November 28, 2023

Doing something yourself is great for the satisfaction of creating a solution on your own, especially when using nothing but your own two hands, and maybe a local hardware store or two. DIY-ers have many reasons for seeking out DIY projects. Doing something on your own can save money, reuse resources, and help you learn practical, real-life skills.

With the benefits of doing things yourself, it is no wonder that some people wish to protect their outdoor spaces from mosquitoes on their own. Keep reading for advice from the experts at MosquitoNix® and learn how to take matters into your own hands and start protecting your outdoor play spaces today.

Safety First

Before learning more on how to rid your outdoor spaces of pesky mosquitoes and other flying insects, it is important to follow safety precautions. When using chemicals and insecticides, follow all directions, heed all safety precautions, and as always, keep any chemicals out of the reach of pets and children.

Homemade fogging machines are never recommended due to the danger of inhaling chemicals, fire hazards, burn hazards, and the danger of poisoning the breathing air of people around the machine. For your safety and the safety of others around you, please do not attempt to build your own mosquito fogging machine.

What is DIY Mosquito Fogging?

A mosquito fogging system is a machine that disperses insecticide in aerosol form. The insecticide is dispersed in the air, killing mosquitoes within a certain distance of the machine. There are two types of mosquito foggers: a thermal fogger and a cold fogger.

A thermal mosquito fogger is a machine that uses heat to vaporize and disperse the substance used to kill any mosquitoes in the outdoor space. A cold fogger also vaporizes and disperses the substance but does so using air pressure, instead of heat.

Mosquito foggers are an effective way to control the life cycle of mosquitoes and are a popular option when preparing an outdoor space for an event. Many people choose to use an eco-friendly fogging service before their outdoor wedding, concert, or party. Foggers are an effective pest management solution.

The only DIY Mosquito fogger recommended to use safely, is a fogger that you can operate on your own, like our MosquitoNix® On-The-Go misting system.

Because a fogger is dispersing a substance that can be inhaled, it is never recommended to build your own fogger. Homemade mosquito foggers are not a safe option for mosquito control. A person who attempts a homemade system is not only endangering themselves but are also endangering the people around them.

Why is Protection Important?

A cloud of mosquitoes can quickly ruin any backyard event. Not only are the flying insects annoying, but they can also be dangerous to our health. When a mosquito bites you or a loved one, it not only makes you a meal, but it also can transmit deadly diseases through the bite.

Around the world, mosquitoes have been known to transmit up to six different types of deadly diseases:

  • Malaria
  • West Nile Virus
  • Dengue
  • Zika
  • Yellow Fever
  • Chikungunya

Mosquito fogging is an effective way to protect your outdoor spaces and the people and pets who enjoy them.
