    This product worked wonderfully. I only wish it would last a bit longer. In southern Louisiana mosquitos are a year-round issue, so this is gonna get pricey. Thanks for a great, natural, safe product!

    Useless

    By Brian on 08/31/2018

    I followed the directions on the bottle to the letter and this product had absolutely no effect. A couple of hours later, after the sun went down, I sat outside in the treated area and was bitten 3 times within 10 minutes. For context, I do not have standing water on my property and do not live in a wooded area where you would expect an abundance of mosquitoes. I tried this product because it contains natural oils instead of chemicals - I hate to say this but, chemicals work better.

Q
Can Bonide Mosquito Beater Natural RTS safely be sprayed directly on my plants?

Should the spray be directed on the mulched bed ground only or should it also be sprayed on the plants themselves? I do not want to harm my exquisite garden in any way.

A

Because Bonide Mosquito Beater Natural RTS contains different plant oils, it is recommended to apply it in the early morning or in the evening, so that it has adequate time to dry before temperatures get too high.  Applying during the heat of the day can cause foliage to burn.
