Should I use some type of fogger to control mosquitoes in my yard?
I live in NY on a wooded lot. I cannot enjoy the backyard when the mosquitoes are so bad.
Unfortunately you are very limited on what types of products you can purchase in New York and most foggers are restricted. Thankfully there is one product that is available to folks in New York and it does a pretty good job for mosquito control. Eco Exempt IC-2 is an all natural product that can be used in a regular hand pump sprayer or in automatic mosquito misting systems. To control adult mosquitoes and other biting flies using ground application, dilute 1 to 3 fluid ounces of Eco Exempt IC2 per gallon of
water. (We strongly suggest that you purchase the Eco Adjuvant with the IC2 product. Adjuvant will drastically increase the performance of the IC2 product.) Treat harborage areas such as the underside of leaves on shrubbery and other vegetation where mosquitoes/flies may rest. Shrubbery and vegetation around stagnant pools, marshy areas, ponds and shorelines should also be treated.
