Mosquito Control Methods

  1. Manually apply an environmentally safe concentrate or pesticide on the lawn using a mist blower or lawn sprayer. (Also known as Barrier Treatment.)

    • Reaches areas where misting systems and Skeet-R-Gone system can’t.
    • Most inexpensive method.
    • Great for special events.
  2. Skeet-R-Gone System
    • Uses your sprinkler system to distribute the Bug Slug concentrate.
    • People and Pet friendly solution.
    • Cost varies depending on yard size/area to be covered.
    • Free estimates available.
    • Application

      Skeet-R-Gone is an easy to operate pest control unit that can be installed onto any new or existing sprinkler system. Skeet-R-Gone utilizes your sprinkler to distribute an eco-safe concentrate over your entire lawn eliminating both mature and larvae mosquitoes, and other pests. Give us a call if you are interested in the Skeet-R-Gone system.  We will provide a custom estimate tailored for your property.
      Liquid concentrate is injected into an existing sprinkler system by a 160 PSI pump that is housed in an exterior enclosure. This enclosure also houses the concentrate.
      The concentrate is pumped through a small tube that connects to a special mixing chamber and saddle valve. These are installed directly onto the water supply after the backflow preventer.
      The pump is controlled by a wiring harness that leads to the Skeet-R-Gone controller, which is mounted next to the sprinkler system control panel.


        3. Install a misting system that uses a timer to mist all or part of your yard two-three times daily.

Do Mosquito Misting Systems Really Work?

The most convincing evidence that this innovative mosquito treatment really works is the explosive growth in the market.

mosquito misting systems were called fly control systems or fly spray systemsBarn fly spray systems or fly control systems have been used to protect expensive racehorses from biting flies for decades. In the late '90s, entrepreneurs in Texas began to adapt this technology for outdoor mosquito control in a residential environment. They convinced a few adventuresome homeowners to try the technology, and awareness began to grow.

Word spread at evening cocktail parties as the owners raved about their new mosquito misting system and their guests realized that they would've been forced to flee indoors if the party had been at their house.

chart shows enourmous potential for growth automated mosquito misting systemsFrom a standing start fifteen years ago, it is estimated there are 50,000 – 60,000 operating mosquito misting and automatic insect control systems currently at work in the U.S. And MistAway Mosquito Misting Systems manufactured systems account for almost half of that figure. You wouldn't see that kind of growth if this innovative approach to outdoor mosquito control weren't truly effective.

Outdoor Mosquito Control with Mosquito Misting

When you want to take in the pleasures of your own yard - patio or pool, fun with kids or parties with adults - you deserve to do so in complete comfort. You shouldn't have to be at the mercy of annoying insects, mosquitoes, no-see-ums and their painful bites. Fortunately, you won't be with MistAway - the revolutionary automatic mosquito misting system.

A mosquito control misting system automatically sprays a very fine mist of botanical insecticide through a series of mosquito misting nozzles installed on your property. Once installed, the system virtually disappears into your landscape. You won't even know it's there. Whatever your requirements, a mosquito misting system can be customized to fit your yard perfectly.

The misting unit's electronic controller is programmed to automatically initiate a 30 - 60 second mosquito-killing mist around dawn and again at dusk, when the mosquitoes are most active and other beneficial insects - like bees and butterflies - are not.

The fine mist drifts around the property and settles on the grass and landscaping, killing any mosquito that comes in contact with it. MistAway's mosquito misting systems can also help control other unwanted insects, like spiders, flies, gnats and no-see-ums.

Life is too short to feel uncomfortable in your own backyard. With a Misting System, you won't have to.

Formulations Used in Mosquito Mist Systems

Botanical - Pyrethrin

The active ingredient in the formulations most commonly used in outdoor insect control and automated mosquito mist systems is called pyrethrin, which is derived from the extract of a certain variety of chrysanthemum flowers.  Though pyrethrin comes from flowers, it is not completely correct to think of it as either “natural” or “organic” because it is highly refined and contains a man-made “synergist” that increases its effectiveness.  When applied in a mist, pyrethrin flushes mosquitoes from foliage where they harbor and then impairs their nervous system.  Shortly after application, the pyrethrin is rapidly degraded by sunlight, and leaves the yard free of residue.

The most common pyrethrin formulation used in mosquito mist systems is called Riptide.



Mosquito Barrier Treatments Are A Three Pronged Attack:

  1. They kill adult mosquitoes
  2. The garlic coated plants keep mosquitoes out of treated area
  3. Suffocates any mosquito larvae in standing water

How To Reduce Mosquito Population:

  • Eliminate large weeds around home and cut grass regularly.
    Adult mosquitoes rest on weeds, shrubs, and other vegetation. A great way to control mosquitoes is reduce the number of areas where adult mosquitoes can find shelter.
  • Drain or eliminate standing water.
    These areas are a great breeding ground where female mosquitoes can lay eggs and the larvae and pupae can develop. Even a discarded soda can or water collecting inside of an old tire hold enough space to support a colony of mosquitoes.
  • Use natural mosquito repellent.
    A mosquito’s sense of smell is about 10,000 times better than yours. They are able to locate humans because they can detect the carbon dioxide that we give off. Many natural mosquito repellents will mask the odor of carbon dioxide. If mosquitoes can’t find you, they can’t bite you and will seek nourishment elsewhere.
