Don't let mosquitoes breed in your rain barrel. Treat your Aquabarrel® rain
barrel with Mosquito
Dunks®. These EPA-approved, all-natural products kill
baby mosquitoes in the water, before they’re old enough to bite. Mosquito Dunks®
release “B.t.i” (Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis bacteria) into the
water. B.t.i. is harmless to people, fish, birds, pets, and other animals, but
deadly—and delicious—to baby mosquitoes (larvae).
Mosquito Dunks® when wet, release a biological larvicide that
is eaten by the baby mosquitoes (larvae). Mosquito larvae that eat the larvicide
are dead within 24 hours. These products are effective even after repeated wetting
Mosquito Dunks® also prevent mosquito infestations (the source of West Nile and Eastern equine
encephalitis) from developing in other sources of standing water, such as compost
piles, rain gardens, bird baths, flower pots, tree holes, water gardens, roof
gutters, and animal watering troughs.
