Can I spray Riptide 5.0% Pyrethrin ULV directly on cattle? Does it need to be diluted to do so?


As stated on the Riptide 5.0% Pyrethrin ULV product label: To protect beef and dairy cattle and horses from Horn Flies, House Flies, Mosquitoes and Gnats, dilute 1 part concentrate with 49 parts water, mix well and apply a light mist sufficient to wet the tips of the hair. To control Stable Flies, Horse Flies and Deer Flies on animals apply 2 fl. oz. of diluted product per adult animal in an amount sufficient to wet the hair but not to soak the hide. Repeat treatment once or twice daily or at intervals to give continued protection. To control the motile stages of Blood Sucking Lice on beef and dairy cattle and other listed animals, apply the spray to thoroughly wet the hair. Use 2 fl. oz. of diluted product or less per animal and repeat every 2 to 3 weeks as required.
