Best way to spray for mosquitoes in NC
We have a pool in the back and live in a very wooded area. Mosquitoes are BAD back there, but I'd hate to kill all the beneficial bugs also. I hear garlic sprays work well, as does Permethrin, but am not sure how to go about this myself. Misting systems are $3000 and I'm not sure that's a good way to go. Help?
Unfortunately insecticides are not selective. Spraying for mosquitoes will also have some effect on the beneficial insects since their basic biology is the same. Eco Exempt IC-2 plus Eco Adjuvant would be a good choice for mosquito control. Eco Exempt IC-2 is an all natural product that would need to be mixed with adjuvant (available on our website) and water and then sprayed on the underside of the leaves of trees and bushes and around the perimeter of your property.
