- Types of Fogging Insecticides
The Fogging Insecticide is divided into two types:
- Non- Residual Chemicals
The non-residual chemical has a shorter life. You can use it in the garden because it decreases after application. Also, when sprayed in the air, it is active for a few hours before it dispels.
It is used in an area with people, pets, and plants
- Residual Chemicals
Residual chemical leaves long-lasting chemical remains. It lasts for 30 days but in case there is heavy rain you need to reapply. This makes it not suitable for inhabited areas. So it is not recommended around pets, children, or edible plants. You can use them in crevices or cracks
What type of Fogging Insecticides should I use in the Fogger?
As said earlier, this depends on the specific area where you want to eliminate the mosquito. If it is an area with people, pets, and plants that use non-residual while uninhabited you can use residual.
