What is Mosquito Fogging?

Mosquito fogging will free your home or business from mosquitoes.

Mosquito fogging is a method of mosquito control that involves dispersing insecticides into the air through a mosquito fogger.

For better control, the best time to carry out mosquito fogging is in the evening when mosquitoes are the most active.

Furthermore, fogging works exceptionally well for adult mosquitoes as it kills them immediately on contact. Therefore, targeting them at the source is often more effective.

Whether thermal or electrical, mosquito foggers use mosquito control insecticides to work.

Generally, there are two types of mosquito control insecticides:


Residual chemicals

Residual chemicals will leave residues that last for hours to weeks.

They are typically not suitable for outdoor use due to their residual effect and potential impact on beneficial insects in the environment.

Moreover, spraying residual chemicals around your house or premises will act as a barrier that will kill any mosquito that comes in contact.

Non-residual chemicals

Non-residual chemicals do not leave residue; therefore, they are most suitable for outdoor.

Furthermore, non-residual chemicals have a much shorter half-life.

This means their effect rapidly declines after application, resulting in much less impact on other wildlife.

The Advantages of Mosquito Fogging

Proven effective

Studies have shown that mosquito fogging is 90% effective if done correctly.

For more effective mosquito control, you can opt for repeated treatments every few weeks or months.

Protection from mosquito-borne diseases

Mosquitoes are pesky pests that can spread the world’s deadliest diseases.

Diseases that are spread to people by mosquitoes include the Zika virus, West Nile virus, Chikungunya virus, dengue, and malaria.

Moreover, do you know that malaria is one of the most severe public health problems in the world? It is the leading cause of death and disease in many developing countries.

Recently in Kedah, there were two fatal cases of JE (Japanese encephalitis) infection which is a viral brain infection that is spread through mosquito bites.
