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. Mozzie stop granules or bits are perfect for sprinkling in under trees which are very hard to treat because water pools in very small amounts, granules are great for this, treat once a week or after rain for best effects. 

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 Bits Granules Work?

Mozzie Stop bits and dunks 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 (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. 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 usually 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 (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.


Mozzie Stop Dunks and Bti Granule Mosquito Bits

We have two formulations including 'Dunks' and Granule Mosquito Bits (200G) suitable for most infestation situations. We'd be happy to help you select the most ideal solution for your mosquito problem. Please send us an enquiry.
Apply Bti to areas of mosquito larvae populations to obtain a quick knock down effect of mosquito larvae. Fewer larvae means fewer biting adults. Bti liquid can be applied ever few days to minimise population numbers. Dunks should be applied once a month and Granule Bits applied every 7-14 days throughout the mosquito breeding season.

Users of mosquito dunks, mosquito granules, powdered and Liquid Bti  should wash hands with soap thoroughly after using and avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing.
Liquid Bti breaks down rapidly in the environment and is only effective for up to 48 hours against mosquito larvae. Mosquito dunks and Bti Mosquito Bits have slow release formulation and will last 7-14 days (Mosquito bits), and 30 days (Mosquito Dunks) under normal environmental conditions.
