Spring Has Sprung. Time To Kill Some Bugs!!




What are y'alls sure fire choice of weapon for bug season? For my lawn I use Tal-Star PL granular, and around the foundation I use Davis Kill-A-Bug liquid in a sprayer. I mix it a little hot. Under my porch, carport, and patio its brake parts cleaner with a zippo, or a batminton racket.

Put down Talstar in your lawn and your good until end of summer/ early spring. That shite kills everything and puts a barrier up that most mosquitoes won't mess with.

Yep. I also spray talstar on vertical surfaces and bushes/shrubs every 3-4 weeks. Really keeps the mosquito population in check.

Yup. Can't go wrong with Telspar!!! The brake parts cleaner with a zippo is pure fun. Light the zippo, aim the brake parts cleaner at target, and flame throw away. Melts the wings off, and little ms bio gets to stomp them out.

Get some Taurus SC. Spray all areas where wasps, bees, hornets, carpenter bees, etc like to hang out.

You'll thank me later.

so the shite i get from lowes that hooks up to the hose is garbage huh?

Is Talstar a liquid that you spray?

do you need to buy a sprayer for it?

i have a dog.. how long before he can go in the yard? I assume its great for fleas

Buying 320z of Talspar plus the hose hookup part and a sprayer.. i need a new one anyways.

Live in Southdowns. How many uses can you get out of the 32oz bottle do you think?

The directions are like 1-2oz per gallon and one gallon per 1000 sq ft I believe.

re: Spring Has Sprung. Time To Kill Some Bugs!!
ordered 32oz

Comes in Tuesday

I intend to spray both the front and back yard with the hose setup I bought with the 32oz bottle

I am going to blast my fence in the back yard

Blast the side of the house

My house is off the ground so I am going to spray under the house and under my deck

hopefully I will have created a huge defensive bubble from everything
