Mosquito Spraying at Pitts Road Park

Beginning last weekend the MUD began spraying for mosquitoes at Pitts Road Park. We want to make everyone aware of the application and also cognizant of the contents of the spray.

The product being used is poison-free, safe around children and pets, and should last up to four weeks. As stated on the manufacturer’s website, “Product, except for preservatives, is all garlic juice. It is designed to be diluted in water and sprayed on plants, grass, shrubs, flowers, ornamentals, trees, vines and in any standing water in the area including water under porches and decks.”

As to the initial smell, it continues, “Product normally becomes odorless in less than an hour.”

The company, Garlic Research Labs, also notes that the product does not harm vegetation, nor does it change the taste of any food plants. As an added benefit, it should also repel armadillos, deer, field mice, yard fleas, ticks, and geese. It does not harm bees, butterflies, birds, cats, dogs, or other small animals.

If you have any questions, please notify the Pecan Grove MUD at (281) 238-5000.

Thank you.
