My home is located about 200-300 yards west of a swamp. We have noseeums starting in mid-late April and they stay around for about 1 month and then disappear. You listed so many products. Which one do you think would work best for me and my situation. I have about 2 acres with a small pond. I am afraid treating the yard will be a waste of time with a swamp so close by. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Noseeums can be a pest throughout all warm, summer months so you’re lucky they only seem to be active for a month. I wonder if more moisture in the swamp wouldn’t allow them to prosper even longer but there could be other factors at play. I would say you’re pretty lucky since most of our customers with them have a never ending situation.
Regardless of how long they’re active, you can most certainly control their presence on your property with a treatment schedule that will have to be determined only after you initiate a program for a month or so. I’m thinking you should start with weekly treatments for the first month and then drop back to once every 2 weeks thereafter to see if that will be enough treating to handle the problem.
Based on the amount of area you cited above, one of our FOGGING MACHINES are clearly what you need to be using. I would say the FM6309 or FM6208 would be the smallest ones to consider; the BACK PACK FOGGER would be ideal since there would be no need for an electric power cord. The best product to use for the fogging would be the BIFEN alone. Since the swamp land would be where they would most likely be reproducing, I don’t think you’ll gain much by adding NYLAR to the tank mix unless you suspect you have some nesting up above the water line. Since Nylar does work on mosquitoes and other pests, it might be considered but again, the Bifen should be able to handle the problem just fine with no other assistance needed.
