Does Equil Lamdba work well for mosquito treatment? At what rate should it be mixed?
Surrounded by trees and shade areas on 2 sides of our property as well as throughout the yard. Planning to spray all tree lines and shaded areas. Commercial applicator sprayed approx 80 gallons of water last season with the chemical he used (I believe he used Equil Lambda with Lesco Spreader Sticker. How should I be mixing Equil Lambda for this purpose? Any recommendations? Is the Spreader sticker necessary? Do you carry it?
Equil Lambda does work for mosquitoes. You will need to use 0.8 fl. oz. (24 mL) of Equil per gallon of water for each 1,000 sq ft area for residual mosquito control. The addition of a spreader-sticker at specified rates may enhance the control of insects on certain species of ornamentals having waxy, hard to wet foliage. We do carry Hi Yield Spreader Sticker which can be added to the Equil Lambda dilution.
