When you want to take in the pleasures of your own yard - patio or pool, fun with kids or parties with adults - you deserve to do so in complete comfort. You shouldn't have to be at the mercy of annoying insects, mosquitoes, no-see-ums and their painful bites. Fortunately, you won't be with a Mosquito Control System from Mosquito Muggers - the revolutionary automatic mosquito misting system that effectively eliminates mosquitoes and other biting insects from your yard.

The Mosquito Muggers mosquito control system automatically delivers a fine, precisely measured spray of a Pyrethrin-based or Permethrin insecticide which is the active ingredient found in flea and tick shampoos for pets or used on produce at your local grocery store. The mist sprays through strategically placed spray nozzles that come on 1-4 times a day around the perimeter of the home and or yard, along the fence line, on the trees, as well as throughout the landscaping. The Mosquito Muggers misting system will kill and repel a broad range of nuisance insects. You dramatically reduce nuisance bugs when you want your outdoor areas treated. Any additional spray times can be controlled by you with your remote control on an as needed basis as the system owner. Mosquitoes and bugs are a thing of the past with our automatic bug misting system. Mosquito Muggers utilizes a 55-gallon, 125-gallon, or tankless control unit in both digital and analog options making them virtually maintenance free!



  • BOTANICAL – PYRETHRIN  The active ingredient in the formulations most commonly used in outdoor insect control and automated mosquito mist systems is called pyrethrin, which is derived from the extract of a certain variety of chrysanthemum flowers.  Though pyrethrin comes from flowers, it is not completely correct to think of it as either “natural” or “organic” because it is highly refined and contains a man-made “synergist” that increases its effectiveness.  When applied in a mist, pyrethrin flushes mosquitoes from foliage where they harbor and then impairs their nervous system.  Shortly after application, the pyrethrin is rapidly degraded by sunlight, and leaves the yard free of residue.



  • MAN-MADE BOTANICAL – PERMETHRIN  Scientists have developed a synthetic variant of pyrethrin, called permethrin, that has most of the same characteristics as pyrethrin.  An important difference is that the man-made permethrin is not as readily destroyed by sunlight and leaves a longer lasting residue.  This can be desirable if the mosquito activity is very high or in an application – like an outdoor restaurant - where the mosquito mist system should not run during the dusk cycle because people are around.



Mosquito Muggers Misting System Ownership Costs

For a professionally installed Mosquito Muggers Mosquito Misting System, you should expect to spend about what you would spend for an installed irrigation system for your home.  That is, the larger the property and area you are trying to protect, the higher the price.  For a home sitting on a standard quarter-acre lot, plan on a purchase price in the $2,500 - $4,500 range.  The wide range is a function of the variety of mounting surfaces and obstacles that may be encountered while installing the pyretherum-insecticide misting nozzle circuit.  Mosquito Muggers will always provide a detailed proposal with the total cost to you so there are no surprises. 

Mosquito Muggers Misting System Operating Expenses

The pyrethrum insecticide consumed is driven by the number of misting nozzles in your mosquito system and your daily mist duration.  So, with mist durations being equal, a system with 60 nozzles will consume twice as much insecticide as a system with 30 nozzles.


Though it varies from dealer to dealer, the mosquito mist durations programmed by Mosquito Muggers is fairly standard at about 40 to 60 seconds, with a morning mist scheduled around dawn and an evening mosquito mist just after dusk. For a "representative" home on a quarter acre lot, plan on spending $2.00 – $3.00 per day during the mosquito season for a full-service contract.


In addition to replenishing the pyrethrum insecticide in your Mosquito Muggers mosquito misting system, we offer a contract to provide routine and emergency maintenance as well as startup and winterization services.
