We all know what “automatic” means: the ability to operate independently. An automatic car wash or sprinkler irrigation system comes to mind as examples.
“Pest control” is defined as the act of pest control. Typically, pest control is a service provided by pesticide professionals who come to your home and spray chemicals.
So what could an automatic pest control system be? It would be a system that works independently to gain pest control. Huh? Is there such a thing?
Yup! In fact, there are several automatic pest control systems. The history and some input on how effective they are are outlined below:
The first automatic pest control systems were the propane tanks of mosquitoes that emitted carbon dioxide. These machines were to be placed on property away from where people were. Presumably, carbon dioxide would attract mosquitoes away from people. But since there was no supply of a false carbon dioxide blood meal, the mosquitoes would still find people and bite.Norfolkpestcontrol.ca
The next generation of automatics are mosquito spray systems. These are made up of a series of tubes and small mister heads that are mounted in and around the properties to control mosquitoes. There is a large 55 gallon barrel that contains the chemicals. Periodically, the pipes are pressurized with the chemical that is released into the air to kill mosquitoes. These systems use synthetic pesticides that are harmful to bees (and small pets). If the wind blows or if the delicate nebulizer heads are damaged, the chemicals go to other parts of the environment. It is also prohibitive to cover an entire property.
So far we are only talking about mosquitoes but there are many other parasites. And the ants? Don’t want to check for cockroaches, termites, turf pests, and mosquitoes?
The automatic pest control system has now grown. We’re talking about a revolutionary process that uses an irrigation system to provide food-grade, non-chemical, cedar for pest control. Cedar – just like cedar crates and cedar cabinets where you never see an insect. This is because cedar controls pests!
With this system, mosquitoes are targeted. But so are fleas, ants, beetles, ticks, walruses, garden pests such as aphids, whiteflies and mole crickets and many others. This set and forget automatic pest control system only requires a tank refill perhaps once every two months.
Control mosquitoes and a million other pests? This is an automatic pest control system!
