Default Mosquito fogger

Do any of you have one of those Elec. or Propane mosquito foggers? Do they work? I need something to fight these little bastards off with. The Mosquito truck came by my house last week but he was going about 40 mph. The only bugs he killed was on his windshield. They have the Blackflag fogger at lowes for about 60 bucks just wanted some input before I bought. Thanks Casey

If you have a lawn tractor or other engine maybe 10hp or more.........you can build your own.
All u need is a little gas tank like from another tractor, some copper tubing and a brass fitting.


My Dad cobbled the same thing up onto his 12hp Cub Cadet.
If I remember right, he made a plywood cradle to hold the tank on the hood like above. Then ran a small copper tube from a drip valve (I think it was the same as what came on the old gas tank) on the tank bottom down to the exhaust exit on the engine block.
At that point he drilled and tapped the exhaust pipe and installed a tube fitting upstream of the muffler.
Then used the same stuff sold for the electric/propane foggers.
It did indeed make a cloud as pictured above.

Was he also Breathing in the fog he made? I have seen kids on bikes following the mosquito truck and wondered about ill effects it might have later in life...

I bought one of the black flag ones at lowes. It works for a day. There has been so much rain that nothing is going to help. If you have an event in the yard the fogger does work for a short period of time. It does kill the near ones.

I have one also and like the post above It works for a day maybe two but you would have to use it at least every other day and that might get expensive.
