What Are Mosquito Misting Systems?
Misting systems are tools that automatically generate sprays of insecticides to prevent the proliferation of annoying mosquitoes on premises of residential and commercial properties. These tools are readily available for purchase.
Additionally, misting systems produce insecticide sprays registered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Examples of these insecticides are natural pyrethrins and synthetic pyrethroids. Insecticides with minimal risks are also compatible to be used with misting systems.
The latter insecticides, though, have not been registered with EPA nor assessed for proof of effective uses. Below is the additional information about mosquito misting services that Knockout Mosquito Systems provides. These services aid you in safekeeping sanitary premises and healthy well-being:
