    5 of 5 stars  Always the Best Multi Bug Killer Available
    By Bob in Jamestown NC on 06/28/2010
    Verified Purchase

    I've been using Malathion to control insects outdoors for many years. This product can be used on most all plants with no harm, as well as outdoor surfaces and is the most effective product I've ever used . I even spray my mulched areas, house foundation areas, bricked porch and patio, especially to control ants. If you have ant problems this is the product you want to use. Be sure to follow all directions and I wear protective gloves as the product leaves a slight oil residue and odor on skin. Use in calm weather and dilute according to directions. You may not like the slight odor this product leaves behind but it will eventually fade away but so will your bug problem! ! !

    5 of 5 stars  Seems to be working!
    By Wv in Parkersburg, West Virginia on 08/29/2012
    Verified Purchase

    I have problems with mosquitos and biting flies. I've sprayed twice with Malathion 57% and have noticed a decrease in both pests. This product is a residual, so it lasts a bit longer than others that are not. The only downside is the heavy chemical smell, but given the results thus far, I can live with that. I've sprayed my plants and shrubbery, and so far have noticed no ill-effects. Many thanks to you guys for your help and patience. I'll be re-ordering again.

    4 of 5 stars  Best Overall Multi Use Product.
    By Bobkat in Jamestown, NC on 01/22/2016

    I've been using this product for several decades, yes decades! Always reliable, always my first choice for outdoor insect control. Once you get pests under control stick to a scheduled maintenance routine and bugs will not be a problem. Words of advice are, apply in late evening, calm winds, wear gloves and follow all directions. I've used this product on everything from trees and shrubs to delicate flowers and turf. Only downside is product odor can be strong if using a heavy setting.

QWhen applying Malathion, what is the suggested mixture percentage per gallon of water for a fruit tree?

AMalathion 57% is typically meant for treating large areas or crop land.  The label typically calls for 1 to 1.5 pints per 100 gallons of water for fruit trees which works out to be .15 to .20 ounces per gallon of water.  However, for safety and proper treatment you should find your particular fruit tree on the product label for accuracy and exact mixture ratios.

QHow do I mix Malathion 57% for flea infestations on animals and carpets?

AMalathion 57% is not labeled for use indoors or for use on animals. Tengard SFR is labeled for fleas and can be used indoors and on dogs (do not use on cats). It is important to vacuum prior to the application to help draw the fleas up from the carpet so that they may come into contact with the insecticide.  Tengard can also be used to control fleas in lawns, which is often the source of a flea infestation. Adding an insect growth regulator such as Martins IGR can help disrupt the fleas breeding cycle and help control new infestations of fleas for up to 7 months.

QCan I spray Malathion onto siding of my house?
Every year I get red concrete mites in my backyard and on my front porch and every year I do a combination of try Azaline spray and then Malathion and it always takes care of them. This year they are also going up onto the siding of my house. I do the Malathion in a hand powered spray bottle one of the pump once my question is once I make the mixture can I spray it onto the siding of my house where they go or will it seep through and into the air in the house?


Malathion 57% is only labeled to be used on crops, plants and trees, not on a building.  We would instead recommend something like D Fense SC.

QHow do I apply and mix Malathion 57% to kill termites?


Malathion 57% is not labeled for termitess. This product is only labled for certain insects on plants, fruits and vegetables. If you are looking for a termite control product, you could use something like Taurus SC

Taurus SC is a non-repellent insecticide that is undetectable to target pests, allowing them touch, ingest and spread the insecticide throughout the entire colony. For termites, Taurus SC will eliminate termite colonies in less than 90 days on average.  

You may also want to take a look at our Termite Guide for more information on how to treat this pest.

QWhat is the mixing ratio using a backpack sprayer with Malathion 57% on pecan trees?


Malathion 57% can be used on pecan trees at a rate of 1.5 - 2 pints per Acre (24-32 oz per Acre). That breaks down to 0.55 - 0.73 oz per 1,000 square feet. We would recommend using that rate in 1-3 gallons of water in a handheld sprayer. Please see the product label for complete application instructions.
