Mower-Mounted Mosquito Fogger
The fogger unit mounts in place of the muffler on 2 to 5 hp mowers with 1/2-in. bore side-mount mufflers. It connects to a 1-qt. plastic supply tank that mounts on the handle of the mower. The tank is filled with Resmethrin, a chemical available at most hardware stores in the U.S. or Canada.
"It takes about two minutes for the engine to warm up enough to start fogging. You should always fog downwind and wear a mask to avoid inhalation," Gnutel says. "Fogging a typical size yard uses only about 25 cents worth of chemical."
Sells for about $45 (U.S.) plus S&H. Gnutel's looking for North American distributors.
