    5 of 5 stars  Always the Best Multi Bug Killer Available
    By Bob in Jamestown NC on 06/28/2010
    Verified Purchase

    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! ! !

    5 of 5 stars  Seems to be working!
    By Wv in Parkersburg, West Virginia on 08/29/2012
    Verified Purchase

    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.

    4 of 5 stars  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.

QCan I put malathion on my goat pasture and how long should i keep them off before returning to graze?

AMalathion, up until a couple of months ago, was labeled for use on pastures. I now see that the manufacturer has removed this use from their label so I gave them a call. Control Solutions has told us that they do not recommend that use Malathion on the pasture at all. The manufacturer is checking on another product that may work better for your needs. We should have more information for you tomorrow.

QIs there a mixture ratio for Malation 57% for a small garden per 1 gallon of water?
Would like to know if there is a catch all mixture for a small garden about 450 Sq ft. Of Cucumbers, squash, tomatoes, watermelon, parsley etc And does this product work on pomegranate trees.


When using Malathion 57%, each of the vegetable and fruits you have listed have a different ratio to use per gallon of water. You would use any where from 0.15 - 0.28 fl oz per gallon of water for each one you have listed with squash requiring the most of 0.28 fl oz per gallon. However, watermelon only requires .15 fl oz per gallon. So unfortunately,††there truly is no catch all for your over all garden that would cover everything based on the product label.†

QCan I put Malathion 57% on my dogs for fleas?


Malathion 57% is NOT labeled for use on any animals. This product is only labeled for certain insects on plants, fruits and vegetables and specifically states that it is harmful to animals. Please refer to the product label for how to use it in the proper areas only. If you are looking for a product safe to use on your pet for flea control, you could use Permethrin SFR which has a very low dilution that is safe to be used on pets by either wiping it on with a towel or using it carefully as a dip.
