Mosquito Misting Systems vs. Other Mosquito Control Methods

You’ve probably heard by now that mosquito misting has become the most popular method for controlling the mosquito population in the area, but is it really better than all of the other countless forms of mosquito control that are available? We’re here to put them to the test! Follow the professionals at SWAT Mosquito Systems Miami and Fort Lauderdale as we compare mosquito misting systems with other mosquito control methods to give you a definitive answer.

The Difference Between Mosquito Misting And Fogging (Is There One?)

Fogging and misting may sound extremely similar, but the results are like night and day. There are many undesirable qualities to fogging, such as the fact that the spray is incredibly toxic, applying it requires a professional and that it only offers temporary results. Since fogging doesn’t last, it gets rather pricey calling for services every time you need it, not to mention the inconvenience that comes with scheduling the service.

On the contrary, mosquito misting systems emit a natural solution from a tank that can last you a long while as opposed to a one-time use. This means that you can experience a mosquito-free yard for months before needing to call a specialist for a refill. This also makes it a more cost-effective choice.

What About Store-Bought Sprays?

Many people would rather make a trip out to their local retailer to buy a DIY bug spray thinking that’s the fastest way to get relief from biting bugs, but the effects are even less fruitful than fogging which makes it a complete waste of money. Again, misting systems still come out on top in comparison to these store-bought sprays.

Misting Systems vs. Other Mosquito Control Devices

It can be tempting to go with mosquito zappers and traps after hearing the audible cues that they are indeed attracting and killing bugs. But have you ever taken a closer look at the type of bugs that are getting caught in them? There is actually a legitimate concern regarding zappers and traps having a negative impact on the environment because they’re eliminating all of the useful bugs like pollinators which help our plants thrive. Meanwhile, pesky bugs like mosquitoes and no-see-ums get by Scott-free. Misting systems are effective against mosquitoes in a way that’s safe for the environment.

Surely, screen enclosures must be safe for the ecosystem, right? Technically, that’s true. However, these screens do nothing to eliminate the problem. All they do is limit the area you’re able to occupy, and there is still a chance that the occasional mosquito can make its way through. Instead of going with an eyesore that barely does half the job, misting systems can get rid of the problem while allowing you to utilize the entire landscape.
