A: Yes, you can use Mosquito Dunks in evaporative coolers. There will be no issues with your cat, as this is also recommended for use in animal watering troughs.
A: The Dunks slowly dissolve releasing the active ingredient - BTI. Once it dissolves enough, it will start releasing the BTI and will continue for 30 days or more. To quickly kill mosquito larvae present in standing water, treat will Mosquito Bits which is a quick kill and follow up with Mosquito Dunks for maintenance. Or to help get the BTI in the water quickly, pulverize a Dunk and place the crushed Dunk in the standing water. It will not last as long but will quickly kill the mosquito larvae currently in the water
A: Dunks are designed to dissolve very slowly and it is not unusual for them to last far longer than 30 days. The Dunks will only kill mosquito larvae in the water in which they are placed. Mosquitoes breed in standing water so to reduce mosquito populations it is important to remove or treat any areas of standing water no matter how small. There are many possible areas where mosquitoes may be breeding such as slightly clogged rain gutters, the ridges in corrugated drain pipes, small amounts of water in storm drains and irrigation control boxes, and from the neighbors who may not be as diligent in removing and treating water as you are. Find and treat those areas of standing water and you will finally greatly reduce your mosquito problems.
A: This product is used to treat areas of standing water to kill mosquito larvae. If you have water with visible mosquito larvae, we recommend treating that water with Mosquito Bits, a product with the same active ingredient that works as a quick kill for mosquito larvae. After that use the Dunks to maintain long term control over mosquito larvae in that standing water. This will work very well in August but keep in mind that this product does not kill the adult mosquitoes that are already around. To kill adult mosquitoes you would need to use a chemical spray specifically labeled for mosquito control use.
