Blower goes out of tune

I've got a blower that everytime I start it I need to adjust the fuel mixture screw...I've had a few two stroke motors that have done the same thing and I've alway's tried to figure out why...is it the mix ratio is wrong?

The carb probably needed to be cleaned, after messing with the mixture screws you probably changed the mixture to much. Sometimes it gets some debris into it and the vibration rattles it out. I'd clean the carb, set everything to manufacters specs and go from there.
