easy TRAP Mozzie Bits – The safe, easy and effective way to kill developing mosquito, fungus gnat and sandfly larvae before they become breeding, biting adults! Non-toxic to humans, fish, beneficial bacteria, aquatic life, pets and vegetations. Also available slow release dunks, used as a long term preventative and control (See”You may also like” below).
Contains: Bacillus thuringiensis subspecies israelensis (The same active ingredient present in Vectobac and Nil Nat yet at a fraction of the cost!
Can be used in: Fish ponds, hydroponic reservoirs and any standing body of water where mosquitos, sandflies and fungus gnats may breed. Fungus gnat larvae can also be present in moist soil. Check out the Mozzie Dunks also as a slow release preventative.
Hydroponics and Soil: An eco-friendly biological way of controlling Fungus Gnats, which are small black sandfly like insects, that in their larvae stage, eat the roots of your plants causing stunted growth and mal-nutrition. You may not notice damage to the leaves of your plants, however, if you see sandflies in your grow room or greenhouse then chances are fungus gnat larvae are present at the root zone. The dunks can also be used as a preventative
Use in Ponds etc: Sprinkle one teaspoon per 2.5 sq. metre or one tablespoon per 7.5 sq. metres over the surface of containerised standing water found near the home, such as: bird baths * flower pots * tree holes * unused swimming pools * rain barrels * roof guttering * animal watering troughs * water gardens * vases * ponds * ditches * pool covers * ornamental fountains * garden cans * wheel barrows * flood areas. (instructions from box)
Use in Hydroponics: 20 gm per 500 litres added to the nutrient tank (our recommended dosages) – put in a mesh bag or pantihose sock as the media the bacteria are living on is not dissolvable! If you put them in a mesh bag then you can remove the bag after 14 days as the bacteria will be free floating and will no longer be present on the media they were once on (Less mess this way).
For Soil: Sprinkle them over the soil approximately 1 chip per 5cm square then water the plant to allow the bacteria to wake up. Note the media chips do not dissolve as the bacteria are living on and within the media chips.
QUESTION: I want to try your “Mozzie Dunk” and “Mozzie Bits” products, they sound like a great idea! But which one should I use??
Good question! Both the “Dunks” and the “Bits” use the same active ingredient (Bacillus thuringiensis subspecies israelensis) so they are both as effective as each other.
However, the “Bits” are faster acting than the dunks. This is because the granules sink through the water column quicker, killing mosquito larvae within hours. The “Dunks” offer a slower release, and as a result tend to be more effective for a longer period of time (“Bits” generally up to 14 days whilst the “Dunks” will continue killing mosquito larvae for up to 30 days or more). So I suggest that if you notice mosquito larvae starting to hatch now, use the Bits for a “quick kill” and then ongoing use of the Dunks will ensure they don’t come back!
