What is a Mosquito Fogger?

A mosquito fogger is a special machine powered by electricity or propane that produces very tiny droplets that hang in the air — which produces a fog. The fog will remain in the air for a period of time before settling on the ground or anything directly below it. Ideally, the fog’s chemical ingredients will cover mosquito resting sites.

How is it Administered?

Mosquito bombs and foggers must be administered correctly to help avoid any health hazards. Certain safety equipment and clothing is necessary. Therefore, it’s best to leave the “fogging” to professionals. 
 

Will a Mosquito Fogger Provide Continuous Protection?

Mosquito foggers are best used before a backyard event or any outdoor special occasion for temporary relief from mosquito bites, as they are only effective at repelling mosquitoes in a concentrated area and for a short period of time — often only a few hours, depending on the product.
