PBO-8 (piperonyl butoxide) is designed to be used with pyrethrum or permethrin products and can be used in a mosquito misting system. It has to be mixed with a permethrin or pyrethrum product and is useless if used by itself.
PBO is a synergist that makes the chemical it is mixed with more toxic. It can effectively make pyrethrum 2-3 times stronger and more lethal than by using pyrethrum alone or without it.
Most of the mosquito control products that are used in systems such as Riptide and Vector Ban Plus already contain PBO.
Hope this helps.
