Take a diabetic with me. Less bites that way.

Shoot fireworks.

On a serious note remove things that hold water is the biggest thing. You can include plants that repel. Used Coffee grounds in areas where water stands in yard.

Coffee grounds , I just learned something new. Lord knows we’ve got plenty around here. What do you do to make use of them.

Just spread it on the ground where water puddles in the yard. In flower beds, under deck, etc. Might not be a good idea to spread in high traffic areas.

Talstar Pro and spray it anywhere it’s damp. You can buy it off of EBay.

I spray once a month in the summer in my back yard. If it’s an especially rainy summer, maybe every 2-3 weeks to keep the mosquitos at bay. I back up to a swamp and my back yard is damp and wooded. Great stuff. Haven’t found anything better.

Bifen or Talstar as said above. They are generally sprayed with a standard backpack sprayer

Which is the best buy? Bifen or Talstar and where is the best place to buy them?
Talstar is a brand.
Bifenthrin is a chemical name.

Any generic will work.
Like RoundUp vs generic glyphosate.


Tractor Supply, Southern States.
Lots of online dealers...domyownpestcontrol.com

Buy the concentrate and a hose end sprayer and coat a circle 30 ft from your house.

I spray my 2 acre yard with Bifen I/T using an ATV boomless sprayer. I still get mosquitoes but it helps a lot. It gets rid of fire ants too.

^^ it might be how and when you are spraying.
I try to spray when the targeted species is most active at my place.
