Terry Conner is one of Kyle’s raving fans. “There’s very few people I rave about and recommend wholeheartedly, but he’s one of them,” Conner says. Still, it took seeing for Conner to believe. “I had my doubts, to be real honest,” he says. His wooded backyard and pool were a perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes. For Conner, chemicals weren’t an option. “We have animals and grandkids, and we never wanted to have the pesticides,” he says.
That concern was valid. “If you have children playing out in the yard or dogs and they come in and start licking their paws or putting hands in their mouths, they’re getting those chemicals in their bodies,” Kyle says. With his treatment, that danger’s gone. “It’s a USDA food-grade type of a product, so there’s no chemicals,” he says.
When Conner’s backyard was chosen to be the setting for his son’s September wedding rehearsal, he decided to call Organic Outdoors. “He came out and sprayed, and I didn’t see another mosquito the rest of the year,” Conner says. “I became a believer at that point.”
Organic and chemical treatments cost about the same. Organic Outdoors charges $50 for a typical third-acre front yard and backyard. The treatment does need to be done more often, about once a month. “Your tradeoff is that you’re going all natural,” Kyle says.
For Conner, the tradeoff was worth it. “The organic was very appealing,” he says. “It’s effectiveness that keeps us going back to it.” Effective at keeping bugs—and awkward moments—away.
