There are several companies in the industry today that provide monthly spraying for mosquitoes and other pests. These companies arrived in Oklahoma several years ago and are still around, but they are not advertising as aggressively as they were when they burst onto the scene. There are probably multiple factors for that, but that is not what I want to talk to you about. That is just something I have noticed and find it interesting.
These services that spray on a monthly basis claim that their product will eliminate mosquitoes for 30 to 45 days guaranteed. I have always found that extremely hard to believe and still do. I have talked to several customers who have used these services and they all say that yes, the product works, but not as long as they claim it does. Some still use these services while others have stopped.
The main reason for this is mother nature. It is simple. Rain will diminish the effects of the product. If they happen to spray on a breezy day, not all of the application gets applied to your yard and shrubbery. There are also other factors that come into play, which are mowing of the grass, fertilization and irrigation of the grass and shrubbery. These factors and others will diminish the strength and effectiveness of the once a month mosquito spray application.
Exo Design offers a better more reliable alternative to mosquito protection and that is an automated mosquito misting system. These systems are amazingly simple and can be installed in a matter of hours depending on the size and complexity of the system. They also ward off spiders, ticks, flies, wasps, and many other pests.
These systems are made up by installing a tank the size of a regular round trash can that has a lid with a motor and controller attached to the lid. You then connect some small 1/4 inch tubing (tubing comes in multiple colors to match house trim or fence color) and install a small misting nozzle every 10 to 12 feet around the perimeter of the back patio, back yard or other areas where you like to enjoy yourself outdoors. The controller is then programmed to run at designated times of the day for 45 to 60 seconds at a time to ward off the mosquitoes and other pests. The system also comes with a remote control that can be used to run extra cycles if desired or to stop a cycle for some reason if desired.
These mosquito systems build up a residual affect and are at your service 24/7, so you have full time protection even when it rains or after irrigating your lawn and shrubbery. This is a quote from a customer who has one of these systems. His house backs up to a pond in his neighborhood.
“When we moved in here, since we are next to the pond, we were always getting spider webs on the house, had mosquitoes, flies and other pests flying around so much, we didn’t want to spend any time outside in the back yard. We also needed the outside of the house cleaned quite a bit to remove the cobwebs and wasp nests. Once we had this system installed, the house cleanings were drastically reduced, and we spend every minute we can outside now. It was worth every penny”.
