Default Tired of spraying Windex on Moscitos

The ammonia kills them, but I still have a real problem on my front and back porches.

Do these Flowtrons work?

Do these Flowtron Attractatants and light zappers work?

You must have something holding water or a wet area. I would work to eliminate all their possible reproducing areas and then pound it once with some wicked pesticide. I always believed the zappers brought them in.....Mount that thing away from the house!

Only because the echo thread was so funny.
Gotta love THT

Bifen IT
Do your research.
Follow the directions.
Do not spray flowers (save the bees)
Do not spray near bodies of water. (not good for aquatic life)

Setup a moderate cross breeze from a fan on your deck. Mosquitoes generally cannot fly in strong winds. I think they fly about 2mph so anything noticeably stronger than that keeps them off you.

We currently live in mangroves and had a nasty Asian Tiger problem in our former woods home. After trying just about everything, only DEET and fans worked long term. I am not a big fan of spraying DEET around so we chose fans and never looked back.
