Default Mosquito fogger attachment for lawnmower

I am trying to find one of those kits they used to sell that had a bottle, drip valve, and muffler shroud to turn your lawn mower into a mosquito fogger.

I own an electric fogger but it is a pain in the butt to use dragging the extension cord all around the yard.

Tried Googling and came up with nada.

I could put together a setup myself but I would rather buy something prefabbed for the ease of assembly.

I haven't run into anything like that for a lawnmower.
I seem to remember an attachment like that for a tractor.
Of course I can't remember any specifics.

I am not 100% sure ,, but I think they don't sell them anymore .. I have one new in the box that was sold by Bolens in the 60s and 70s ... Even has a can of liquid is in the box .. I am sure what ever is in the can .. is not sold to the public anymore ..

I will have to look .. but I am pretty sure its called a Blitz Fogger

My guess is they killed more users than mosquitos.
...or, at least, caused some serious breathing problems.

Looks a little unhealthy for sure.

a poorly tuned LB might be just as effective.

Sorry LB owners but that's funny.

Brings back a childhood memory of my Grandfather.

Cool Re: Mosquito fogger attachment for lawnmower

Ken:

The stuff they sell for the electric and propane foggers is the same stuff they used on lawn mower conversions. I have stayed away from the propane units because they cost too much to use as the propane is also used as the propellant as well as being the fuel to heat the nozzle. My electric unit sometimes drips so I have to back off the trigger occasionally to allow the barrel to heat up for proper vaporization.

Long time ago I had one on an old Sears Easy start mower that had a nipple off the muffler that extended under the deck.

The thing to do when using any of the foggers is to be on the upwind side of the areas you are spraying and to use the highest density fog setting possible so that it kind of rolls over the area you are spraying.

I can build one by wrapping some tubing around a muffler or just dripping directly on the muffler, but I was hoping for an easy way out by getting a ready made model.

Thanks!

You might have good luck checking out old hardware stores in your area.

One town I lived in used a V/8 Olds engine mounted in the bed of a pickup truck with a boat gas tank and it had extended straight exhaust headers point up and out at a 45 degree angle, they run the engine at a fast idle and dripped the fogging fluid into the carb, the carb had the air cleaner removed. They would goose the engine up every once in a while to clear out the cylinders.
I think that you may be able to do the same thing on a mower, hang a small copper tube in the intake and drip fogging fluid into the intake.
