Is Riptide 5.0% Pyrethrin ULV EPA approved to spray around boat marinas?
We have a pest control company spray once a month and only kill spiders. We need something to kill mosquitoes and flying insects.
No. Riptide cannot be used around boat marinas. Riptide contains pyrethrins which is toxic to aquatic animals and cannot be used around the water. There is only one product on the market that can be used around bodies of water and that is Eco Exempt MC. Many boat marinas have started using this product in misting systems to keep the mosquitoes and gnats away. Please read through the Eco Exempt MC product label and supplemental label to see if this product will fit your needs.
