How Do Mozzie Stop Mosquito Bits Granules 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 Bti Granule Bits?
The Mozzie Stop Mosquito Bits Granules (Aquabac 200G) have a residual of 7 - 14 days (varies according to surrounding conditions). The Mosquito bits when spread over the surface of containerised water release the biological mosquito larvicide - Bti, as they settle through the water column and are eaten by the mosquito larvae. Bti granules can be used in all types of containerised standing water sites, and under shady tree areas, where mosquitoes like to live. The Bti granules usually kill all the feeding larvae within 24 hours.
(More mature fourth instar larvae may no longer be feeding and thus won't be affected by the Bti). The granules will remain effective for 7-14 days, however for a longer more sustained residual control in pooled water, we recommend the Mozzie Stop Mosquito Dunks.
Once every seven to fourteen days (depending on the mosquito problem you have) sprinkle approximately 1-teaspoon of Mozzie Stop Bti Granule Bits per 2m2
water surface in each place where water collects around your home. Mosquito larvae feed on the Bti material and are killed by the Bti toxin. A little goes a long way, and a Bromiliad plant may only need 2-4 granules every week. The mosquito larvae will die within 24-48 hours, and only newly hatched larvae will be exposed to the remaining Bti, its much better to treat every 7-14 days so as not to waste the Mozzie Stop Bti granules.
Any Mozzie Stop granules (AQUABAC 200G) which are unused will remain active for months if stored appropriately (in sealed container, cool, dark and dry conditions).
Please follow manufacturers instructions on the label. We can help if you need further advise!
These granules are also suitable for Fungus gnat control - simply sprinkle the granules over the afftected potting material and water in.
