Frequently Asked Questions
much does a Mosquito Control Mist System
depends on the size of the area to be misted
and how many nozzles will be required for
adequate coverage. For a professionally
installed Mosquito Misting System, you
should expect to spend about what you would
spend for an installed irrigation system for
your home. That is, the larger the property
and area you are trying to protect, the
higher the price. The average cost for a
small system will start in the $1,500.00
price range. For a “representative” home
sitting on a standard quarter-acre lot, plan
on a purchase price in the $2,500 - $4,500
do I know how many nozzles I'll need?
nozzles should be placed approximately every
ten feet along perimeter lines. If there is
abundant landscaping the nozzles should be
placed approximately every eight feet.
does the system repel mosquitoes?
system does not repel mosquitoes, it kills
them, their nest, eggs, and larvae active in
standing water. It continually eliminates
the mosquito population living and breeding
in your landscaping, bushes, grass,
flowerpots, birdbaths, etc.
often will I need to replenish the system?
depends on the number of nozzles, mist
duration, and number of mist cycles per day.
wait! When you want to enjoy your yard you
will probably use the remote for additional
mist cycles to clear the area of pesky
flies, no-see-ums, and mosquitoes that
wander in between scheduled mistings (at
dawn and dusk). This is why we generally say
you can count on replenishing every 90 days
during the peak mosquito season.
choose to mist every other day, or three
days a week, or only on command with the
remote, which would stretch the replenish
cycle even farther out. You are not limited
to every day misting - but for maximum
effect, every day is recommended.

store. You can expect to pay from $125 -
