Mosquito Mister - automated insect misting system Distributor

First Pest Control is an Authorized Dealer and System Specialist for CoastalMisterâ„¢


As a licensed pest control company already knowledgeable in responsible pest management, each Coastal Distributor is best qualified to design the exact layout of each CoastalMister system and to select the specific product, formulation and dosage to be used.

Pyrethrum, which is derived from the chrysanthemum flower, is the insecticide most often selected for use in the CoastalMister™ system. The professionals installing each CoastalMister system evaluate the site to be protected and the needs of the customer prior to selecting the exact product and formulation to be used. By customizing applications, each insecticide or repellant can be used in its most efficient manner possible while minimizing unnecessary applications.

Note: While many companies lead their customers to believe that their pyrethrum based misting solutions are "natural", those making these claims are either ill informed or carelessly (or purposely) misleading their customers. While pyrethrum itself is a natural plant derivative, currently there is no way to deliver its active ingredient in an insecticide format without including an active synthetic synergist-- hence it is not and should not be considered a completely natural insecticide.


What type of insecticide will be used?

Each Coastal Distributor selects the exact product, formulation and dosage based upon their knowledge and experience as licensed pest management professionals. More than likely, a product containing Pyrethrum will be used, but many non-insecticide repellants are also available. Your Coastal professional will provide you with detailed information on the product selected for your system and its approved usage.

Back to Top Does misting with Pyrethrum kill mosquitoes? YES

When delivered in the dosages prescribed for the CoastalMister, pyrethrum insecticide is lethal to adult mosquitoes.

Back to Top If I select a Pyrethrum misting product, what about my outdoor pets?

The formulation and amount of pyrethrum prescribed for use with the CoastalMister is targeted specifically for mosquitoes and other flying insects. Your Coastal professional will explain the label on the specific insecticide being used and will advise that misting directly on a pet should be avoided. However, use of a CoastalMister in areas where pets reside is very common. The remarks of veterinarian Dr. Mark Purser probably address this question best? ?For many years the animal health profession has comfortably used a wide variety of pyrethrum-based products to control insect infestations. Using pyrethrum in the CoastalMister is a great way to control mosquitoes and fly activity and the diseases they carry and transmit to our pets?.

Back to Top How long will it take to install the system?

There are many variables that determine the length of time needed to install a system. A typical system can be installed in 4-8 hrs; however more complex systems can take several days.

Back to Top How often will the CoastalMister need a refill?

That will depend upon the number of nozzles, the number of misting cycles per day and the length of each misting cycle, along with the number of times that you manually activate a cycle. Your Coastal professional can calculate usage based upon pre-programmed misting cycles and anticipated manual usage.

Back to Top When a system finishes its mist cycle, how long should I wait before I go outside?

Generally speaking, within five minutes you may resume outside activities.

Back to Top When will I notice a reduction in mosquitoes?

The CoastalMister begins working the moment the system is activated.
