Best product to Eliminate Mosquitoes and Ticks

I have a client who wants her backyard sprayed for mosquitoes and ticks since they keep biting her dog, any ideas on what to use?

be careful. here in NC you need a different license other than turf and ornamental to spray for mosquitos. Think it's the public health or structural one.

think a lot of people use bifen. Which is ironic cause I can spray a bush with bifen for white flies, but not mosquitos?!?

It's bifenthrin

Then treat for ticks, mosquitos will be collateral damage.

Mosquito season is almost done up there, ticks will be the problem come fall.
