hello, i was just re-searching and it looks like they are clover mights, they do not feed or harm pets or animals, they feed on clovers and grass "phew" (wipes sweat from forhead) im going to go and make sure, i still want to get rid of them though. THanks

Most posts seem to mention the sevin 5% dust, have also seen no problem on the eggs to 10 days. Haven't needed it yet so can't offer an opinion
