electronic controller is programmed to
automatically initiate a 30 - 60 second
mosquito-killing mist around dawn and again
at dusk, when the mosquitoes are most active

butterflies - are not.
The fine mist drifts
around the property and settles on the grass
and landscaping, killing any mosquito that
comes in contact with it. MistAway's
mosquito misting systems can also help

Formulations Used in Mosquito Mist Systems
Botanical - Pyrethrin
The active ingredient in
the formulations most commonly used in
outdoor insect control and automated
mosquito mist systems is called pyrethrin, which
is derived from the extract of a certain
variety of chrysanthemum flowers. Though pyrethrin comes from flowers, it is not
completely correct to think of it as either
“natural” or “organic” because it is highly
refined and contains a man-made “synergist”
that increases its effectiveness. When
applied in a mist, pyrethrin flushes
mosquitoes from foliage where they harbor
and then impairs their nervous system.
Shortly after application, the pyrethrin is
rapidly degraded by sunlight, and leaves the
yard free of residue.
The most common
pyrethrin formulation used in mosquito mist
systems is called Riptide.

Man-Made Botanical – Permethrin
developed a synthetic variant of pyrethrin,
called permethrin, that has most of the same
characteristics as pyrethrin. An important
difference is that the man-made permethrin
is not as readily destroyed by sunlight and
leaves a longer lasting residue. This can
be desirable if the mosquito activity is
very high or in an application – like an
outdoor restaurant - where the mosquito mist
system should not run during the dusk cycle
because people are around.
The most common
permethrin formulation used in MistAway's
mosquito misting systems is Sector.

The Safety of Mosquito Misting Treatment
Natural pyrethrin and
synthetic permethrin are the most common
formulations used in misting-based mosquito
treatment. They are among the least
poisonous insecticides to mammals, and are
important ingredients in products commonly
found in most homes, like household aerosols
and pet shampoos.
While they are low in
toxicity to people and pets, it is not a
good idea to come into close or frequent
direct contact with the mist. Inhalation can
cause respiratory problems (coughing,
wheezing, etc.) and skin contact can cause a
rash or itching. That's why on every Mist
Away Mosquito Misting System, you'll see a
Caution sign that reads "Do not mist in the
presence of people, pets or food."
The U.S. EPA has
recently published its findings of a
review of pyrethrin and permethrin as used in
automated residential mosquito misting
"Based on its
assessment, using toxicity data and
exposure estimates, EPA does not
expect risks of concern to humans
when these chemicals are used in outdoor
residential systems according to labeling
specific for use in these systems.
However, excessive use or accidents may
pose risks. No pesticide should be
regarded as 100% risk free."
