The Black Flag company is known for their insecticide products that terminates all kinds of insects and pests, but they have also made an insect fogging device – Black Flag 190095. This is a thermal fogger that heats up the insecticide to produce dense fog cloud that terminates any mosquito that comes in the range of the fog. The fogger needs a propane cylinder to work.
This Black Flag fogger has similar design to other thermal foggers. The body of the tool is made from a durable plastic, design is compact and the fogger is quite light, so it is easy to carry the fogger around. Black Flag fogger is portable and has got a convenient handle, so you can also fog larger areas without any problems.
There are multiple triggers and valves on the fogger. As usual with thermal foggers this tool has got a fogging trigger on the handle. On the body of the fogger there is an auto ignite button. This button allows to trigger a spark which lights up the burner, so you don’t need to use a match or a lighter for lighting up the coil. However, if the auto igniter does not work you can still light it up by placing a match or a lighter to the burner. There is also a fuel control valve on the side of the fogger. By turning this valve you can increase or decrease the fuel supply. To increase the fuel supply turn the valve counterclockwise and to decrease the fuel supply or turn the fogger off completely turn the valve counter clockwise.
The burner of the Black Flag fogger contains the same parts as other propane foggers. Inside you will find a coil, coil basket and a nozzle. The burner heats up using the propane gas and when the insecticide gets pumped into the burner it vaporizes and sprays out as a fog.
Black Flag 190095 fogger is unique from other propane foggers with the built in solution container. The container has got a hole on top of one side of the fogger where you need to fill in the insecticide or other fogging solution. The container can be sealed with a plastic cup. The container has a capacity of 32 oz (0.95 l), which is a bit less than for foggers with attachable container. Mosquito foggers with external container usually will store over 40 oz (1.1 l) of insecticide, so you can fog larger areas without need to refill the insecticide.
The fogging process with a Black Flag insect fogger is similar to other propane mosquito foggers. The fogger is made for outdoor usage only. It works great for outdoor usage and will kill and repel insects for couple of hours to even days so you can enjoy bug free outdoor time. The fogger outputs approx 10 feet (3 m) large cloud of fog, so a smaller backyard can be fogged in just couple of minutes. The fog produced by the Black Flag fogger needs to be dense, in white color and have no oder, but these characteristics can differ by the type of insecticide used in the fogger.
It is recommended to use the Black Flag fogger with a Black Flag insecticide to achieve the best results when fogging.
