can I use a normal backpack sprayer/blower to apply Demon WP for mosquito control? how often does Demon WP need to be applied to control mosquitoes? how much Demon wp should be used per gallon of water for mosquito control?
You can use Demon WP in a backpack sprayer for mosquito control. Demon WP is not labeled for use in a mist blower. If you would like to use a product in a mist blower for mosquito control you can use Talstar P. According to the Demon WP product label: for mosquito control, apply as a general structural perimeter spray to landscape plantings, turf, and building foundations to control mosquitoes. Yards or other frequented areas enclosed by landscaping can benefit from the creation of a mosquito barrier to reduce invading mosquitoes by the treatment of perimeter vegetation. For best results, apply Demon WP at recommended rates in 2-5 gallons of water per 1,000 sq. ft. Higher volumes applied result in better coverage and, as a rule, will improve control. Demon WP can reapplied every 4 weeks outdoors.
