OUTDOOR MOSQUITO CONTROL
To control adult mosquitoes apply as a fog or fine mist using good mechanical, thermal or compressed air equipment. For best results, treat when wind velocity does not exceed 5 miles per hour. Application in the evening or early morning is recommended.
Treat area thoroughly with particular attention around low and marshy places, shorelines, stagnant pools or ponds and shrubbery or vegetation where mosquitoes may rest. Apply at a rate of 0.5 fluid ounces per 1000 square feet.
USE ON GARDENS & ORNAMENTALS
This insecticide may be used outdoors in gardens or in greenhouses throughout the growing season or as a pre-harvest treatment when other insecticides are prohibited due to residue restrictions and use limitations.
For best results, use throughout the growing season to prevent buildups of insect infestations. Using good mechanical, thermal or compressed air equipment, spray plants from a distance of 1 ½ to 2 feet using 7 ½ - 8 fl. oz. to cover 1000 sq. ft. To prevent injury to plants, avoid visibly wetting the foliage.
Apply in the early morning or late evening when air is still, treating all foliage with particular attention to the underside of leaves. Contact insects directly whenever possible. Repeat treatment every 7-10 days or as re-infestation occurs.
This was expensive stuff so I figured it would work well in my thermal fogger for Mosquitoes.
It works in the unit, but takes an excessive amount to get minimal immediate results.
I would not buy this again,
Our guys had to go out into the swamp to get some trees and this really helped to protect them. Also this product is the least toxic which is something I look for. Didn't want our guys breathing that horrible toxic stuff everyone uses.
I am using a thermal fogger to apply Bonide Bug Beater Yard and Garden Insect Fog. Do I use this full strength, or do I need to dilute the product with water or oil before using in it my fogging equipment?
Bug Beater Yard and Garden Insect Fog comes ready to use, no mixing or diluting is required. Please refer to the Bug Beater Yard and Garden Insect Fog product label for specific application usage rates, as they can vary according to what type of insect or area you are treating.
I want to use my propane fogger for tick and mosquito control
If ticks are in the area when you fog and they are touched by the fog, they will die. But the bug beater insect fog does not have a long term residual, so it really only kills what it touches when it is wet. For 30 day control of ticks, mosquitoes and other insects, we would recommend Talstar.
