How effective are the systems?
A research study in 2007, funded by the state of Florida, and conducted by entomologists at Florida A&M University, documented the effectiveness of the systems – by comparing mosquito counts in sites that had MistAway systems to counts in control sites that didn’t.
During the first few weeks of the study, it reported that “mean mosquito abundance in treated yards was lower compared with untreated yards, where reduction ranged from 71% to 98%.”
And following a drought during the middle of the study period, “. . . reduction ranged from about 62% to 91%, compared with yards without the systems.”
