LONG-LASTING, EFFECTIVE, AND ECO-FRIENDLY SOLUTION

Mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water or areas prone to flooding. The larval stage of a mosquito, which survives exclusively in aquatic environments, is the focus of Mosquito Dunks. This microbial larvicide uses a bacterial-active ingredient to target and control the development of larvae. Upon placement in standing water, the Dunks float and gradually release Bti (Bacillus thuringiensis subspecies israeliensis), a natural soil-borne bacterium.

When mosquito larvae in the water consume this bacterium, they are rapidly killed, preventing their emergence into disease-spreading adults. The unique aspect of this mosquito solution is its slow-release property. It continues releasing Bti for a duration of 30 days or more, offering a long-lasting, effective mosquito control strategy that specifically targets larvae without impacting other organisms. This makes this larvicide a powerful and environmentally considerate solution in combating mosquito-borne diseases.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q

How do the Dunks work?

A

They deploy a bacterium, BTI, which targets and eliminates mosquito larvae in standing water. When mosquito larvae ingest this bacterium, it acts as a larvicide, effectively killing them before they can mature into adults.

Q

How quickly do the Dunks start to work once applied?

A

These BTI dunks start working as soon as they come into contact with water. They begin releasing the bacterium immediately, with a noticeable decrease in mosquito larvae populations within 24-48 hours. For maximum effectiveness, replace every 30 days to ensure continued control of the mosquito population.

Q

Can Mosquito Dunks be used in fish ponds without harming the fish?

A

Yes, they’re suitable for use in fish ponds. The active ingredient, Bti, specifically targets mosquito larvae without harming fish, making it an ideal solution for keeping mosquitoes out of ponds and preventing harm to aquatic life.

Q

Are Mosquito Dunks effective against all types of mosquitoes?

A

Yes, they’re effective in eliminating many species of mosquitoes. The Bti bacterium affects all mosquito larvae that consume it, making this mosquito larvicide a versatile solution for mosquito control in environments where water may collect and breed mosquitoes.

Q

Are the Dunks safe around animals and pets?

A

Yes, Mosquito Dunks are safe for use around animals and pets. They’re approved for use in areas where animals drink and bathe, such as birdbaths and animal watering troughs. The active ingredient, Bti, specifically targets mosquito larvae and does not harm other living beings, including pets, fish, birds, and beneficial insects.

Q

How long are the BTI Dunks effective?

A

A single mosquito larvicide dunk remains effective for at least 30 days, providing sustained mosquito larvae control. Its slow-release formula ensures continuous release of the bacterium Bti into the water, preventing mosquito larvae from maturing into biting adults.

Q

What quantities do you offer?

A

DIY Pest Warehouse offers Mosquito Dunks in various packs, including a pack of 2 Dunks, 6 Dunks, and 20 Dunks. For larger application needs, there is a Master case with 100 Dunks. Each Dunk can treat up to 100 square feet of water surface, regardless of the water depth, and can be broken into smaller pieces for treating smaller volumes of water, such as birdbaths or rain barrels.
