We have a horse and a few cows. Our farm is in north Georgia and we’re having a mild winter. What would you recommend for controlling the Nats? We have 25 acres and they are the worst I have ever seen them in over 30 years.
When you combine the mild winter temps we’ve had this winter with lots of rain and moisture, the local nat population will explode at times. If you read through our NAT CONTROL article, you’ll learn there are usually some key locations where this pest will be nesting and really, you need to target these locations. I’m sure if you went through carefully and look, you’ll find there is only 1-2 acres of prime nat nest sites and these are what you should target.
So for treatments, I recommend fogging for nats because it’s fast, effective and very cost efficient. Based on the size of the area, you should get the BACK PACK FOGGER and some BIFEN. I use this combination to treat about 3/4 of an acre and it handles all my pest problems. We live on the Hootch and there are lots of mosquitoes, gnats and other biting pests. The Bifen will control all these pests and so many more. Plus it’s odorless, easy to mix and inexpensive.
