Can Tengard SFR be safely sprayed around gardens if not sprayed directly on the plants? Also is Tengard effective for mosquitoes?
Tengard can be sprayed near gardens as long as you keep the product off of the plants and out of the drip-line/root zone of the plants. You should not actually use Tengard inside the garden plot. Tengard is only labeled to eliminate mosquitoes inside barns or animal holding facilities. For outdoor mosquito control Talstar P is our most popular product. The key is to mosquito control is to apply the selected product to all shrubs, trees, and other foliage around the house or patio where you are trying to provide relief. Sprays should be directed not only on top of the leaves and plants, but on the underside of the leaves as well which is where the mosquitoes hang out. Talstar should be applied every 30 days for optimum control.
