Q&A Home

Steve from Dallas, Texas writes,

I have a professional mosquito misting machine installed at my house. They use Riptide, but I see it on many online stores, they recommend Vector-Ban as a more affordable alternative. Which one should I use?


VECTOR-BAN Plus is for use in automatic misting systems, outdoor band applications, indoor applications, crack & crevice, ULV & space spray, and on listed animals and is a permethrin based product and has a bit of resiudal activity . Riptide ULV which is a pyrethrum based product that can be used in a mosquito misting machine with no residual properties only a contact kill. Both are great for erdicating mosquitoes in a misting system. Vector-Ban is a more affordable option as far as price point.
