No secrets here. I've had a few phone calls as did Glenn for some insight and its Just the response I guess I expected from YOU DD! Understand many of the products that might be used are off label and is or I should say warned not to openly recommend use. I can say you need identify the source of the breeding population..they need moisture/ mud to breed/populate....identify source try and eliminate that source and get youself a barrier put in place ....examples of a barrier could be spraying/fogging/misting. Maybe using shade cloth treating for midge fly to land on and kill. Most important step if your spraying .....it should be done sun upand sun down when midge are most active. Those just some of the things for prevention. MUD MUD MUD GET CONTROL OF IT WHETHER INSIDE YOUR PEN OR OUTSIDE PENS ....they need moist dirt to populate.

I absolutely recommend this seminar for everyone who might be affected by EHD/BT. Very good education....

We are in Tenn still traveling home..... check that Virginia .....out of our pockets and our family time. Now we need to prepare for our PA sale to be successful this week.



Hope to see ya there DD



Also for the record..... Dice is still behind the wheel.....NEW RECORD for him to drive....he must like driving my wifes minivan..lol

I don't see where my response was bad...i did not understand your response when you just said...."sure anytime".......it seemed like you did not want to say what you learned.......I certianly hope I can make the PA Sale as I do my best to support it when I can. No harm meant....just frustrated and trying to keep my deer alive from this awful disease......Thanks for the tips.....it is appreciated....

Guys, That looks like a great sprayer but it is still a sprayer. It looks like it is really getting alot of coverage but if spraying water with a tiny bit of pesticide is what you want then I guess this would be great, a fogger sends the pesticide into the air pure and NOT DILLUTED with water. Imagine a smoke filled wall of pure insecticide that will drift for several hundred yards or more and float in the air for an hour or better when the wind conditions are calm, it will cover everything that the air touches. I have used a sprayer just like the one on here mixing my pesticide in water, IT DIDN'T DO ANYTHING BUT PISS THE MIDGE OFF!!! I have been hit extremely hard the last 2 years in a row because of a stagnant pond behind my enclosure, before the fogging I had deer getting ehd daily and sometimes as many as 5 new ones a day and since I have been fogging the pens and most importantly the pond it has STOPPED COMPLETELY. Again I mix Tempo in with my permethrin PBO mix so it stick to all the plants it touches, this pesticide lasts for several days when they land on it and touch it, again it is NOT DILLUTED with water. You get soooo much more coverage out of a couple hundred $$$ worth of the pesticide then you do by mixing permethrin with water, as wayne states, you have to use the PBO mixed in to get the best results, these midges have a waxy covering that can keep the water mixed permethrin from being as effective. I'm gonna try and shoot a video of the fogger in action so everyone will be able to see first hand what we are talking about. AGAIN, GET RID OF THE BUG AND YOU WILL GET RID OF EHD!!! I also vaccinated and gave a booster 2 weeks after the first vaccination and then again as soon as the ehd started and it didn't seem to help at all, maybe it did and I would have had twice as many get it but I will not count on the vaccine to save any deer from now on, I will fog starting early in the summer and hopefully keep it under control from now on. Best of luck to all.
