Mosquito Control Around Water

Michigan is the water wonderland and during the summer months, that water means thousands of acres of mosquito breeding grounds.

There are health reasons to try to minimize the quantity of mosquitos that invade our living spaces - most notably West Nile Virus - but of course there are other concerns.

To get rid of mosquito larvae quickly the best method is to sprinkle Mosquito Bits in standing water throughout your property where the pests breed. This means birdbaths, creeks, water gardens, patio water gardens, places where puddles stay for long periods and other standing water areas.

The Mosquito bits will get rid of the mosquitos immediately. You should use the Mosquito bits with Mosquito Dunks, which will kill mosquito larvae for 30 days. Mosquito dunks are doughnut shaped products that float on water and slowly release bacillus thuringiensis, a natural pesticide that is lethal to mosquito larvae. Mosquito dunks are aethestically pleasing also.

Mosquito Bits is a microbial insecticide that is effective against mosquitoes. When spread over the water surface, the Bits release a biological mosquito larvicide at the water's surface. This larvicide gradually settles in the water where it is eaten by mosquito larvae growing there.

Mosquito Bits may be used in all types of standing water sites where mosquito larvae grow.

The Bits will give a quick kill within 24 hours.

Mosquito Dunks are registered for mosquito control use in all 50 States including Michigan, of course.
