What product do you recommend I use to control mosquitos and black fly. I live in the woods in Michigan. I use a Stihl SR420 Backpack Blower/Sprayer.

Answer:

For long lasting control of mosquitoes we recommend treating with Talstar P using a hand pump sprayer. Spray the underside of leaves of trees and bushes around your property and also treat door frames, window frames, and screens to stop the insects from coming indoors. Treat early morning or in the evening when the mosquitoes are most active for the best control. Riptide would only work well for quick control of flying insects but it does not offer a long lasting residual.
