Aquabac Mosquito Control
STOP WEST NILE VIRUS!
AQUABAC® Bacillus thuringiensis var. israelensis (Bti)
Natural & Effective Control For Mosquitoes and Black Flies!
Bti is a bacteria that specifically targets mosquitoes and black flies in their larval stage, but is harmless to beneficial insects, wildlife, humans, pets or livestock.
How Aquabac Works:
Bti is eaten by the mosquito larva and becomes highly toxic to the larva killing them within minutes after ingestion. Since the bacteria are harmless to other mosquito and black fly larva predators, these predators continue to feed on the larva and work in concert with Bti to keep the larva population in check. This means use of Bti does not cause collateral damage to high use areas and leaves no chemical residue to contaminate the environment.
Bti can be used in any habitat that supports mosquito or black fly larvae including any standing water such as tree wells, tires, downspout puddles, rain barrels, bird baths, unused swimming pools and more!

2 good pinches treats an area 3ft x 3ft. Double the dose for murky water.
500g container treats 1,000 m2of water surface or (10,000 ft2).
Treatment can start early in spring. Apply evenly on the water surface.
Takes 24 hours for maximum effect on larvae. If necessary re-apply every 7-10 days. Repeat after heavy rain fall.
