How to use Cyonara 9.7 for outdoor mosquito control?

I have been using Flit 10EC for mosquito control, mixing about 8 oz per gallon of water. In mid morning or afternoon, once mosquitoes have retreated to the shade of the foliage, I'll spray on, in and under our evergreens and deciduous bushes, as well as spraying the foliage on the edge of our property as a repellent. We are bordered by forest and about 1/2 mile from mosquito heaven (water and designated wetland). We have had a very wet spring and summer in Chicago. The Flit has done pretty well- especially compared to our neighbors- but I'd like something better, and I am using about 12 gallons of mix per treatment. So would you recommend the Cyonara for my purpose and at what concentrate/water ratio? Does the Cyonara have a longer residual than permethrin? Can I use it as a residual/repellent for wasps/yellow jackets on wooden and plastic play sets (they now need regular monitoring for new nests).

Answer:

Talstar P 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.  It is also very good for bees and wasps, however you would not want to apply it or any other product directly to play sets where children will touch treated surfaces.  Also, Talstar P is labeled for over 100 different insects and will work in just about any situation.
