What’s the Best Way to Maintain a Mosquito Misting System?


Most experts agree that the best option to control biting and flying insects that wreak havoc on summer activities is a mosquito control system. A mosquito control system, also known as a mosquito misting system, disburses a fine mist of pesticide that kills biting insects around your home. Of course, after the mosquito control system is set up and becomes operational, it must be periodically maintained to continue working at top efficiency.

Mosquito System Maintenance

The effectiveness of mosquito control systems goes beyond the word of pest control experts. A vast number of satisfied customers will vouch for their usefulness in the battle against no-see-ums and other biting insects. This raises our original question: what’s the best way to maintain a mosquito misting system? The answer is simple: maintenance.

Regular and proper maintenance is the key to maintaining your mosquito misting system. Performing scheduled maintenance on the system should limit the financial burdens associated with repairing the system and provide you and your family with years of protection from biting insects and other pests.  Maintenance begins with ensuring that the misting nozzles do not clog. If they become dirty or clogged, the quantity and quality of the mist will markedly decrease, similar to a clogged shower head. Soaking the nozzles in white vinegar for 30 to 60 minutes should clear them up. Next, be sure the lines are free from leaks. Leaks in fittings, or anywhere in the lines, will seriously reduce the effectiveness of the system.

How to Fix a Misting System

Most owners of mosquito misting systems have contracts with a professional misting service to refill their system when it is running low on misting mixture. Pest control professionals, such as SWAT Mosquito Systems®️, have staff who are also available to fix a misting system that is not functioning properly. While some people choose to do minor system maintenance activities on their own, many owners choose to utilize a professional service to refill, maintain, and repair their misting system as needed.
