    Not expensive and appears to be working

    By Valerie on 06/10/2018

    Here in North Central Wisconsin we had 2 ft of late April snow, followed by heavy rainfalls. The marsh on our property was completely flooded and looked like an extension of the lake we live on. Then in May, it started getting hot really early! Not particularly happy about the spectre of large numbers of mosquitoes breeding in the standing water, I put out these packets. We didn't do any scientific trapping and counting, but we don't have overwhelming numbers of mosquitoes either. I'm going to go with positive thinking and say these packets worked for us.

Q
Can the pouches of Bonide Mosquito Beater WSP be cut open and the contents be sprinkled into bromeliads to control larvae there?

The contents of the pouches seems more finely granulated than the "Mosquito Bits" product. Is that true? Can the pouches be cut open and the contents be sprinkled into bromeliads to control larvae there?

A

Bonide Mosquito Beater WSP are water soluble packets that are designed and labeled to control mosquito larvae in containerized water only. To target mosquitoes on plants, you could use Bonide Mosquito Beater Natural RTS which is a ready-to-spray formulation safe for most areas and plants. You can also browse all our Mosquito Control Products here.

Q
Is Bonide Mosquito Beater WSP treated water safe to use on orchid plants?

I treated my rain barrels with this before asking if it's safe to use on orchids. They are very sensitive to a variety of different chemicals, natural and man made. These orchids are very expensive and I need verification of it's safety.

A

Per the label, Bonide Mosquito Beater WSP can be used in all types of containerized standing water sites where mosquitoes breed such as livestock watering troughs, containerized water gardens, flower pots, rain barrels, roof gutters, bird baths, tree holes, unused swimming pools or spas, discarded automobile tires, and any other containerized location around the home or other buildings where water can collect [and form a breeding ground for mosquitoes] and remain for extended periods. DO NOT use in finished, treated human drinking water sources (see label for specific use sites).  For more specific information regarding your orchids, you may contact the manufacturer at (315) 736-8231.

Q
Does Bonide Mosquito Beater WSP work for other aquatic insects?

Does Bonide Mosquito Beater work for other aquatic insects? Do the bacteria attack other aquatic flying insects - mayflies etc? We have a major gnat-swarm problem. We sprayed beneficial nematodes (Steinernema feltiae) on the landscaping, but then saw the hundreds of larva in the ponds. Do the nematodes function in water on such insects?

A
The Bonide Mosquito Beater WSP has only been tested for mosquito larva so we really don't know how well it would control any other aquatic insect larva. We are unaware of any product that is being marketed for gnat larva in water. We do not think the nematodes can be applied to water as they are a soil dwelling organism. Sorry we could not be of more help!
