Do you have a product you can use around koi ponds? The skeeters will be bad this year with all the rain!Jill
Good to hear from you. So that you know, the Mosquito that causes the most misery is called the ASIAN TIGER Mosquito. She does not lay her eggs in the standing water but in the grass. We have a fantastic product for helping put a end to this little rascal in the grassy areas around the pond. It will also work for other species of Mosquito. Obviously, there is no long term Magic Solution to permanently end the problem, however, CedarCide PCO Choice is the best thing available. Take a moment and watch the PCO Choice Video on our website. It will enlighten you on how easy it is to gain control of the areas mosquito’s like to harbor in. Don’t’ worry about any of the solution getting in the ponds. Especially around the edges where certain mosquito lay their eggs. I have never had a report of it killing fish of any kind, even though the whole pond was accidentally contaminated with the product. Be cautious and you will not experience any negative results. Please read on.
OUTSIDE TREATMENT RECOMMENDATION
CedarCide Industries formulates a product called PCO Choice. It is a concentrate composed of 85% modified cedar oil and 15% Ethyl Lactate. Cedar oil is a natural essential oil that provides a pheromone interruption agent that impairs the Mosquito’s mental capacity (fries their brain). When combined with Ethyl Lactate, a corn oil by-product, it becomes a bio solvent which is instrumental in triggering instant erosion and dehydration of the insects exoskeleton and subsequently, the egg and larvae. For every Mosquito you see there are 99 more in egg and larvae stage. Exposure to a water solution spiked with cedar oil and ethyl lactate will destroy that stage, breaking the egg layer cycle and eliminating the next generation of Mosquito. PCO Choice in combination with large amounts of water sprayed from a hose end applicator that is supplied with the product will be instrumental in the demise of numerous other non beneficial insects including but not limited to fleas, ticks, mites, mosquito’s, beetles, mole crickets, grubs, chinch bugs and many others. It has no effect on beneficial and pollinator insects such as butterflies or bee’s which are sight driven. It will not hurt any of the amphibians or lizard family but will deter snakes from the treated areas. I suggest you wash down the side of your structures working from the building outward. The first application is the most important and the objective is to make sure a liberal soak is accomplished to all areas including but not limited to the flower beds, shrubbery, grass and concrete areas and any standing water. Pour 4 ounces of the PCO concentrate into the cup of the hose end applicator provided with the product (cup has legend). Fill to the 26 Ounce line with tap water. Attach to the water hose, turn the lever to on and initiate spraying. Each cup of solution will dilute 20 gallons of water spray. When the cup is empty, repeat as often as necessary to complete the initial soaking. This treatment is very inexpensive and will resolve many other insect issues such as aphids and scale on plants, powdery mildew and all of the normal lawn fungal problems grassy areas experience. PCO Choice loves water so periodic rains will enhance it’s performance. Follow up applications should be conducted as required, depending on the local mosquito population. The aroma of Cedar will create a barrier of entry keeping mosquito’s from the treated area.
