I would like to know if there is a difference between mosketos and musketos. Locally they call them musketos but when I was a kid we called mosketos. These are the little flying bugs that suck your blood.

Actually, I think you mean mosquitoes. Some people spell it mosquitos too but the proper spelling is with the “qu” and not the “k” as well as an “i” and not an “e”. I’m assuming you mean the one we feature in our MOSQUITO CONTROL article.

What would be the best product to spray mosquitoes that seem to be nesting in mulch? I have 6 flower beds around my house and like to water them 2-3 times a week. The other day I noticed when I got close to one it was alive with mosquitoes that seem to come up out of the pine straw mulch I use. When I moved some of it I could tell the ground was soaking wet and they seem to like the shade and moisture. I don’t want to spray anything that might hurt my impatience, daylilys or iris flowers which are so healthy this year. The problem is when I get close to them the mosquitoes attack!!!

Water is very much needed by mosquitoes and they can find it where many times people don’t realize it’s even present. One would think watering the flower bed would mean the soil gets wet and that all the water would soak down to the dirt making it impossible for insects like mosquitoes to use such areas for reproduction. In fact there are several species of mosquitoes that can live in mulch as explained in our MOSQUITO CONTROL ARTICLE. All it takes is a little for them to be attracted and they instinctively know if it’s moist enough for them to lay eggs or not. And even if the wet area dries, the eggs will simply lay dormant till they get enough moisture to complete their cycle at some point in the future so once such locations are discovered, they can become a regular mosquito factory if left untreated.

If the area is small, you could spray it with some CYONARA RTS for quick control. This ready-to-spray product is odorless and quite effective on mosquitoes. It covers a large area, is odorless and even labeled for use on vegetable gardens so it’s safe for your flowers too. Cyonara is ideal for small areas like flower beds and since it can be sprayed virtually anywhere, a good choice to make.

If you want to go completely organic, use the MOSQUITO KILLER RTS. It won’t be as long lasting as the Cyonara but it’s amongst the safest products we sell labeled for use on vegetable gardens with little to no long term residual. Both products are highly effective on mosquitoes and will quickly kill off any in the mulch following the treatment. With the Cyonara, you’ll find you an go a good 1-2 weeks without needing to spray again. With the Mosquito Killer expect to treat 2-3 times a week in season.

What do you have that I can use to control mosquitoes in my yard? We have a large deck we like to hang out on during the end of the day and lately the mosquitoes have been taking over. Within 3-4 minutes my wife gets bit then my daughter. They don’t seem to bother me for 15 minutes or so but this year even i have been attacked. I’ve got around 8,000 square ft of grass I keep cut low but I do water it all the time. I bet the water is attracting the mosquitoes but I don’t care. I just want something to spray.

Mosquitoes will definitely take advantage of yards that have moisture. This is especially true during the summer when it gets hot and dry. If it’s been dry and you’re watering the grass, chances are high there will be several types of bugs coming around looking to start living in your grass. The bottom line is that mosquitoes love moist, shady locations and most yards in urban America offer this exact environment.

To start, you should review our online MOSQUITO CONTROL ARTICLE which will explain all you need to know about mosquitoes. In the article you’ll learn about mosquito spray like CYONARA RTS and ESFENVALERATE. Both of these products are good for spraying and based on the size of your yard, you could conceivably use them efficiently. However, over time you may find the time and chemical used is bit more than you’d like. As a general rule, we feel one of our MOSQUITO FOGGERS are best suited for people trying to treat yards that are in excess of 5,000 sq/ft. It will cost more initialy but over time you’ll be saving on both chemical consumption and time needed to spray so we’re sure you’ll love using any one of the foggers we have listed on the site.
