Always the Best Multi Bug Killer Available
By Bob in Jamestown NC on 06/28/2010
I've been using Malathion to control insects outdoors for many years. This product can be used on most all plants with no harm, as well as outdoor surfaces and is the most effective product I've ever used . I even spray my mulched areas, house foundation areas, bricked porch and patio, especially to control ants. If you have ant problems this is the product you want to use. Be sure to follow all directions and I wear protective gloves as the product leaves a slight oil residue and odor on skin. Use in calm weather and dilute according to directions. You may not like the slight odor this product leaves behind but it will eventually fade away but so will your bug problem! ! !

I use the product for general purpose outdoor control. I find it most effective for mosquitos. The cost of the Malathion is good as was the service from DMOPC. I will definetly order again.

Seems to be working!
By Wv in Parkersburg, West Virginia on 08/29/2012
I have problems with mosquitos and biting flies. I've sprayed twice with Malathion 57% and have noticed a decrease in both pests. This product is a residual, so it lasts a bit longer than others that are not. The only downside is the heavy chemical smell, but given the results thus far, I can live with that. I've sprayed my plants and shrubbery, and so far have noticed no ill-effects. Many thanks to you guys for your help and patience. I'll be re-ordering again.

Used properly, this product works well on fruit & nut trees as well as yards for pest control. My Dad ( age 92) have used it for many years.
Best Overall Multi Use Product.
By Bobkat in Jamestown, NC on 01/22/2016
I've been using this product for several decades, yes decades! Always reliable, always my first choice for outdoor insect control. Once you get pests under control stick to a scheduled maintenance routine and bugs will not be a problem. Words of advice are, apply in late evening, calm winds, wear gloves and follow all directions. I've used this product on everything from trees and shrubs to delicate flowers and turf. Only downside is product odor can be strong if using a heavy setting.

QWhen applying Malathion, what is the suggested mixture percentage per gallon of water for a fruit tree?
AMalathion 57% is typically meant for treating large areas or crop land. The label typically calls for 1 to 1.5 pints per 100 gallons of water for fruit trees which works out to be .15 to .20 ounces per gallon of water. However, for safety and proper treatment you should find your particular fruit tree on the product label for accuracy and exact mixture ratios.

QDoes malathion kill stink bug in vegtable gardens?
AMalathion 57% is specifically labeled for stinkbugs and should do a great job for you when used as directed on the product label.
QCan malathion 57% be used for whole lawns and landscaped areas? If so how would you mix per gallon of water?
AAccording to the manufacturer of Malathion 57%, you should not use the product over your entire yard. We do carry a full line of products that are labeled for use on lawns, gardens and other landscaped areas. You can see these products by clicking on the Lawn and Garden section on the left side of our homepage or by clicking here Lawn and Garden.
QHow do I mix Malathion 57% for flea infestations on animals and carpets?
AMalathion 57% is not labeled for use indoors or for use on animals. Tengard SFR is labeled for fleas and can be used indoors and on dogs (do not use on cats). It is important to vacuum prior to the application to help draw the fleas up from the carpet so that they may come into contact with the insecticide. Tengard can also be used to control fleas in lawns, which is often the source of a flea infestation. Adding an insect growth regulator such as Martins IGR can help disrupt the fleas breeding cycle and help control new infestations of fleas for up to 7 months.
QWhen should I start spraying Malathion 57% for squash borers?
I see on your label that this product will rid squash borers. When would I spray the squash to prevent the infestation from starting? And do I spray under the leaves or on the base? Help!
AAccording to the Malathion 57% product label, you should start spraying when you see evidence of insect activity. It is very important to spray the entire plant including the underside of the leaves where many of these insects tend to harbor.
QWhen is it okay to water after applying Malathion 57% spray?
A Malathion is considered rain fast after it has dried. Give at approximately 4 hours to completely dry.

QWill Malation 57 burn a fruit tree if sprayed?
fruit trees have brown spotted leaves..
AMalathion 57% is labeled for applications of certain fruits. We will need more information on the insect or disease that is causing the brown spots on the leaves and the kinds of fruit that you will be applying the product to so that we can offer the best product and application specific to your needs to ensure that the tree does not burn.

QWill Malathion 57% work on Japanese beetle on elm trees?
AMalathion 57% is labeled for Japanese Beetles and should do a great job for you when used as directed on the product label. Malathion 57% is typically meant for treating large areas or crop land. We would recommend Talstar P. It is a insecticide that is labeled for lawn and ornamentals and is safe for plants, bushes, shrubs and trees. Talstar will provide a 30 day residual on the plants that you spray and should provide relief against the Japanese beetles whereas the Malathion will only kill the ones that it makes contact with during application.

QIs Malathion good for grubs?
ANo, Malathion 57% is not labeled for grubs. We would recommend using Milky Spore Lawn Spreader Mix over two years in order to treat for grubs for a long period of time. One bag will treat 7000 sq. ft. However, it is too late in the year to be doing any type of grub treatments. This should only be used during the spring, summer and fall months.

QWill Malathion 57% kill yellow jackets?
AMalathion 57% is highly toxic to bees including yellow jackets. If you are unsure of their nesting location, please apply our Alpine Yellow Jacket Kit products for treatment. Tempo 1% Insectcide Dust works great if you are able to loacte and dust the opening of their nesting site.

QDoes Malathion control white fly on ficus bushes?
AWhiteflies are listed on the Malathion 57% product label for crop treatment on cotton. We recommend that you apply Dominion 2L as a soil drench and Bifen IT as a foliar application for whitefly treatment on ficus bushes for the best control.
