Mosquito System

How Is A Mosquito System Used?Modern technology makes it possible for homeowners to have a mosquito repellant system that can run autonomously and efficiently. These devices can handle a number of harmful and annoying insects, including gnats, spiders, wasps, bees, ticks, mites, and flies, among others. Insect-borne disease is a major concern in many parts of the U.S., and people allergic to insect bites or stings need to be especially careful when outdoors. Pets are also at risk for developing severe health complications when exposed to insect bites. For these reasons, an automated repellant device can be a major line of defense in safeguarding the health of loved ones and pets alike.

For years, the only mosquito repellant system available was one that needed to be applied manually. From simple skin applications to hand-operated insecticide sprayers, there wasn’t a convenient way to prevent intrusion of harmful pests. Skin creams and sprays are only effective against a small number of pests and can leave the skin feeling sticky. Repelling candles only work in a small radius around the candle and have to be replaced regularly. Insecticides are able to control pest populations to a degree, but they are unsafe to handle by untrained people. Calling a professional in to do the job can be prohibitively expensive and is not always a permanent solution.

However, there is now a better approach to eliminating pests from a property. An automated mosquito system in the form of an insecticide mister can eliminate a large number of dangerous insects with minimal maintenance and attention. Spraying nozzles attached to copper tubing are installed in several places throughout the property. They can be fitted just about anywhere, including around porches, pools, flower beds or decks. Automated repellant devices can also cover an entire property, ensuring that pests stay far away. The nozzles are fed the insecticide (normally pyrethins or environmentally friendly repellants) from a large tank stored in a safe place on the property. The tanks are available in several sizes, from 30 gallon drums to 225 gallon tanks. Nylon tubing connects the nozzles to the tank. The nozzles, copper and nylon tubing are all designed to be difficult to see so they don’t detract from their surroundings.

The mosquito system is run from an analog or digital control box that can quickly change the settings of the insecticide application. From this control box, a homeowner can change misting frequency and the amount of insecticide applied per misting. The misting frequency can be set anywhere from four hours between sprays to one minute between sprays. The nozzles can also be set to spray for anywhere between one and 99 seconds during application. The large number of options available allows a homeowner to quickly adapt to changing conditions in the local pest population. During elevated periods of insect activity, the operator can manually trigger misting, providing immediate defense. Both the analog and digital control boxes come with a backup battery so misting is uninterrupted.

Pests pose a threat to people and animals beyond just painful bites and stings
. A mosquito system can prevent transmission of deadly blood-borne diseases, like heartworms in pets, or West Nile Virus in the rest of the family. Heartworms kill numerous cats and dogs around the country every year, and West Nile can cause severe, possibly fatal, illness in children and the elderly. An automated insect repellant setup may seem like a luxury, but the view quickly changes when people realize it can save lives.
