Q. Do No See Ums get on your hair & scalp ?If so how long do they live & how do you get rid of them ?
A.   No See Ums usually infest areas with high levels of humidity. They also like to populate areas near bodies of water. No See Ums do not have a long life span but can populate an area quite rapidly. No See Ums also known as biting midges mostly lay their eggs in moist soil. Common breeding areas include edges of ponds, streams, muddy/swampy areas, and even water associated with air-conditioning units. Onslaught, Demand CS, and Temprid SC are all labeled for Midges (No See Ums). For immediate relief from their bites, it has been said applying baby oil on your skin will help lessen the bites.

Q. Getting Rid of No see ums indoors
I've had a no see ums indoor problem for a good while. I recently read a question posted by another customer pertaining to no see ums indoors, in particular, carpet areas. I live in a second story apartment so I'm not near soil or water. I want to know the best plan of attack to free my home from these devils. Willing to pay whatever at this point. P.S. I moved to Virgina from Florida and yes, I've been told that I probably don't have no see ums but trust me... I have them. They are not bed bugs.
A.   Onslaught is a great product for no see ums. It's a liquid concentrate that is diluted with water and sprayed onto surfaces. It is alright to use indoors as long as the treated area is left alone to dry completely.

Q. How can I get rid of no-see ums in my house?
For more than a month I have been sharing my house with no see ums. I live in Tucson, AZ. I have COPD and chronic kidney disease so I'm reluctant to use insecticides. I have been using the florescent Fly Web device (with the sticky inserts). Every afternoon II wear a hooded bee-keepers outfit. The exterminator reps say that the insects are reproducing inside my house. They say they are not abe to help me because any effective chemicals might harm me. How can I safely and effectively stop this situation?
A.   Unfortunately, the only option for you would be to continue to use the Fly Web Fly Light Trap since you are reluctant to use pesticides. We apologize that we were not able to better assist you. If you have any further questions or comments though, please feel free to contact us again.

Q. can they live in a bed?are they active at night?
It could be just me but I wake up in the middle of the night itching. I'm vacationing right on beach in Florida. I have about 30 bites so far.
A.   No See Ums could possibly bite and remain active during the night but they're mostly active during the day. However, since you are in Florida, it does make sense that you may dealing with No See Ums.

A.   We do not have any foggers that specifically state no-see-ums on the label. However, speckoz is one of our general pest control foggers. We also carry a product called Microcare that is an aerosol surface spray. Microcare will kill no-see-ums and can be used as a surface treatment.

we live on 5 acres with a 2 acre pond these no see ums come in mass quantities i can stand outside for 5 mins and be covered head to toe i need a way to get rid of all of these things.
A.   We do not have any organic products but if you are looking for a product that does not need to be diluted with water we would suggest using a granular. Unfortunately we do not carry a granular that specifically lists noseeums on its product label.
