I purchased this fogger as a replacement for an old Burgess electric--I have only used it twice so far but it works well. The ignitor does not work, so I use a butane lighter instead which works just fine. Once the coil is red-hot (about three minutes after lighting), the fogger spews out consistent, thick white smoke. It doesn't really use as much propane as I expected, which is nice.
The only problem thus far is the ignitor not working. Almost all people who purchase these have that same problem, so if you don't mind lighting it with a butane lighter instead, it should work just fine.
Pros: Durable, Functionality, Great Quality, lightweight
i am on my 3rd one of these this summer......i replaced my old one with 3 new ones....the ignitors qwit working...one fo them spewed flames which would be catostrophic up north on a camping trip....and now the cap has broke on it...i have recomended them to many people as the GOOD ones do a perfect job of getting rid of bugs.....but SOMETHING TERRIBLE has obviously happened to quality control and i can no longer recomend spending this amount of money on a very poorly MADE product
Live in country, lots and lots of skeeters. Had it for a month, use a lot. Mostly just chases them away for a short period, except for the big ones. The can sprays like yard guard work better at keeping them at bay than the liquid for this product. After a few uses the knob is very hard to turn and the ignitor button is iffy, it won't light 98% of time unless I use a lighter. Knob design needs changing for sure; have to use pliers to turn it. I'm not going to recommend this product only because of the insecticide...it doesn't work well.
Pros: Easy to Clean, Easy to Install
Cons: knob and ignitor design bad, insecticide needs work
Famous scene from The Shining where Jack Nicholson pops through the door and goes ballistic - that's how you'll feel with this "weapon" ,-]
I have a bamboo jungle in my (Florida) back yard surrounding my hot tub. Tiny mosquitoes wait outside my back door and swarm around my ankles as soon as I walk outside. While in the tub, they whiz around my face.
When I saw the fogger on the this web site I couldn't wait - I ran to an HD retail store and bought one....It REALLY fogs. Stay upwind.
Don't connect the propane till ready to use (forget the off switch). Click the spark lighter but don't expect to see some big confirmation of ignition - it takes a few minutes to reach critical mass. When you see it start to drip a bit from the nozzle, then press the trigger and watch it blow. I stepped out on my porch an hour later and the "no-see-ums" and skeeters were gone!!
FREE AT LAST!!
Pros: Easy to Install, Functionality, Sharp, looks wicked -]
I was a little leary from reading the reviews last year, but this is one of the best items I have ever bought. It has worked great for 2 years now, just make sure when you put it up for the winter that it is cleaned out good. Last year I read that people were having problems with this. Just use some common sense as you would any other piece of yard equipment. I wish there were other fogging materials that you could use with it, but so far I have found none.All in all I give this 5 stars! basicly.....buy it....of get bitten up! lol
Bought the first one and all but 1/4 of the liquid leaked out. Took it back and got another one. All but about half the liquid leaked out. I had to use a propane torch to light it because the igniter wouldn't work. Finally got it lit and it worked ok for the first few pumps but no matter how long I let it heat up, it would only shoot a stream of liquid and no fog. The only reason I gave it one star is because It wont let me give it zero stars.
Used once. Had to use match to light as ignition switch didn't work. Next day went to use and switch fell off. It was then impossible to get propane to flow. Phoned the toll free number provided. Was asked to leave message and phone number. It has been 2 weeks and have heard nothing.
After the recent Flooding in Michigan, the Mosquito population has been 3 times the normal amount. We tried several products, but this one was the best. I know most people don't read the instructions so I suggest that you do. 3 days before applying, I got 5 bites in 10 mins. Yesterday I was out from 5p-midnight and I got 1 bite. Thank you Black Flag
Pros: Great Quality

No, I do not recommend this product.
Our second item in 2013 and both of them quit on us within 5-10 times of use. The system does help to control mosquitoes but the "gun" is just not up for the job.
Igniter button broke after 7 push attempts. Heating coil does not heat evenly and frequently goes out. Heat fails to adequately atomize liquid fogging material. Poor quality overall. Original unit lasted 2 years. This unit needs replacement right out of the box.
The igniter failed or simply didn't work. Pretty common problem. The tank and pump were the main issue. The tank cracked around the top causing leaks. Then the pump gave out. I was able to fix both problems for a short time with epoxy before the tank plastic just melted away. I was using a petroleum based insecticide not the very expensive Black Flag. Functioned less than a year.
Fogging for mosquitos is a reasonable concept, and the Black Flag fogging liquid does seem to work on mosquitos. The Black Flag propane applicator is just plain JUNK , however! Do not buy this thing! Mine worked for one week, and I returned it. The "Burgess" propane fogger looks to be better built, and it does have mostly good owner reviews. FORGET about this Black Flag thingy!!! NEVER AGAIN FOR ME !!!
