Is the Bonide Mosquito Beater Yard Fog effective on chiggers?
Seems chiggers jump on me as I simply walk on my lawn grass. No weeds or bushes are in play. If this is not best product, what do you recommend for country lawn in Deltaville, Virginia? Currently have approximately 30 chigger bites :(( Do you have a product (liquid concentrate?) that can be applied using a handheld air pump pressurized sprayer?
Bonide Mosquito Beater Yard Fog
is not labeled
for chiggers. 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 unkempt 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.
