    Q
    Talstar P vs Green Products for Mosquito Control
    I bought Talstar P from you guys to use in my Stihl SR 200 mister, and the stuff is outstanding! We have a mosquito free yard even after a few summer thunderstorms. My question is can I expect to get the same results from one of your green products? If so, which one would you recommend? My lot backs up to a few acre pond, and I have a small garden so I have second thoughts about using Talstar P again even though it works so well. We also have used Eradico in the past for mosquito control and would like to know what they spray. Thanks in advance!
    A
    Yes, our green products would work just as well as Talstar P (Talstar One) does. We would recommend using EcoVia EC. It is a wonderful green product that has a residual of 3-4 weeks. You would use 2-4 fl. oz. per gallon of water for mosquitos in your mister. This product is not labeled to be sprayed on edibles but can be used as a broadcast across your lawn, ornamentals and trees. This product can also be used in a regular sprayer as well.

    Q
    Does the residual affect depend on how you treat using EcoVia EC?
    Does EcoVia EC last long when using a handheld push vs a mister, because of the amount that is applied is more from a hand held pump? I always thought organic insecticides only last about two week and synthetic lasts up to a month?
    A
    EcoVia EC will have the same residual if you apply in a pump sprayer or mister. It will offer about a 3-4 week residual and synthetic pyrethroids offer a monthly exterior residual.

    Q
    I have cats, Is EcoVia EC safe for them, and do they find the odor offensive?
    A
    EcoVia EC is safe once it is dry. The cats should not be in the room that you are spraying until the product is completely dry. This could take from 2-3 hours. After a few hours, there should no longer be an odor, but it is a green product and smells like botanical oils. This smell should not be strong. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
