    Q
    Can you use Riptide 5.0% Pyrethrin ULV in a thermal fogger around horses?
    A

    Riptide is a water-based product and would not work in a propane or thermal fogger. You will need an oil based product to use in the propane fogger such as Shockwave or ULD BP-300. Be sure to read the product labels located in the product description pages at the links provided to make sure these products will fit your needs. You should not apply when pets/animals are present. Do not allow adults, children, or pets to enter the treated area at least 15 minutes, until vapors, mists, and aerosols have dispersed, and the treated area has been thoroughly ventilated.

    Q
    Is Riptide 5.0% Pyrethrin ULV organic and what is in it?
    A

    Riptide is not organic.  It is a water-based insecticide that contains 5% pyrethrins, a natural active ingredient which is derived from chrysanthemum flowers.  Riptide also contains 25% 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.

    Q
    Will Riptide 5.0% Pyrethrin ULV control mosquitoes in my yard?
    I don't want to buy an elaborate set up with timers. Maybe a hand held fogger or pump sprayer? I have bushes, a water fountain as well as a dog and cat. I thought riptide would be great but I guess it doesn't last?
    A

    Riptide 5.0% Pyrethrin ULV is a great choice for mosquto control. However, it does not leave any residual.  We recommed Talstar P.  It can be applied with a hand pump sprayer or a large mist blower. Talstar P does not provide an instant knockdown of pests, rather, pests pick up the residual active ingredient by contact. To get a faster initial knockdown when applying Talstar you can add a synergist like ExciteR or Exponent to kill insects on contact during application. You would want to keep pets out of the area while treating, but they can saftely retuen once the procts have completely dried.

  • Asked by Victim from Arroyo Grande, Ca.

    Q
    Can I use this to eradicate a yellow jacket hive in the ground? How?
    A

    Yes, the Riptide 5& Pyrethrin ULV is labeled to treat for Yellow Jackets. According to the product label, the aforementioned outdoor ground application will give temporary relief of annoyance from these pests in listed outdoor areas. Direct application into tall grass, shrubbery and around lawns where these pests may hover or rest. Apply while air is still.  Using Riptide with the Talstar P will give you a fast knockdown and then the 30 day residual.  Spray Talstar P and Riptide on trees, shrubs, bushes, and ground. You can also spray your lawn to help control the low flying yellow jackets that tend to land there. Talstar P will give a long lasting residual while the Riptide will give you a fast knockdown. You can use both products in the same area to get both a fast knock down and a long lasting residual. It is best to treat in the early morning or the late evening when these pests are most active. 

     The size of your yard, how you dilute the product, and how heavily you apply will affect how quickly you go through it.  There are many variables, but you can see use rates and application information on the product label.

    Q
    Can Riptide be mixed in a PAS with Arilon and NyGuard?
    A

    While the Riptide and NyGuard are liquid concentrates and should work just fine in an aerosol machine such as the PAS, we do not recommend using Arilon in one. Arilon is a water-dispersible granule and forms a suspension when diluted rather than a solution, so it may not dispense correctly in the PAS. It is generally best to use a liquid concentrate in aerosol machines. If you are wanting to use a non-repellent, then Phantom or Temprid FX would be other great options.

    Q
    Can I spray Riptide 5.0% Pyrethrin ULV directly on cattle? Does it need to be diluted to do so?
    A

    As stated on the Riptide 5.0% Pyrethrin ULV product label: To protect beef and dairy cattle and horses from Horn Flies, House Flies, Mosquitoes and Gnats, dilute 1 part concentrate with 49 parts water, mix well and apply a light mist sufficient to wet the tips of the hair. To control Stable Flies, Horse Flies and Deer Flies on animals apply 2 fl. oz. of diluted product per adult animal in an amount sufficient to wet the hair but not to soak the hide. Repeat treatment once or twice daily or at intervals to give continued protection. To control the motile stages of Blood Sucking Lice on beef and dairy cattle and other listed animals, apply the spray to thoroughly wet the hair. Use 2 fl. oz. of diluted product or less per animal and repeat every 2 to 3 weeks as required.

    Q
    Do I need to use another product in addition to Riptide to keep mosquitos, ticks, fleas etc. away?
    Does Riptide need to be reapplied every 22-30 days? I live near wetlands and trying to find what would be best to use. I don't mind buying more than one product. I used a company last year that came out 7 times and it was great. Looking to save money and do it on my own.
    A

    Riptide 5.0% Pyrethrin ULV can be used in mosquito misting systems or in backpack mist blowers for mosquito control.  There is no residual with this product, so as soon as it’s dry, it will no longer be active in killing.  If you’re looking for products that can provide up to a 30 day outdoor residual, we would recommend our Mosquito Control Kits.  The products in the kit are also effective on fleas, ticks, and numerous other common household and lawn pests.
