How Do Misting Stations Work?
You can use automatic pyrethrin misting stations anywhere you have access to electricity and water. Program the station to spray when insects are most active, generally in the evening and at dawn. The insecticide kills any insect within the spray’s reach instantly.
Misting stations are great for widespread pest control, but they can kill valuable species too. Do you have honeybees around your home?
