Can Altosid Pro-G Mosquito Larvicide to be used to treat mosquito eggs in mulch?

Can this product be sprinkled into mulched areas in the backyard to help prevent the growth of mosquitoes? Will it be effective? We have a mulched area in the yard which can obviously retain moisture - want to know if this can help in those areas. We use Talstar for plants/shade/other areas.


Yes, you could potentially use Altosid Pro-G Mosquito Larvicide around mulch beds or other areas where water may collect. It would be best to make this application just before or after rainfall so that it will dissolve in the collected areas. Altosid Pro-G will remain effective in water for approximately 30 days.
