Frequently Asked Questions
This is a new breakthrough approach to pest control that takes back your yard from the biting critters! The Sprinkler Magician system kills and repels biting insects in residential and commercial properties, creating an environment around your property that is extremely unfriendly towards targeted pests. The system handles mosquitoes and other pests where they hide, in plants and lawns – using our potent natural concentrate that has 6 active ingredients.
Our system automatically controls your sprinkler (also called irrigation) system, allowing it to distribute the natural pesticide concentrate to all lawns and gardens. The system cycles through, completely automatically, zone after zone, until all areas have been treated. A high pressure pump accurately injects the concentrate into the stream of water so that it spreads evenly on all plants and lawns.
Mosquito Magician is laboratory tested to kill at least 98% of Mosquitoes and provide up to 2 weeks repellency. However, we have years of anecdotal evidence from customers saying it also does a great job on Fleas, Ticks, Fire Ants and many other nuisance insects.
Yes, the system is fully automatic and can be set to run preset schedules each week. All you have to do is fill the reservoir with Mosquito Magician concentrate and set the schedule switch for how often you want to treat – that’s it! The machine will come on and run each sprinkler zone while injecting the concentrate into the water stream. It stays on just long enough to flush the solution through the pipes so none gets wasted. It then repeats this for all zones in the property, and within 3-5 minutes the whole property is treated and the bugs are gone!
Yes, as long as it’s used as directed of course. Because we use all natural ingredients, it’s safe for adults, children, pets, Koi fish and the environment including waterways. All ingredients are classed as “Minimum Risk” and are EPA exempt due to this. The active ingredients in the Mosquito Magician concentrate are all oils from plants known as essential oils, and all are well known for their insects killing and repelling properties.
Recently we have conducted lab testing and the results are in! Mosquito Magician is extremely effective at not only repelling but also killing mosquitoes. This means you can have it all. Not only do you have a product that is completely natural and safe for you to use but also extremely effective! Our goal is to help people enjoy their yard and keep annoying and dangerous mosquitoes away!
There is nothing on the market comparable to the Sprinkler Magician system – we know because we have an issued US Patent protecting the technology we developed (Patent # 8,434,697). One of the competitor's systems is completely manually operated – you have to go outside and turn on your sprinkler system and then activate their unit. You have to do all this again for every zone in your property! Another competitor just injects their pesticide when the sprinkler system is running. This results in 30+ minutes of water washing all their pesticide off the plants and onto the ground where it doesn’t work and gets wasted. Also, this system can only ever run when the sprinkler system runs, as opposed to ours which can run anytime you want to send the bugs packing.
This is the only automated system that works with your existing sprinkler system to handle mosquitoes and other nuisance insects. Unlike bug zappers and propane type machines, our system doesn’t lure mosquitoes into your yard in the hope of killing them; we turn your whole yard into an environment that is extremely unfriendly towards targeted pests. There are Mosquito Misting Systems available that also do this, but they involve running pipes all around your yard and as a result are very expensive – often $3000 – $8000. They typically use pyrethrin neurotoxin chemicals. Also, misting systems cannot treat grassy areas and therefore cannot control fleas and ticks, which our system can and does.
Our patented technology ensures that the Mosquito Magician concentrate is accurately applied to all plants with MINIMAL water so it dries on the plants and adheres. This method provides maximum effectiveness; it will last for up to 2 weeks with just one application. How often you choose to run the system depends on your local conditions, the amount of mosquitoes in your area, as well as the amount of rainfall. You can change the setting any time you want to using the scheduling switch.
We have a range of products from $25 bottles of Mosquito Magician concentrate to reusable Mosquito Killer Portable Handheld Sprayers to fully automated systems that treat whole properties. You can also use the Mosquito Magician concentrate in any pump-up sprayer or backpack sprayer you might have at home. Please contact us for pricing on our entire product range.

There are three options:

- You can purchase the Mosquito Magician concentrate and use your own pump-up or backpack sprayer. Visit our Products page to choose the one that is right for you.
The machine is ruggedly built in the USA and is designed to operate with no regular maintenance as long as our concentrates are used. It’s always good to check that your sprinkler system is working correctly as ours runs through it and depends on it to deliver the concentrate. In areas where it freezes the system should be winterized at the same time as the sprinkler system. The Homeowners manual shows how to do this.
The machine is proudly built in the USA, in the Tampa Bay area of Florida.
Yes, the machine is fully warrantied for 1 year as long as our concentrates are used exclusively. Using concentrates other than Mosquito Magician products voids all warranties.
Yes, we have an optional wireless remote that allows you to initiate a pest treatment cycle at the touch of a button, from anywhere on your property. The wireless remote upgrade costs $199.00.
Yes, we have an upgraded model that can also apply liquid fertilizer to gardens and lawns. This gives complete coverage using 100% natural fertilizer through your sprinkler system. It has 2 reservoirs, one for Mosquito Magician concentrate, and the other for our all-natural fertilizer. Visit the Products Page to see the dual reservoir Mosquito Killer Machine with Fertilizer.
No, while it is completely nontoxic, it’s not designed to be sprayed on people or pets.
Most people say it smells just like salad dressing. It is pleasant and lingers for 5 – 10 minutes after spraying. Once dried on plants the smell is unnoticeable to humans.
