Mozzie Stop Mosquito Dunks - Four Pack
Mosquito larvae can be found in almost any location where there is water. Your backyard has lots of natural (and probably artificial) containers that mosquitoes love to breed in. New Zealand has numerous species of mosquitoes which bite during the day and night, click here and have a look at the mosquito species profiles
for more information.
How Do Mozzie Stop Mosquito Dunks Work?
Mozzie Stop contains Bti
- Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis
, a group of bacteria used for the biological control of mosquito larvae (1st instar - to early 4th instar). Bti
produces a toxin in the gut of the mosquito larvae, which destroys the larvae gut lining causing death, usually within 12 hours. 4th Instar larvae and pupae are non-feeding and thus won't be affected by Bti
How to use Mozzie Stop Mosquito Dunks?
The Mozzie Stop Mosquito Dunks have a residual of up to 30 days (varies according to surrounding conditions). The Mosquito Dunks are eaten by the mosquito larvae and slowly release the Bti
into the water column for the mosquito larvae to eat.
Once a month leave a floating mosquito dunk in each place where water collects around your home. Mosquito larvae feed on the dunks material and are killed by the Bti toxin.
Any Mozzie Stop dunks which dry out will usually start working again when they become wet and unused dunks will remain active indefinitely if stored appropriately (in sealed container, cool, dark and dry conditions). You can break the dunks into smaller pieces for smaller water volumes.
This product has been repackaged to provide smaller quantities suitable for the household. Please follow manufacturers instructions. We can help if you need further advise!
