    Looking for advice on the best/longest lasting residual insecticide for application to residential yards for mosquito control. This product needs to be able to be applied through a backpack mist blower. Looking for long lasting residual under normal environmental conditions.

    Had some success with Mosquito Barrier. It has been so dry down here that sometimes it is hard to tell if it's the spray or the drought. Check the website.

    We've test the product years ago and may be need to test it again. I am really looking for a chemical insecticide that has a proven record as an extended residual treatment. And the ability to apply it through a back pack mist blower is key.

    We mix Mosquito Barrier with LESCO's Crosscheck. So far, no complaints, but your tank will smell like garlic for weeks. LOL

    Thanks for the garlic suggestions. Any one with experience using a pesticide through a back pack mist blower for residual residential barrier treatment?

    Try Cyonara sold by Lesco. Same stuff as Syngenta's Demand CS. It has an odor, but provides a long residual with very low use rates. The max rate on turf and ornamental apps is 5 oz per 100 gal (0.05oz per gallon in low volume applicators). You can use it as a structural pest control product indoor and outdoor. It takes care of most other surface pests as well.

    Thanks for the info. I do actually have some samples here of Cyonara from Control Solutions. Haven't had a chance to try it yet. Didn't know if that was one of the best options or not.
