Insect Growth Regulators and Naturals
You can feel comfortable using insect growth regulators (IGRs) and naturals for complete mosquito control in clients’ backyards, patios, and open spaces. Altosid® larvicides are IGRs that prevents adult emergence by suspending mosquito development at the pupal stage, leading to death due to age or predation. The active ingredient, (S)-Methoprene, has an excellent LD50 profile resulting in low environmental impact with no bioaccumulation. Naturals are botanically based insecticides (or 25b Exempt)that offer natural adult mosquito control for the environmentally conscious consumer. The Essentria® line up sprays and concentrates use active ingredients that include rosemary oil, peppermint oil, geraniol, clove oil, and thyme oil that can be applied with little to no risk to humans or the environment.
Altosid® Liquid Larvicide Mosquito Growth Regulator can be used as a pretreatment to potential mosquito breeding locations, offering complete control.
A cost-effective solution for controlling mosquito populations all season long, Altosid® 150-Day Briquets control larvae and prevent the emergence of adult mosquitoes without negatively impacting the surrounding ecosystem.
A 25(b) exempt pest control solution, Essentria® All Purpose Insect Concentrate offers broad-spectrum control and is ideal for mosquito protection in sensitive application sites.
