Always read label directions and precautions prior to use. Shake well before use and periodically during use. This product can be used indoors and outdoors. For optimal spraying, rotate the spray nozzle to point in the same direction as the red dot located on the top rim of the can. Point spray nozzle away from face and press button firmly to spray, holding the can upright.

Flying Insect Treatment: To kill flies, gnats, mosquitoes, moths and other flying insects, direct spray at flying insects and contact as many as possible. Spray in short 2 – 3 second bursts. For best results, spray flies when they are resting to get the best spray coverage possible. When using indoors, wipe up excess. Repeat as necessary. When using outdoors, spray breeding areas such as in and around garbage cans and compost piles, and areas where pests may be entering your home. Repeat as necessary.


Q: How long will it take for the fragrance from Maggie’s Farm indoor spray products to dissipate inside my home?

A. The fragrance comes from the natural plant oils used in the ingredients, which are inherently fragrant. The fragrance is not harmful and generally dissipates shortly after product use. However, the "longevity" of the fragrance is a function of several factors, including: how much product was used, where the product was used, if the product was applied to any absorbent surfaces (e.g., carpet, upholstery, etc.), the relative humidity in the area sprayed, the amount of air circulation in the area sprayed, etc.If you find that the fragrance is too strong and/or lingers too long, there are several things you can do to minimize it (Click Here)

Q. What are polyglycerol oleate and isopropyl myristate that are listed in the inert ingredient section of the product label?

A. These ingredients are used as emulsifiers to help the oil and water in the formula to mix together well when the can is shaken to get an even, uniform mixture that is needed for product performance.  Without these ingredients, the oil and water would remain separated (oil floats, water sinks), which compromises the effectiveness of the product.

These ingredients are on the US EPA Minimum Risk Pesticide Program approved list of ingredients. The Maggie’s Farm Flying Insect Killer is classified by the U.S. EPA as a minimum-risk pesticide.

Q: Is this ok to spray on my plants? 

A: Flying Insect Killer is not meant for use on plants. We do however carry a product called 3-in-1 Garden Spray that you can use. We suggest to always test in a small area before broad use and to read entire label of any product you chose to use.

Q: Is this spray also good for mosquitoes?

A: Yes, our Flying Insect Killer is a great mosquito killer as well as a versatile flying insect spray and bug killer spray. It can be used to kill almost any type of flying insect you may be dealing with.  If you have been searching for a more natural fly killer than you have found a great product that works.

Q. Does Maggie’s Farm Flying Insect Killer kill bees? Should I be worried I can harm beneficial insects?

A. Our botanical products will kill just about any insect if you spray enough of it on them directly. If you use Maggie’s Farm Flying Insect Killer (or any other of our botanical spray products) as directed, it will repel bees and other beneficial insects, rather than kill them with direct contact. In other words, don’t spray them directly, and they should be fine.

Best Spray on the Market!

We have had a big problem, particularly this summer, with horse flies eating us and our poor dogs up. We have tried several products and Maggie's Farm is the only thing that works and keeps the flies at bay after the fact. I would buy it by the case if I could!

Mosquito killer

Hello, Glad to reply to your email about your product. It's super great!. I first used it years ago and then after we moved could not find it. I then looked your product on line and ordered 8 cans. All I can say is "WOW!" It really works. We now live there are more woods and brush out in the country. I can use one can in a few minutes to completely surround our home and with in a little while, "like where did they all go?" Seriously thou, I can't say enough about your product. IT WORKS! AND it is NOT hazzardous to our dogs or plants. I have tried others from the other stores that sell similar products, but the bugs are back just after a few hours it seems. They work sort of okay if you know what I mean, but I think we are in the area that must be creating those blasted mosquitoes for the entire USA. Here is an example of a recent use of your product. Where we moved to, our very huge garage is piled up with excess furniture, boxes, you name it. I wanted to move everything out side to rearrange everything and I spray your product out side the garage and near the house. I had to work up until about 3:30 am. It was very dark out except for my garage lights that are very bright and that usually will attract them. Not that day or night. I worked without getting bit one time. Unbelievable! That was nice to be able to work out side where there is usually at least a million of them blood sucking little brats. OMG. Not one bothered me during the entire time I was outside at night. Mosquitos and me just do not get along. I hate them, they hate me. It's finally nice to give them a payback. YAA GO MAGGIES! I still have 4 cans yet but want to order another 20 pretty soon. Thank you for your great product that I just cant say enough about except that it has to be Heaven sent!

Works Great

Bought this on a whim from Walmart to deal with a house fly problem. It works great. I don't like to crush bugs so this is an excellent alternative for me. It takes care of the flies quickly and effectively and doesnt smell terrible like some other bug sprays.
