How do I mix Talstar in a mister for mosquito control?

I am wanting to treat a one acre lawn for mosquitoes. I dont see the application rate for a mister it shows .33 to 1 ounce per gallon per 1,000 square feet. that would be over 43.5 gallon for one acre...i would need to refill about 12.5 times..that seems to be a lot of material for one acre from a backpack mister/blower.

Answer:

The application usage rate that you noted in your question is correct for mosquito control. Most folks do not treat the entire acre but instead choose to treat in the areas where the mosquitoes will actually make contact with a treated area. The key is to apply it to all shrubs, trees, and other foliage around the house or where you are trying to provide relief.  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 during the heat of the day.  Talstar should be applied every 30 days for optimum control.
