    I got some of this stuff last year and tried it on my yard and one other paying customer. I seemed to have good results but last year was pretty dry down here so the mosquitoes were not as severe. I do list it as a service I provide. When you contact them, tell them you are in the business and they will give you a discounted price versus what is listed online.

    I've used it with mixed results.
    Hasn't dicouraged me though.
    It's still a great service to offer.
    Remember it also repels ticks as well.

    Sounds like an interesting product. I read some, but never saw the actual application rates. They say 4 ounces of product per gallon, but how much is that gallon supposed to cover? 100 sq. ft. 500, 1,000?

    Wondering if it could be applied effectively with a permagreen? If so it would be a quick and easy app to make for sure.

    All I can say is be prepared to gag when you spray it. The smell is awful but fades away in an hour or so.:dizzy:

    I sprayed it with a PG.
    Also, here in Michigan, we are required to be licensed to spread it. Of course here,...you can't spray water for the purpose of repelling anything for a customer without being licensed.
