How Riptide ULV Works
Riptide Waterbased Pyrethrin ULV contains 5% pyrethrins, a natural active ingredient which is derived from chrysanthemum flowers. Pyrethrins attack an insect’s central nervous system, resulting in paralysis and eventual death. The high concentration of pyrethrins in Riptide provides incredibly rapid knockdown of target pests with no worry of resistance, making Riptide an excellent flushing agent to repel pests out of hiding places and away from areas such as dry goods storage areas. Pyrethrins attack target pests on contact, then decompose rapidly in the environment. This means Riptide is harsh on pests but extremely gentle around humans and mammals, allowing it to be approved for use in an extremely wide range of locations.
Riptide also contains Piperonly Butoxide, a chemical synergist designed to keep pyrethrins stable and allow for even quicker knockdown, meaning less active ingredient is needed to kill target pests. (Piperonyl butoxide has no insecticidal properties on its own.)
Riptide is most commonly applied using misting or fogging equipment, and insects sprayed directly are killed on contact. Riptide is a contact kill only; it does not have any residual effect after it is dry.

Target Uses of Riptide Insecticide
Riptide is one of the most popular choices for automatic misting systems to control Mosquitoes, Flies, etc. Riptide can be used indoors and outdoors and it will not leave an oily residue, as it does not contain any oil. Riptide kills biting insects including ticks, mosquitoes and flies. Riptide is also cost effective compared to other pyrethrin sprays.
Riptide can also be used as a ULV or space spray, contact spray, around home foundations, dried fruit product storage areas, stored food areas, on peanuts, nuts, beans, seeds in bulk, bags or other packaging, in federally inspected meat and poultry plants, stored grains, on animals, treatment of outdoor annoyance pests and more. **Please read product label for application instructions and safety precautions.**
Riptide is very effective for controlling flying and crawling insects including mosquitoes, biting flies, cockroaches, moths, beetles, ticks, weevils, mealworms, gnats, pillbugs, silverfish, spiders, wasps, waterbugs, yellow jackets, ants and more.
Riptide Application Instructions
Riptide is a water-based concentrate that can be used undiluted or diluted in a variety of equipment, but it is particularly designed for use in Ultra Low Volume (ULV) foggers and automatic misting systems. Application instructions vary depending on the target pest and area treated. See below for details. Always read the product label completely before use.
Yield varies greatly by use. Use one half gallon bottle with water in a 55 gallon drum for outdoor misting systems. At a rate of 1 fl. oz. undiluted per 1,000 cubic feet of space, each half gallon bottle treats approximately 64,000 cubic feet when fogging indoors.
Standard Application Dilution rates / Mixing Ratios for Riptide:
- Undiluted – Indoors - appropriate for many uses at a rate of ½ to 1 fl. oz. per 1,000 cubic feet of space – maximum strength and fastest knockdown
- Undiluted – Outdoors - use with a ULV spraying device at a rate of 5 fluid ounces per minute
- Diluted – Indoors – 1 part concentrate into 1 to 10 parts water; apply at the rate of 1 to 2 fluid ounces per 1,000 cubic feet of space
- 1 to 3 fl. oz./gal. of water – surface spray indoors; 1 gallon of finished solution per 750 square feet
- 2 fl. oz./gal. of water - outdoor applications around house foundations; control of pests on shrubs, fruit and shade trees
- On cattle and horses – 1 part concentrate with 49 parts water – mix well and apply a light mist
- On poultry – 1 part concentrate with 25 parts water – spray roosts, walls, nests or cages and birds with a fine mist
- Other animals – 2 fl. oz. or less per adult animal – varies with target pest
- Automatic ULV Spraying Systems – mix ½ gallon (64 fl. oz.) of concentrate in 55 gallons of water
Use in aerosol generators to kill exposed and accessible stages of many varieties of flies, moths, stored product pests, and crawling pests. Close room and shut off all air conditioning or ventilating equipment. Apply at the rate of ½ to 1 fluid ounce concentrate per 1,000 cubic feet of space. Direct spray towards ceiling and upper corners of room. Leave room closed for ½ hour and ventilate thoroughly before re-entry. See product label for specific pest and location applications.
For use in mechanical fogging or spraying equipment to control accessible stages of a variety of stored product pests, crawling pests, and flying insects. Close room and shut off all air conditioning or ventilating equipment. Dilute at the rate of 1 part concentrate into 1 to 10 parts water and mix well. Apply at the rate of 1 to 2 fluid ounces per 1,000 cubic feet of space, filling the room with mist. Vacate treated area and ventilate before re-entry. See Dilution Table for ULV Foggers on product label.
Federally Inspected Meat and Poultry Plants – Dilute 1 part concentrate with 4 parts water and use with a ULV spraying device at the rate of one fluid ounce per 1,000 cubic feet of room space. Use as a space spray only when plant is not in operation. Repeat as necessary but not more than once per day. Do not reapply within 1 day.
Surface Spray – To control accessible stages of cockroaches, silverfish, beetles, and crickets: Dilute 1 to 3 ounces of concentrate with one gallon of water, mix well and apply as a coarse wetting spray using approximately 1 gallon of spray mixture per 750 square feet of surface. To ensure maximum control of listed crawling insects, spray thoroughly into all cracks, molding, crevices, walls, floors and surfaces of bins, storage and handling areas.
Automatic ULV spraying systems – Mix ½ gallon (64 oz.) concentrate in 55 gallons of water to yield a solution of 0.046% Pyrethrins and 0.23% Piperonyl Butoxide. When filling tank, partially fill the system reservoir with water, add concentrate, and then fill the rest of the tank with water. Nozzles should be rated for a delivery rate not to exceed 1.25 fl. oz. of solution per minute, with one nozzle covering 100 square feet. For best performance, spray solution should be in the pH range of 5.5 to 7.0. Automatic systems must be programmed so as not to activate and/or release pesticides when people, pets, and food or feed are present.
Flying Insects – If possible, space spray application should be made in the evening or early morning when mosquitoes are typically most active. With a ULV spraying device, spray at a dosage rate of 5 fluid ounces of undiluted concentrate per minute.

