Dual-action lawn insect killer plus fungus control takes the guesswork out of yardwork

ST. LOUIS, May 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In the battle against indoor/outdoor pests, it's every person for themselves  – and do-it-yourself homeowners trust Black Flag® pest solutions to get the job done right and take no prisoners. Now Black Flag® brand is taking that down-and-dirty, no-nonsense attitude to the backyard with its new lawn insect killers plus added fungus control – powerful formulas designed to take the guesswork out of yardwork.

Your lawn has many enemies. But you only need one ally: Black Flag® Lawn Insect Killer Plus Fungus Control products combine the quick, decisive insect control that consumers trust from Black Flag® products with lawn fungus control to give homeowners the upper hand against brown spots in their yards. It's clear to consumers when they have lawn damage, but they often don't know the cause. Now they can stop guessing and start treating: Black Flag® Extreme Lawn Insect Killer Plus Fungus Control products are packed with a powerful punch to both make short work of harmful lawn bugs – like ants, armyworms, crickets and fleas – and prevent and control major lawn diseases as listed on the label, including brown patch, dollar spot and powdery mildew.

The new lawn insect/disease solutions are the latest in a long line of game-changing innovations from the Black Flag® brand, which has helped homeowners defend their domains against invading bugs for decades.

"The best defense against home pests is a good offense, and we're constantly looking for new ways to give consumers the upper hand," said John Pailthorp, Vice President of Marketing for the Spectrum Brands – Pet, Home & Garden Division, maker of Black Flag® products.
