Help me Please!
Somehow I ended up with an infestation in my apartment…and they’re the tiny, tiny ones that no one can see but me.
I used a fogger, but I swear they came back in even larger numbers (revenge for the homies?) I’m the only one who’s getting eaten, so no one believes me. I’m very allergic to them, and its absolutely killing me!
How do we get them out?
No seeums can be a problem both in and outside the home as explained in our NO SEEUM CONTROL ARTICLE. They typically target one person in any given area and for many reasons, these targets are oftentimes females. Foggers won’t prove effective for the reasons outlined in our article. To get control of the problem, it will have to be done by either identifying and treating their nest site or by treating the air space in which they’re flying on a regular basis.
At this point I’d recommend doing a thorough inspection of the living area to see if you have any place moist where they might be nesting. Typical nest sites include kitty litter, garbage pails, wet crawl spaces, potted plants, bath tubs or sink drains and basically any location where water or dampness is present. We have several treatment remedies for all such locations but the best one to use will vary from site to site. Let me know what you need to treat if you’d like us to make any further recommendation.
If you find them active in the air alone with no nest locations close by, consider getting a AEROSOL MACHINE and set it up with some PYRETHRIN AIR SPRAY. These devices are used by programming them to go off at specific times so you’ll have a new “treatment” done whenever you like. This way you won’t have to remember to spray; the automation process is highly effective and cans may last 1-2 months depending on the setting you employ.
If you prefer to treat manually, we have a FLY BOMB AEROSOL which is a can you’ll use like hair spray. Basically you’ll apply this as needed to the open air spaces in any room which has activity. It uses Pyrethrin as the active ingredient and will quickly kill off any flying pest in or around the home. Lastly, if you prefer something organic, go with the FLYING INSECT KILLER. This would be the safest option overall and though it will kill on contact, it won’t linger or provide any lasting residual. For this reason you’ll need to apply over and over to both establish and maintain control.
In the end, any of these options will be able to control your no seeum infestation. Choose any one of the products above that best fits what you’re likely to do within your level of comfort and once you start treating, you should be able to get immediate results. Just keep in mind it will require an ongoing routine if you don’t identify the nest site location.
