What is the best pesticide or combination to use in a misting system for noseeums?
I live in Hobe Sound, FL. Noseeums are out of control. I have 2 55 gal tanks and over 100 heads on my 1/2 acre. We are surrounded by mangroves.
Troika Misting Concentrate would be appropriate for use around or in animal quarters and for residential misting systems around structures when people and animals are not present, in accordance with the product label. If you have a system with nozzles where there may be drift into bodies of water or wetlands/mangroves, then you must use a product that is safe for both the misting system and the aquatic life. A good choice for this application, then, would be Essentria IC3, which can be used in misting systems or conventional sprayers and is safe around aquatic life.
