    Q
    Can you mix the products inside of the Mosquito Control Kit with Mosquito Barrier?

    Mosquito Barrier is a repellent and using them with the Mosquito Control Kit-Professional will be counterproductive. The product inside the kit are meant to kill mosquitoes, and the Mosquito Barrier will repel them from the area.

    Q
    I live on 3 heavily wooded acres outside Chicago. Will the Mosquito Control Kit Professional work?
    I am going to need to invest in some sort of control. Permanent misting is too costly. Am looking at ULV treatment. Is there an advantage to thermal misting vs. blower? Is Talstar enough? Will likely be treating entire neighborhood but a larger unit doesn't get me the portability I need to go into the woods- thoughts? Initial budget ~$800...
    A
    Talstar P is a very good product for mosquitoes. Using this product with a mister, such as the Solo 451 Mist Blower, is a good option if you are treating a lot of area. If you are wanting to kill the mosquitoes quickly, we would recommend using Talstar P in conjunction with something like ExciteR Insecticide. This is a synergist that will make the product work faster. You may also want to look into something like the Professional Mosquito Kit Ultimate. This kit contains everything you will need to ensure you are treating for mosquitoes effectively.

  • Asked by Mark from Winston-salem, Nc

    Q
    The Mosquito Control Kit - Professional seems great but I am not sure why I would need all 4 products. Could you explain the process of how to properly use the 4 products together to controlled pests?
    A
    There are three concentrates with different active ingredients included in the Mosquito Control Kit - Professional. All of these concentrates must be diluted with water and applied with pressurized spray equipment. We recommend using Talstar P for most applications, adding Archer IGR for heavier populations, and diluting Harmonix with one or both of these solutions to include a faster initial cleanout of existing adult mosquitoes. Altosid is a ready-to-use granule that contains the insect growth regulator (IGR) Methoprene. Altosid is not a true larvicide, though it does prevent adult mosquito emergence. Granules will gradually sink in water and will release active ingredient continuously for up to 30 days. Please refer the links below for detailed application instructions on application. Please let us know if you need anything else. We are always happy to help!

  • Asked by Michael from Marion, Il
    07/29/2018
    Q
    What is best combination for mosquito control with in backpack mister?
    A

    We would recommend our Mosquito Control Kit - Professional. The kit contains products with different active ingredients that target different stages of mosquito development for the most thorough population control.This kit contains two insecticide concentrates, an Insect Growth Regulator, as well as a larvicide so that you can treat both land and standing water. Exciter Insecticide contains natural pyrethrins and Piperonyl Butoxide for a quick knockdown of adult mosquitoes, while Talstar P offers residual protection on mosquito resting areas. Tekko Pro IGR prohibits the development of immature mosquitoes, and Altosid Pro-G is a larvicide to treat standing water or areas likely to flood. Apply spray solution to adult mosquito resting areas, including ornamental plants such as dense brush, tall grasses, and especially the undersides of leaves on trees and bushes. Also treat resting areas on structures such as under eaves or other overhangs, under decks and porches, and in other moist, shady areas where mosquitoes may rest or breed.

  • Asked by Dominique from Charlotte, Nc
    08/14/2018
    Q
    Do you really need all 4 products in the Mosquito Control Kit - Professional?
    A

    Talstar P, Exciter and Tekko Pro IGR should be mixed together with water to offer residual control (4 weeks), quicker kill and growth regulation. If there is not any standing water in the area being treated,the Altosid in the kit would not be necessary.  Talstar P is used for residual control but does not offer a very quick kill so the Exciter will help with that. Both of those products do not control the insects reproductive cycle so impeding that with the Tekko Pro is helpful. Please take a few moments to review our treatment article on How to Get Rid of Mosquitoes for more infornation.

    Q
    Are any of the products in the Mosquito Control Kit - Professional harmful to bees?
    A

    The products in the Mosquito Control Kit - Professional are not really selective, so they could potentially harm bees if the bees were to come into contact with a treated area.  To minimize this risk, it is recommended to apply during the morning or evening when bees are least active, and avoid spraying any blooming/flowering plants.
