Which insecticide for a garden hose sprayer?
I want to spray a large area of my yard for a variety of insects with a garden hose sprayer. I am currently using Malathion, but I was wondering if there was something better and at reasonable price.
would be a great choice. You can use Bifen in a hand pump sprayer or with a hose end, although you will get more uniform and accurate coverage with a hand pump than you will a hose. You would typically mix 1 ounce to a gallon of water for all the insects in your yard and you can spray the bushes, yard, ornamentals and trees for mosquitoes, ants, spiders, and many other pests.
