For many of us, when searching for a new home, a big beautiful backyard, perhaps with a nice deck, is a priority. Imagine the possibilities: backyard children’s parties and adult dinner parties, gardening, and of course fun in the pool. After all, we live in South Florida, where we can enjoy our backyards, year-round. But annoying mosquitoes and no-see-ums can wreak havoc on the fun if you’re not properly prepared to battle them. SWAT Mosquito Systems®️ can help, starting with sharing with you our “Three Tips for Maintaining Your South Florida Yard.”

Reclaim Your Space from Annoying Mosquitoes and No-See-Ums with a Mosquito Mist System

Back in the day, we had a finite “mosquito season.” But now, all bets are off, and it seems they’re present year-round. There’s a lot you can do to help control the mosquito and no-see-ums population on and around your property.

Get Rid of Any Standing Water

Mosquitoes LOVE standing water and are attracted to it because it’s the perfect breeding spot. This means you should drain standing water from most sources – both natural and human-made, including:

  • Dishes/pet water bowls
  • Tires
  • Clogged gutters
  • Toys
  • Wading/kiddie pools
  • Buckets
  • Pots/saucers
  • Bird baths
  • Bromeliad plants (leaves/rosettes store water)
  • Wading pools

You don’t have to worry about draining your swimming pool if it’s been treated with chlorine, which inhibits larvae growth – and if the water is circulating. Nor do you have to worry as much about a decorative water fountain or waterfall on your property, because of the moving water, which prevents mosquitoes from laying eggs in that body of water. And by the way, there are some natural ingredients, such as cinnamon and vinegar that you can add to your fountain to keep mosquitoes away.

Maintaining Your South Florida Yard and Keeping Landscaping Under Control

Did you know that mosquitoes, like the rest of us, prefer to get out of the harsh sunlight every once-in-awhile? They also like humidity and feast on nectar, so they enjoy hanging out in tall grass, shrubbery, bushes, and foliage. This all points to the need to keep your landscaping and yard in check by doing the following:

Check out our guide on How to Throw the Best Outdoor Dinner Party.

While mosquitoes are more prevalent during the hotter months and rainy season, they’re always around. After all, we live in a tropical location. And mosquitoes are not only annoying, but their bites can be hazardous to your health. We all remember our battle with mosquitoes and the mosquito-borne Zika virus in 2016 — that was brutal.

Try Our Effective Mosquito Control Misting Systems

Mosquitoes and no-see-ums are most active at dusk and dawn.  Unfortunately, that covers prime-time for dinner parties.  But not to worry. Food and entertainment aside, we can help you put on the best outdoor dinner party – and you won’t have to worry about your guests swatting bugs.  Many people spend a lot of money on store-bought backyard mosquito repellent or other yard bug sprays to attack mosquitoes, which may

work for a few minutes or so, and some of them are toxic. But your best bet for mosquito control in Miami is a mosquito misting system.  It’s an excellent preventative approach to the spreading of mosquito and insect-borne diseases.

SWAT Mosquito Misting Systems creates a mosquito prevention perimeter around your home by installing a custom-built misting system. You can set the system to activate 3 to 4 times a day for anywhere from 20 to 45 seconds. You will definitely notice a difference. We guarantee it! You can also clearly see the difference when comparing it to mosquito fogging.

We Provide Non-Toxic Mosquito Control

We take a professional approach to pest control – attacking mosquitoes without harming the environment. Our custom-designed mist system is made from pyrethrum, which is derived from chrysanthemum flowers – (mums for short) and is fully biodegradable. It will not leave a residue and is a low-toxicity pesticide from a human health standpoint.  It’s effective and repels mosquitoes and no-see-ums without putting your pets or your family at risk. We would love to come out and talk to you about how our mosquito system can help put you and your family and guests at ease. We’ll answer any questions you may have about our system, its effectiveness, and how it works.

Take Preventative Measures

In the meantime, there are precautions you can take to keep down mosquito action in and around your property:

  • Drain/eliminate any standing water, prime locations for mosquito breeding.
  • Make sure your windows and doors are screened properly and are not torn or ripped.
  • Use mosquito repellent.

It seems that these days, mosquito “season” is year-round here in South Florida, forcing us to be on guard all of the time. But some of us need to take more precaution than others. Mosquito bites can be dangerous, even deadly, and for some people, they could spark an allergic reaction. Are you a “mosquito magnet?” Many people are, and there’s an explanation as to why some mosquitoes bite certain people more than others.

But before we go any further, let’s do away with the myths that supposedly increase your risk of being a mosquito target. There’s very little if any evidence that connects mosquito bites with the following: skin color, perfume, eating bananas, or age. Done and done.  And by the way, not all mosquitoes bite us. That distinction goes only to the female mosquito, who uses our blood to develop her eggs. The male mosquito prefers nectar from flowers.

