Product Information

STRYKER Insecticide Concentrate is intended for use on ornamentals, greenhouse plants, stored products, livestock, in and around buildings and structures as well as modes of transport. When used alone, this concentrate can also be used as a clean-up or pre-harvest spray where other materials cannot be used because of residue restrictions. Contains pyrethrins, a botanical insecticide. When used in combination with other insecticides, STRYKER Insecticide Concentrate may be combined with other insecticides and acaricides where resistance may be a problem and to provide a flushing of insects from hiding and into contact with other spray residues for quicker and more complete kill.

    Using in B&G Aersol System

    By Curt on 08/15/2020

    Using Styrker in my B&G PAS and B&G one gallon sprayer. Since Stryker is an EC and using a strong concentration..Styrker is slaying the roaches and fleas with ease and is working well as a flushing agent using the PAS running roaches across my chemical treatment besides killing both fleas and roaches. If using Styrker as a straight up flea remediation along with Archer...I can assure my customers there will basically be no residual to be concerned with even though Archer will be retained. If a flea infestation is acute and residents are getting ate alive (metaphorically) and feel some hestitation about residuals..I mix Alpine WSG with Stryker and Archer...WOW! Stryker has the usual reeking smell of course...but evaporates and airs out nicely. Stryker is an everyday go to chemical for my pest control business. In fact it is a vital to me. Do follow the label instructions. Stryker is an insecticide and must be respected as such.

    Works Great

    By Timmy on 07/13/2017

    Definitely provides the quick knock down of spiders and other pests. I used this with Cyzmic CS and Nyguard IGR. This enhances the other product to nail the pests quickly. Whatever is surviving is barely making it and will suffer fatal death due to other poison mixture. Works great!!

At what rate should I use Stryker Multi-Use Insecticide when applied with Talstar P in a gas powered mist blower backpack sprayer?

I currently spray mosquitoes with Talstar P at 1 oz per gallon per 1000 sq ft. Looking for some thing to add that would have quick knock down, to go with the residual of Talstar P. I use a Stihl gas powered backpack sprayer.


You will mix 1 fl oz of Talstar P and 0.25-0.50 fl oz of Stryker Multi-Use Insecticide per gallon of water per 1,000 sq ft.
