Application : .04–0.1 fl oz(1/3– 2/3 teaspoon) per gallon of water
For use around outside surfaces and around buildings (perimeter treatment).
Immediate knockdown of a variety of insects including ant and mosquitoes outdoors.
No visible residue or lingering odor.
Dried residues are non-toxic and non-repellent to honeybees.
• Mavrik Perimeter controls insects and controls or suppresses mite pests when used at labeled rates.
• Mavrik Perimeter works primarily through contact action, good spray coverage is necessary. Treat when pests are immature or at a susceptible stage and populations are manageable, before damage occurs. Repeat applications as needed, according to the specific use directions given on the product label.
• Residues of Mavrik Perimeter can continue to control certain insect pests for a week or longer. Growth dilution, climatic variables, and pest habits determine retreatment needs.
• Dilute Mavrik Perimeter in sufficient water to give thorough spray coverage. For best results under varying conditions, a range of use rates is recommended for most uses. Select the higher rates when pest pressure or damage potential is severe. The lower rates often give acceptable economic results. Buffer spray water to pH 5-7, if necessary.
I use this product in my professional mosquito control business in Minnesota. Provides weeks of control and it works great! I use a gas powered blower but a backpack sprayer will work fine. Also use of an IGR will extend the control period.
Do your products contain substances that contribute to bee colony collapse?
Do any of your products contain neonicotinoids and coumaphos, or any other chemicals known to inhibit the ability of bees in any way, to pollinate crops? I am referring to all your products but am presently concerned about TALSTAR. Please do not answer me by saying "no substantive proof exists linking bee deaths to....." etc. Thank you for your attention to my question.
We do carry many products that fall into the neonicotinoids class of insecticides and a few products that would fall into the coumaphos class of insecticides. Talstar is not one of them. Talstar falls into the pyrethroid class of insetcicides. It is still very important not to apply Talstar P to areas where bees are activiely foraging as the product is non-selective and will kill bees. We also carry Mavrik Perimeter which after it has dried is non toxic to bees and may be an option for folks that have a concern about bee colony collapse. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I am always happy to help.
Can Mavrik Perimeter Insecticide be used to treat mosquitoes in a backpack blower without killing bees?
Mavrik Perimeter Insecticide can be used to treat for mosquitoes. With Mavrik Perimeter there is no lingering odor or visible residue, and when dry it is non-toxic and non-repellent to honey bees. Mix Mavrik at a rate of 1/3 - 2/3 tsp per gallon of water.
Please tell me the difference in Mavrik Perimeter and Mavrik Aquaflow
I will be using the insecticide to spray roses. I usually mix in a 3 gallon sprayer.
Mavrik Aquaflow has been discontinued by the manufacturer and replaced with the Mavrik Perimeter. They both have the same amount of the active ingredient in them. Mavrik Perimeter is for commercial use on outdoor plants in ornamental plantings, plantscapes (including trees and shrubs, roses, flowerbeds, and gardens) and for perimeter treatment around buildings and outside surfaces.
Can Mavrik Perimeter be used to control small hive beetles in honey bee hives? Varroa mites?
If so, how should it be applied? Any side affects? Is it similar to Mavrik Aquaflow?
The most commonly purchased product for hive beetle control is the Maxforce FC Roach Bait stations. These stations are purchased by honey bee farmers and seem to be very effective. We have not had any information on anyone using the Mavrik Perimeter for varroa mites. We recommend calling the Mavrik manufacturer, Zoecon for more information 800-934-3532
What is the residual of Mavrik Perimeter? How does it compare to Talstar P for mosquito control?
Mavrik is going to be most effective as a contact spray and can continue to control certain insect pests for a week or longer though it should be reapplied as needed. Talstar P will have a residual of about 30 days outside. The key with mosquito treatments is to apply to the underside of leaves of trees and bushes as this is where the adults lay during the day.
