    Works well

    By Eric on 01/26/2011

    I bought one for my campground, once I recognized that the insecticide the company hired to control mosquitoes was available over the counter at our local farmer's supply. It was convenient, reliable, and allowed access to more places than the commercial applicator reached. I only regret not buying it sooner.

Q
Fogging vs. Spraying

What is more effective? Fogging or spraying for mosquitoes?

A
Both application methods are very effective as long as the applicator is thorough. Foggers of course make it easy to apply the product you choose into hard to reach places like the underside of leaves where mosquitoes like to harbor. One big difference is the types of products that can be used in a fogger vs a sprayer. Most fogging solutions consist of a short acting insecticide which will only offer a fast knockdown but will not leave a long lasting residual (Riptide, ULD BP-100). Spraying on the other hand gives you the option of using a product with a longer lasting residual (Talstar P, Equil Lambda 9.7). The Solo Backpack 450 is actually a mist blower, not a fogger and it can be used with a product such as Talstar for mosquito control.

Q
Solo Backpack 450 vs. Hand Pump Sprayer

What would be the most effective way to spray for mosquitoes on a commercial basis? Using a backpack misting sprayer or something like the Solo Backpack 450 fogger? I would be using either Talstar or Bifen. Thanks

A
It all depends on how much area you are treating and how often.  There is definitely nothing more convenient then the Solo sprayer since it will hold large quantity and cover a large area faster.  You would have to decide if the cost is worth the reward since you can buy a 4 gallon backpack sprayer for a third of the cost, but it may take you longer to treat a large area.

Q
What chemical would be best for gnat control?

Looking at this mistblower to try to tame a significant gnat population. Also have an outdoor spider problem in a large screen enclosure (100X30X30) that I'd like to treat. What would be the best chemical for gnats out of a mistblower? And then, same question, but for spiders.

A
Talstar P would be the answer to both the gnat and spider control issue. Talstar P is labeled for over 75 different pests including gnats and spiders, is odorless, dries clear, leaves no stains, is non-irritating to the skin, won't break down easily with rainfall, is gentle on plants and can be used in a mistblower.

Q
Is it necessary to order ulv nozzle for mosquitoes for the Solo Backpack 450 ?

What benefit does ulv nozzle give?

A
You do not need to order a special ulv nozzle for the solo 450 mist/blower.  It comes with 4 different tips and is constructed for mosquito application and to make very small droplet sizes, as well as for treating other insect problems.  The Solo 450 sprayer comes ready to use.
