Preventative Mosquito Control Kills Mosquito Larvae
Methoprene granules prevent adult mosquitoes from emerging into biting adults.
Preventing mosquito populations in any given area is far more effective
and less expensive than trying to control the biting pests in their adult
stage. There are situations when using adulticides for flying mosquitoes
is necessary. For these situations a fogging solution or spray solution is
needed. The best pest control involves eliminating as many mosquito
breeding grounds as possible.
Methoprene Granules Kill Mosquitoes for 21 to 30 Days
For those areas where eliminating water that harbors mosquitoes, a mosquito larvicide is needed. Methoprene Mosquito Granules contain an IGR that inhibits the growth of certain insects in their immature stages. When mosquito larvae are exposed to Methoprene, they do not die. These wrigglers (as they are sometimes called) seem to be unaffected when observed. The effect of the product shows in the pupal stage. In this stage the immature mosquitoes normally develop into adult insects and immerge to start their biting, reproducing life cycle. However, the young insects that have come into contact with the unique IGR material will not survive past the pupae stage and never become adult biting pests.
