Bob from New Prague, Mn writes,

I purchased permethrin for mosquito control. I am confused about the dilution rate.

What do you recommend?


If you purchased Permethrin SFR it is only labeled for mosquito control on livestock and in livestock premises like barns. For yard treatments of mosquitoes our top product is the Bifen IT, which is also a residual concentrate you mix with water and spray in the target areas of the property. You mix Bifen at the rate of 1oz per gallon of water and spray it roughly every 30 days or so outdoors for control.
