Mosquito foggers

I am trying to come up with ideas or plans for building a mosquito fogger to be attached to the exhaust of my lawnmower. I seem to remember these being available on the retail market years ago, but an extensive search on the internet produced nothing.

Anyone have ideas or a link to a website?

I am in central Ohio and the mosquito's are the worst I have seen in 50 years.

I don't know what part of the world you live in but putting up bat boxes may be a more effective alternative to spraying. A swarm of bats can literally eat many many pounds of mosquitoes every night. I live in an area where West Nile is becoming a big concern with confirmed cases daily it seems. Eliminating breeding ground for the mosquito (standing water) is one effective way to reduce numbers but I know my stock tanks are necessity to sustain my cattle. I am looking into building a bat box for every tank and getting it in a freindly position to attract/house as many bats as possible. I know that through the past 5 years of the grasshopper plague, spraying did little or nothing. Mother nature did something though and sent swarms of Magpies?? (a dirty black/grey bird) That SIGNIFICANTLY reduced the numbers of grasshoppers this year. We actually have hay to cut and bale for once in a long while, Not to mention swarms of grasshoppers eating every leaf off the trees in the yard and covering your house. They actually ate the screens off my house. Well all that to say, I am a believer in natural enemies as opposed to fogging/spraying. Unless you are targeting a specific nest of pests, you are most probably just shooting money into the breeze IMHO. Now as for spraying the house for scorpions and recluse spiders.....I FINALLY got my hands on some Chloridaine...that is another story.......

Well, ROLLIE, thanks for your concern.

A Great Dane mower is a zero turn mower with the motor behind the operator, the exhaust sticking rearward and downward. In the 600 or so hours I have spent on this machine, never once have I had the slightest hint of exhaust fumes, even with the wind at my back.

I think the fogger can be mounted in such a way as to not fog the operator and I will more than likely wear a respirator while doing this.

You can still send flowers if you want. Make them something my wife can plant in her garden.

REMEMBER !!! Insecticides are designed to kill. Stay out of the fog.

Been many yrs.butway back I worked one summer for nearby village custodian,they had a Gravely 2 wheeler & sulky.Fogger was simply an 1 gallon or so tank on the hood with a copper drip line down to a tin can clamped around the muffler.As the spray dripped inbetween the muffler and can,it vaporized into a fog,and exhaust pressure spewed it out to the side.Worked fairly well....Myself,I have a propane powered hand fogger from a farm supply,uses a throwaway LP cylinder,and has refillable spray tank about the same size.Have found that fogging the evergreens and bushes during the day when the varmints are "laid up" greatly reduces their numbers.

Saw a recipe for making your own fogging solution some years ago. Seems like it was diesel fuel and one other ingredient. Anyone have the formula?

Thanks for the info and the link. I think I will try to make something that clamps on the outlet side of the muffler, rather than remove the muffler from the engine. The diagram will be helpfull.

This will be used on a 25 hp Kohler engine on a Great Dane mower. I have 6 acres to mow, surrounded by woods, and I want to cover it all.

Today's Featured Article - Harvestin Hay: The Early Years (Part 2) - by Pat Browning. The summer of 1950 was the start of a new era in farming for our family. I was thirteen, and Kathy (my oldest sister) was seven. At this age, I believed tractor farming was the only way, hot stuff -- and given a chance I probably would have used the tractor, Dad's first, a 1936 Model "A" John Deere, to go bring in the cows! And I think Dad was ready for some automation too. And so it was that we acquired a good, used J. I. Case, wire tie hay baler. In addition to a person to drive th ... [Read Article]
