Foggers turn insecticides and pesticides into droplets that remain in the air for a certain period of time, filling a room or property with a choosen treatment. This method of treatment can control large pest infestations in areas like schools, warehouses, and barns.
Before you start using an insect fogger or other foggers, it’s important to know how fogs work so you can use the equipment correctly and in the right context.
First, it is important to know that there is a difference between a fog and a mist.
Different equipment will produce different results, so it is key when using insect foggers, electric foggers, or ULV foggers to understand your purpose and goals when using these products. For example, the target droplet size for pest control fogging should be small, but under 10 microns, the product can evaporate out of the air faster than it can affect the target insects. Conversely, if the droplets are too large, they won’t be able to remain suspended in the air and will coat the ground instead.
The goal of using fogging equipment is to get the droplets of your product to atomize and remain in the air for a certain period of time. This type of equipment can be used in several applications outside of pest control, including odor control, disinfectants, humidity control, sanitizing, etc. and you can purchase many types of units and products to suit your needs.
Before choosing your fogger, determine how large of a space you need to treat. Homes, bakeries, restaurants, warehouses, attics, etc., may require a larger machine that is able to produce a large volume of fog or mist to control food and clothes pests and other common pests, like the Commander Tri-Jet Fogger. Smaller, more portable foggers, like the compact Fogmaster Jr, can be used for treating plants with insecticides or soaps, treating pet stains, and treating odors in small spaces.
