Auto Mist system, available
in 30 gallon or 55 gallon sizes, is an automatic insect control
system that has proven to be a vital option for horse or livestock facilities,
it is also very popular for outdoor recreational areas such as pools, patios,
and backyards. Kennel owners will also want to consider this effective method of
AutoMist with its very high control rate is effective and completely
automatic. AutoMist gives a synchronized spray that evenly distributes coverage
of insecticide over an entire area during the duration of each timed spray.
AutoMist systems can be installed conveniently at the time of new
construction, when additions are added, or in already existing areas to
effectively reduce insect populations. The AutoMist system can easily be
expanded to accommodate growth.
Available with the standard analog timer,
the times that you choose and set for spray cycles will offer automatic
control of insects with little, if any, additional programming. The
widely varied combination of cycle times and cycle durations available
allows for easy hands off control of nuisance pests. These analog
timers are usually used in horse and livestock housing although their
great versatility makes them suitable for all applications.
backyard installations, as well as any other application, can take
advantage of the digital timer with wireless remote control. These timers
allow for increased flexibility of spray cycles beyond those that the user
programs in the timer.
With the remote control you have the
ability to add in an extra spray, skip a spray or stop a spray cycle that
has already begun all without disturbing the regular programming.
These features are particularly useful in situations where insect
populations are changing due to weather conditions such as increased
rainfall, hot, humid conditions etc.
For extra protection from water impurities we are also offering an
in line filter with removable filter element to help keep nozzles clean.
Element should be cleaned every few months to help keep lines and nozzles clean
and operating properly.

spray directly on plantings.

Why use an automatic fly spray system?
Insects become active as soon as the weather warms in the spring. This means
that as the temperature increases, they start reproducing. One typical female
adult fly lays from 250 to 1250 eggs in a two to five week period. From the time
the egg is laid to the formation of an adult is 9 to 43 days, depending on
temperature and moisture conditions. Multiply this by the number of flies in a
typical barn on a hot day and the resulting population is the cause of most fly
The Automist system answers the problem of ineffective, labor intensive
insect control. Being an automatic system, the Automist sprays any facility on a
regular preset schedule. The Automist system treats the facility with
insecticide spray in about 1 minute or less, several times a day thereby not allowing
flies to escape, as they do with other methods. Using this technology, plus
effective, safe, water based insecticide, Automist controls insects by killing a
larger number each time it sprays, thus breaking the insects breeding cycle.
Both of these systems carry a full one year warranty from the date of
purchase. This warranty covers the repair or replacement of any part found
defective during normal use within the 12 month period. This warranty does
not cover shipping and handling charges.
As with any method of insect control, when used in an animal setting, the
Automist system should be used in conjunction with good manure management,
moisture control and general farm sanitation.
