Can I spray talstar or bifenthrin on my pool cage screen to prevent " no see ums" from getting in?
I was told to use permethrin but it doesn't seem to work...my pool is constantly full of them! I'm hoping the oil based bifenthrin is the answer.
The active ingredient Bifenthrin is labeled to help control Noseeums. You would want to treat the perimeter of the pool with Talstar P focusing on the bushes, trees, shrubs and ground cover surrounding the pool. Incorporating an Insect Growth Regulator such as Archer IGR will help break down the population because it keeps the insects from being able to reproduce. A great contact kill to use is Microcare Aerosol Spray to use around the entry points to the pool house (doors, eaves, joint areas against screen)
