Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How does the system work?
A: We will custom design a system for your home. Precision misting nozzles, connected by nylon tubing are discreetly installed to the outer eves of the home, along fence lines and throughout landscaped areas. The system automatically mists an EPA registered pyrethrum solution around the perimeter of your home at predetermined intervals, which kills mosquitoes and other biting insects on contact, breaking their breeding cycle.

Q: How automatic is the system and when will it spray?
A: The system is totally automatic. Our technicians will set the time initially to activate three times a day for thirty-second intervals, at Sunrise, Sunset and 9:00 p.m., to control your insect problem. As seasons change, you may increase the number of spray settings or durations as needed for effective insect control.

Q: How safe is pyrethrum?
A: Pyrethrum is a biodegradable, water based concentrate derived from chrysanthemum flowers. The solution is EPA registered and has been approved for food processing plants, restaurants and sensitive applications such as the post harvest treatment of fruits and vegetables. Pyrethrum decomposes harmlessly leaving no oily residue like other chemicals or synthetic compounds that can be dangerous to humans and pets.

Q: Will pyrethrum harm my pets?
A: Pyrethrum is considered nontoxic to mammals when used in accordance with the label instructions. Pyrethrum has been used in agricultural and equine applications for a quarter of a century with no known harmful effects. Commonly Pyrethrum is a component on many flea dip applications. A word of caution, pyrethrum may be toxic to some species of fish. As with anything common sense plays a factor. Do not place food or water bowls directly under a spray nozzle.

Q: Which insects does pyrethrum control?
A: Almost all insects are killed and effectively repelled including: mosquitoes, spiders, ticks, fleas, flies, no-see-ums, wasps, gnats, ants, roaches, and scorpions.

Q: How much does the system cost?
A: The installed cost of a BuzzOFF system is based on the specific design of your home and the areas you wish to protect. Each home is customized to meet your needs so cost varies upon the design. Your BuzzOFF representative will work with you to design an effective yet cost effective system for your home.

Q: What kind of warranty is offered?
A: Every BuzzOFF Mosquito system contains a full one-year warranty on equipment and labor. We also provide a 30-day no questions asked satisfaction guarantee. If you are dissatisfied with your system or its operation, we will remove the system at our expense.

Q: How often does the system need to be refilled?
A: The average time between refills is approximately 4-6 weeks. The time will vary depending upon the number of nozzles, the severity of your insect problem, the number of spray cycles per day and the duration of each spray cycle.

Q: What does the Service Maintenance Plan cover?
A: It covers all repairs to the system, including, replacing blocked nozzles, repairing damaged tubing, pumps and motors. As long as you continue the Annual Maintenance Plan, the only other expense you will have is the solution refills.

Q: How do I use the remote control?
A: The MISTIGATOR System’s remote control comes with 2 options. If you feel you need a little extra protection, you can manually add a spray cycle by just pushing the “mist” button. If you are going to have an outdoor event and need to stop the system while your guests are there, you can push the “pause” button and the system will stay off while your event is going on and reset to the preset times at midnight.

Q: Is the system adaptable for growth?
A: Yes. The BuzzOFF Mosquito system can easily be modified to incorporate any change in your home or yard.

Q: Do you do background checks on your service technicians? Also, how will I know they are BuzzOFF Service Technicians?
A: For our customer’s peace of mind, all of our service technicians have to pass a background check before they can work for us. You will recognize them because they will be wearing a shirt and hat with the BuzzOFF logo. They will also be driving a clearly marked BuzzOFF truck.
