Noseeum bug home infestation

Asked January 17, 2020, 12:19 AM EST

Power cleaning my gutters last fall resulted in a massive Noseeum bug infestation inside my home ... all rooms, furniture, closets, clothes, bedding, heating vents, and garage ... All commercial products I’ve used are repellents ... What commercial concentrate can I purchase that will kill the Noseeum bug and prevent its breeding?

Thank you

Oregon integrated pest management insect issues insect identification

It is always important to confirm the identification of an insect pest prior to making any pest recommendations, especially if the problem is widespread in your home. If you can, it would be best to bring a sample of the insects into your local county Extension office for them to identify. If this is not possible perhaps you could send a photo and a description of the pest and where specifically you are finding them in your home.
