Can I mix together Permethrin SFR with Bifen IT & NyGuard IGR to control ticks & mosquitos?
I have 2 acres bordering woods heavy with deer and MANY ticks. Mosquitos too. What's the best spray to control ticks and mosquitos for the longest time for this area? How long can I expect it to last? Also, what's the best delivery method you can recommend.
We would recommend only mixing Permethrin SFR and NyGuard IGR. It would not benefit adding Bifen IT also as it is a pyrethroid concentrate also. Or you could apply Bifen IT and NyGuard IGR together. Either of these combinations would eradicate mosquitoes and ticks. Either solution would offer a 30 day outdoor residual. Please let us know if you need anything else.
