DIRECTIONS FOR USE
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.
A. In general, larger insects will take longer to kill versus smaller ones because the botanical oil actives need more time to penetrate the exoskeleton of the larger bugs to kill them. Flying insects can present an additional challenge given how quick they move, making it difficult to hit them with the amount of spray needed to take them down. If they get a good dosage of product sprayed on them, they will die. There is also a high likelihood that they will die shortly after they are sprayed too and fly away (after the botanical oils penetrate their exoskeleton).
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: I’m spraying this on my plants, is it 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.
I am so impressed with Maggie's Farm.
I have a thing about mosquitoes, and I'm thrilled that there is a product I can use around our dog. My son, too, although he is sixteen. I would have felt much better if I had Maggie's Farm products when he was just a toddler and young boy playing in our yard.
