How Effective Are Mosquito Misting Systems?
June 7, 2017
As we hear reports about the Zika Virus affecting more and more people, we have developed an increasing concern with protecting ourselves and our families from mosquito bites. Furthermore, the treat of the Zika Virus also has national and local state health agencies consulting experts for the most effective mosquito control system to solve this problem. The consensus among scientists in the field of entomology is that there is no better solution than mosquito abatement, and the key element of mosquito abatement is the use of a mosquito spray or misting system.
Why Does Misting Work?
It’s simple: Adult mosquitoes don't like the hot sun. It dries them out. So, when the sun is high in the sky, most mosquitoes hide in shaded areas. If we can destroy these adult mosquitoes while they rest through the use of a mosquito misting system, they will not be able to lay eggs to create offspring.
How Does a Mosquito Misting System Work?
There are two ways to use a mist of EPA-approved chemicals to destroy mosquitoes. One is an application done by a pest professional. They wear a unit on their back and they spray foliage, bushes, shrubs, and shade areas where they know adult mosquitoes dwell. This is the process the U.S. government employs to government-owned property.
This professionally operated mosquito misting system has received favorable reviews, however, an automatic insect misting system increases the frequency of treatment and thus offers a greater level of protection.
In essence both an insect misting system and a backpack mosquito mist will help keep mosquitoes from destroying your next barbeque, but if you’re looking for long term results during this mosquito season, you will need to treat your properly regularly.
