How Does Mosquito Fogging Work?

Mosquito fogging is a popular form of pest control for both residential and commercial spaces. It is a pest control method that involves combining an insecticide with water to create a substance that is sprayed in the air. In the hands of a pest control expert, fogging can yield great results.

How does it work?

Mosquito fogging works by misting the air with a water and chemical solution using fogging machines or foggers. It is the ideal mosquito control method for places inundated with mosquitoes. While it works very well with active mosquitoes, it is not a one-time solution for infestation. In extreme cases, there might be a need for repeated treatment after some time.

You can buy a mosquito fogger or hire a professional in mosquito control in Singapore to set up a fogging treatment in your yard. The amount of chemicals in fogging products is low enough so as not to harm humans. However, if you have pets around that can likely ingest plants or bugs misted with pesticides, you should take extra precautions.

 

How to ensure mosquito fogging effectiveness?

As mentioned earlier, mosquito fogging works well with active mosquitoes. By installing a fogger, it can reduce mosquitoes by as much as 90% based on studies. However, for killing larvae, you need to apply larvicides for nests and larvae.

A company like Greencare can provide an all-encompassing pest control program that will deal with the eggs, larvae, and adult mosquitoes on your property. We can take care of your mosquito problem from end to end to ensure that pests will stay away for a long time.

 

When is mosquito fogging applied?

Mosquitoes come out to feed at night. This is the ideal time to set up your mosquito foggers or have your professional pest exterminator conduct mosquito fogging. If you plan to hold an outdoor party, do the fogging at least a day ahead of the event.

 

Is fogging safe for humans and animals?

Compared to farming pesticides, the amount of chemicals in foggers is low. Thus, it is safe to inhale by both humans and animals. However, it can still harm pets that will accidentally eat plants sprayed by the fogging solution. To protect your pets, don’t let them out immediately after a mosquito fogging.
