George from Clay,mi writes,

I live on the water in Michigan and usually have my house sprayed to control spiders and mosquitos.

I would like to use a pump spryer and do it myself. What product can be safe around water and mixed to spray whole house and last for summer?


Riptide ULV Pyrethrin is really meant to be used in fogging applications, but it can be used in a hand pump sprayer for some uses, such as treating cattle. We would recommend using Talstar P (Talstar One) for spiders and mosquitoes. It can be used in a pump sprayer. You will mix 1 fl. oz. per gallon of water. Talstar P can be broadcast across your lawn, sprayed on shrubs, bushes, flowers, etc. It cannot be used on any type of edibles. This will last about 30 days outdoors. Talstar P can also be used indoors around the baseboards and cracks and crevices.
