    Malathion Insecticide Spray

    By Anonymous on 07/31/2013

    I have bag worms on one of my evergreen i did not notice the bags as they were at the end and back of the tree. within a week nearly 60% of the tree was gone. when i received the Hi-Yield 55% Malathion insecticide, i sprayed the tree generously using the measures as per the instructions. i noticed the damage started immediately to slow down. I reapplied the spray again after 10 days. I hope the damage will stop completely and I am planning to spray again in April next year. i will write another review after a month and hope to give 5 stars in lieu of 4

    This a great product

    By Anonymous on 08/27/2013

    I have used this same product for 42 years and have good luck with it. You cannot buy this product just anywhere. I use it on fruit trees garden vegetables and flowers. works best to routinely spray and not wait for bugs to damage plants. I spray about once a week.

    Control Wasp and Dirt dobbers

    By Jerry on 03/18/2015

    I mix a very strong solution with water and spray under eaves and overhangs of my house and it repels wasp from building nest. They do not like the odor and I spray about 2-3 times a year. I start at first sign of warm weather when wasp first appear

    Malathion effective for ants

    By Oliver on 04/27/2017

    I touched up 3 or 4 surfaces on the floor with malathion. I also left a bit of it in a plastic cup on the floor away from where we walk. 24 hours later I saw about 4 ants that looked unconscious. That was the last time I saw the ants. 30 years ago I had the same good luck with it using it in a very similar manner and it worked extremely well.

Q
Can Hi-Yield 55% Malathion Insecticide Spray be used to control ticks in the yard?
A
Hi-Yield 55% Malathion Insecticide Spray is not labeled for use on lawn or for ticks. Talstar P would be a great choice for outdoor tick control. We also recommend adding an insect growth regulator such as Archer IGR to Talstar to stop the ticks from being able to develop while you are trying to eliminate the infestation. You will use 1 oz of Talstar +  1oz of Archer IGR per gallon of water per 1,000 sq ft area. Do not make spot applications. Treat the entire area where exposure to ticks may occur. Use more water (not more product) when treating areas with dense ground cover or heavy leaf litter. Ticks may be reintroduced from surrounding areas on host animals. Re-treatment may be necessary to achieve and/or maintain control during periods of high pest pressure. All of your dogs should be treated with a product that is specifically labeled for use on dogs for tick control.

You can also help by creating a "tick safe zone" in your yard. You should have an area that is at least 9 ft wide between your yard and any wooded area. Trim back trees to allow as much sunlight as possible into your yard. Keep grass as short. Remove as much leaf litter as possible. A clearly defined, well manicured border between your yard and any wooded areas or weedy lots will reduce the chance of ticks infesting your yard.

Q
Can I use malathion in a (hot) fogger?
A
Malathion 55% is not labeled to be applied from a fogger, hot or cold.  It should be applied from a hand pump sprayer or gas powered/electric sprayer.  We do have products that are labeled for use in a thermal fogger.  One of the most popular is Bonide Bug Beater Lawn & Garden Fog.