- Do not apply space spray while food processing is underway
- Store automatic ULV system tanks out of direct sunlight so avoid high temperature degradation of the natural pyrethrins in Riptide
- Riptide will only control insects directly contacted by its spray solution, so it is recommended that it be used as part of an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program
- Carefully follow label instructions for safety precautions

Beat The Bugs BACK!
By Keith in Dania Beach, FL on 11/16/2010
I'm Blessed to live in South Florida where the weather has allowed me to transform my patio into my favorite room. Yep..On a canal, poolside with T.V.,bar, couches (you get the picture). Oh so inviting to everyone...including no-see-ums and veracious mosquitoes that attack in squadron formation. Solution? A misting system that I maintain/refill myself at a fraction...really..1/3..the cost of a commercial contractor...Who often uses the same spray. Riptide 5.0% works so well that I've nearly forgot that the bugs are around. Now if only they would come up with something to get rid of the Iguana's that eat my plants...

Great Product at a great price
By Mike in Atlanta, GA on 08/04/2010
This product contains 5% Pyethrin which is a higher concentration than the 3% you get with other products. That means you can use less and have the same results. A half-gallon of Riptide works the same as one gallon of other products. I saved about $100 by using domyownpestcontrol.com versus the product from my spray system manufacturer. Thank you!

Riptide 5.0% Pyrethrin
By David in Dallas, Texas on 07/14/2010
Excellent product. I have a 55 gal drum system with complete coverage throughout my property & this product eliminates the mosquitoes.
Riptide 5% gave me my yard back
By Steven in Houston, Texas on 12/28/2017
I have been using Riptide 5% Pyrethrin ULV in my mosquito misting system for years. It has completely eliminated the blood-hungry mosquitos in my Houston, TX yard. I have 4 cats and 2 dogs so I wanted to make sure they would not be harmed by the product. I couldn't be more satisfied. Before Riptide, my yard was a mosquito war zone. Do it yourself and save big bucks. The company I purchased my misting system from keeps asking if we need a refill. I wonder why. I save 40% by doing it myself, plus I know exactly what goes into my holding tank.
best price, fast service
By Larry in The Woodlands on 11/24/2017

By Dave in Mexico on 07/30/2017
I came across this product while I was looking for a replacement supply of Pyrthrin. We live in Mexico and the product we were using cost over twice as much for less strength. This one is perfect. Ok, DoMyOwn doesn't supply to Mexico but we manged to get around that. Even with the added extra costs involved in getting it down here it is still much much better than our original. Hopefully they will ship here in the future as there are quite a few people here with the same misting system.

Best Price-Really works
By Frank in Houston, Texas on 04/11/2017
At first i thought that mosquito misting systems were not really effective. I live in Houston, Texas and the mosquitos can be pretty agressive. We installed our system in the backyard around the pool and used Riptide 5% Pyrethrin ULV. We noticed that the mosquitos became almost non-existent in the backyard but the front yard had what seemed like hundreds. It was odd fighting through mosquitos to the front door while we were swimming mosquito free in the back yard. The systems work and Riptide 5% Pyrethrin is our go to and at DMOPC it is the best price.

