The active ingredient in Mosquito Killer is Bacillus thuringiensis subspecies israelensis (BTI). BTI is a bacterium that is deadly to mosquito larvae but harmless to other living things. Mosquito Killer, a cob granular product suitable for aerial or ground application is a selective microbial insecticide effective against mosquito in a variety of habitats. When spread over the water surface, the Mosquito Killer releases 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. The Mosquito Killer will give a quick kill within 24 hours. Simply sprinkle at rates as low as 0.01-0.025gm per 1 litre of water. Recommended re-application interval is seven to fourteen days, although control for up to 30 days has been achieved under some conditions.
