Q&A Home

Dawn from Little Rock Ar writes,

I have a 55 gal drum misting system in my horse barn. What is the difference in Riptide, Sector, and Pyranha?

What is the difference in effectiveness as far as killing flies?


Pyranha 1-10 PX is a mosquito system that has the two active ingredient are permethrin and piperonyl butoxide. It should not be used in a propane or thermal fogger. There is no residual with this product.

Sector Mosquito Misting concentrate has the same active ingredients as Pyranha with the same amount of the active ingredient. It is a water based insecticide that can be used in automatic spraying systems, ULV foggers, mosquito misting systems, cattle barns, animal quarters, dairies, poultry houses, warehouses and more. Sector does have a residual effect.

Riptide is a water based misting concentrate with 5% pyrethrin. Riptide Waterbased Pyrethrin ULV is new technology that delivers effective control of a wide range of insects including mosquitoes, stored product pests, cockroaches, biting insects, crawling insects, flies and more without oil residues or oil-related issues. This product does not have any type of residual.


They will all be very effective in working to kill pests. If you are looking for a longer lasting product, we would recommend using Sector.
