Hello, I'm Louise Hodges with, and I'm going to discuss today how to control mosquitoes and gnats on restaurant patios. When you're dealing with gnats and mosquitoes on a restaurant patio, of course you're dealing with food. So, it's very important that you use a natural, safe, green product. You cannot use any kind of synthetic pesticides around food, because it's toxic. So, you must use something that's very natural. So, most restaurant patios are a limited amount of space. And so, a one-gallon sprayer is typically enough. So, what you do is, you put your natural product in here, and pump up the sprayer. And then, you start applying. You want to make sure that you cover all of that patio space. When doing an application of your natural product, you want to make sure that you cover the entire square footage area. Because you're dealing with a natural product, it won't have the residual effect that some chemical pesticides will have, so, you need to do it on a regular basis. I would start out doing maybe every other day for a week, then go to twice a week. And, once you get it established, once a week is sufficient to keep your mosquitoes and gnats away from your patio area. So, there you go. That's how you control mosquitoes and gnats on restaurant patios. I'm Louise Hodges with Thank you for watching.
