Altosid Pro G Mosquito Larvicide, manufactured by Zoecon, is an effective IGR (insect growth regulator) product for mosquito control as it works to stop a new generation of pesky mosquitoes from growing and creating problems.

This granular product works to disrupt the life cycle of larvae mosquitoes through the active ingredient (S)-Methoprene 1.5%, which effectively kills mosquitoes before they hatch or makes them genetically deformed so they can't reproduce.

Altosid Pro G Mosquito Larvacide offers mosquito control in your backyard and other labeled area with extended residual control, providing up to 30 days of protection from diseases carrying mosquitoes in standing water.

Tools Needed

Altosid Pro G Mosquito Larvacide comes ready to use with its convenient shaker top for easier application, thus no additional application tools are needed. If you do decide to measure the product with food utensils like tablespoons or measuring cups, then DO NOT USE AFTER USE WITH INSECTICIDES.

You will need to wear personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gloves and safety glasses to avoid coming into contact with the product material.

How to Use

Altosid Pro G in action

  • Step 1: Analyze your yard and observe areas where you have seen stagnant water or water accumulation. Determine how much Altosid Pro G Mosquito Larvacide to use by measuring the square footage of the waters surface area or dry land site where water accumulates and water volume. To find square footage, measure the length and width of the treatment area in feet then multiply them together (length X width = square footage). To find water volume, measure the length, width, and depth of the labeled water site then multiply (length X width X depth = water volume). Depending on the treatment area surface area/square footage (which is considered less than 2 ft. deep of water) or a dryland area where water usually accumulates and water volume, the application rates will vary. The lowest application rate is to use 1/4 tsp. of Altosid Pro G Mosquito Larvacide per 13 sq. ft. of surface area/treatment area and water volumes of 50 gallons. The highest application rate you can use is 1 cup of product per 2,400 sq. ft. of surface area/treatment area and water volumes of 9,600 gallons. For more specific rates, refer to the label.
  • Step 2: Empty and discard any small containers holding water to increase mosquito control. In instances where small containers cannot be overturned or discarded and for locations such as flower pots, old tires, urns, etc. use approximately 80 granules of product for every gallon of water. With a gloved hand, scatter the measured amount of Altosid Pro G Mosquito Larvacide evenly over the surface of water to be treated or where it usually floods in your yard.
  • Step 3: For continued mosquito control, apply the appropriate amount of Altosid Pro G Mosquito Larvacide every 30 days throughout the active mosquito season.

Where to Use

Altosid Pro G Mosquito Larvacide should ideally be applied in water where mosquitoes breed in non-crop areas and crop-areas. Examples of crop areas include: irrigated croplands, pastures, rangeland, vineyards, rice fields (domestic and wild), date palm, citrus, fruit, nut orchards, berry fields and bogs. This product may be applied non-crop areas like snow pools, salt and tidal marshes, freshwater swamps and marshes (cattail, red cedar, white maple marshes), woodland pools and meadows, dredging spoil sites, drainage areas, ditches, wastewater treatment facilities, livestock runoff lagoons, retention ponds, harvested timber stacks, swales, storm water drainage areas, sewers, catch basins, tree holes, animal watering troughs, waterholding receptacles (e.g., tires, urns, flower pots, cans, and other containers), and other natural and manmade water-holding depressions.

Altosid Pro G Mosquito Larvacide can also be applied to dry land sites where it normally floods intermediately.

When to Use

Use Altosid Pro G Mosquito Larvacide when mosquitoes are active especially after rainfall when there may be a lot of different areas around your yard where water has accumulated such as bird bath, puddles, ditches, old tires etc.

Complements the dunks
I use this along with mosquito dunks for my camp. The dunks go in the water; this goes on the damp areas of the ground near the water. Appears to work since mosquitoes generally aren't bad. Need to find something for those flies though lol

Altosid PRO G Mosquito Larvacide
We start using this product around the end of February beginning of March around the areas that hold water, even if they're dry, and keep treatment going through the season. So far as we've been using it, it's worked great.

Questions and Answers
  1. Q:Your office recommended this as part of Talstar, ExciteR, Archer to use in my fogger for mosquitoes. Does this mix in for fogger or for separate application? Not sure why it was recommended if not used in fogger.
    4/10/22
    A:I would not use in a fogger. Use Mosquito Mist Ultra. That’s what I use and it’s amazing - I toss the Altzoid and toss in the wet/moist areas.

  3. Q:Are these mosquito products safe for all animals? Especially the one we need to put in the pond. We have horses and dogs that drink from it.
    4/19/20
    A:I hope someone answers this. I have two small dogs that like to drink water from an old pond that I’m trying to get removed from my property (I just moved in). Until I can get it removed, I need to treat it for mosquitos

  4. Q:Can you deleate this in water then use sprayer to spray?
    8/10/16
    A:This product is designed to be applied as it is. If you are looking for a growth regulator that can be used in a sprayer I recommend using Tekko Pro. This is a dual action growth regulator that has a great residual and can be used indoors and outdoors. https://www.solutionsstores.com/tekko-pro-igr-insect-growth-regulator
