I HAVE A HUGE YARD IT LIKE 2 TO  3 ACRES. I NEED TO GET SOMETHING I CAN PUT ON MY SPRAYER AND SPRAY IT. MY TANK IS 25 GAL. I WILL BE SPRAYING MY MOTHERS YARD TO AND IT IS ALSO LARGE. I HAVE A POOL AND MY YARD HOLD WATER. WHAT CAN I GET EVEN IF I HAVE TO SPRAY EVER OTHER MOTH. I JUST HATE THE MOSQUITOS.

We have several concentrates that could work for your situation. Based on the size of the sprayer you have, I would say the ESFENVALERATE would be a good option. It only needs a little bit to go long way when treating the turf for  mosquitoes. We also have some other “spray” options that can be seen in our MOSQUITO CONTROL article on line. My only concern is that spraying such a large area will take some time. Furthermore, it will not be as efficient compared to fogging.

I strongly recommend you read through our article to see the other options. Once you learn about other treatment options – specifically fogging – I think you might consider getting a fogger to do the work. Fogging is very effective, much easier to do and uses a lot less chemical over time. I can treat my 1/2 acre yard in 5-10 minutes using our BACK PACK FOGGER. It’s very efficient and totally portable. And it saves on chemical usage as well. But it’s not the only fogger that can do the job; we have several featured in our MOSQUITO FOGGING section.

I want to do some mosquito spraying and was wondering what you’d recommend. It’s a small area, about 2500 square feet so I don’t think I need a lot of spray but something that will last more than a day wold be nice.

If you read through our Mosquito Control article you’ll see that we have products that can be sprayed as well as fogged in the yard. Generally spraying should be limited to small yards. We consider a yard smaller than 3000 sq/ft to be small so I’m pretty sure spraying would be an option for you. Most people should consider getting a fogger when yards are 5000 sq/ft or more but I think you’ll be able to get good results by spraying alone.

In our article you’ll see we have Esfenvalerate which can be applied in a Hose End Sprayer making it easy to apply and use throughout mosquito season. Add some Nylar to the mix if you want the treatments to last a little longer. Generally these treatments will last 1-2 weeks but with the Nylar, they could last a month or two. The key will be getting good coverage and treating once a week for 2-3 weeks to insure you break their cycle. Once this cycle is broken keeping them under control will require a lot less treating and should be manageable.
