as a preventive barrier, spray around doors, windows, and basement areas where pests commonly enter.
And there you have it—you’re on your way to being a pest pro! For more details, see instruction sheets for each product. Read full instructions and precautionary statements on the product label before use.
