What is the amount of Demon Max used for mosquito control?

I'm reading the reviews on your product and seeing 1/2 oz. and 1oz. Used per gallon of water we live in Mn. The Mosquitos can be extreme in the summer months.


The rate you saw of 1/2 oz per gallon is the correct rate per the Demon Max label for mosquitoes. While it does say you can use it at 1 oz per gallon for harder to kill insects like Scorpions, it is not recommended at that rate for mosquitoes. Try to limit moisture areas or standing water on the property as much as possible, spray not just the top but also the underneath side of leave of bushes, trees and other dense foliage on the property where mosquitoes harbor and breed, and consider mixing in an IGR like Nyguard IGR to help stop the reproductive cycle.
