We are buying a 10.69 acre farmstead about half of which will be organically farmed. There is a huge mosquito problem. There are a lot of trees especially surrounding the entire property but no water feature. We will need to mow down the grass and tall weeds on the property, which will help. We may also apply organic citric acid for the weeds. I have also read that citric acid helps with mosquito larvae. I am guessing the mosquitoes will still be a big problem, though. We need a solution for the mosquitoes that is organic and nontoxic, effective, and also cost effective given the larger size of the property. Please, let me know if your product would be an option for us. If it is, could you recommend how to apply it and approximate cost for our needs.
We have several options that can be used for your problem. For starters, I suggest you read through our MOSQUITO CONTROL ARTICLE. Though this article talks mostly about traditional products, it does a good job of explaining the biology of mosquitoes which will enable you to reduce local populations through simple practices. The article also goes over all the equipment options available so you should be able to identify which fogger we present that you think you’ll want to use and this is a big part of the decision making process.
As for actives; the ECO IC or the ECO MISTING CONCENTRATE are essentially the same and both are very effective. But we also have products like the MOSQUITO KILLER SPRAY RTS and the MOSQUITO REPELLENT SPRAY which might be handy for some areas. For now, I think it would be best to learn about these various products, the different fogging equipment we offer and the biology of mosquitoes. Once you get a handle on this data, give us a call toll free at 1-800-877-7290 and ask for Chad or Mike. They’ll be able to further elaborate and offer specific answers for your situation so you can make some final decisions. I’m sure we have what you need and it’s really just a matter of figuring out how you want to apply the product that will dictate which to use.
