Automatic Mosquito Misting Systems – A “Must” in the Greater Tampa Bay area

Posted by Mosquito Squad

December 20, 2023

When you purchased your home on the west coast of Florida you thought that a screened in porch /patio or lanai would be the best way to enjoy the outdoors. A screened enclosure is certainly nice to have however, it is not the total answer to avoid the constant bug issues that come with living in Florida. Although screens and lanais are helpful, they do not prevent biting insects from entering your property as they still come in when doors are opened, when children and pets go outside and some can even fit through the screens themselves.

At Mosquito Squad of Tampa Bay, we truly believe that every yard in this part of the country needs an automatic mosquito control misting system. Our system not only kills mosquitoes, it takes down no-see-ums, flies, fleas, spiders, ticks and many other biting insects. Life in our beautiful corner of the world was meant to be enjoyed but you can’t do that if you are constantly trying to avoid the pests that also relish our environment. Misting systems allow you, your family and pets to enjoy your yard. Let us give you just a few examples of what a misting system can do even if you already have a screened enclosure.

  • You can get out of the screened enclosure. Sitting inside no substitute for the open outdoors. Especially if you have kids and pets, they need to be able to get out and use their energy in the yard.
  • Screen enclosures and lanais are known to become covered with midges, spiders, and spider webs. Just because the bugs aren’t on you, that doesn’t make it any less creepy to be surrounded by them. Misting systems help control midges and spiders too, among many other insects.
  • If you live near water you know the midges come out at night. Misting systems can be timed just perfectly to keep them away.
  • Hurricanes. Often times the worst part of a hurricane is the aftermath. Flooding and standing water lead to a sudden excess of mosquitoes. With misting systems, you have the power to mist whenever you need with your Smartphone and/or manual remote, so if extra treatments are needed it’s at your fingertips.
  • Misting systems are there for you all year long, on demand. For example, maybe you’ve turned off the automatic mist for the winter months but if there is a sudden spike in temperature mid-winter, you can use your Smartphone and/or manual remote to treat your property on demand, when you like.
  • Our mosquito misting system is definitely more cost-effective than home additions such as screened enclosures and lanais. If you already have screens/lanai, after installing our misting system, you may even want to take them down to fully enjoy your yard without unsightly screens and obstructed views.