Are You A Mosquito Magnet?

Mosquitoes target an estimated 20 percent of us, for their blood meal. But how do they go about choosing their target? Is it a case of someone being in the wrong place at the wrong time?  Perhaps. There’s no one simple answer. It seems a variety of elements can attract these annoying, sometimes dangerous pests.

Sweat Attracts Mosquitoes

The sense of smell is a big deal for mosquitoes, who use that as their primary selection method.

And they apparently like certain body scents or odors – especially those of us with sweat on our skin.  Sweat emits certain gases, such as lactic acids, that attract mosquitoes. Power walkers or runners who build up a serious sweat outside might attest to this.

CO2 – The Carbon Dioxide Connection

Mosquitoes are attracted to the carbon dioxide (CO2) we produce and can sense it up to 160 feet away. Some of us naturally produce more carbon dioxide and are targeted more than others. A prime example is larger or heavier people, who tend to exhale more gases.  *A not-so-fun fact: we exhale CO2 through our nose and mouth, which is why we hear mosquitoes buzzing around our ears, waking us up at night.

A Warning for Pregnant Women

Keeping in line with the CO2 connection, unfortunately, mosquitoes are naturally attracted to some pregnant women, who give off more – an estimated 20% more carbon dioxide – than non-pregnant women. Pregnant women need to be extra vigilant to protect themselves and their unborn baby from the Zika virus.

Your Blood Type May Be More Appetizing

O(h) – really. Your blood type could get you in trouble. And what blood type attracts mosquitoes? Studies find that in a controlled setting, mosquitoes landed on people with Type O blood nearly twice as often as those with Type A blood. So, there may be a connection to your genes.

Change the Color of Your Clothing, Change Your Luck

Some research suggests that wearing dark-colored clothing can put you on a mosquito’s radar because those colors resemble the “insects” – mammals that mosquitoes usually target. Scientists also say that mosquitoes are visual beings and spot darker clothing more easily and quicker. There’s an easy solution: lighten it up by wearing lighter-color, looser clothing when you’re outside.

We Can Help You Battle Annoying Mosquitoes

Now that you know why some mosquitoes bite certain people more than others, perhaps you’ll change your game plan, and that can start with an excellent solution for mosquito control.

There is more than one way to keep your property free of mosquitoes and no-see-ums. We do not just mean simple store-bought methods like citronella candles and bug sprays (which, as we have said in the past, tend to be relatively ineffective and even dangerous). Some of the more comprehensive options include mosquito mist systems and the practice known as “mosquito fogging.” The question then becomes: which should you choose for your own home?

What Exactly Are These Systems?

Mosquito mist systems consist of a series of nozzles installed around the perimeter landscaping of property as well as interior nozzles around the home. At certain times of the day, these nozzles automatically mist for 30-45 seconds. These systems are much like sprinkler systems; only instead of watering the grass, their mist helps get rid of mosquitoes, no-see-ums, and other pests around your home.

The term “mosquito fogging” may sound similar to “mosquito misting,” but there are significant differences between the two practices. The machine used for fogging is meant to be held in the user’s hands, as one would do with a leaf blower. People can operate these by connecting a canister of insecticide and pulling the trigger to release the chemicals.

How Long Do They Last?

Mosquito fogging may clear away insects from whichever areas you sprayed. However, this is a short-term method. Those areas may be insect-free for a few days, and going outside without returning inside covered with bug bites might be doable. However, the mosquitoes and no-see-ums will be back before long. When that happens, you will have to fire up the fogging machine and do this all over again.

On the other hand, you can set mosquito misting systems to go off a few times a day. Doing so allows for a continuous mist that continually drives any pests away from that space. Each nozzle releases the insect repellant over a substantial area, meaning that the entire system could potentially cover the whole property. With each With each 30-45 second spray constantly renewing the potency of the mist, the system can get rid of insects.

What Do I Have to Do?

The act of mosquito fogging is more hands-on than the misting system. The owner of the fogging machine needs to carry it around and operate it manually. Moreover, the fogging machine is only effective around the areas where it points – similar to how a lawnmower just cuts the grass beneath it, not around it. If someone wants to clear their entire backyard of bugs, they have to pace every inch of it.

Meanwhile, mosquito misting systems are automatic. You can time them to go off at specific moments each day, and they will spray on their own. Plus, with their multiple nozzles, these systems can sweep broader areas than just wherever they are pointed. No handling is necessary – all you would need to do is to add more solution whenever it runs out. Homeowners who prefer not having to fire up a machine every few days may find this option far preferable.

Mosquito mist systems definitely carry many advantages over mosquito fogging. If you want to stop worrying about pests and start truly enjoying your own backyard and patio, you can get your very own mosquito mist system set up right away.
