How to use:
This product works best in yards that contain plenty of vegetation such as hedges, trees, bushes and thick foliage which is able to be sprayed.
We call this harbourage area.
These are the places the mozzies and midgies like to hang out during the day out of the wind and & sun.
Vegetation isn’t the only shelter from sun and wind but it’s also a food source.
Mosquitoes and biting midge feed on leaves surfaces which provide them with a carbohydrate to fuel them in collecting blood to support their eggs.
No Mosquitoes – Biting Midge & Mosquito Barrier actually doesn’t repel mosquitoes or biting midge, it is in fact, a non-repellent insecticide which means you want the insect to land on the treated surface to be effective.
The product works by coating the surfaces on which mosquitoes and biting midge feed on which is the harbourage area.
When the insect comes into contact with the treated surface, it is quickly killed. This essentially turns all treated surfaces into 24 hours a day mozzie and biting midge zappers, intercepting them on way to you!
No Mosquitoes – Biting Midge and Mosquito Barrier mixes with water as the carrier solution and will not harm plants or grasses if applied as per label directions.
To Mix & Apply
Always follow the directions on the bottle and always wear suggested personal safety equipment.
When applying the treatment to vegetation, for best results, try to make sure you are covering both sides of the leaves.
The sprayer you use will depend on what you have on hand. A hand pump or knapsack type weed sprayer will usually do the job for small to medium-sized suburban yards.
For larger properties, a backpack mist blower or power sprayer might be more suitable to cover larger areas and amounts of vegetation.
The trick is to cover the surface to just before the point of runoff giving the solution the bast chance to stick and dry on the surface intended.
You can also use the mix to treat around building exteriors such as eaves, walls, fences, also garages, sheds, gazebos, under furniture and any other harbourage areas you can find.
The general rule is, the more vegetation you have around your property that is treated, the better the result will be.
Note: All protective equipment (PPE) listed on the label should be worn and complied with. The attached label and directions must be read in full prior to mixing and using this concentration.
Do Not mix stronger than the label states as this will have negative effects on the treatment and the environment.
Steps for an effective treatment:
Step One– Read thoroughly and always follow the APVMA approved label directions.
Step Two– Identify the areas you wish to protect e.g. Usable outdoor areas.
Step Three– Identify the harbourage areas which to treat.
Step Four– Treat all the harbourage areas that you have identified both in vegetation and around structures and let dry.
Professional Spray Tips:
- Do not wash structures, water or cut back any vegetation within 1 week of the treatment. Pruning and heavy watering may affect the longevity of protection. If watering is needed, attempt to water at the base of the plant or tree.
- If rain is predicted within 24 hours, do not treat it as this will affect the longevity and effectiveness of your treatment.
- Only spray in calm conditions – Do not spray in windy conditions to avoid spray drift– Spray can be blown off target and can also be shaken off leaves of vegetation before it gets time to dry which may have a negative effect for your treatment.
- Let your neighbours know you are spraying – chances are they have a biting insect issue too. If the neighbour treats and you treat around the same time, the zone of protection will be ultimately larger around your outdoor areas, making it even harder for mozzies and midgies to find you.
- Avoid spraying open flowers.
- Do not mix stronger than the label rate. Biting Midge and Mosquito Barrier is formulated to be a non-repellent insecticide, which means you want the insect to land on the treated surface. Applying at a stronger concentration is not recommended and will not result in more effective treatment.
- Lastly – follow the label directions and you will enjoy your yard free from mosquitoes and some relief from Biting Midge.
