 The safety measures in the product are taken carefully and the lock given will not disperse the insecticide protecting the applicant. The burgess 1443 is a thermal fogger, therefore, the fluid is fogged and is first vaporized by an increase in temperature by a propane cylinder and the vapour is then condensed upon introduction to the cooler atmospheric air. 

The resulting of the process is the generation of extremely small particles up to 7 times finer than mist which is called a dry fog. Due to these properties, it is able to penetrate and kills all biting insects and mosquitoes.
