No more mosquitoes with the Mosquito Dunks and Bits Combo pack. Mosquitoes are known to carry and transmit diseases and viruses including the West Nile and Equine Virus. Used by professionals for more that a decade, Mosquito Dunks and Mosquito Bits have proven their value in destroying mosquitoes by killing the larvae before they mature into biting adult pests. Sprinkled in any standing water, Mosquito Bits kills mosquitoes within 24 hours then a Mosquito Dunk will continue killing for 30 days. One Mosquito Dunk will effectively treat up to 100 square feet of surface water regardless of depth. Unused and dried out Dunks retain their potency indefinitely. That's a great shelf life.
Mosquito Dunks are manufactured using ingredients that are either mined or grown from the earth. The active ingredient is "Bacillus thuringiensis subspecies israelensis". This is a bacterium that is naturally occurring in nature. It is toxic to mosquito larvae, black fly larvae and filter fly larvae. To all other insects or animals it is protein.

Mosquitoes travel up to 5 miles. They are known to carry and transmit diseases and viruses including the West Nile and Equine Virus. Sprays can only kill adult stages of mosquitoes. They are tied to water where their young develop. The critical thing is that the water remains standing long enough for the larvae, called wigglers, to complete their development. Common pest mosquitoes lay their eggs on the water surface; some lay their eggs on the ground next to the water. This could include bird baths, old tires, rain barrels, streams, ponds, ditches, woodland pools, outdoor tubs, unused swimming pools, tree holes, flower pots, vases, roof gutters, sewage and industrial waste ponds, over irrigated or poorly leveled yards and pastures, or any other area or container where water collects and remains for periods of time. Mosquito eggs are very hardy and manage to live under almost all conditions, therefore, many species overwinter as eggs, others as larvae or adults. In warmer regions, breeding occurs year-around. The eggs hatch and become mosquito larvae which swim around eating and growing. In about a week they become full-grown mosquitoes and fly out of the water looking for someone to bite and then reproduce.
