“Killing larvae that hatch from eggs reduces mosquito populations and may reduce the risk of getting infected with Zika, dengue, chikungunya, or West Nile spread by mosquitoes. Bacillus thuringiensis subspecies israelensis (Bti) bacteria is found in soil. Bti is used as a larvicide to kill larvae before they can grow into adults that can bite people. Bti has been used for mosquito control for more than 30 years.”

Summit B.T.I Briquets are floating sustained-release larvicide for long-term control of mosquito and psychodid fly larvae. Using biological control of mosquitoes &psychodid flies as directed on the label will not cause harm to people, honeybees, animals, and the environment.
Mosquito Dunks float on water and will keep on working for 30 days or longer under typical environmental conditions. While floating, they slowly release a long-term, biological mosquito larvicide at the waters surface. This larvicide gradually settles in the water where it is eaten by mosquito larvae growing there. Mosquito Dunks may be used in all standing water sites where mosquito larvae grow. Alternate wetting and drying will not reduce their effectiveness.
These briquets/dunks may be used in all types of mosquito breeding areas. To prevent briquets/dunks from being flushed out of certain treatment sites, they can be anchored using string tied through the hole in the center or staked in place.
Near household, such as standing water 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 or any other locations near the household where water collects and remains for periods of time.
For use in areas that collect water from time to time areas such as elevator shafts, basements that flood, sump pumps and any drainage areas within buildings. Please refer product label for more information.
