Is anyone else plagued by these horrid blood-suckers? They are here in clouds, smothering my cats and swarming me every morning and evening I go outside. Oh, yeah, and in between, too. I don't think they ever sleep. Oddly, they seem to bother the dogs that much. I have spray I can use on the dogs, but so much stuff is toxic to cats, I'm wary of most products.
This is an irrigated yard, but we make sure every possible container is emptied after the water is absorbed. I don't use saucers and all pet water dishes are rinsed and filled fresh every day. We didn't have a mosquito problem for years after we moved here ('86), but now we might as well be in freekin' Florida. Has anyone tried **any** product that works in the yard, on you, on pets?
