Mode of Action:

The larvae ingest the VectoLex WDG insecticide, consisting of Bs spores produced by the bacteria. Only when activated by the larva’s specific gut PH and enzymes, do the spores become toxic, causing damage to the gut of the mosquito. Mortality rate is dependent on consumption of the Bs by 1st through early 4th instar larvae. The product is quick acting and highly effective against a number of mosquito species and its long term residual makes it ideal for use in a wide number of permanent aquatic habitats.
