Ripcord has 200g/Lcypermethrin, Ripcord Plus has 15g/Lcypermethrin (Plus what you may wonder)

Ripcord Plus is what M10 sell. Even the reduced concentrate potentially has restrictions "This product must be under the personal control of an APPROVED HANDLER when applied in a wide dispersive manner or used by a commercial contractor."

So Ripcord Plus from Mitre10 wouldn't really help me?

I used No Bugs Super by Kiwicare, available in most hardware stores. Cleared out spiders and long lasting, just respray each year.




 I'm supposed to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

I have used Ripcord and the No Bugs products. Both work equally as well. Yes you can buy it off the shelf, no there are no restrictions for domestic use, and if you take the usual precautions such as a face mask and ensuring skin if covered (like any other spray) then you should not have any worries.

Why not? The diluted strengths end up about the same, ripcord is 50ml per 10 litres water, ripcord plus 40ml per 1 litre.

Oops! that makes complete sense.. thanks for the eye opener.. the word 'weekened' just distracted me from actual diluted strengths!

To sum up, the weakened version means the concentrate is safer to handle. Higher strength concentration has greater issues when spilled.
