Hi, I have these little knats in my grass outside. When the grass is ruffled, they fly out of the grass. They also fly around in the air. I have a little dog and have to be very careful of which products to use. Do you have any recommendations? Thanks much.
The organic option would be to spray some BUG PATROL over the area. It’s compliant to be used for organic gardening and works on anything in the turf.
The stronger option would be the CYONARA RTS. It will no doubt work too but overall it will last a lot longer compared to the Bug Patrol. This way you won’t have to spray it as frequently. That being said, the gnats active right now are largely due to the warm air that’s been hanging around as the fall here in the U.S. has been slow to turn really cold and move to winter. Once it gets does, the gnats will slow down but getting them now before they’re gone due to winter will help keep them minimized for next year so it’s a great idea to treat now.
As for the pet; just keep him off the grass till treatments dry. He can then come back onto the area without undue harm or risk. View our safety video on any product page for more details on how to safely handle, apply and store our products but either of these are very safe to use according to label.
