Product Review: Mosquito 86

I let my Dad try this out since even though I have bad mosquitoes, the mosquitoes are SICK where he lives... in the sandy dunes of Indiana, I wonder why they are worse there? Anyways, here is his review...



Awesome! That one word describes it. The words "fun", "efficient", "easy" and "deadly" also apply...Two weeks after 11-1/2 inches of rain in a 48 hour period and the mosquitoes are ferocious. In the photos I'm spraying what we call "mosquito alley"- our driveway down to the street, walking the dog, getting the mail , you name it- it's miserable walking through this area. I was watching the bugs dropping out of the sky as I sprayed them (imagine I'm wearing safety breathing equipment etc...) it really was a still afternoon around 5:00..couldn't wait till dusk. walked two circuits of yard spraying and not many bugs flying the second lap... I'm really impressed with easy install on a very old (1st model made?) Echo gas blower. We've tried everything: citronella, propane, hand held foggers and this seems to be the best yet (actually most of those other methods didn't work at all) I could literally see the leaves of shrubs"glisten" with the spray...can't wait till I go for the papers in the morning, that will be the test. But I've still got half a tank left for another good dousing tomorrow...





Geez, maybe I should have kept it for myself! Mosquito 86

P.s. Dad says no mosquitoes the day after- wish the same went for here...
