Johny B is so right, be proactive, do it every day morning and evening if you can and you will kill most of the midges that would kill your deer. With the fogger you use straight pesticide, It's a permethrin/PBO blend called Permonone. That's the best thing about fogging with a ULV fogger, you don't mix with water and dilute. I also mix the liquid form of Tempo which is a good safe insecticide that has a pretty long residual effect, safe enough to use in your house. It doesn't mix good by just adding, you have to use a drill with some sort of mixer to blend it together otherwise it's kinda like water mixing with oil. Do NOT use the powder form of Tempo, it will plug up the fogger. The way a fogger works, a midge can't fly thru it without getting a fatal hit, regular flys are tough to kill though. There is nothing worse then having deer just tipping over dead and the feeling of not being able to do much to help em. I can also attest to using Dexamethosone on the ones that got it, Last year after I started darting with DEX, I saved 8 out of 10 using the 3 MG per mil with a 3 cc dart and had good luck, this year I tried the compounded 24 MG per mil and didn't save any, lost all 3. Sheri, Glad to here your also having good results with your fogger!

Where do you order Permonone? I did a quick search online and didn't have much luck. Thanks

My friend down in AL makes them, I think he sells them for $80/ea plus shipping. Several people have tried making them for less, you can get pretty close to his cost. The one item that gets a little expensive is the rope used for each applicator. He lives right by a rope manufacture, so he can get it at wholesale prices. With the amount of time that you can get wrapped up in one of them I strongly suggest just buying them. If you want his contact info PM me and I will gladly give you his name and number.

We have had a frost at the farm. We learned last year that a single light frost will not end EHD! If you can see a midge fly you are still at risk. Stay vigilant. We are getting closer to the end of season!!

Well here in Montana we should be done as we have had freezing temps and even snow so those midges should be dead. All around me in the wild deer EHD has killed thousands of whitetail. Not much out of the DNR telling about it, guess they don't want people to know. I did get a guardian from Wayne and feel that that helped very much as I only lost six deer when wild deer are killed in the 95% range. We hunt along the river and in the past would see 200 head a day. We set up a trail camera in one of our old hot spots for a week and only one doe had her picture taken. The stench of dead deer was about the only thing you could smell. But lets worry about CWD cause that is the real killer. LOL
