Riptide Pyrethrum Insecticide

Riptide Pyrethrum Insecticide: Great For Mosquito Misting Systems

If you’re looking for a safe, effective product, hey, Riptide is probably the product for you. It’s a wonderful product, contains 5% pyrethrin, which is a natural product, it comes from the chrysanthemum flower.


It’s a water-based material, comes in a half-gallon container, 64 ounce. It can be used for mosquito control, flies, cockroaches, it can be used both indoor and outdoor. Our primary use for it, though, however, is in misting machines for mosquito control outdoors. 


Well, if you’re like us, you enjoy spending time outdoors. Whether it be spending time around your swimming pool, picnicking, or just spending time on the patio, those are some wonderful times together around with your family.


Again, the Riptide is a wonderful product to use for mosquito control. Of course, we all know about those mosquitoes, those pesky, pesky mosquitoes when you’re getting bit late in the evening hours and what not and you’ve tried all types of products, aerosols and all of these different things to try to get rid of them.


A mosquito misting system is a wonderful piece of equipment. It’s out of sight, out of mind. We take Riptide and mix one-half gallon to a 55-gallon drum, which is your compartment that houses your material. Then you have this line that runs throughout your flowerbeds and up underneath the eves of your house with these misting systems, or nozzles, and that’s what produces when the system turns on, it produces just a kind of a mist, if you will, and controls all those mosquitoes and any other flying insect, for that matter.


It’s a great product to use. Like I said, it’s very safe, it comes from the chrysanthemum flower, the pyrethrin that’s in there, at a 5%. Again, it can be used for more than just mosquitoes, it can also be used indoors as well for cockroach control, for ants, and similar troublesome pests.

concentrate with 4 parts water and use with a ULV spraying device at the rate of 1 fl.
oz. of diluted product per 1,000 cubic feet of room space. Apply the spray into all cracks
and crevices in woodwork, walls, and floors, underneath sinks, behind pipes and in all
places that shelter insects. Contact as many insects as possible. Before use, exposed food
products and packaging materials must be covered or removed. After use, equipment and
utensils must be washed with an effective cleaning compound and rinsed with potable

not more than once per day. Do not reapply within 1 day.
