Please work with your local county extension to obtain a specific identification of the insect and based on that, any possible control recommendations. If they suggest a chemical control, please be sure to read and follow all of the label instructions carefully.

You might want to consider just using an insect repellent on everyone's legs instead -- it would probably be easier and less expensive than treating an entire lawn. Enjoy the party!
