Used by professionals for more than a decade, Mosquito Briquettes have proven their value in destroying mosquitoes by killing the larvae before they mature into biting adult pests. Mosquito Briquettes, along with Dunks are the only sustained-release B.T.I. mosquito larvicide's available. The floating Briquettes formulation releases effective levels of B.T.I. at the waters surface for a period of 30 days or more. Mosquito Briquettes remain in the water column where mosquito larvae feed, to give you continuous kill.
Mosquito Briquettes release a constant, low dose of B.T.I. so early instars may survive temporarily. However, continuous ingestion of the active ingredient produces a chronic infection, which kills the larvae so you will not observe pupae and the adult mosquitoes will not emerge. Made with natural B.T.I., Mosquito Briquettes represent a major breakthrough for people and the environment when compared with the traditional toxic chemical approach to mosquito control.
B.T.I. is a bacterium that controls mosquitoes and black flies in their larval filter feeding stage of development. The larvae die after consuming the bacteria that causes a disease specific to them but are harmless to all other forms of wildlife.
Approved for Use in Canada.
Once a month float Briquettes in the Water Garden or anywhere water accumulates around your home. Each Briquette will effectively treat up to 100 square feet of surface water regardless of depth. Briquettes may be broken to treat small areas.
