Mosquito mist systems work by regularly spraying a desired protection area through misting nozzles connected by small diameter (1/4″) nylon tubing lines with a highly diluted insecticide & water mixture in the 150 to 200 PSI range. Eventually (over the course of a few weeks) you will have eliminated all of the adult mosquitoes living within your area. The mosquito insecticides approved for use in these systems kill insects after contact by affecting their nervous systems. Natural pyrethrum is low in toxicity and considered safer than synthetic pyrethrum also known as Permethrin. The reason is because after the natural solution dries it leaves no residual poison, which is not true of the man-made alternative. Non-toxic minimum risk rosemary based organic insecticides and repellents such as orange and cedar oil can also be used and are the safest. Pyrethrins are contact sprays, this means you are only killing bugs when the mosquito mist makes contact. Larvicide dunks or granules should be placed monthly into areas that periodically collect standing water for a complete mosquito management program.
The vast majority of mosquito species tend to become active 1 to 3 hours before dusk and are most active at night feeding primarily on birds from 12:00 to 6:00AM time slot. There are also species that are active during daylight hours. Every property is a unique situation and to maximize the effectiveness you as the homeowner will need to experiment with the times you spray, for how long and at what strength. Excellent mosquito control results can be achieved either by spraying more frequent shorter spray durations or longer spray times less frequently. You are the results barometer and should make the adjustments necessary to responsibly eliminate and control the mosquitoes in your particular area.
How our Mosquito Control System Works:
The MosquitoMax system was engineered to allow the operator the ability to kill and control mosquitoes without having to measure and mix chemicals. Once the nozzle quantity and spray times are entered, the self-contained system will pump the desired amount of concentrated insecticide into a vented mixing tank plumbed to water. The system can be programmed for on demand only, for one or seven days a week, from 5 to 120 nozzles and from 15 to 120 seconds per spray cycle using any approved mosquito insecticide. Two to three minutes per day on average should provide good initial results and can be reduced and tailored to your own needs after initial infestations are brought under control.
Mosquito Misting System Safety:
Our mosquito misting system is lockable and incorporates an air-gap, which prevents contaminated water from entering the water supply line. Tremendous agitation takes place in our system during every spray cycle, which is required to produce maximum efficacy with the rosemary based plant oil products. Additional benefits are consistent insecticide to water ratios and constant fluid turn over which eliminates fungus growth.
Economical and Environmental Benefits:
The MosquitoMax system is at minimum 10% more efficient than 55 gallon reservoir systems and delivers the added benefit of chemical strength adjustment and chemical rotation. These exclusive features allow the operator to determine the amount and type of insecticide required for effective mosquito control. This practice can reduce operating costs and is environmentally responsible.
Our mosquito machine requires the periodic cleaning of a stainless steel filter and a detachable mixing tank. Concentrated insecticide is easily replenished by pouring into a large mouth graduated 128 oz. container. The mosquito mist systems are completely securable by utilizing a locking device. Our electronic controller is the most advanced in the industry. A 5 button wireless remote control allows spray on demand, 24 hour suspend or a spray water only function which keeps your nozzles clear during a prolonged absence from your property.
