I purchased a Stihl SR200 backpack blower/mister and I am trying to find an effective insecticide to control mosquitoes.What insecticide or combination of insecticides would you recommend?
The Mosquito Control Kit - Professional would be a great option to use in a backpack blower. This kit contains two insecticide concentrates, an insect growth regulator (IGR), 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 Insect Growth Regulator prohibits the development of immature mosquitoes, and Altosid Pro-G is a larvicide to treat standing water or areas likely to flood. Using all of these products together is the best way to control mosquito populations. Please see our Mosquito Treatment Article for more tips and information.