Riptide 5.0% Pyrethrin ULV
By Ken in Georgetown, DE on 06/28/2016
Have used Riptide for years as a barn fly spray and as a bottle fly spray for the horses. We have not had a problem with flies in the barn or on the horses in the field. 2 ounces in a quart of water gives me lots of good coverage for considerably less than the big name brands. I use it on the horse's faces instead of fly masks and they stand quietly when it is put on. My barn system is on demand instead of a timer and I only mix 5 gallons at a time to keep it fresh. We have two horses and live in a barn/house combination. Riptide certainly makes life more enjoyable for the people and the horses. Do My Own Pest Control has given me excellent service.

QCan I use Riptide in a fogger?
ARiptide 5.0% Pyrethrin ULV is specifically formulated for use in foggers and misting systems. You can read more about how to properly use this product by reading the Riptide product label.
QWhat product do you recommend I use to control mosquitos and black fly? I live in the woods in Michigan.
What product do you recommend I use to control mosquitos and black fly. I live in the woods in Michigan. I use a Stihl SR420 Backpack Blower/Sprayer.
A For long lasting control of mosquitoes we recommend treating with Talstar P using a hand pump sprayer. Spray the underside of leaves of trees and bushes around your property and also treat door frames, window frames, and screens to stop the insects from coming indoors. Treat early morning or in the evening when the mosquitoes are most active for the best control. Riptide would only work well for quick control of flying insects but it does not offer a long lasting residual.

QWill pyrethrin kill bedbugs? What would you suggest?
APyrethrin products only kill bedbugs if you are able to spray the bug directly, and they have no residual control. There is no one product that is appropriate for every area in your home. We have put together Bedbug Kits that feature all of the different products that are required to eliminate bedbugs. Please take a few minutes to look through our bedbug kit page to find a kit that is the right size for your needs. We also recommend using mattress and box spring encasements to help eliminate a current infestation and make future bedbug inspection easier.
QAre you able to use Riptide in a hand pump container and at what ratio?
ARiptide is really meant to be used in fogging applications, but it can be used in a hand pump sprayer for some uses. You did not mention what you are spraying for or where you will be spraying, so we cannot tell you the proper usage rate you will need to use. You may be able to find the information you are seeking on the Riptide Product Label or you can respond to this email with the needed information. We also carry Pyganic Pro which is a 5% pyrethrin product that is actually formulated and labeled to be used in a hand pump sprayer and may be more what you are looking for.

QWhat product do you recommend for my hand-held propane fogger for mosquitoes, for longer lasting treatment than Riptide?
I use Riptide 5.0% Pyrethrin ULV in my misting system and it works great for mosquitos.
A Most misting/fogging concentrates on the market like Riptide 5.0% Pyrethrin ULV are contact kill insecticides and will not leave behind a residual to give a continuous kill. Fogging is mostly designed for the instant control and knock down of pests in the area and to kind of keep them away for a few hours. For continuous control you normally use products that are not applied with a fogger and that have a residual to give you control over several weeks as the mosquitoes land on the treated surfaces. We would suggest taking a look at our Mosquito Control Guide and clicking through the steps for treating and prevention and through the kits we offer to help get the best results.

QCan Riptide be used in a micro injector system such as the Actisol Compact?
Having good success with other products in my micro injector, but like the idea of the water based Riptide.
A We do not recommend treating with Riptide unless you are looking for a contact kill only. Per the product label it states the following: If used in a direct injection system, the pesticide container must be locked. Securely attach the end use label to the pesticide container in a weather protected area or plastic sleeve. Please let us know what you are treating for so that we can offer other recommendations.

QHow long does an application of Riptide last? Does it kill ticks?
A Riptide does not have a residual effect after it is dry. It also is applied using a misting system. Riptide is labeled to kill ticks, as well as various other flying insects. It is a contact kill only. An option that is longer lasting is the Tick Control Kit. It contains Cyzmic CS and Archer IGR. An IGR is an insect growth regulator. This will stop the ticks from reproducing. The mixing ratio is Archer IGR: 1 fl. oz. Cyzmic CS: .4oz into one gallon of water. Treatments can be done every 14 days until the ticks are eradicated. After that, for regular treatments, spraying every 30 days is enough.
