Are Talstar XTRA Granules effective on gnats in the yard?
There are a few ways to keep the number of gnats down. You can invest in a misting system that periodically sprays a pyrethrin insecticide such as Riptide in your yard. If you want to get something you can just spray, you can try Talstar P. Gnats that land on the treated areas will be eliminated. Talstar P will not repel the gnats from the area nor will it kill the gnats that do not land on the treated areas. The spray would be a better option than the granules because you could treat the non-edible foliage around the structure and yard. Please let us know if you need anything else.
