Mosquitoes can be quite the nuisance. With their piercing mouths and ability to transmit numerous potentially lethal diseases, mosquitoes are pests that the world could really do without. Unfortunately, because they are also so tiny and quick, it is somewhat difficult to kill mosquitoes. While there are liquid insecticides and aerosols available for mosquito control, it may be difficult to kill the mosquitoes that linger around the homeowner or business owner. In terms of protecting oneself from mosquito bites, mosquito repellents seem to be adequately effective. However, because they are not a guaranteed shield, one may wish to use a mosquito misting system to complement the repellent.

While mosquito dunks and regular pesticides tend to be more popular, mosquito misting systems encompass several assets that other application methods cannot. Because they will be used for fine, light misting, misting and fogging products tend to have lower levels of toxicity than concentrated liquid or dust insecticides; most are only slightly toxic. One would have to ingest an ounce to a pint of the misting/fogging concentrate in order for it to be lethal. Misting insecticides also tend to break down easily, and with consistent sunlight exposure, will leave little to no residue after a few hours, meaning the sprayed areas will be safe for contact. Misting systems and applicators are designed to be flexible; they can apply mist products in concentrated, smaller areas or in larger areas. Similar to liquid concentrates, misting products can be applied precisely where the homeowner wants it to be. Mosquito misting systems also do not need constant maintenance like other pesticides. Once they are properly set up, they can be left alone in the area until the treatment is complete. The parts and components of these systems also tend to be very durable and hassle-proof; they are usually rust-proof and are warranted to last for at least several years. Overall, although mosquito misting systems tend to be bulky and require more handling, they provide enough benefits to offset those miniscule disadvantages.
Mosquito misting systems are typically assembled in the same way as fogging systems. Although the actual directions for use will differ by the product, there are a few basic steps that one must always take. If there is an emulsifier to be used with the misting concentrate, then they must be mixed together with a tank half full of water. Afterwards, completely fill the tank with water and spray according to the directions indicated on the misting system.
