          AWESOME! Won't use ANYTHING else! ("ESSENTIALS")
          *INCREDIBLY* EFFECTIVE! Even heavily populated-mosquito areas -- literally become MOSQUITO FREE in seconds! Easy to apply before (or-even-during) an EVENT (family gatherings, parties, backyard porch sittings) -- or whenever the mosquito population gets bothersome! KID (and ADULT and PET) FRIENDLY! *EXTREMELY PLEASANT* aroma (Lemon grass OIL/wintergreen/peppermint-like scent) -- with ZERO LINGERING chemical smells! NOTE: TINY downside: it's MAXIMUM effectiveness (ZERO MOSQUITOES) lasts for TWO-to-FOUR days, and slowly diminishes w/time -- but this is a WELCOME trade off, based on EASE of USE -and- pleasant NON-CHEMICAL smells! Excellent shelf life, too! Initially bought for a FUTURE EVENT, but it sat on the shelf for a couple years! I now have a CASE of this on-hand, and one of the AEROSOL cans, too! Make sure it has "ESSENTIALS" in product name (different than simply their "BACKYARD CONTROL" version)

            Mosquitoes are a pain in our backyard. We have a drainage easement behind our fence that separates the backyards of our street, and the next street over. The easement has a lot of trees in and around it, so it's damp most of the time. The battle for evening backyard use is constant. I picked up the Cutter Essentials Bug Concentrate to use before a family birthday get together. I really like that the hose connecter already came with a hose washer installed (nice touch...I hate getting sprayed when I turn the water on). The spray control for turning on and off the water flow that picks up and disperses the concentrate works nice, with no too much resistance. We sprayed the backyard and easement foliage the evening before the party, and again the next morning, making sure the backyard had time to dry before people came over. We also used a fogging machine for two nights before the party. Lastly, we have a shepherds hook with an old fashioned bug zapper on it. The 3 part attack worked great, and there were few if any mosquitoes that evening and night. I think with doing this every few nights, we can enjoy a whole Summer in the back yard. Also, the cutter works well on ticks, so getting rid of any chance of them is a nice bonus too. *Note: We have tried professional mosquito control before. Works great for a day or two, but as they even admit. The mosquitoes will eventually come over from your neighbors yards, if they don't treat for them too.

            It's a little late in the season to try this product and give it a fair review but I'll give it a go. My grandsons were coming over to play in my yard so the day before, I used this spray. First, I cut the grass, then attached this container to my garden hose end shut-off adapter. I followed the instructions to move the lever, then turned on the adapter. Out shot the mosquito killer mixed with water. I didn't spray my entire yard, just the area where the boys would be playing. I can't say for sure that there were no bugs flying around when we were playing in the area but I didn't notice any and the boys didn't complain about any. No one got bug bit. I didn't notice a smell of any kind when using this product. It didn't harm the grass (mostly weeds) in any way.

            Pro: Safe for Kids and Pets, Novel application method Con: Insects must be contacted by spray, Lack of residual activiity Many things to like about this Cutter Essentials product; especially the unique application method, and the natural active ingredients. The container is designed to attach to the end of a garden hose so it can be easily sprayed, to cover an outdoor area up to 5000 square feet. The natural active ingredients (Commint, Cinnamon and Peppermint oils) are safe for kids, pets, and birds. The flip side of the safe ingredients is they kill insects by contact, so the area you are treating must be wet. There is no significant residual activity, so control can be short-lived. To make spraying easier, extend hose to the furthest distance you plan to spray, then work your way back towards the faucet.

            Very good insect spray. Shook the product very well before hooking it up to the garden hose. I used it in my backyard to get rid of the little critters. After spraying in the evening, I went outside the next morning to see if it had done its job and it had. There were dead insects that it apparently had killed and I was presently surprised that it had worked so quickly.

            First off, keep in mind that this is not a mosquito preventer. It works by contact; it won't prevent bugs or mosquitoes from coming around the area long term. It simply kills the bugs/mosquitoes that are currently there when you spray it. To test, I first stood in my yard for around 15 minutes prior to application. I spotted a few mosquitoes flying around me. I then sprayed my yard. The ingredients of this are just cinnamon and mint oils basically, so your yard will smell like it just brushed its teeth for a little while after application. After the spray, I stood in the treated area for around 15 more minutes. I spotted one mosquito, but that is it. Out of curiosity, I also sprayed a few spider webs that were near my spigot. The larger banana spiders didn't seem to be affected that much and simply climbed up the water spout as it were, but a smaller spider did seem to die on contact. A cockroach I found didn't seem to be impacted either, and a carpenter bee didn't enjoy it and took a while to shake the water off, but otherwise continued on its way. So, I would recommend this product as an option for clearing an area prior to a dinner party or something in the back yard. For a product that doesn't have deet in it, it did seem to cut down on the total overall mosquitoes and didn't smell terrible like some other non-deet bug sprays I've used. My yard in this application was not particularly heavy with mosquitoes, but it did cut down on them I think. At the end of the day, if the mosquitoes are particularly terrible, you might have to fog the area with something with deet in it.

            Lots of things to like about Cutter Essentials: Easy to apply, environmentally much more friendly than other products, has a pleasant smell of peppermint with a hint of cinnamon, and it seems to have cut down on the number of bugs. The sprayer is very sturdy and worked very well. It would be nice if Cutter offered a refill option for this product to cut down on the amount of plastic and possibly save the consumer a little money.

            My dogs spend most of their time during the day outside romping around enjoying the nice breeze. What's obnoxious is when they come in itching for hours in the evening because of mosquitos. It's unbearable. After spraying my yard with the cutter bug control spray it seems to have really cut back on the pests. I am curious how long it will last previous sprays I tried lasted for a couple weeks so I'm hoping this will last for a few more. I really like that it is pet and kid friendly and covers a wide range of bugs including mosquitos, ticks, flies, crickets and even ants. It's easy to spray and apply, just let it dry and then its ready for the doggos again.

            I the landscape around the house twice a year mainly to get rid of mosquitoes. I tried this product. I was surprised by the odor of mint type oils. This was a nice twist compared to chemical smells from other products. The container is made well. The release handle is very convenient and did not leak. Others have a small plastic tab that must be moved. This handle is a good design. There is a small safety pin that removes easily. The labels can be removed for a reusable hose end sprayer. I tend to over spray, so this bottle sprayed about 1/4th acre of back yard, grass and shrubs. There was a noticeable reduction in critters at dusk. I did see a few mosquitoes around the garage where I did not spray. I am pleased with the product and will give it another try.

            The mosquito killer is very easy to use. simply attach to the hose, turn on the water, pull out the yellow safety, and pull the white lever back. The spray comes out of the nozzle flat and is approximately 7 ft wide. The 32 oz container was enough to spray a 20 foot wide strip around my entire house and deck/patio area. It had a nice fragrance while spraying as opposed to a chemical one typical of some sprays. It appears to have cut down on some flying insects in my back yard a few hours after its application. It was also able to spray it on my desk, concrete driveway, and patio without any discoloration on the materials. I would recommend this product to help cut down the amount of pesky insects in the backyard.
