Does Permethrin kill yellow flies
I've been bitten 3 times and have had a bad reaction...to yellow flies.
Yellow flies are a relatively new species so there is not anything labeled for it just yet and no research really as to what works for them. Permethrin SFR may help to eliminate them as it labeled for mosquioes and flies but it is not labeled for mosquitoes around the yard. Something like Talstar P could be used and may offer some relief. There is just not enough information available about this new pest.
