How can you prevent mosquitoes using Bifen IT
We are living closer to golf/lake areas. More and more mosquitoes have been found around the house and some some come inside the house. Any most effective treatment should be done and how? Does Bifen kill or prevent acorpion too?
Bifen IT is a great product labeled for over 75 types of insects, including scorpions and especially mosquitoes. Mix 1oz Bifen IT per 1 gallon of water and apply as a perimeter treatment or broadcast treatment over the entire property. When treating for mosquitoes, it is important to focus on the undersides of leaves, bushes, trees, shrubs, decking, eaves, etc as this is where mosquitoes will hide during the day. Pay attention to damp areas and possible consider using BTI Mosquito Dunks in areas where you have standing water.
Bifen IT used inside the home as a crack and crevice treatment will last 90 days and 30 days outside the home as a perimeter or broadcast treatment.
