    Misting System Chemicals

    By Greg on 06/01/2011

    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.

    Pyranha 1-10 PX Permethrin Misting System Concentrate

    By Tim on 07/06/2012

    It works to get rid of mosquitoes and other biting insects...must do before sunrise early AM...and no wind...for it to be effective you need to create a low penetrating ground fog.

    This product is very good, with other products the mosquitoes were knocked out but not die. Pyranha 1-10 PX is really a killer and I order more!

    Mosquito Hell!

    By Stacy on 05/27/2014

    Verified Purchase

    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.

Q
How often do I need to apply Pyranha?

I live in Dallas and water the yard 2 to 3 times a week during summer months - does water/rain effect the product longevity?
A
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.

Q
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.
A
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.

Q
Can Pyranha 1-10PX be used in a propane fogger?
A
Pyranha should not be used in a propane or thermal fogger.  It is formulated for misting systems or cold foggers.  For propane or thermal foggers you should use Pyrocide 100

Q
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.
A
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.
