Kyle from Brooklyn, Ny writes,

What type of propane tank is needed for use with the Fog RX Propane Insect Fogger? Insecticide?

I have an approx 1000sf garden that is overrun with aggressive mosquitoes! Need something like this (I think) to make my garden usable again. RE propane: what exactly do I need? A small tank? RE repellant: do you carry the mosquito repellant recommended on the box? RE usage: Not sure how easy it is for me to get propane where I live so curious if you have this on sale as well... please advise whenever you have a moment.


We do not carry the small propane tanks that are required for use with the Fog RX Propane Insect Fogger but most hardware stores and big box stores do carry them and they are pretty readily available. You can check with your local stores before purchase to make sure they carry the 14.1 oz tall style propane cylinders that are required (3 inches in diameter x 10.5 inches long). Do NOT use the shorter 16 oz lantern style cylinders as they are known to cause flare ups or uncontrolled burn. You can learn more about using the fogger by reading the product label which we linked in this answer for your convenience but which is always available on the Fog RX Propane Insect Fogger product page on our site under the picture of the product. We do carry the Bonide Bug Beater Lawn and Garden Fogging solution that is recommend on the fogger box.
