What To Expect When Having A Mosquito Misting System Installed

Do you have a problem with too many mosquitoes around your yard, and are you wondering what you can do about it? You may want to hire a professional to install a mosquito misting system in the area to get rid of these annoying pests. Here is what you need to know about how these mosquito misting systems are installed

The Yard Will Be Mapped Out

A mosquito misting system will require a bit of planning, so you'll want to map out the installation layout before you begin. Make sure that you have a place in mind for where the storage tank will be located that contains the misting solution, which needs to be near a power source and in a place where all of the tubing will connect. The installation map will let the installer know how many nozzles are needed to cover your yard. 

The Storage Tank Will Be Installed

You will put the storage tank in place and connect it to a power source. It may be ideal to put this storage tank in a place that is out of the way, such as near your air conditioner. If you place the storage tank out in the open you will be looking at it all summer long.

The Sprayers Will Be Strategically Installed Around Your Yard

The next step is placing sprayers around your yard so that the misting system will cover all of the problematic areas. This is typically done by running tubing to places where mosquitoes tend to hang out of where the larvae will grow. The sprayers themselves can be as simple as a tube that will eject the mist from it, which can be installed in places like your fencing to encompass your yard. There are also pop-up sprays that can be installed, that look almost like sprinkler heads that go into your gardens.

No matter what kind of sprayers are used, it's important to take the time to install them in a way that will work nicely. This system will remain in your yard throughout the summer, and you do not want to be looking at a misting system that looks ugly because it was not installed with care. 

The System Will Be Tested And Programmed

With everything in place, the system should be tested by running water into the system. Adjustments may be made to the system until you have even coverage. Once everything works, the misting solution will be put into the storage tank. The storage tank will then be programmed for when to distribute the mist, which can be done in the early morning and late evenings when kids and pets are not around and will be safe.
