I am interested in the Fogmaster 6309 Fogger. I have a very bad gnat/mosquito problem. I have a very, very large area of mulch that they are probably nesting in. Is the fogmaster 6309 right for me and do you sell the insecticide (pyrethene??) for it. Also, is it legal in NJ.

Thanks, T.

The FM6309 is one of my favorite foggers for yards 1/2 acre or less. It’s fast, powerful and ideally suited for most any pest control need involving a liquid application. You’ll see we feature it in our MOSQUITO CONTROL ARTICLE as well and it’s one of our biggest sellers.

The chemicals you should use with the fogger can be seen on our MOSQUITO PRODUCTS page and since we’d be shipping to NJ, I recommend the EXCITER and the PERMETHRIN 10. These will work fine and treatments should last 10-14 days for sure.

I’m looking for something I can spray around a damp and shady area on the back side of my house that’s non-toxic but will kill mosquitoes. They get really bad where we like to sit and the citronella candles don’t seem to do much anymore. Is there anything I can use that won’t poison my yard or family?

First of all, any of the products we have listed in our MOSQUITO CONTROL article won’t poison people or the yard if used correctly. There is no need to over apply them and since mosquitoes are easy to kill, little product is needed so you can get control without putting undue risk to anyone or animal in the area.

Secondly, in this same article you’ll see we have ECO IC listed which is an all natural, food derivative concentrate that can be sprayed on anything and providing good control for various pests including mosquitoes. You can apply it as a liquid using a SPRAYER or one of the FOGGERS listed in the article. For small areas, spraying it once a week will keep them under control. Fogging is better suited if you have 2500 sq/ft or more and want to use less chemical and time over the course of a summer when treating a lot.
