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.
The products in the Mosquito Control Kit - Professional are toxic to fish and other aquatic life. It is recommended to apply at least 25 ft. away from the lake to avoid any runoff or drift. Apply at least 24 hours before you are expecting any rain.
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.
Mosquito Control Kit - Professional will start killing insects minutes to hours after making contact with the treated area.
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.
The liquid concentrates in the Mosquito Control Kit - Professional can be applied with a hand pump, backpack or hose end sprayer or a mist blower not a fogger.
