Which Type of Mosquito Control Product Is Right for Your Home?

With recent scientific advances, experts have gained a greater understanding of mosquitos and their bites. With this understanding has come the development of many mosquito repellants, however, some of these products are better than others. Here’s a quick look at the various mosquito control products that are currently available:

Mosquito trappers
A mosquito trapping device typically uses carbon dioxide to attract mosquitos to its fan mechanism, which then sucks the mosquitos into a collection bag. While this system seems to work well for small populations of mosquitos, it isn’t very effective for South Florida mosquito populations. In addition, these systems often cost much more than most people are willing to spend on mosquito control. 

Ultrasonic devices
If you’re looking for a more inexpensive option, you can consider an ultrasonic mosquito control device. However, though these systems claim to repel mosquitos with ultrasonic tones, they’ve had very limited success.  

Bug zappers
A bug zapper uses an ultraviolet light to lure insects into a trap, where they are promptly electrocuted. While bug zappers attract mosquitos, they also attract a whole host of other insects. Many of these insects eat mosquitos, and their elimination can cause the total numbers of mosquitos in an area to rise.

Misting systems
Misting systems kill and repel mosquitos by emitting a combination of natural and synthetic insecticides at pre-set intervals. The misting system from Platinum Mosquito Protection, for example, can be set up to protect any property under any conditions. You’ll find that misting systems are reasonably priced and can effectively accommodate your mosquito control needs.
