Performance

Designed as a thermal fogger, the Black Flag 190107 uses heat to exterminate different types of insects by vaporizing the insecticide solution and spraying it out in the form of a fog. Considered a heavy-duty electric insect fogger, it has the ability to kill mosquitoes on contact and repel them for a long period of time. It reduces your risk of getting mosquito-borne diseases such as the West Nile or Zika virus.

The Black Flag 190107 uses an insect exterminating system much like those used by professionals so you can be sure it is effective. It kills not only mosquitoes but also other insects such as flies, gnats, and other flying insects. It forms a thick cloud of fog that penetrates deep in the trees, grass, the foliage of plants, and other insect hiding areas in just a short time of fewer than 10 minutes.

This electric insect fogger is safe for humans and pets and does not leave a trace of chemical odors so you can go back to the treated area in just a few minutes. Using an electric insect fogger rather than getting professional help is less expensive, but the Black Flag 190107 uses only a small amount of insecticide, so you save more money.

Build

The Black Flag 190107 comes with an electric cord instead of a mounting hole for a propane cylinder, which makes it so easy to use. Just plug it into a regular electric socket, and you can start the fogging process. Like all thermal foggers, you need to wait a few minutes for the fogger to heat up to produce large and thick fog to get the most efficient results.

The body of this fogger is made of plastic, which is the reason it is lightweight at just 4.8 pounds. You can freely carry it around and bring it to areas where the mosquitoes hide and lay their eggs. It comes with a trigger lock button that prevents accidental pressing of the trigger while in use.

Operation

Operating the Black Flag 190107 is the same as using propane foggers. Pressing the trigger slowly and steadily every few seconds releases a fog from its large, 40-ounce insecticide container. It has an auto ignite button to create a spark when heating the barrel assembly.

The fogger pump then forces the insecticide through its heat-conducting coil, which instantly vaporizes the insecticide to produce a thick, white cone of fog that is about ten feet in diameter.
