Can the fogmaster 7401 be used to kill mosquitoes in back yard? Want to place fogger on deck railing....

Please let me know if a different type of fogger would be better to use to rid back yard of moquitos. We would also like to spray our grass to kill mosquitos and other insects, any suggestions?


The 7401 could be placed on your deck for the backyard, but fogging solutions only provide temporary control of mosquitoes.  Talstar is our most popular selling product for mosquito control.  It is a liquid concentrate that you mix with water and apply using any hand pump sprayer or backpack sprayer.  The key is to apply it to all shrubs, trees, and other foliage around the house or patio you are trying to provide relief at.  It 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.  It should be applied every 30 days for optimum control.
