Mosquitoes on and around your horses and other areas of your barn are both a nuisance and a hazard. Mosquitoes can carry several diseases that can be transmitted to horses including Equine Encephalitis and West Nile Virus. If left untreated, these diseases can lead to serious illness or even death. They symptoms of early disease are so common with other illnesses that these diseases could easily go untreated. Symptoms include flu-like symptoms such as fever, drowsiness, and inability to swallow.
Mosquito Squad of Nashville has a mosquito control system designed specifically for barns to protect your horses and other animals. The system is a misting system that’s installed to mist automatically at pre-scheduled times. The mist is made of safe ingredients including Permethrin which is a synthetic form of the natural insecticide in flowers.
With the misting system, hoses are installed over every stall, over the common areas, and over the entry ways. A fine mist is dispensed at intervals throughout the day and night to control mosquitoes. Our misting systems can be up to 90 or 95% effective!
In addition, our systems kill ticks and also prevent other flying insects.
Now is a great time to install a misting system in time for next spring. Give us a ring.
