Purchased as an alternative to some of the standard chemical mosquito misting formulas, since we have a baby on the way and another crawling all over the place. I didn't want them ingesting anything brought into the house on the floor. This oil formula is awful. Citronella candles work better. We've been running it through our mister 6x a day including peak mosquito hours, diluted 1:1 with water. We've seen more mosquitoes in the last month since we've tried it than we have all summer. Also, typically the other chemicals we've use deter or kill other critters--we continue to see tons of spiders, ants, roaches etc. I wouldn't buy again and wouldn't recommend even wasting money to try it because of its alternative label.
Thank you for your comments! The rate to use Essentria All Purpose in an automatic misting system would be 0.5 to 3 oz per gallon of water, or 27.5 to 165 oz per 55 gal tank. This should remain agitated with the addition of a surfactant and is stable up to one month. We would recommend the IC3 formulation for you, which is still very safe around people and pets, but which will have longer residual. Be sure to follow the label directions for use in your equipment:
