The Summer of Your Discontent
Summer is here once more, the season for picnics, pool parties, trips to the beach, and other summer fun. It is also the season for mosquito and fly infestations. These can wreak havoc on your picnic, poolside, or general outdoor plans. You may stock up on insect repellent, fly swatters, and even mosquito nets, resigned for yet another season of warding off these pesky pests.
But there may be a hidden cost to these preventive measures. People have been spending $62 million on insect repellent annually since the rise of the Zika virus. Moreover, the average price of bug spray has increased to about $12.66, which is up 23 percent from previous years.
There are also many downsides to insect repellent. For one thing, it is asphyxiating and can cause medical complications years later. And if you buy a natural product, you risk the chance of being vulnerable to mosquito-borne diseases.
So you may hire extermination services. Simple, right? But these are even more expensive, around $350 to $1,900 per season depending on the property type and treatment frequency. Other factors that go into the cost include gasoline and wear and tear on the car, equipment maintenance, the professional’s time and experience, the chemicals, and taxes to pay. Most damnably, these services are also not a permanent solution.
And you may forget about doing the extermination yourself. You can get dangerous chemicals on your clothes, taking it indoors and through your house. The U.S. spent nearly $14 billion on pesticides alone in 2012. Spraying your yard yourself not only costs a lot of money, but it is labor-intensive too.
An automated misting system, on the other hand, is the best long-term solution that will end up costing you less in the long run. Not only that, but a drum-based system requires fewer refills. The insecticide is even cheaper, too, costing anywhere from $0.50 to $1 per ounce.
Mosquitoes and Their Dangers
Perhaps you’d be content to suffer patiently through the slings and arrows of outrageous mosquito bites. But mosquitoes are not just a summer nuisance. They are among the deadliest creatures for humans, causing up to a million deaths per year. This is because they spread dangerous diseases quickly, causing illnesses that could be life-threatening.
Mosquito is a Spanish word, meaning “little flies.” There are up to 3,500 species of mosquitoes. Some are active in the winter months, but the most familiar species thrive in the warmer months, particularly in standing water and other areas.
Mosquitoes reproduce by laying eggs on the water’s surface. These then hatch into motile larvae that feed on aquatic algae and organic material. Once they mature. they pierce a host’s skin and feast on their blood. The mosquito’s saliva transfers to the host during the bite, which can cause a rash.
Many species of mosquitoes ingest pathogens while feeding. These pathogens can develop into diseases such as malaria, dengue, Zika, chikungunya, West Nile virus, and other diseases.
Mosquitoes are responsible for transmitting more diseases than any other animal species. Aedes albopictus and Aedes aegypti are two mosquito species that can transmit chikungunya, which causes fever and joint pain. These can also transmit the West Nile virus.
The dangers of mosquitoes are very real, and short-term solutions may not be the answer. You should not risk the health and safety of your family and loved ones. If you are the owner of a business, clients can be put off by too many bugs and your employees could be at risk, too.

Mosquito misting systems are outdoor application systems that emit elements to prevent mosquitoes from gathering around the home or business. They are safe and will safe you money in the long run compared with bug sprays and extermination services.
Misting systems are also highly effective. According to a research study funded by the state of Florida, conducted by entomologists at Florida A&M University, treated yards managed to reduce their infestations by 71% to 98% compared to untreated yards.
How It Works
To install your misting system, we go to your home and offer a free yard evaluation and give you a quote. If you agree with the quote, we begin installing the nozzles and sprays around your designated area.
We then schedule monthly and bi-monthly visits (whichever is most convenient to you) to help maintain your system.
We then conduct checks on the mist systems, usage levels, and the condition of each nozzle. This will ensure each component works efficiently and is in optimal condition. That way your system will have a more extended usage capacity. Should any of your nozzles wind up broken or have wear and tear, we can fix them or replace them for you.
You can even take some steps yourself to prevent your nozzles from being clogged. When filtering your water, large hard water deposits gather.
To remove these deposits, you must first remove the clogged nozzle and the O-ring from the misting vent. Then soak the clogged misting nozzle or nozzles in white vinegar or CLR. After an hour or more, thoroughly rinse the nozzle. Flush your misting lines. Finally, mount the misting nozzles back into your system.
If these methods don’t work, contact us and we’ll happily replace the nozzles for you.
