    Why take Mosquito Fogging service?
    Mosquito Fogging works effectively when you need to quickly get rid of mosquitoes over a large and open area for a brief amount of time. The fumes that come out of the fumigation device either kill or remove every mosquito it comes in contact with. To get longer relief from mosquitoes, a combination of fumigation and pesticide spray is recommended. Fumigation only gets rid of adult mosquitoes in the open air while pesticide spray kills and inhibits the growth of larvae in nearby areas. Mosquitos are most active during early mornings and late afternoon which is why it’s most effective to perform fogging at these times. Mosquitoes usually do not travel beyond 1-2 kms of their reproduction site. For this reason, fogging is a good way to get rid of mosquitoes around your house or property. Fumigation, however, is not always the most suitable type of pest control method. You should consult with your pest control professional and determine the best, least invasive method of getting rid of the pest.
