Is Outdoor Misting Effective?
Mosquitoes are such a time-honored pest in the human storybooks that it almost seems impossible to contemplate a system that regularly and reliably gets rid of them and provides safe, enjoyable mosquito-free yards for Atlanta families. Yet at Tuxedo Mosquito, we’re here to tell you that it is possible. We know because we’ve built our business on providing just such reliable services to our customers.
If you’re wondering whether a mosquito misting system will work in your yard, this page is for you. We’ll cover the effectiveness of systems, their recent national growth, and safe practices that enable our customers to use such systems year after year without worry.
Misting technology to control insects is not new. It’s been used for the last 30 years in barns to protect expensive racehorses from biting flies. In 1999, a Houston entrepreneur expanded these systems for mosquito control use in yards and gardens. Since then, customers across the nation, as well as our own, have reported a significant decrease in the pesky bugs associated with the installation and use of such systems.
But really, the most convincing evidence is good old social proof. Explosive market growth across the U.S. is testament to the effectiveness of misting. In fact, we estimate that there are now 40,000 – 50,000 working systems in the country, most of them installed in the past 8 years. Only a truly effective technology would be so popular.
We don’t protect your yard at the expense of your health. Instead, we use plant-based insecticides to create a shield around your yard, through which mosquitoes don’t penetrate. Because we’re a family-owned business that values health and safety, we will always take the safe, eco-friendly path.
Tuxedo Mosquito takes mosquito misting and mosquito control seriously. Our business has been providing customers with safe, effective systems for over 10 years, and we would love to bring our experience to your yard as well.
