Pyranha Bug Armor, previously known as Pyranha 1-10 PX is a mosquito misting system and ULV fogging concentrate with 10% Permethrin and 10% Piperonyl butoxide for more effective flying and crawling insect control. Pyranha 1-10 PX kills mosquitoes, cockroaches, wasps, moths, asian lady beetles, crickets, spiders and other small biting/flying insects. Bug Armor is water-based. Use 1 half gallon of solution per 55-gallon misting system.
Pyranha 1-10PX has a new name. It is now Pyranha Bug Armor - same product, same ingredients, just new name!
This is the first summer out of 5 that we have used something other than RipTide in our misting system: which was about 85-90% effective against Mosquitoes. Living in the woods near the river made it a great breading grounds for mosquitoes. I found Pyranha on your website with one positive review. We tried it and have found it to be 100% effective against mosquitoes. In fact we spend Memorial Day around our pool without a single complaint that someone got bite by a MOSQUITOE! I plan to reorder the rest of the summer for a mosquito free backyard.
I am using this in my horse barn with a fly system by Pyranha and it is doing the trick. We were covered with flies and now they are gone along with the other flying bugs !! YIPPIE And for less money !!
We are using this in our fogger and it doesn't have a harsh odor or smell. It kills instantly. It does harm some plants and leaves like a "burn"effect. It will discolor flowers. But in this case what's worse the bugs or clipping flowers. It seems though that it has to have instant contact in order to kill. I'm a first time user so I don't know what the long term affects are.
Can Pyranha Misting Concentrate be used in a backpack fogger?
Yes, you could use Pyranha 1-10 PX Permethrin Misting Concentrate in a backpack fogger. Although it is mostly used in a misting system you can apply it from any type of equipment that will make a mist or fog.
Do I need to adjust the pH of the water with Pyranha 1-10x like you must with Riptide?
Riptide recommends pH adjustment to 5.5 to 7.0 and I could not find any info on the Pyranha product about this to maintain product viability.
There are certain products that are susceptible to problems with high pH balances in water. If a product label does not specifically address this issue it is because this particular product does not usually have any issues with pH.
Can I use Pyranha 1-10 PX to apply directly to horses as a repellent?
My horses usually only spend 1/3 of their day in their stalls with my misters. It would be great to use the same product for the misters as well as a direct apply repellant when they get turned out. Thanks.
According to page 4 of the Pyranha 1-10 PX Permethrin product label this product can safely be used directly on your horses as long as you follow the usage instructions.
I live in Dallas and water the yard 2 to 3 times a week during summer months - does water/rain effect the product longevity?
Most folks use this product in their mosquito misting systems and they set the system to go off once a night when the mosquitoes are most active. The product really won't last more than 24 hours when used in this manner.
