Mosquito control for a large lawn

We have huge concentration of mosquitoes this year. We are in the country (Northern Minnesota) with a 3 to 5 acre mowed area. Is Conquer appropriate? How many oz. of Conquer per acre? I have a powered sprayer towed behind a lawn tractor.

Answer:

Conquer is not labeled to be used for mosquitoes outdoors. Talstar is our most popular selling product for mosquito control.  It is a liquid concentrate that you mix with water and apply using a sprayer.  You will need about 1 oz of product for every 1,000 sq ft of space you need to treat. The key is to apply it to all shrubs, trees, and other foliage around the house or patio where you are trying to provide relief.  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.  Talstar should be applied every 30 days for optimum control.
