Kill Mosquitoes with Mosquito Dunks® or Bits®
These are a biological safe method that kills mosquito larvae in your water garden pool, rain barrels, bird baths, or anywhere water collects for a period of time. They are safe to use if you have Daphnia .
For longer residual control use Mosquito Dunks®.
Where should Mosquito Dunks® be used? Just float a biodegradable Mosquito Dunk® in water troughs, koi ponds, birdbaths, rain barrels or any place where water collectsand remains for periods of time. When female mosquitoes laytheir eggs in standing water treated with a Mosquito Dunk®, thelarvae will hatch and begin to eat the B.t.i. The B.t.i. will kill themosquito larvae before they can grow up to become biting anddisease-spreading adults.
This is approved for Organic Production and Gardening.
It kills the mosquitoes that may transmit West Nile Virus, Encephalitis, Dengue Hemorhagic Fever, and Malaria. There are two forms of this biological mosquito control – Mosquito Dunks® or Mosquito Bits®.
Float the dunk on the surface of the water. One dunk is effective for 100 sq ft surface for a month. Tricker’s has tested for other organisms in the pond and have found that Daphnia is safe.
Mosquito Bits® are granulated and are simply spread over the surface of the water. This will settle in the water and be eaten by mosquito larvae. The Bits® give a quick kill within 24 hours. Sprinkle one teaspoon per 75 square feet . Apply every 7-14 day intervals.
As the Dunks® slowly dissolves, it releases a bacterium which is toxic to all species of mosquito larvae. Mosquito Bits® are a granule that contains the same active ingredient found in the Dunks®, but unlike the Dunks® the Bits® release the larvicide immediately. The active ingredient in Mosquito Dunks® is Bacillus thuringiensis subspecies israelensis which is a bacterium that is deadly to mosquito larvae and harmless to other living organisms.
