With the wet spring and early summer we’ve had, the mosquitoes are out in full force. Mosquito Squad of Columbia’s motto is “fight the bite” and we have many ways we go about doing so. Our barrier spray program is highly effective at eliminating mosquitoes and ticks. Another effective treatment method is our misting systems which provide the ultimate in mosquito protection.
Depending on your situation, an automatic misting system may be an excellent choice for your mosquito control needs based on providing total control. The system works by emitting a fine mist around a designated area for mosquito elimination. Nozzles for the spray can be installed on fence lines or around the perimeter of the home to protect the entire yard. Alternatively, nozzles may also be fitted to parts of your outdoor living areas. Each nozzle is attached to tubing that leads to the system’s product supply. As programmed, the fine mist is automatically released providing you with the protection your family needs. Easily adjustable, you can choose how many times your yard is misted each day which is typically between two two four times. The system also has a remote control allowing you to opt for additional or fewer sprays to suit your needs. The misting system component consists of inconspicuous nylon tubing that connects strategically placed, corrosion-resistant nickel-plated stainless-steel nozzles. The best part is that the unit is automatically filled, serviced and winterized by Mosquito Squad of Columbia so you never need to lift a finger.
Mosquito Squad of Columbia’s misting systems are used in residential, light commercial, and barn installations. We have the ability to customize our product dependent on the pest we are going after in your individual situation. We set the misting systems to spray during the times when the mosquitoes are most active which is generally dusk until dawn. Our misting systems are also a favorite among horse owners and are widely used in horse stable settings to control both flies, horse flies and mosquitoes.
For horse owners and enthusiasts our automatic misting systems pack a punch by controlling mosquitoes that could potentially infect your beloved equine with Eastern Equine Encephalitis and also protecting them from nagging flies. When we install our systems for use in barn settings we install one spray head per 12 foot stall. These are set to disperse at variable times throughout the day for maximum control. Unlike the residential application which primarily targets mosquitoes and is set to disperse during the dusk to dawn hours, our barn misting systems primarily target flies which are more active during the day. Our special formula is designed so that flies cannot develop resistance thereby rendering the treatment ineffective. Resistance to fly sprays is a major concern for horse owners because flies can evolve so quickly so that your fly control will no longer be effective.
With the growing awareness of mosquito-borne illnesses, it’s also nice to know you have a solution you can depend on. Mosquito- and tick-borne illnesses are certainly something to keep in mind. Some of these diseases include West Nile Virus, Encephalitis, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and Lyme disease.
Whether you own and operate a stable, commercial venue or are a homeowner wishing the mosquitoes would just disappear, we can make your wish come true.
