BTI Mosquito Briquettes

Free Shipping on All Orders

BTI Mosquito Briquets are a sustained-release larvicide that conveniently floats right on the water surface. These briquets can be used in virtually any standing water site where mosquito larvae grow. As the briquets float, BTI (or bacillus thuringiensis israelensis, a natural mosquito-killing biocontrol agent) is slowly released at the water’s surface and gradually settles in the water where it is consumed mosquito larvae.

Target Pests

Mosquitoes and Psychodid Flies and their larvae

For Use In

bird baths old automobile tires rain barrels ponds abandoned or unused swimming pools (particularly above ground types) tree holes roof gutters for collecting rainwater flower pots animal watering troughs elevator shafts basements that flood sump pumps and any drainage areas within buildings

Application

These briquets/dunks may be used in all types of mosquito breeding areas. To prevent briquets/dunks from being flushed out of certain treatment sites, they can be anchored using string tied through the hole in the center or staked in place.

Pre-flood treatment: If the briquets/dunks are applied to dry areas which are known or suspected to become breeding sites when flooded, such as woodland pools and abandoned swimming pools, the briquets will float to the surface when flooding occurs and start releasing the active Bti material. Alternate wetting and drying will not reduce their effectiveness.

See label for all application rates

Summit B.t.i. BRIQUETS are formulated to release effective levels of Bti for a period of 30 days or more under typical environmental conditions.

 

The floating action of the briquets will ensure that active material is released at the surface as well as gradually settle to the bottom.

To prevent briquets from being flushed out of certain treatment sites, they can be anchored using string tied through the hole in the center or staked in place. Summit B.t.i. BRIQUETS can also be used for pre-flood treatment.

APPLICATION RATES Mosquito Larvae: Flooded larvae breeding sites: Use one (1) Summit B.t.i BRIQUET for up to 100 sq. ft. of surface area, regardless of depth. In water with a high organic content, such as sewage disposal systems or waste lagoons, the application rate may have to be increased to as much as four (4) times the normal dosage based upon evaluation by the user.

 

When larval populations are high, aquatic vegetation dense, or the water highly polluted at the time of briquet use, pre-treatment with SUMMIT MOSQUITO BITS is recommended. The briquet will then suppress larval development for up to 30 days or more. Some larvae which hatch after briquet application may partially develop before dying. Allow a minimum of 48 hours for their control.

 

Pre-Flood treatment: Apply one (1) Summit B.t.i. BRIQUET to each 100 sq. ft. of dry bed surface which is known or suspected breeding site when flooded.

 

Evaporative Coolers: Apply one (1) Summit B.t.i. BRIQUET to each 100 sq. ft. of Cooler box or for smaller Coolers refer to the table below for application rate. Outdoor Use around the Household to kill Mosquito Larvae: Summit B.t.i. BRIQUETS can be broken into portions for use in many outdoor applications near the household, such as standing water in bird baths, old automobile tires, rain barrels, ponds, abandoned or unused swimming pools (particularly above ground types), ditches, tree holes, roof gutters for collecting rainwater, flower pots or any other location near the household where water collects and remains for periods of time.

 

Summit B.t.i. BRIQUETS can be broken and used as shown in the following table, the amount dependent upon the surface area of water in the treatment site.

 

Preflood treatment around the Household: Apply Summit B.t.i. BRIQUETS to any dry surface which is known to become flooded after a rain. Use the correct amount in accordance with the above dosage table.

 

Psychodid Fly Larvae (Filter Flies, Sewage Flies, Drain Flies): Waste Water Treatment Plants: Place Summit B.t.i. BRIQUETS in a perforated basket, such as a minnow bait basket, and suspend the basket in the waste water stream before the water enters the trickling filter.

 

Keep basket continuously filled with Briquets to ensure a steady flow of Bti into the filter. The number of Briquets needed for continuous, effective treatment in each facility will be dependent upon the volume and flow rate of the stream. This will have to be determined by the user.

How about a swamp cooler would they be sustainable and a swamp cooler? Sometimes I don't use the cooler for a week or two at a time and the next thing you know I got little bugs or mosquitoes flying around my apartment
Rob on Apr 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: While Bactimose is a natural bacteria we would not recommend it for a cooler that is going to have consumables in it as it will leave a residue. The best thing you can do is just pour out the cooler when storing for a long time. Mosquitoes need water so if you eliminate that then you wont have any mosquitoes coming from there.

Great Product
These Mosquito Dunks work great. The only negative is that as it dissolves and falls apart is does get a little messy. Otherwise I highly recommend them and the price is great. I will continue to use them.

MOSQUITO DUNKS
I have two ponds in my yard one with Koi and one that was just standing water. I placed these Dunks in the water and no more bugs. But remember to replace them every four weeks or so. Because they only work on Larva stage.

Dunks work
Our place has creeks on two side during the winter that mostly dry up in the summer, leaving a lot of wet areas for mosquitoes to breed. We have used dunks for at least five years with great results. Within a day we notice the difference. Our area has mosquito carried heartworm that infects dogs, so we are happy to reduce the numbers as much as possible. We have never had any trouble with damage to birds, dogs or wildlife from using the dunks.
