Is Permethrin SFR effective for outdoor for Mosquito control? Does it need an IGR like ExciteR with it?
Looking to spray small wooded section in back yard and 2 trees.
Permethrin SFR is not labeled for general mosquito control so we do not recommend it for this use. We usually recommend using Talstar P for mosquito control and it can be used with an IGR such as Nyguard IGR to help sterilize the adults. (Exciter is a pyrethrum which causes a faster kill but it is not an IGR).
