What is the difference between water based pesticide and oil based pesticide?
What is the diff between oil and water based pesticide in terms of effectiveness and long lasting residue?
Water based insecticides are the most commonly used insecticides today because they have low or no odor and they usually do not stain. Oil based insecticides are used in cases where the product may need to stay wetter for a longer period of time and they are usually used outdoors to avoid odor issues and staining. Oil based insecticides usually need to be diluted with oil or you must use an additive such as adjuvant to dilute the product in water (always read the product label for proper mixing instructions). However, even water based insecticides today can last up to 90 days and have long residuals.
Will Pyrocide 100 get rid of German roaches? Can I purchase it as a consumer and not a professional?
Pyrocide 100 will kill roaches and is a very good product. However, it is a fogging solution and must be applied from a fogger. Anytime you fog, you should wear proper safety equipment. This product is also a contact kill, meaning it will kill whatever roaches it touches at the time it is fogged, but it does not leave a residual. You should always apply a residual roach control product or roach bait after you have fogged initially since some roaches may be hiding in the walls or other areas that the fog cannot get to when you apply it. This product is also perfectly fine for consumers to purchase it and apply it as long as you are using it for your own property.
Can it be used in a fly spray system in a barn? Will it hurt horses or human eyes and lungs?
Pyrocide 100 is an oil based ULV solution. It can be applied in a fly spray system. It is labeled to apply to horses. However, if you are looking for a water based ULV solution which we do recommend for use around livestock, you should use Riptide which is made by the same company that makes the Pyrocide 100.
How long after application is Pyrocide 100 effective?
Is Pyrocide 100 similar to products used by professional exterminators for control of household small black ants and Hobo spiders?
Pyrocide 100 is a fogging solution and like all other fogging solutions it is a contact kill. This means it does not leave a residual and once it is dry its effectiveness is over. It will only kill what is out in the open when it is applied. If you want to use the most popular product used by professional companies, then you should look at Talstar P. It lasts 60 - 90 days and is labeled for over 80 different insects including ants and spiders, and is the most widely used insecticide by professional companies.
