What is the best product for mosquitoes?

How can I use the product in a hose end sprayer? Ratio?


Talstar is our most popular selling product for mosquito control.  It is a liquid concentrate that you can use in a hose end sprayer at a 1 oz of product per gallon water per 1,000 sq ft ratio. The key is to apply it to all shrubs, trees, and other foliage around the house or property you are trying to provide relief at.  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.  It should be applied every 30 days for optimum control.
