Mosquito Bits are a highly selective microbial insecticide effective against mosquitos that carry West Nile Virus, Encephalitis, Malaria, Dengue Fever. When spread over the surface of standing water, 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. A single application can achieve 90% kill within an hour and nearly 100% kill within 24 hours.
Sprinkle one teaspoon per 25 square feet or one tablespoon per 75 square feet (1/2 lb per 2178 square feet) over the surface of the containerized standing water found around the home. Employ at 7 to 14 day intervals between applications. Longer periods of mosquito suppression will be achieved with the subsequent use of Mosquito Dunks.
Mosquito Bits can be applied to areas that contain aquatic life, fish, and plants. May be applied to areas used by or in contact with humans, animals, horses, livestock, pets, birds or wildlife. Do not apply to finished treated human drinking water sources.
Apply to containerized standing water such as: water gardens, bird baths, flower pots, rain barrels, tree holes, roof gutters, unused swimming pools, old automobile tires, animal watering troughs.
Fungus Gnat Control: Sprinkle or spread the granules over the soil until the area is covered. Water was you would normally. The watering will release the Bti into the soil where the fungus gnat larvae will feed on it and die. Repeat this process weekly for 3 weeks. If fungus gnats reappear start process over, sprinkling granules on surface and watering again for a three week period.
