What is Malathion and Can it be Used to Get Rid of Nuisance Insects?


Nuisance Insects

Farmers and landscapers are in a constant battle with nuisance insects, always looking for ways to eradicate them without having to coat their plants in undue amounts of harmful insecticides. Fortunately, there is an extremely low-risk way to get rid of nuisance insects called Malathion. 

What is Malathion?

Malathion is an insecticide that has become widely used thanks to both its effectiveness and its extremely low toxicity to human beings. Farmers use it to keep their crops from being devoured while landscapers spray it on their lawns, golf courses, and sports fields to kill off mosquitoes, ticks, chiggers, and other nuisance insects. It is the most common organophosphate insecticide used in the U.S. today.

How to Eradicate Nuisance Insects with Malathion 

The best forms of Malathion are formulated for landscaping professionals and are not readily available for general use. However, W.P. Law, Inc carries special formulations of Malathion that can be safely used by the general public. It is one of many insecticides that we carry.
