Recommended spraying durations last 45-60 seconds and can occur as often as needed to keep your area pest free
The Heart of the System – The Shoo-fly Master Control Unit

Check Valves: Maintain proper pressure on the lines to ensure that the system sprays when the pump turns on and prevents nozzles from dripping when the pump is off
Nozzles: Constructed of high-quality brass and stainless steel, these nozzles deliver optimal spray particle size for maximum effectiveness.
Tubing: 1/4-inch nylon tubing with a burst strength of 1,000 psi, this material is compatible with the insecticides
To keep nozzles from becoming clogged by particulates in the water, we recommend using a 1-micron water filter on your water hose when you fill your drum. Ask our staff about it or go here.
