What can I use to get maximum mosquito control?
I use Talstar P as barrier control for mosquitoes at max rate per square ft. Is there another product available?
It is important to remember that mosquitoes breed and repopulate very quickly and you may continue to see mosquitoes in your area daily even when using a great residual control product such as Talstar. Mosquitoes must land on the treated areas to be killed so be sure you are spraying the areas where they are known to land such as the underside of the leaves on trees and shrubs. It is also helpful to spray a 2 ft wide band around the perimeter of your property to deter low flying mosquitoes from entering. You can add a product to Talstar called ExciteR. ExciteR will give you a fast knockdown of these biting pests and it is also somewhat repellent and Talstar will give you the long term residual you will need.
