      Hi. Recently started a mosquito and tick spray service (w/ MA) applicator lic. expanding my long time cleaning service and moving in different service direction. I service North of Boston, MA

      Tried Essentria ic3. Not so good.

      So after spraying a dozen or so times (Stihl sr200 blower) Used Mosquito Barrier product with varying degrees of customer satisfaction with hit or miss. My cousin uses a guy with a formulation similar to what you might be doing - Mosquito Barrier Garlic with Crosscheck .03 oz (bifen). She's happy with the results for mosquitos - one spray lasts about 14 days. Ok that's were I'll start.

      He comes 2x per month. I'm reading that bifen shouldn't be applied that often? Or is it a matter of concentration, the amount applied at any given time?

      Btw, I appreciate any feedback. That said, my goal is learn to do this service safely as well as effectively.

      Cheers, Ivan - Bugzilla Pest Control

      Hi,
      I was reading through your posts and saw you had mentioned "...Our full program = only 5 (regular) apps per year. (Not 6 or 7).

      We use slow release fert in every app. We also include as many as 7 micronutrients - depending on soil type.

      Our lawn program was originally developed by our land grant university, and we continue to follow their guidelines..."

      I just received my commercial applicator license and I was wondering if you would be willing to share those guidelines and the products you use and everything. I would sincerely appreciate it. I want the best program for my clients and you seem to be quite knowledgeable.

      Contact me at ShayneCarson@TopNotchServicesNM.com if you are willing to share your expertise... or message on here .. Thanks.

      Larry, I know you use the turfco 3000i for you lawn care apps. I am close to buying one and had a question for you since you seem to have ran these for years. I currently have a permagreen magnum and am having a issue with spray drift, which seems to cover me in spray. Does this machine have that problem for you? I am just tired of breathing in mist all day. If you could let me know I really would appreciate it. Thanks

      Hello,

      I am currently in the process of starting a mosquito management program for my company and am going to use the Mosquito Barrier after reading your success with it. Do you apply it every 3 weeks? when you do apply it do you blanket spray the whole property or do you just do the perimeter?

      Thanks!
