Tired of Mosquitoes?

Posted in Insect Control

Well, winter is finally over and before you know it summer will be here.  Most people find summer to be one of the most enjoyable seasons, as it allows one to enjoy many outdoor activities at home such as gardening, working on the house and enjoying family and friends over a barbeque or a party.  This is especially true later in the day as the sun starts to go down and is not quite as hot.  However the downside to this time of the day is the large number of mosquitoes and other insects that are out with you at this time of the day!  While very annoying, some insect bites can also result in diseases such as West Nile Virus and Encephalitis. 

One of the most cost effective methods to remove mosquitoes and other unwanted insects on an ongoing basis is to install a automated mosquito misting system around the property, which sprays a mist containing a natural insecticide called Pyrethrum.  This product, which is odorless, is considered to be environmentally friendly and is considered to have a low-toxicity to humans and pets.  However, it is highly effective in killing hundreds of types of insects including mosquitoes, fleas, ticks and no-see-ums. 

The insecticide is delivered thru a series of strategically placed spray nozzles, which are nearly invisible, located around the yard being covered.  The system is completely automatic with the Pyrethrum being released at regular intervals using an automated time clock, which also has a battery backup system.  Many people find these automated systems to be a very cost effective means to eliminate pesky insects from their summer outdoor activities!
