How do I mix Tempo SC Ultra to kill Mosquitoes in lawn turf?
I have a lawn spraying business and have a rig with 500 ga. Tank , diaphragm pump set at 100 pounds, 4 gallons per 1000 sq feet thanks
Per the Tempo SC Ultra Product Label: For Mosquito control, when using roughly 5 gallons of water per 1000 sq/ft, you will use 40-80 ml per 25 gallons of water. At the lower rate, this comes out to 800 ml of Tempo per 500 gallon tank.
An alternative product that is one of our top mosquito control insecticide concentrates, that will be typically cheaper per gallon of finished solution would be our Bifen IT. You would use 1.5-3 gallons of Bifen per 200 gallons of water. For your rig you would need at the lower rate, 3.5 gallons of Bifen.
