I’d like some kind of organic mosquito control option. I see you have a bunch of sprays and foggers but anything organic?

In our MOSQUITO CONTROL ARTICLE, you’ll find we have several options listed that are Organic. These sprays don’t last as long as the more traditional products but they will work. Certified for Organic Gardening, products like the MOSQUITO AND TICK KILLER RTS do a good job in the yard and can be applied pretty much on any plant. Use as needed and in season this will probably be every 1-2 weeks.

If you want to treat some vegetables or other garden pest, get something like MULTI PURPOSE INSECT KILLER or the GARDEN DEFENSE WITH NEEM. These materials are OK for use on any garden plant and again, certified for Organic Gardens. Since many people don’t realize mosquitoes can breed on most any plant, they fail to treat all locations in the yard which in turn can lead to an ongoing infestation. Be sure to minimize moisture and treat all the shady protected areas if you want to knock out the local population.
