AQUABAC 200G larvicide contains Bacillus thuringiensis var. israelensis (Bti) - the best and most effective natural control for Mosquitoes, Fungus Gnats and Black Flies! Bti is a bacteria that specifically targets mosquitoes, fungus gnats 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 pest insect larva, killing them within 4-24 hours after ingestion. Since the bacteria are harmless to beneficial insects, the EPA has categorized the risk to non-target organisms as minimal to non-existent. 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 applied to almost any aquatic habitat without environmental impact concerns. It is important to note that AQUABAC 200G should not be used directly in water sources for human consumption.
How to Apply:
AQUABAC 200G Bti can be applied by hand broadcast or a hand spreader in smaller areas, or by standard ground or aerial dispersing methods for larger areas. Manufacturer recommends an interval of 7 to 14 days between applications.
