How Do Mosquito Misting Systems Work?

You may have heard the joke about mosquitoes being the state bird of Alabama. While this is somewhat silly, it’s true that mosquitoes here are large and numerous. If you’re tired of dealing with an infestation of mosquitoes on your Birmingham, AL residential property, you might be wondering what you can do to get rid of them. Mosquito misting systems may be just the solution you need.

Setup of Nozzles

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, mosquito misting systems are a safe way to control mosquitoes on your property. They’re a critical part of integrated pest management, which may also include eliminating sources of standing water. To set up a mosquito misting system in your yard, our technicians install several nozzles. In a typical backyard, three nozzles are usually sufficient. We place the nozzles around the perimeter of your property.

Feed Insecticide to the Nozzles

The nozzles are connected to a multi-gallon reservoir of insecticide. These systems use permethrins and pyrethrins, which are natural botanical insecticides. This type of insecticide prevents mosquito eggs from hatching into larvae and growing into mature mosquitoes. Adult mosquitoes may also be eliminated by these insecticides. The reservoir contains several months’ worth of the liquid insecticide. We monitor the level and refill it before it empties.

Nozzles Spray Insecticide

We set up the nozzles to spray at dawn and dusk, which is when mosquitoes are most active. The consistent mist drifts across your yard and eliminates pesky mosquitoes. This system also lowers the risk of spraying beneficial insects in your yard, such as butterflies and honeybees. The nozzles are equipped with wind sensors, and they can adjust the direction of the spray. They’re also weather-resistant and corrosion-resistant.
