Combatting Mosquitoes

Posted by Sprayer Depot on


Depending on where you live, mosquito season may already be in full swing, or close to ramping up. The southern third of the U.S. is already swatting at the pesky annoyances, but colder temps are keeping the mosquitoes at bay further north. A worldwide issue, there are over 3,000 species of mosquitoes around the world, and 176 species are currently recognized in the U.S. (

Mosquitoes pose a health hazard to both people and animals with potentially serious mosquito-born illnesses including West Nile Virus, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, and a newer illness which emerged in 2014 called Chikungunya. Over 1,000 people in the U.S. each year experience serious illness or death as a result of a mosquito bite. (

Sprayer Depot offers specialty products specifically designed for combatting mosquitoes. We've highlighted 3 of our top mosquito misters and foggers below, or you can shop 9 of our top products on the website.

Mosquito Season

Mosquito season varies by region and is closely linked to temperature. Mosquitoes thrive in warmer temps, so warmer climates see mosquito activity earlier in the year, or even have a nearly year-round mosquito season (as we do in Florida). 

Mosquito Season by State

Combatting Mosquitoes

We carry mosquito misters and foggers at Sprayer Depot. Depending on your application, one or the other type may be best for your needs. Foggers use an oil-based insecticide which stays around for 3 weeks, while misters or sprayers use a plant-based insecticide which dissipates in 3-4 hours. Foggers work well for broad coverage, while misters are better for smaller, more direct areas.
