Place & Go Mosquito Control – Highly Effective Larvicidal Tablets

This ground-breaking product combines ease of use with uncompromising efficacy to kill mosquito larvae where they grow - in containers and standing water. Do you worry about the disease that mosquitoes carry like Dengue Fever or the Chikungunya and Zika viruses? Simply plop a tablet in the water and let your mosquito worries dissolve away.

Natular DT uses Spinosad (a naturally occurring bacterium) as its active ingredient. Spinosad (Saccharopolyspora spinose) is a potent control agent; it affects the function of the insect's nicotinic acetylcholine receptors in a way that causes continuous nervous impulses. This constant stimulation quickly breaks down the nervous system of the insect causing paralysis and death. With these tablets, Spinosad is introduced to the insect by ingestion and by contact.

These small (less than 1/2" in diameter), bi-layer tablets use a patented dual-release action to ensure both a quick kill and continuous control. The first layer is effervescent; these bubbles help dissolve and spread the first dosage in 60 seconds and will begin killing larvae within 24 hours. The second layer dissolves much more slowly over the next 60 days. For continual control it is important to keep the tablet submerged in water; if it dries out, it will stop working. However, it will resume working if it is re-wetted.
