Skeeters and Flies
« on: August 21, 2021, 11:22:38 PM »
It is "monsoon" season where I live.  That means heavy rain although for the last couple of years it has been weekly rather than daily.  Nevertheless the moisture brings in mosquitoes and  a larger than normal dose of flies.  Last year I bought a propane fogger from Home Depot having grown tired of expensive cans of spray.   Tonight after dinner I walked into a small cloud of the little suckers when I went outside.  Dog into the house and I fogged the yard and patio. It works very well, giving me and the pooch several hours of bug free bliss on the patio.

The fogger I bought is branded Cutter but is identical to that branded Black Flag. Just thought I would share.

I don't think you will be disappointed. There are many variants on foggers and I reckon they all do a good job.

I grew up on SE Louisiana where a truck pulled a big fogger through the neighborhood on a regular basis. All the kids would ride behind it on their bikes. I'm glad now that my mom never let me join in :)

I lived in Baton Rouge for a year when I was 15 and those would come through my apartment complex regularly....  moved back to Missouri and I swear it was a full year before a tick or chigger bit me.
