How about Gnats?

I have been having a ton of trouble with gnats flying around my head when I walk outside. This may sound harsh - but, I want them dead. Will this product work?


While the Flies be Gone Fly Trap may attract some gnats through the smell, it is geared mostly to flies specifically.  A better option would be to spray down the foliage areas around your home -trees, bushes, flowers etc- with a residual insecticide like Bifen IT. Bifen is mixed at the rate of 1oz per gallon of water and will hold up to the outdoor elements roughly 30 days or so. Its safe to use on all plants other than edibles, and is also safe for sprays indoors for general pests around baseboards. It will do a great job of controlling gnats, mosquitoes, ants, spiders millipedes and a multitude of other insects on the property without leaving behind any visible residue, stain or odor.
