Will Rain Wash Away My Mosquito Treatment?

Frequent exposure to the rain may have you wondering if it’s even worth it to apply mosquito treatment during this time. But what other choice do you have for fending off mosquitoes in an environment that’s constantly wet like the entire state of Florida? Your average store-bought mosquito treatment will likely wash away, but the experts at SWAT Mosquito Systems Miami and Fort Lauderdale are here to introduce mosquito misting products as an effective solution that stays strong during rainfall.

How DIY Mosquito Sprays React to Rain

If you were planning on rushing to the store to buy a DIY bug spray, you should be warned that many factors determine its effectiveness. For one, you’re already not sure if the product you buy will work on its own, let alone in the rain. Most mosquito treatments that you apply yourself are designed to dry up where it’s applied and claim to be water-resistant, but heavy rainfall that’s all too common in Florida still has the capacity to break down the hardened barrier and render it useless.

Even after understanding how store-bought mosquito treatment works, finding the small window for the best results can feel nearly impossible. It can take anywhere from two to four hours to completely harden, and you can’t apply it while it’s already raining. That means you have to predict the perfect time of day when it’s dry and there’s at least a 2-hour period of calm before it begins to rain. Weather isn’t always predictable no matter how often you check the reports. Alternatively, you can choose a mosquito treatment that’s guaranteed to work without needing to worry about weather conditions.

Mosquito Misting: The Better Choice for Rainfall

While DIY bug sprays consist of a heavy liquid that’s meant to drown the area it’s applied to, mosquito misting solutions gently spray and disburse a light mist into the air where it stays airborne. This method makes it so it’s unaffected by the rain, and it stays active where mosquitoes are more likely to be flying around. You don’t have to worry about applying a layer of liquid yourself and making sure there’s enough time to let it dry. With automated misting systems, you can get guaranteed results regardless of the weather without you having to put in any work.
