The Airo-ULV Flex Cold Fogger is a mobile ultra-low volume applicator (ULV) powered through either a 240 or a 120 volt AC electric. It has a powerful electric high speed AC induction motor that can speed up to 38,000 revolutions per minute (RPM). It also has a fan which creates spray droplets in the 15 to 30 micrometer size range by using a vortical nozzle or twin heads. The refined aerosol droplets will remain in flight for an extended period of time and are later on dispersed throughout a large area by the powerful air outlet by the nozzle. All components that are required to be in contact with liquid are designed and produced from chemical resistant materials such as Teflon TM, Viton TM, top quality stainless steel brass and other precisely engineered materials. It can spray both water and oil based solutions. The tank is easy to remove from the motor fan body, just loosen up the clamp for easy cleaning. It features a 20 inch/50 cm highly flexible hose and comes with a heavy duty carrying strap. Holds up to 1.25 gallons of solution.
Is this Airofog ULV 120 Flex Cold Fogger effective for outdoor mosquito control?
We have a very small (0.1 acre) property. While I think a fogger would be the best way to apply our mosquito-control products, I'd prefer not to invest $400 in a gas-powered backpack unit. Would this unit be effective to fog/mist our heavily vegetated property? Is the fog/mist forceful to blow leaves and get undersides?
Fogging is only effective in killing those mosquitoes that are out in the open at the time you are doing so. There is no residual so you would have to re-treat often. The Airofog ULV 120 Flex Cold Fogger is really more for indoor applications such as in air ducts, drains, smaller corners, and false ceilings. You can use it outside but would have to fill often and be closer to areas you need to treat.
