Southerners, and especially Texans, love to hunt. That is why it is no surprise that the deer breeding industry has really taken off, especially in the Houston area. This has lead to a thriving new industry and an enjoyable pastime for countless sportsmen. However, there have also been challenges, particularly with overcoming the host of insects species that plague deer populations.

Insects That Prey on Deer

  • Flies
  • Mosquitoes
  • Ticks
  • Ants

These insects are much more than simply pests to the animals; they can also transmit serious, even fatal diseases to the deer. Two examples of these extreme, deadly diseases spread by insect contact include EHD (Epizootic Hemorrhagic Disease) and Blue Tongue. Breeding deer requires a significant financial, material, and time investment and these valuable animals must be protected from insect-spread diseases or the entire business is in jeopardy. Fortunately, Houston Misting has the solution: deer misting

What Is Deer Misting?

Deer misting involves setting up a network of tubes with nozzles around the deer enclosure. A pump with an attached reservoir then pumps insecticide through the nozzles at predetermined intervals, releasing a mist that is completely safe for the deer, but toxic to their insect pests. However there are some challenges associated with deer misting and it is crucial that a qualified company install the deer misting systems.

Challenges Associated with Deer Misting

  • Very large enclosure size
  • Range of insects
  • Need for thorough penetration throughout deer pen
  • Requires high quality equipment and pump
