Mosquito foggers are one of the most efficient way how to get rid of mosquitoes and many other pests like ants, flies, fleas, beetles, cockroaches, termites and so on and so forth, however, fogging your area with a mosquito fogger to get rid of your unwanted pest guests isn’t the only way you can use a fogger, because a fogger is a quite versatile device. So let’s see some of the other purposes of mosquito foggers that you can utilize to get the most out of your fogger.
To create a mosquito repelling barrier
Most people use mosquito fogger to fog their general area with the insecticide laced fog and kill all the mosquitoes and other insects there, however, there is one more method of mosquito control with a mosquito fogger that you can implement in your mosquito control routine, that will only provide even better results in terms of how well the fogging works. And this method is to not only fog all of your backyard, garden or other area, where you don’t want to see any mosquitoes or other pests, but to also fog around the perimeter of that area. What this will do is, it will create a sort of mosquito control barrier that will prevent new mosquitoes from coming inside said area, and therefore you will be able to see even better mosquito control results.
To get rid of fungi
Besides mosquito control and using a fogger to limit the amount of mosquitoes that live in your area, you can use a fogger to get rid of or control different fungi and mold among them. Insecticide isn’t the only solution that you can pour into a fogger. And if you replace insecticide with a fungicide or some type of anti-mold concentrate, then the mosquito fogger will transform into a fungi fogger, and you will be able to get rid of all the mold and other types of fungi, that are growing in your area, quickly and without having to touch it.
To get rid of bacteria
Similarly to previously mentioned purpose, a mosquito fogger can also be used to combat different bacteria and even viruses. You just have to exchange insecticide for bactericide or other liquid and you get yourself a fogger that emits fog, which is able to fight even the most stubborn bacteria and viruses. This is also one of the main reasons why some foggers can be used not only outdoors, but indoors, because if the fogger can be used inside, then places like hotels, restaurant and even hospitals and public restrooms can be rid of any unwanted bacteria or viruses, disinfecting them with no traces of this process left behind.
To control odor
Of course you also can efficiently use a mosquito fogger to control or get rid of bad odors, because there is a fogging liquid called deodorant that usually is powerful enough to get rid of even the most potent odors, leaving your space, be it outdoors or inside, smelling fresh and clean. This technique of getting rid of odor with a fogger most of the time is implemented if you need to treat a bigger area or the smell is so bad that you need extreme measures to get rid of it, because a fogger not only allows you to treat fairly large area in short period of time, but also allows you to treat the area where the bad odor is with more potent substances without having to actually touch these potent substances. So you can get rid of any smells and odors once and for all.
As a protective measure for plants, animals and stock
A less talked about but none the less common use of foggers is as protective measure. Foggers can be used not only for plant protection against different plat eating pests and animal like livestock or pet protection against biting insects, but also as stock protection. You can use your fogger to make sure that your garden stays intact and doesn’t get eaten or ruined by many different garden bugs, then you can also make life easier for your livestock and other animals, making sure that they don’t have to swat away mosquitoes, flies and other common animal pests every two seconds, and you can also make sure that your stock, especially one that is vulnerable against insects and pests like tobacco and grains for example, is safe from these creatures and will remain healthy for further selling or consumption.
As special effects
Then you can also use foggers as special effect for cinema, theater as well as different exercises like firefighter training. Because fogger are often used with water based solutions you can simply fill up the liquid tank with water and the fogger will turn that water into thick fog, or you can use special fog liquids that are made to produce artificial fog, like the one we can see in parties, concerts and on our TV screens. Both of these methods will create thick, realistic looking fog or smoke cloud without it being harmful to humans or any other creatures that might inhale it, which makes it perfect to use to recreate foggy conditions or smoke-filled rooms, for filming or for real life exercises.
Fogger use in agriculture
And lastly foggers are also commonly used in agriculture. Because foggers, especially Ultra-Low Volume or ULV foggers, are able to emit a very fine mist with particles that are even as small as 5 microns, they are the perfect thing to use to distribute different nutrients for plants. How this process usually works is the nutrient solution is poured into a fogger and distributed over the plants that it is meant for. And because the particles of the spray that comes out of a fogger are so small, they won’t drench the roots, but rather humidify and deliver the nutrients to the roots of the plants, so they can absorb them efficiently and get all the vitamins they need to grow bigger and produce bigger yields.
