Spring has sprung, and summer is right around the corner. The weather is warming up, and
lakeside living has never seemed like a better idea.
To top it all off, it’s the weekend and you’re ready to enjoy everything the lake has to offer. The
boat, the crisp water, and the smooth sunshine.
But first, you have to spend a few hours cleaning your boat and dock from all the spider webs
that gathered throughout the winter, along with any other insects and pest problems.
We thought it might. Every boat owner has experienced the same thing. The sun is finally
shining, and the weather is warm. You’re ready for a fun-filled lake day only to find out you
have a spider, insect, and pest problems to clean up first. That is never a fun task.
Instead of adding extra work to your weekends, let our team at Abra Kadabra keep your boat,
dock, and marine equipment free from spiders, pests, and other insects. Our goal is to help you
enjoy your lake time even more without worry and hassle.
For years now, our professional staff at Abra Kadabra has been providing this service to our
customers on the many lakes throughout our great state of Minnesota.
We used to just offer this service in conjunction with our other pest packages, but now we are
looking to offer this as a stand-alone service to the boaters on Lake Minnetonka and surrounding
If pests have been a dock downer for your family and your boat, it’s time to make a change. We
only have so much lake time in Minnesota. It’s time to make the most of it.
Keeping our lakes clean is essential here in Minnesota. As one of our most important natural

That’s why we only use natural, environmentally-friendly products when cleaning docks and
marine environments here at Abra Kadabra. We are passionate about taking care of the
environment. All of the products used to clean lake areas are certified-organic and made of
These products prevent any pest from wanting to intrude your summer lake fun and cause
damage to the docks, boats, and equipment you have invested in. But they don’t do any damage
to the lake or the environment, which we think is pretty cool.
Our mean-and- green products will keep your boat, dock, and equipment without any common
pest problems, like:

Now, you may be wondering how an all-natural product can eliminate all your pest problems
without damaging the lake environment. We get that. We didn’t believe it at first, either. But
trust us, these products work and pest will be gone from your dock and boat. Here’s how we do it
at Abra Kadabra.
See, our products only use essential oils and natural spices when working around the lake. There
are no chemicals in these pest elimination products. There is zero risk to the marine life of the
lake, but the results above water will leave you speechless. Many customers wonder if we’re
using a magic potion or something.
The plant-based insecticides in the form of “potions” have been used for decades to prevent and
manage pests. Because we are incredibly passionate about caring for our planet, the team at Abra
Kadabra decided to switch things up and go old school.
Nowadays, we prefer using essential oils coupled with the industry’s most advanced science. In
doing so, we’ve created a product that is effective and environmentally-friendly. No more
spiders or pests, but no problems with the marine life. A true win-win.
The eco-friendly formula that we are utilizing consisting predominantly of:
- Peppermint oil
- Thyme oil
- Rosemary oil
The oils used in our applications are found to have potent insecticidal, larvicidal and repellent
properties. These oils act in various modes, but the primary mode of action is disrupting a
neurotransmitter that is essential for invertebrate activity.
Vertebrates like birds, fish, dogs, and humans do not have these receptors. As such, humans and
marine life are not affected by the specific mode of action in our unique, environmentally-
How Our Service Works
It’s simple really. Most living lakeside or owning a boat find themselves spending more time
swiping at spider webs and dealing with pest control at the lake than they’d like to.
At Abra Kadabra, our goal is to eliminate this time wasted and ensure you’re able to spend more
time enjoying the lake with family and friends. As such, we’re working to become the first and
best pest control company offering said services on Lake Minnetonka and throughout other lakes
in the area.
Services are structured monthly from April through September for a complete season of pest
prevention. As a certified Pest control company, we have the knowledge and necessary licensing.
We already help hundreds of families with pests in your home and yard.
Now it’s time to control the pests, spiders, and insects at the lake. Here’s how it works:
- Marine spider and pest control services start around April or May. It depends when the
Minnesota weather decides to cheer up for the year. Services last through September, the
end of boating and lake season.
- Most docks require six total treatments throughout the boating season.
- Our services utilize pressurized sprayers to treat the dock with essential oils and remove
pests. We also remove all spider webs, egg sacks, insect nests, and more from the entire
dock area and structure.
- Generally, we schedule dock pest removal services every 21-28 days. This is dependent
upon the weather and how the product holds up.
- We can also do one-time services before an event or party you’re hosting around the lake.
- We offer an upgrade from our standard service package to our Midas Gold Service
Package. This service is scheduled every 14 days. If you’re interested in this package, get
