Best Mosquito Repellent For Yards
Find the best mosquito repellent for yards & outdoor spaces
The best mosquito repellent insecticide spray to get rid of mosquitoes in your yard and outdoor spaces is Bifen IT (active ingredient: Bifenthrin). It has low toxicity, and as a bonus, it also helps reduce flea and tick populations.
Spray about 3 gallons of finished mix per 1000 square feet, concentrating on bushes, shrubs, and heavy vegetation. Repeat the application process about once a month to reduce the overall mosquito population in your area. Depending on your yard size, it is also typically beneficial to get your neighbors involved in the mosquito treatment process to increase the coverage area.
For increased protection, combine Pivot 10 (insect growth regulator) into the mixture. Pivot 10 helps further reduce the mosquito population by stopping the mosquito reproduction cycle.
