What does a system cost?
The "price" of the system depends entirely on the size of the area to be protected. This is the initial investment to have the system installed. The "cost" of the system is the long-term expense of operating the system. We explain both of these elements during each personal design consultation.
What is the price range?
Prices range from $1,750 to $10,000 or more (for our largest installations).
Are chemicals harmful to children and pets?
A Bug Defence design consultant will discuss the chemical choices and their properties with you.
How effective is your mosquito misting system to control my mosquito problem?
It is the most effective product on the market today. That's why we can offer a 90-day satisfaction guarantee.
Why do some companies require a long-term contract?
This usually happens because they want to lock in your business, regardless of the quality of their service or the effectiveness of their system. Bug Defence does not believe in having our customers "locked in" by a signed contract; we believe that we must earn your continued business year-in and year-out.
Who manufactures your system?
Bug Defence™ manufactured our system in our Houston 14,400 square foot factory.
Do we repair or maintain other systems?
Absolutely! We have a complete repair facility that stays busy repairing and upgrading other company's systems. We also continue to take over the maintenance and service of other systems that have fallen into disuse or have been abandoned by the installer.
What kind of facilities benefit from using a control system?
Backyard pools and patios, farms and ranches, veterinary clinics, zoos and commercial trash areas all use and enjoy Bug Defence systems. Controlling flies, mosquitos, gnats, roaches, etc., creates a healthier environment for you and your cherished family.
What size of system will I need for my application?
Bug Defence™ Mosquito Control offers several different system sizes. An average home will require 35-40 nozzles to provide adequate coverage. Our smallest system is the most popular and will handle up to 55 nozzles. This allows room for additional nozzles on the average spray system if future expansion is required. Larger systems may be utilized where needed.
How many spray nozzles will I need?
We normally suggest one misting nozzle approximately every 10-12 feet along the back and front eaves of your home and along fences, plus a few for the flower beds and other special areas. Each nozzle will control approximately 1,000 to 1,500 cubic feet of airspace, depending on the air currents of your location.
What is the warranty?
Bug Defence™ offers a lifetime parts and labor warranty on its systems for full-service customers. (Warranty requires you only use solutions sold through Bug Defence). Bug Defence™ is the leading manufacturer of whole property mosquito control systems and solutions. We can provide an exclusive "manufacturer direct" service and warranty of your installation.
What insecticides/repellents do you use and what is it made from?
We carry and sell the most complete line-up of Permethrin, Pyrethrum and green alternatives, from our registered product Vector-Ban Plus to our all natural, self-branded Bug Defence™ Repellent.
Permethrin is a synthetic chemical similar to the natural insecticide pyrethrum which comes from the chrysanthemum plant, but it remains effective for longer periods of time.
Pyrethrum is derived from the chrysanthemum plant and has been used in many forms for effective, low toxicity insect control for many years.
Bug Defence™ repellent is made from all-natural, non-toxic ingredients. It contains no alcohol, is non-flammable, and will not stain or damage furniture or plastic products.
How long does the chemical last before I need a refill?
Refill frequency will vary with each installation depending on the number of nozzles and spraying periods per day.
What kind of maintenance does the system require?
Bug Defence™ systems require very limited maintenance. In areas of the country that experience hard freezing conditions, we recommend you winterize your system. This simple procedure should take less than 15 minutes once a year. Call for details.
