Pioneer Pest Management – Trailblazer Service – Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Do Pioneer’s Trailblazer treatments harm plants or trees?
No. Pioneer’s Trailblazer treatments do not harm your trees, shrubs, plants or your lawn.

Can my kids or pet play in the yard during a Trailblazer treatment?
We do not recommend anyone other than Pioneer’s technician be in the immediate area when a treatment is being applied. Usually, we ask for kids and pets to allow 20-30 minutes to allow the treatment to dry.

How do treatments last for 25 days?
The product Pioneer uses is formulated to have a residual control effect. Once dry, the treatment “sets up” on plant leafs and in typical mosquito harborages and breaks down slowly over a period of 21-28 days.

Do I have to have the treatment every 25 days?
No, while for neighborhood programs, Pioneer does ask the homeowners to be treated as a group. The program can be put “on hold” if the homeowner is traveling for a part of the season, or unique situations can be negotiatied between the customer and Pioneer. We’re pretty flexible. If it is determined that the ideal timeframe between treatments is shorter or longer, we will work to communicate that to the neighborhood group.

Does the spray smell?

The spray does have a slight odor. While barely noticeable when the treatment is applied, any scent of the application dissipates when dry.

Does Pioneer provide other mosquito control programs and other general pest control services?
Yes. Pioneer is an authorized distributor of MistAway Mosquito Misting Systems. For a custom MistAway quote, please contact Pioneer. For other pest control needs, please visit http://pioneerpestSTL.com . Pioneer offers a wide array of pest and wildlife control services.
