In areas where you cannot control water standing or in these areas where water cannot be removed you can treat constant peddled areas with BTI. Bti is considered the most environmentally friendly way to control mosquito larva from becoming adults since it only targets the mosquito larva protecting fish, birds, beneficial insects and pollinators along with people and pets.

BTI Mosquito Briquets are a slow release larvicide meaning it only kills the larva before it becomes an adult. BTI conveniently floats right on the water surface. BTI briquets can be used in virtually in any standing water site where mosquito larvae grow.

BTI (or bacillus thuringiensis israelensis, a natural mosquito-killing biocontrol agent) Don’t let that term scare you it’s a bacteria that will only kill the mosquito larva.

BTI will continue to be released into the water for a period of 30 days or more, providing continuous kill. Each briquet will treat up to 100 square feet of surface water regardless of depth.

BTI can be used in bird baths, old automobile tires, rain barrels, ponds, abandoned or unused swimming pools (particularly above ground types), ditches, tree holes, roof gutters for collecting rainwater, flower pots, animal watering troughs, waste water treatment plants, elevator shafts, basements that flood, sump pumps and any drainage areas within buildings.

archer igr

Insect growth regulators (IGRs)like Archer IGR Pyridine 1.3% are pesticides that don’t usually kill the mosquitoes but instead affects the ability of mosquito larvae to grow and mature into an adult mosquito.

IGRs either block the mosquito’s ability to turn into an adult or cause it to change into an adult before it is physically able to reproduce. If immature mosquitoes are not able to molt into reproductive adults mosquitoes, then the population will eventually die out. Some call IGRs “birth control” for mosquitoes .
