You do not need to treat turf grass for proper/effective control of mosquitos. Actually, you shouldn’t treat turf grass at all for any insect- except flea or tick infestations. This helps to protect our pollinators, however subtle it may help.

I would have no lawn if I didn't treat for insects. Grubs, webworms, armyworms, cinch bugs are rampant here.

I can believe it. The carrier would be to get more surface area with the product.

I don't apply it to the lawn either.
Do you see anything wrong though with using lambda-cyhalothrin for lawn insects (webworms, armyworms, cinch bugs, etc)? Same group as bifenthrin and seems to last way longer. Was hoping to group this with imidacloprid so as not to have bugs develop resistance.

@mjh648 this is outside my knowledge area. Maybe someone will answer, but we are approaching the time of year that the site slows down in active members.

And I would move if I couldn't treat the lawn for fire ants.

I don't know if it necessarily lasts longer if it is watered into the ground, but it is labeled for things.
