Was wondering if this would work if I spray this around the perimeter of my place which is about 6 acres. I understand that I have to buy the gallon size. Please let me know.

I am looking for a portable thermal system that can be put on an ATV to cover 6 acres and use the Essentria IC3 exempt. Backpack seems cumbersome and not thermal. Any thoughts?

My neighbor has an ongoing issue of Mosquitoes that are thriving in his house. Can’t figure where they are coming from… thought it was from a plant, but the plant has been gone… and these little guys are eating me alive. Would Essentria work to get rid of these nasty Mosquitoes? If so, how would I be using it in a house… since they are flying around and not crawling on anything? This is getting so out of control… and extremely frustrating to say the least.

Can I spray this on pastures used for grazing and on grass that will be cut for hay?

This spray works as promoted. It is easy to use and a pleasant minty scent. I used it around our fish pond and pet areas with no ill effects. It has not stained any areas I sprayed and it is wonderful to be able to sit outside and not get bitten by anything. A must have for outdoor living!

Can I use this around my house where the chickens are “grazing” they are free range and I really have no control where on the 30 acres they decide to go but I would really like to spray my house for bugs.

We have a springtail issue mostly on areas where concrete meets our glass windows/walls and slider doors. They are outside on the concrete and then inside near the slider doors. Probably crawling in from cracks under our sliders as well as baseboards where our windows meet the ground (we have glass windows that go from top all the way to the floor). We would like to use a green product when possible. Would Essentria be ok to spray on the concrete? We are also thinking of using the Phantom spray as well. Do we need to use the Bifen granules? We don’t seem to see any springtails going from soil to concrete. We also live in a home that is on a concrete slab, so that may be the issue…..

Seems to work well.

I was wondering if this would work in my Stihl SR430 sprayer?

We have a local guy that claims his spray is FDA and HDA approved. Do you think this is similar to what he is using? His spray only treats for ticks and mosquitoes.

We have a horrible gnat issue in the summer in our pastures. They bother the horses when they are in the paddocks as well, but the pastures are almost unbearable at times. I read a previous comment that mentioned needing an aerosol machine for flying insects. Is this the case with gnats as well or can you spray the pasture/grass where they nest and alleviate some of the issue? Thanks-Dana

Need to control chiggers in my Florida back yard. I live in a canal neighborhood on the Intracoastal waterway, and the yard runs right up to the seawall. Oysters, crabs, fish, shrimp, and even the occasional manatee and dolphin can be just a couple of feet away from the grass.

Is this safe to apply, and, if so, what’s the best application method considering the critter and the environment?

If not, what, if anything, can you recommend?

I seem to have Springtails in my lettuce bed and stumbled across your product as a possible solution. I am wondering if it is safe to use around food? In addition we have a lot of gnats mosquitoes in our yard, and I am considering your product for controlling those as well. My question here is whether it has a negative impact on bees as well as birds? Thanks so much in advance for your feedback!

We have an outbreak of chiggers in the barn. Is this product able to get rid of them? And is it safe to spray on cut hay for horses?

I have installed 3 large raised beds for vegetables. In the soil mix i had delivered, at least found 1 mole crickets. Once I soak the dirt and spray this, can I plant my seeds and seedlings safely, or do I need to wait a certain amount of time?

I am having a heck of a time with black and white mosquitoes here in Florida 🙁 we have a large koi pond on a small lot which backs up to a preserve which we are not allowed to touch. Every night that I go to feed my koi I get Absolutely SWARMED I’m at a total loss! I hesitate to spray the yard due to my fishies but I’m so miserable! My yard is not large at all maybe a quarter acre max please advise as to how I should fix this!
