Mosquito Misting System Features that Matter
Mosquito spray systems are not created equal. And MistAway has an advantage. We are the industry leader by a wide margin, and benefit from having the largest installed base of operating systems. Our advantage is that we let the ideas and experiences of our certified mosquito misting system dealers - who have installed and continue to service almost 15,000 of our systems - drive our engineering and design.
MistAway's misting systems offer smarter features than our competitors.
Produce the Same Mosquito Mist Every Time: Without mixing, the active ingredients in the dilute insecticide tend to settle near the bottom or migrate to the top of the suspension. As a consequence, the concentration of the mix can change from mist cycle to mist cycle. And, in a hot stagnant drum, bacteria growth can compromise the insecticide and clog the filter. Every MistAway mosquito spray system and backyard insect control systems has the ability to agitate the contents to ensure a consistent blend of active ingredients in every mosquito mist.
Protect Against Siphon: If your yard service cuts or nicks your mosquito system's tubing, or disturbs a fitting on a landscape riser, it is possible for the dilute solution to slowly siphon out of the reservoir and leak, unnoticed, into your yard. That's why every MistAway mosquito misting system is designed with a valve that isolates the misting nozzle circuit and prevents such an occurrence.
Detect Leaks: Unless its been engineered to recognize a leak and shut down, when your mosquito spray system starts up, it will pump dilute insecticide through the cut and not through the nozzles. Both our Gen 1.3 drum and Gen III+ tankless systems are capable of recognizing a cut line and suspending operation of the unit until the leak can be repaired.
Respond to Wind Sensor: Every MistAway system has been designed to incorporate an optional wind sensor. The controller is programmed to check the wind speed before each scheduled mosquito mist cycle. It will check the wind every minute for five minutes, and if the wind is above a predetermined speed, the unit will go into hibernation until the next regularly scheduled cycle.
Manage Multiple Zones: A single mosquito misting unit can power a practical maximum of around 60-70 nozzles. Placed every 12 feet, that translates into around 800 feet of protected perimeter. While that is sufficient for most homes, there are properties that demand many more mosquito misting nozzles. Our zone kit can effectively double the number of nozzles that a single unit can drive. Without it, a large installation would require multiple units.
