DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Always read label directions and precautions prior to use. Shake well before use and periodically during use.
Fogger Treatment: To kill and repel mosquitoes and other flying insects, hold container upright and aim nozzle away from face and other people. Press the button firmly and spray in a slow sweeping motion toward the area to be treated. For best results, spray when the air is calm and contact as many insects as possible. If a breeze is blowing, spray in the same direction as the wind. Repeat as necessary.
Repellent Zone Treatment: To create a mosquito repellent zone, spray surfaces and vegetation in areas where mosquitoes congregate from about 3 feet away including: plant leaves and dense foliage, under and around decks, porches, patios, outdoor screens, tents and other surfaces pests may contact. Give special attention to any dark, humid areas, as mosquitoes prefer to rest in these areas. Allow a few minutes for the product to take effect. Reapplication will be needed after rainfall. Repeat as necessary.
Q. Can I use the Maggie’s Farm Mosquito Fogger to protect my entire back yard?
A. The Mosquito Fogger is best used to protect small gathering areas such as a deck or patio, versus an entire back yard. We recommend using our Maggie’s Farm Mosquito & Tick Killer hose-end sprayer for your backyard bug control if you have a larger backyard applications, as it will treat up to 5000 square feet.
Q. Do I just spray the Mosquito Fogger around the area I am trying to protect from mosquitoes? How long does it take for the product to start working?
A. Yes, the Mosquito Fogger should be sprayed around the outer edges of the area that need mosquito protection. If there are plants close by, you should also spray them from about 3 feet away (plant leaves, in dense foliage). If protecting around a deck, spray under the deck too and in any dark/humid areas where mosquitoes tend to rest. Give the Mosquito Fogger a few minutes to take effect.
Q. Are mosquito foggers safe?
A. It depends on what types of active ingredients are used in the fogger formulation. Most professional foggers will have some type of contact insecticide and will recommend you wear a respirator during application.
There are mosquito foggers formulated with natural plant oils that act as both a mosquito killer and repellent, so you get the benefits of both efficacy and a family-friendly product.
We definitely love the peppermint scent and it works great.
Here’s what I love: *Not harmful to humans or pets! *Does a pretty effective job in keeping mosquitoes off my porch while we read/eat/etc.! *Pleasant smell (citronella+) *Customer service is extremely helpful. (I had 2 “bad” aerosol cans that lost their spray power right away. They replaced them and told me they had had to switch can vendors.)
Like that it is real citronella
Excellent. Highly recommend.
I love using this. I know I'm not getting poisoned and it works great Ann's smells great!
