How to Pick the Best Flying Insect Control Product
- Identify your target pest using the accompanying chart from Pest West.
- Some flying insects can be attacked at the sources where they breed. Drain Flies, for example, breed in scummy drains, cracks and crevices. Catching individual drain flies with sticky fly traps works, but a product such as Invade Hot Spot is required to solve the fly problem at the source.
Starting at: $18.75Many customers use Bifen IT for mosquito control in their backyards. Mosquitoes feed on plant juices. You find them on the leaves of plants, bushes, and trees. Try to spray the underside of the leaves. Remember that Bifen IT is non-selective and will kill the good guys such as bees and butterflies so avoid spraying any flowering parts because that is where the bees go. We need to save the bees!!! The 3/4 gal size is the best value, but consider the one gal container because it has a tip and measurement device. The tip and measure makes life easier when mixing. Learn More
