I have several customers who want me to spray for mosquito's. We've had tons of rain and the clients claim the mosquito's are nesting in the mulch. I can't see any standing water in the area. What's the best chemical to use ? I'm licensed so I can buy whatever. Thanks.<br>

try malathion in two applications one week apart. You won't kill them all - and tell them that up front- but you will provide relief

TURFER,

FOSTER IS RIGHT ON THE MONEY. THAT IS WHAT THE STATE PEOPLE SPRAY.

REPEATED APPS. IS A MUST.

REMEMBER TO SPRAY A 1.5 OZ. PER 1000 SQ FT.

THIS WILL TAKE CARE OF THE ADULTS BUT NOTHING FOR THE EGGS.

WISH YOU LUCK.

I JUST SPRAYED A LAWN TODAY FOR THEM

why not just turn back the tide? Unless you spray a large area, i.e., neighborhood you are just wasting the customers money and needlessly dumping pesticide into the environment.

A better idea would be to make sure birdbaths are flushed daily, no standing puddles and that goes for flower pots, tires, trash cans etc.

Bacillis Thurengensis will kill the eggs if standing water is unavoidable. Maybe even in the mulch?
