A mosquito fogger is a device that creates a fine mist out of an insecticide solution. You can spray this mist or fog around your backyard, repelling and killing most of the mosquitoes in the treated area.
The most popular insect foggers are thermal and ultra-low volume (ULV). Of course, each has various advantages and disadvantages, but they are all made to combat pests. They make a fog with a droplet size from 2–60 micrometers (8 to 20 micrometers is recommended) that will stick to even the smallest mosquitoes, so they have no chance of escape.
Thermal foggers are further divided into electrical and propane models. Let’s take a quick look at just one fogger to serve as an example: a propane thermal fogger. This device will have a propane cylinder at the front and a liquid solution tank at the bottom. The thermal heating element in the front will create the smoke/fog mixture needed to exterminate mosquitoes.
It’s very easy to use; you simply have to move around, directing the fog toward the areas where you think the mosquitoes are hiding.

One way to get rid of these nasty creatures is by using insecticides. You can use various insecticides around your backyard to kill these insects. But because sprays are typically relatively large droplets, they settle quickly and can’t spread through thick leaves and undergrowth. But foggers produce a fine mist that hangs in the air longer and penetrates deeper into the foliage.
