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 don’t want mosquitos to infest your Birmingham, AL, home, you have several things you can do. Mosquito misting systems may be just the solution you need.
Setup of Nozzles
Firstly, 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 connect 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. These insecticides also eliminate adult mosquitos. 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 come equipped with wind sensors, and they can adjust the direction of the spray. They’re also weather-resistant and corrosion-resistant.
