Outdoor Misting System Costs

Outdoor Cost Guides      Landscapers      Outdoor Misting System Costs

An outdoor misting system, sometimes called a mosquito misting system, is becoming quite common in residential areas, as it can help to keep mosquitos and other pests under control around the home. It is important to keep in mind that there are different models available. Some of the outdoor misting systems are only going to provide you with water spray, which can help to keep the outdoor area cooler and deliver water to plants. Other systems will include chemicals that will help to repel the aforementioned pests.

The outdoor misting system cost is going to vary substantially from one model to another. Some of the models are quite cheap and may cost well under $100, while other systems are more complex and can cost $5,000 or more. The mosquito misting system will generally cost between $1,000 to $1,800. Most systems, especially those that only have water misting capabilities, are going to be less expensive.
