MOSQUITO CONTROL – WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP!
Mosquito control in Southwest Florida seems to be a never-ending fight. And if you are like most people you probably think you and your family are mosquito magnets. For some of our children and us, a bite from a single mosquito will have us itching for some time. Not to mention mosquito bites are more than just a nuisance they can also carry harmful diseases for pets, livestock & our families.
But what can you do to help reduce the mosquito population at your home or business? The Florida Department of Health offers they easy tips.
- Drain standing water in pots, gutters, fountains, trash cans and more
- Keep swimming pools properly balanced
- Cover your skin with clothing
- Use EPA-approved mosquito repellent
- Keep doors closed, cover windows with screens to keep mosquitoes out
The reality is no matter how diligent you are in removing possible mosquito breeding areas in your lawn and landscape if your neighbors aren’t mosquitoes can just easily fly into your yard.

OUR MOSQUITO CONTROL SYSTEMS VERUS OTHER SYSTEMS
Only female mosquitoes bite but all No-See-Ums bite. Mosquitoes and No-See-Ums life cycles from eggs to attacking adults are rather quick, around four to six weeks. Making new pests seemly turn into attacking adults every day. When considering purchasing a mosquito control system, there are two considerations. Do you want a temporary short-term solution that requires monthly repeat visits from a provider? Or do you want a lasting solution that works every day that is fully automated and requires virtually no effort?
Backpack Fogging Systems – Temporary Mosquito Control & No-See-Um Control Solutions
There are a few backpack type fogging systems that provide temporary relief from the bits of mosquitoes, no-see-ums, and other pests. But once mosquitoes and no-see-ums become adults only another backpack fogging will provide relief from attacking pests. Because these pesky bugs become adults almost every day and if you want lasting protection you may need to have multiple monthly backpack fogging applications.
Our Mosquito Misting Systems – Lasting Mosquito Control & No-See-Um Control Solutions
Our Mistaway systems operate very similarly to an irrigation system. They are automated and timed to dispense a fine mist of planned doses of an all-natural insecticide around your entire property, essentially creating a shield around your home or business. With 2 or 3 automated sprays per day, you will kill any mosquitoes, no-see-ums and other biting pests that come your way without lifting a finger.
WE KILL MOSQUITOES AND NO-SEE-UMS WITH FLOWERS
Our automatic mosquito misting systems spray a very fine mist of botanical insecticide called pyrethrin. Pyrethrin is made from the extract of a particular variety of chrysanthemum flowers. Through a series of mosquito misting nozzles strategically placed around your property, this mist settles on your landscaping, killing any mosquito that comes into contact.
Two Components of Our Mosquito Misting Systems
The control unit houses the central operating systems and comes in either our innovative tankless mosquito misting model or our traditional drum-based model. The automated control unit is installed most anywhere that is convenient to a water faucet and electrical outlet.
Your system, using a preset automatic timer, is best activated around dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are the most active for thirty-five seconds each time. Based on the input from each owner the mosquito control misting cycles can be decreased or increased to maximize the desired effectiveness.
An easy to use remote control or our smartphone app is supplied with every system. These controls can also be used to set or reset the timing and duration of misting cycles from up to 300 feet away. Planning a special outdoor event and want to ensure a little extra protection? Just use your remote or smartphone to activate and turn on a quick misting spray. The controller also displays when tank levels are low, so you never run out of insecticide unexpectedly.
Precision engineered mosquito misting nozzles are connected to a series of pressurized tubing attached to the control unit. Nozzles are installed about every 10-15 feet around the perimeter of your property; on fence lines, trees and risers positioned in the landscaping for a mosquito-free yard.
When activated the nozzles spray a fine mist that drifts around your property and settles on the landscaping and grass, killing unwanted pests like mosquitoes, no-see-ums, spiders and over 130 other biting pests. We can also install zoning kits upon request, which help manage large installations. Like a sprinkler system, two separate nozzle circuits can be connected, and each can have its pre-determined misting schedule.
