Is Mosquito Shield Mosquito Control Spray Safe?

I need help my internet friends!

I have been searching, unsuccessfully, for information about the chemicals used in the proprietary Mosquito Protection Blend (MPB) that Mosquito Shield uses to spray residential properties. This is the Mosquito Shield franchise company founded by David Briggs, not to be confused with the Canadian Mosquito Shield Inc. company or Mosquito Shield Bands. Mosquito Shield claims their spray kills mosquitoes, masks CO2 and repels mosquitoes. I can't help but wonder what other insects it kills... bees, butterflies, lady bugs, fireflies, etc.

I spoke with a franchise owner about what was actually in the spray. He was not a little bit forthcoming about it. He just kept saying how safe and natural it is. He said it is so safe that the technicians don't even wear masks when they spray. Funny thing is, he did wear a mask while he was spraying it!!! I sent the company an email asking for info about the ingredients and how the spray affects other insects but got no reply. 

What I know about the spray from the information provided by the company is this:

It's 99.97% natural plants extracts...... but what plant extracts?

The rest is controlled materials, meaning insecticide..... but what insecticide?

It contains a waterproofing wax they call Rain Shield which allows the product to stick to all organic surfaces....what kind of wax? (I guess it also sticks to the feet of your children and pets and is tracked in your house to where it then proceeds to stick to your floors and everywhere else!)

They use "FlexBlend" technology -"Brings together the power of science and research to create the industry's only predictive spray technology"....not quite sure what that means!

They monitor mosquito population and weather conditions and adjust their program and rotate control products.

I don't like mosquitoes. I also don't like unknown chemicals being sprayed near my home. You see, my neighbors have their property sprayed by Mosquito Shield and I watch the over spray drift over to my property where we grow veggies and have a butterfly/hummingbird garden.

I realize that they have the right to spray their property, but I don't want unknown sticky chemicals on mine! So my friends, please, please, please share with me any information you have about the chemicals and natural ingredients in the spray or sprays used by Mosquito Shield. I thank you and the visitors to my garden thank you.....Meow!
