One of the most enjoyable things about summer is being able to spend time outdoors entertaining or playing with your family. However, if mosquitoes are bad in your area, your fun is cut short. If you want to take back your yard from pesky mosquitoes, fleas, and other tiny annoying insects, then have a mosquito misting system installed. Here is some information on how these systems work.
A Pest Control Company Handles The Installation
You can buy DIY misting kits, but having one installed by a professional and maintained throughout the season is a convenient way to get rid of mosquitoes. The mosquito control company determines the best place to put the misters and then installs them so they don't make your yard unattractive. The misters are often installed along the top of a fence so they have an effective spray pattern while being out of sight.
The misters connect to a tank that holds the pesticide. The pesticide is safe to use around your pets and kids, so you don't have to worry about anything toxic. When the tank gets low, the mosquito control company fills it for you, so you don't have to do anything to maintain the system. However, you can adjust the timer to the settings you prefer.
A Mosquito Misting System Works On A Timer
You don't have to remember to turn the mister on and off since it works automatically with a timer. You can adjust when the misters come on and how long they work through your smartphone. You can also use your smartphone controls to deliver a manual spray if it's needed.
Since mosquitoes tend to be the most active at dusk and at night, you may want the mister to spray during those times and stay off during the day. If you leave the mister off during the day, you won't have to worry about harming butterflies, bees, or other beneficial insects. However, when sprayed at night, the treatments kill mosquitoes and tiny bugs like fleas and ticks instantly.
The treatments also have a short-lived residual effect. However, since the pesticides break down fairly fast, you don't have to worry about long-lasting pesticides in your yard that could contribute to polluting the groundwater or killing other beneficial bugs.
If you like to spend evenings outdoors, and you want to protect your family's health by preventing mosquito bites, a mosquito misting system could be what you need. It's safer than spraying toxic chemicals around and more effective than using home remedies. A mosquito control company can answer any questions you might have about using one of these systems on your property.
