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.
This stuff kills flying insects
I have an attached courtyard to my condo with doggie door. All these years I have had a bad fly problem no matter how I clean I kept it Additionally, I used many of "trap" products that are advertised. . Originally bought this for indoor use but flooring became very slippery. Outdoors it went. When it got warm enough for flys again this year ..... I didn't have any! After a while I even checked the internet to see if the fly population had disappeared. Obviously not. In thinking about it I realized that I have been regularly spraying the outside of the covered can I use. Also the inside after I change the plastic bag. Two or three times a week I give the interior a quick puff or two. Apparent prohibits the eggs, that have been laid in the poop, from hatching. I have two small dogs so I'm not changing the poop bag but every two weeks. So you can see this really, really works. I can now sit comfortably in my "No Fly Zone".
It works great. Nice and safe!!!
I love the effectiveness and smell. A natural spray to use in my barn.
