Understanding Mosquito Misting Systems

In the perpetual battle against mosquitoes, a formidable ally has emerged - the mosquito misting system. This revolutionary technology promises to create an enduring mosquito-repelling infrastructure, offering immediate relief from these relentless pests. Let's explore the marvels of mosquito misting systems.

Defining Mosquito Misting Systems

A mosquito misting system is your go-to solution for a permanent defense against mosquitoes. Unlike traditional yard sprays relying on residual effects, misting systems provide immediate and lasting action. Operating on automated cycles, they release a scientifically formulated mosquito repellent at strategic intervals, precisely when mosquitoes are most active.

The Science Behind It

At the heart of a mosquito misting system lies a simple yet effective principle - scientifically formulated mosquito repellents. The misting system comprises a reservoir containing a solution with a mosquito repellent concentrate and water. This concoction is pressurized and released through a network of precisely placed nozzles.

When the mist is unleashed, it transforms into a cloud of fine droplets that linger in the air, creating an unpleasant barrier for mosquitoes. While killing any present on contact, these unwelcome guests will steer clear of this treated zone, significantly diminishing their presence in your yard.

Understanding The Mechanics

The mosquito misting system is orchestrated through a network of nylon tubing connected to a control box. This tubing, available in different colors to blend seamlessly with your home's aesthetics, is strategically placed along your home and fencing to ensure optimal coverage. The misting nozzles are positioned based on your property layout, guaranteeing the highest level of protection.

Longevity And Maintenance

Ensuring the system's longevity and efficiency, throughout the season, technicians regularly inspect the system’s functioning and refill the solution. A meticulous winterization process safeguards the system from the cold. At the onset of the new season, a thorough de-winterization is performed, replacing any clogged nozzles and addressing line damages promptly to maintain optimal efficiency.
