I’m new to trying to treat the yard for pests, but I thought I’d give it a shot. We have been seeing a number of ticks since the spring, and are anticipating gnats and mosquitos which are terrible in our yard. We’re located next to a vacant lot which has some water on it, and cannot do anything about that situation. As far as controlling the pests on our side, could someone offer some advice which is best to use to apply insecticide? A sprayer or backpack mister? If all I’m trying to treat are mosquitos and ticks is a backpack mister overkill vs using a hand pump sprayer? Thanks for your time.
