I am trying to find a spray for the woods behind my house to control the ticks,chiggers,gnats. You can't go in the backyard without getting attacked.
Transport Mikron Insecticide is labeled for many insects including ticks, chiggers, and gnats, but it can not be applied to lawns. It is applied as an exterior perimeter spray. Onslaught is a great product for chigger control. Treatments for chiggers should begin in April/May and could need to continue through the summer as new chiggers move into the area. Treating the entire lawn is of little benefit because chiggers avoid direct sunlight and normally will not infest areas that are mowed or otherwise well maintained. Focus treatment on the unkept areas of the lawn and lawn edge. You can also use Onslaught to do a barrier treatment around the outside of your home and in your crawl space to stop pests from moving indoors. It is labeled for ticks and many other pests.
