Default Mosquito Remediation

The biting little assholes are fierce this year!

What is everyone using to help keep their population down?

I have about 2 Acres, but if I can get something that covers half of that i'll be happy.

We've already been diligent about eliminating any standing water etc.

Widom at TSC is what I use: https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/pr...secticide-1-qt

Keeps the assholes down near the house as I spray all around it.

Since nearest TSC to me is half an hour away (and I'm not home fro a week anyway)

I ordered a combo kit from doyourownpestcontrol.com

Has Bifen and Pivot10 which you mix together with water and spray.
Will have to report back in a week when i'm back home and have a chance to spray.

From what I have read online people have recommended to spray the Bifen/ wisdom around the perimeter of their house and property. I I would think since mosquitos fly you would have to treat the entire area not just the perimeter of the yard? Will it leach into my well water or kill lawn? I have about 2 acres of lawn on my property I want to be able to cut and play ball with my kids without getting eaten alive.
