Product Overview

Mosquito Bits is a highly selective microbial insecticide (BTI) effective against mosquitoes in a variety of habitats. Kills the larvae of mosquitoes that transmit West Nile Virus, Zika Virus, Chikungunya, Encephalitis, Malaria, and Dengue Fever. Spread over the surface of water to release the biological mosquito larvicide. This larvicide gradually settles in the water where it is eaten by mosquito larvae growing there. The BITS will give a quick kill of existing mosquito larvae within 24 hours. Re-apply every 7 to 14 days for maximum control. Mosquito Bits are approved for application to areas that contain aquatic life, fish and plants. BITS may also be applied to areas used by or in contact with humans, animals, horses, livestock, pets, birds or wildlife. Apply to standing water found near the home such as water gardens, tree holes, stock tanks, animal watering troughs, rain barrels, bird baths, roof gutters, etc. Perfect for areas where standing water cannot easily be controlled such as fallen leaves, swampy areas, and vehicle tracks in turf. Sprinkle over bromeliads, pitcher plants, and other areas where small amounts of water turn into mosquito breeding grounds. Harmless to plants, pets, beneficial insects, honeybees, fish or wildlife. Mosquito Bits are also approved and labeled as a biological control for fungus gnat larvae in planters and soils. Kills fungus gnat larvae in soil without synthetic toxins.

is this good to use on yards

i have no standing water but mosquitos are horrible and need something to put on my yard
Asked by: dee
This is for mosquito larvae in standing water. If you don't have standing water, you don't need this product. If you have adult flying mosquitoes, you may try products to get rid of them such as some of the fogging products.

Can I sprinkle this on my lawn?

I really don't have standing water in my yard, but I do have a lot of shade and there is a retention pond in the vicinity that I can't really do anything about. thanks
Asked by: NewHomeOwner
You would want to use this in standing water to control mosquito larvae. Putting it on the lawn won't do anything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Very Well I have personally used this product since 2012. I live in an apartment complex that has a park on one side and a small creek on the other. I have a lot of plants of various sizes (<50). I use between 1/8 to 1/2 teaspoon of Mosquito Bits in each pots saucer to prevent mosquitoes from reproducing. It works every time, all the time. I highly recommended this product to all my friends and landscape design clients.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mosquito Bit was the best. I bought this product to try and it is great. We have been getting a lot of rain in Southeast Texas lately. I had a 5 gallon bucket about 3/4 full. It was full of mosquito larvae. I added about a teaspoon in the bucket and they died instantly. I watched them cover the bottom of the bucket and within seconds they squiggled to the top of the bucket. By the time they got to the top they were dead. I added to the trays under my outside potted plants and instant death. What I didn't know was the dogs were going out and drinking the standing water in them. When my wife told me they liked drinking outside more than out of their water bowl I panicked. But to my surprise it did not phase them at all. So now I don't worry about it and it still has not affected them. They have annual tests at the vets and they were found in perfect health. Blood test came back normal. For what it cost which isn't much for how it works I will continue using it.
