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.

- For shallow (less than 6" deep) standing water holding areas, 1 tablet treats up to 25 sq. ft. of surface area.
- For containers or water holding receptacles holding more than 6" of water, apply 1 tablet to treat up to 50 gallons (192 liters) per container.
Suggested Uses: Use as a larvicide to control container breeding mosquitoes.
This Product Controls These Pests or Diseases: Use to kill the larvae of container breeding mosquitoes, e.g., Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus. These mosquitoes are known to transmit Dengue Fever and the Chikungunya and Zika viruses.
Draining and discarding small containers that hold water is the most effective method for preventing mosquito breeding. To treat artificial water containers that cannot be drained or discarded and natural standing-water sites: Use 1 tablet to treat up to 50 gallons (192 liters) or 25 sq. ft. For continuous action, keep tablet immersed in water. Reapply after 60 days.
- Can be applied as a preventative action (pre-flood treatment) before sites fill with water.
- Can be used in sites that intermittently fill with water; Natular DT's slow release layer will stop working when dry and begin working again when re-wetted.
- Do not apply directly to treated, finished drinking water supply systems or to waters that drain into public waterways.
Environment: Use in artificial water containers including drums, storage tanks, rooftop catchments, ornamental fish ponds, unused swimming pools, ornamental pots or fountains, water gardens, flower pots or planters, rain barrels, urns, standing water, tree holes, pool and boat covers, roof gutters, floor drains, old tires, tire tracks, pot holes and other manmade and natural depressions.
