The misting system will make it more comfortable for you, your family and your guests to enjoy the pool, or just to sit in the backyard for a barbecue or some drinks.

There are many different types and sizes of mosquito misting systems available on the market today.

Other considerations and costs

  • The size of your yard and the area you need to mist for mosquitos is an important factor to consider when choosing the misting system. Make sure you have a unit that is powerful enough for your square footage.
  • In addition to the cost of the misting system, you also have to consider the cost of the insecticide. This will be an ongoing cost.
  • Make sure you are only using insecticides that are legal to use in your area.
  • To help reduce the number of mosquitos in the yard, make sure that you also remove any standing water that might be on the property.

DIY considerations

  • You can install the mosquito misting system on your own, and it can save you a substantial amount since you will not have to pay for installation.
  • The systems on the market will have instructions on how to install them, so make sure you are following those instructions exactly.
