Outdoor use for mosquitos?

Will this fogger with Riptide be more effective at controlling mosquitos vs. using a pump sprayer with Talstar P? I want to get the best bang for my buck but don't want to waste money on something that will not work and don't want to spend 700 on a blower.


Yes, a Commander Tri-Jet Fogger can be used outdoors as well as indoors. Riptide ULV is labeled to be used in the Commander Tri-Jet Fogger, however, Riptide is a contact kill; it does not have any type of residual effect after it is dry.  Talstar P (Talstar One) has a residual effect that would keep on killing for at least 30 days outdoors and 90 days indoors. They are both wonderful options for mosquito control but if you are looking for something that is going to last longer, we would recommend using Talstar P (Talstar One).
