How PestXpert Pyrethrum PBO Concentrate Works

PestXpert Pyrethrum PBO Concentrate contains two active ingredients, pyrethrins and piperonyl butoxide (PBO). Pyrethrins target the nervous system of the pest, resulting in death. Sometimes, insects can build a resistance to pyrethrins. PBO, when added to pyrethrins, prevents this resistance for better results.

For use outdoors on trees, shrubs, flowers, and other foliage

Combine 0.5 to 1 fluid ounces (3-6 teaspoons) of PestXpert Pyrethrum PBO Concentrate per half-gallon of water in a hand pump sprayer. Do not apply more than 5 teaspoons of PestXpert Pyrethrum PBO Concentrate per 1,000 square feet. Do not spray plants to the point of runoff or dripping.

For use in greenhouses

Consult label for desired water to concentrate mix and spray foliage accordingly. Do not apply more than 10 times per season. Do not harvest until spray has dried.

For indoor/residential use

Consult label for water-solution mixture needed for your needs. Be sure to remove or cover any exposed food or water before spraying. Remove or cover any utensils, plates, or food preparation equipment before spraying. Wash utensils, plates, and food preparation equipment before using after application.

For use as livestock spray

Consult the product label. Choose the dilution of water needed for the pest affecting the livestock. Wet livestock and apply diluted solution to animal. Repeat treatment as needed (consult label). Do not apply more than once per day.

For use as poultry spray

Consult the product label. Choose the dilution of water needed for the pest you are trying to combat. Poultry does not need to be removed from housing when spraying solution. Be sure to spray poultry with a fine mist.

Storage and Disposal

Store in a cool, dry place. Use all materials in the container according to the label. If there is any leftover material that needs to be disposed of, contact your local pesticide disposal program (typically provided by the local government or city council) or waste disposal facility. DO NOT pour PestXpert Pyrethrum PBO Concentrate down the drain or sewer as the product is toxic to aquatic life.

    Homemade Horse and Dog Spray

    By Pam on 07/19/2018

    Shipped very fast. With this and permethrin, I can make 4 gallons of horse spray for what I was paying for 2 quarts of commercial brands. Same ingredients minus the sunscreen, which doesn't last anyway. Seems to last every bit as long on the horses as the expensive brand name spray. This serves as a dissolving and sticking agent with the permethrin and makes for a liquid that easily goes through a fine spray nozzle. Tick and flea repellent for dogs too. Read your commercial spray percentages and duplicate with an old measuring cup and add appropriate water to equal the right percentages. Just need a little math and a cheap mixing container with ounces indicated (like one for juices or water), and a spray bottle.

    Happy wife

    By James on 10/11/2019

    I first mixed a small batch, with small sponge on ice cream bar wood. I rubbed on a strip just under base cabinets next to floor. I then mixed larger batch with outdoor pump spray tank. Sprayed all around the house next to the base and all around in gravel and driveway. The effect was reasonably quick, two hours later hardly nothing. A week later just painted a line under cabinets under and behind the range. Now maybe 1 or 2 per week. got um under control.

Will PestXpert Pyrethrum PBO Plus Concentrate (60-6) kill bird mites?

PestXpert Pyrethrum PBO Plus Concentrate (60-6) can kill just about anything that is sprayed directly during application but does not specify mites inside homes on the label so we cannot recommend it for them.  

It is important to be absolutely sure you are actually dealing with bird mites. Have the suspected bird mite identified by a reputable source, such as your local cooperative extension office or a reputable pest control operator. Treatments will vary for different pests. Treatment for say bedbugs is much different than the treatment for bird mites.  If you do indeed have bird mites, you must first find the source of the infestation, usually a bird nest or a dead bird on or in the home. Removal of the infested nest or bird and a thorough cleanup is necessary.

For treatment in the home, we recommend you frequently vacuum all carpet and upholstery and dispose of the bag or vacuum contents in a sealed bag outdoors. Spray Sterifab on couches, chairs and other upholstered furniture where you may spend time resting. Use Cimexa in all cracks and crevices around the perimeter of the room. Apply a thin coat of MotherEarth dust to rugs and carpets. Rake (not sweep) nap back and forth, causing dust to enter rug or carpet. Let product sit overnight. Repeat application as necessary and vacuum every 3 - 4 days for effective control. Cimexadust does not have a fast knockdown, it can take several days for insects to die after they contact the dust.Onslaught can be used for a faster knockdown. Thoroughly apply as a fine particle broadcast spray using a hand pump sprayer to infested rugs and carpets and other cracks and crevices around the perimeter of each room. Put all clothes through the dryer on high heat to help kill mites and their eggs.We have had many customers use the above recommendations with great success. Most customers report that it can take several months to get rid of all of the mites. Finding and removing the source of the infestation is very important and is the key to getting rid of the mites for good.
