Sometimes, I do wonder whether some animals in this world are redundant. Case in point, does the pro of mosquito larvae being food for select animals outweigh the potential pest factor of a fully grown adult mosquito? Getting bitten by mosquitoes whenever you go out on a camping trip is no fun at all, you know. Thank goodness the advancements of technology in the modern world has led us to this particular road – a $299.95 Remote Controlled Backyard Mosquito Mister.
Should the Remote Controlled Backyard Mosquito Mister live up to its reputation (or at least, product description), then this backyard mister is capable of repelling mosquitoes within a 2,000 square feet area, and not only that, it can also be operated remotely from a safe distance away. It will rely on EPA-registered permethrin to get the job done, which so happens to be a synthetic form of naturally occurring pyrethrin that is derived from chrysanthemum, where it is good enough to kill up to 90% of mosquitoes, flies, gnats, no-see-ums, ticks, and other biting insects while repelling them for up to half a dozen hours with a mere four-minute misting. Don’t worry about toxicity levels, as permethrin biodegrades so fast, it is safe and gentle on the environment.
