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.

    I think this stuff is ok. I used it at the beach to control the mosquitoes. Have not seen many since I used it with my fogger.

    Not impressed.............I would not buy again

    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,

    great product

    By Diana on 09/11/2014

    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.

Q

Q
Is Bug Beater insect fog effective against ticks?

I want to use my propane fogger for tick and mosquito control

A
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.
