    Q
    Does each pesticides have differing optimal droplet size in the VectorFog BY100 Mini Thermal Fogger??
    Is there a droplet size that ever is to small to effectively distribute the pesticide ?? As the droplet size is decreased would it be necessary to increase the exposure time such that effectively the same volume of spray would be necessary regardless of selected droplet size ??
    A
    Foggers are intended to create very small droplets so that pesticides can cover a large area evenly and drift around the treatment area. Most fogging concentrates are designed to act as a contact kill for a quick clean-out of pest infestations. We would need to know more about the pest you are treating and the specific situation to offer more detailed advice...Please call us at 866-581-7378.

    Q
    Could I get the propane adapter information for the VectorFog BY100 Mini Thermal Fogger?
    Can you tell me the name or part number of the propane adapter that fits the by100 fogger sprayer?
    A

    Per the Manufacturer there is no adapter for using propane with the VectorFog BY100 Mini Thermal Fogger. You just need to get the correct propane or butane cartridge that would fit the opening in the unit as is. For butane they recommend the Gas One Butane Gas Catridge or the Sterno 50130-8 Butane Fuel Cartridges that you can purchase at Wal-Mart. So a propane cartridge with a similar top would also work. They do not have a recommendation for the propane cartridge. Coleman and GoGas both make one that appear to have the correct fitting on them though.

    Q
    How best to use premixed fogging solutions in the VectorFog BY100
    The instructions for the BY100 say to only put diesel or water solution in the main tank. The insecticide chemical goes in the top, a separate tank which gets mixed with the fuel it seems. Because there's a separate tank for the fuel and the chemical, can I use a premixed formula like ULD BP-100 with this fogger? The instructions specifically say using a premixed formula can cause clogging. If I can't use a premixed formula, what insecticide can I mix with diesel/water for this fogger?
    A
    Yes, you can use ULD BP-100 in the Vector Fog BY100 Mini Thermal Fogger. This product is not pre-mixed with anything. What they mean by pre-mixed would be ULD BP-100 mixed with oil before putting it in its proper tank in the fogger. You will put the oil/diesel in its proper place and put the insecticide in its place.

    Q
    Insecticide question
    Could you use crossfire in the foggier for bed bug infections? Or eco raider ?
    A

    Neither Crossfire nor Eco-Raider is labeled for use in a fogger of any kind. If you are treating for bedbugs we do not recommend using a fogger because the fog cannot penetrate into the cracks and crevices where bedbugs like to hide. Please take a moment to read over our bedbug guide for more information on how to perform a successful bedbug application: https://www.domyown.com/how-to-get-rid-of-bed-bugs-a-449.html

    Q
    Can I use Black Flag oil based insecticide in my BY100 by putting it in the diesel tank?
    I already own some that I used in a different fogger.
    A

    We cannot comment for sure if you can use a Black Flag product as we do not carry that brand of products.  We can only say that if the product states it can be used in a thermal fogger such as the VectorFog BY100 Mini Thermal Fogger you can do so as directed on it's label.
