The terms “fogger” and “misting system” are sometimes used interchangeably, and in fact, there doesn’t appear to be a lot of difference to the naked eye. Fogging and misting each consist of fine droplets produced by a pressure and nozzle size combination. But a closer look indicates several vital factors that show significant contrast between the two—differences that can considerably impact today’s homeowner.
Fogger vs. Misting System Cost
If you want to eliminate mosquitoes and other annoying insects in your home and garden, you can purchase a high-quality compact misting system for less than $1,000. If you’re looking to continuously treat outdoor and indoor spaces, consider investing in the Mistmaster and Overhead Kit or additional nozzles for your treatment needs, in total, ranging from about $1,060 to $1,300. Misting and fogging differ in three crucial factors: droplet size, coverage, and accuracy.
The Mistmaster will serve you indefinitely, as it uses fewer chemicals than fogging and can be targeted more accurately, providing ongoing savings and a benefit to the planet. On the other hand, foggers require that users often change the pump – the Mistmaster is built to last, meaning you won’t have to buy a new device every 6 months.
The Mistmaster functions with a dripless feature so you won’t have to worry about wasting product, and money. As a result, the mosquito misting system cost is substantially lower and the process is safer.
Why Does Droplet Size Favor a Mosquito Misting Machine?
Here is the primary factor in the fogger vs. misting system debate. Fogging pumps produce ultra-small droplets of 1 to 10 microns, while misting pumps deliver larger-sized droplets of 10 to 100 microns.
Those smaller droplets from fogging merely float in the air and settle where they please. Think about smoke coming from a pipe or vapor from a boiling tea kettle. They don’t have enough mass to support a steady speed through the air, so it’s impossible to determine the fog’s trajectory and where it will end. In other words, fogging is inaccurate, and no one can predict where it will land.
Other Applications for Foggers and Misting Systems
Since foggers are not ideal for controlling mosquitoes and other pests, are there other applications? Yes. Foggers can help control humidity in specific environments, such as animal enclosures in zoos or greenhouses. Also, the entertainment industry uses foggers to create special effects or fog-like atmospheres.
A versatile mosquito misting solution, such as the Mistmaster 3-in-1 Compact Misting System, controls mosquitoes and other flying and crawling pests. Still, it can function as a sanitizer, odor neutralizer, and plant nourisher. Various accessories, including nozzles, risers, and wands, help to make all this flexibility possible.
An array of treatment options also add to the versatility of the mosquito misting machine. Here is a sampling of our safe products that can be used in the Mistmaster:
