ULV foggersULV Professional Foggers

When treating irritating pests like mosquitos, more often than not the conventional methods of sprays and repellents aren’t enough to chase mosquitos off or eliminate them. This is when it would be necessary to use an insect fogger when you have a serious infestation. Using insect foggers is the convenient way which professionals use to treat for mosquitoes or carry out tasks other products wouldn’t be able to do quite as well. Fogs and mists help to fill up a space with a solution, or to allow a product to remain in the air for a longer period of time.

The main objective of using fogging equipment is to get the droplets produced from the fogging product to atomize and remain in the air for a certain period of time. This type of equipment can not only for pest control but also can work as a disinfectant, deodorizer, or to treat plants in gardens and greenhouses.

Before choosing a fogger, determine how large of a space you need to treat. Homes, restaurants, warehouses, attics, etc., may require a bigger machine which can produce a greater volume of fog or mist to control common pests, like the Curtis Dyna-Fog Tornado Flow Flex Fogger. Smaller, more portable foggers, like the compact B&G Portable ULV Aerosol Unit, can be used for treating small areas for insects as well as removing odors and treating plants.

Tips on Using ULV Foggers

Before you start using an insect fogger or other foggers, it’s important to know how ULV foggers function so you can use and maintain them properly.

  • Fog produced from a ULV fogger contains tiny droplets of pest control solution, 50 microns in diameter or less. For comparison, a human hair is about 100 microns in diameter. This results in a true fog, where the droplets are nearly imperceptible. They remain suspended in the air until they evaporate.

  • Unlike thermal foggers which run on heat, ULV foggers are cold foggers. To produce fog into small droplets foggers are equipped with motors that produce a high power, low pressure air stream. The solution is then pushed from a special nozzle in such a way to give the air flow a swirling motion. Because ULV foggers use cool air, they are safe to use both indoors and outdoors.

Depending on the particular fogger you purchase, you may get different results so it is important to note that when using ULV foggers you have a clear purpose and goal in mind when using these products.  For example, the ideal droplet size of the fog for effective pest control should be small, but if it falls under 10 microns, the fogging solution can evaporate out of the air faster rendering it ineffective in attacking insects. On the other hand, if the droplets are big, they won’t be able to remain suspended in the air and will descend to the ground instead.
