Our misting systems can emit elements that prevent mosquitoes, gnats, and other creatures from gathering around your home and building. But did you know our misting systems can protect farms and animal enclosures from disease-carrying insects?

If you have a farm or run an animal breeding facility, then a safe and effective misting system is what’s needed to protect them from harm. Horses and white-tail deer are among the most vulnerable to insects that carry dangerous pathogens. Mosquitoes, midges, gnats, and other creatures can induce stress even in the hardiest of animals and stunt their growth.

Mosquitoes are among the most dangerous of species that carry diseases. These creatures are responsible for transmitting more diseases than any other animal species. Mosquitoes are a group of around 3,500 species of small insects that are flies. Mosquito comes from the Spanish, meaning “little fly.” These pests lay eggs on the water’s surface, which hatch into motile larvae that feed on aquatic algae and organic material. Once they mature, they pierce the animal’s or human’s skin and feast on their blood. The process can cause a rash, which is why getting bit by a mosquito is so itchy.

Many mosquito species ingest pathogens while feeding, which can then develop into diseases such as malaria, chikungunya, Zika, and other diseases. All of these can give animals symptoms such as fever and joint pain, and ultimately harm your animals’ health in the long run.

Midges and gnats are a large number of small, usually non-biting flies that can nevertheless do considerable harm to farm and large animals. Like mosquitoes, they develop in standing water, usually stagnant or polluted, as well as in pools, containers, ponds, and in wet soil. They usually live long enough to mate, lay eggs, and die. Midges that do bite can transmit diseases such as bluetongue or Epizootic Hemorrhagic Disease (EHD), which can especially plague deer, as well as Zika and West Nile virus.

Mosquitoes, midges, and gnats all thrive in stagnant, infected water like ponds and other sources of water your horses, deer, pigs, cows, and so forth may drink from. These large animals are vulnerable to getting bitten on by insects that carry dangerous and deadly diseases.
