Looking at getting into skeeter control this year. Wondering what people are using for different products and equipment. I will be using a stihl sr420 mister. Please share what equip and products you are using and any tips you might have. Thanks.

Your 420 Stihl should work fine for startup. If you get get a large area then a truck mounted ULV unit might be needed. Look into Products made by MGK they are the Mosquito pesticide guys that most Government agencies use. I suggest staying away from off brand products or snake oils.

One thing you don't want to do is spray at 600 psi with aa JG9 tree gun or try and treat your feeder cattle with your 420 stihl. The cattle will just run wild on your 640 acre pasture.

Google all the Auto Mist systems and study them. They are a installed system for repelling mosquito. your up scale customer just might like the idea and you can make a nice margin installing them fairly easy
