    Works great!

    By Beth on 05/02/2017

    This stuff works very well in areas that have shallow water. I have used it in my ditches and around the yard that has a tendency to collect water. I have even used it in the grass that seems to stay wet that is near our creek. We used this product in conjunction with the Mosquito Dunks last year and we noticed such a big difference in the amount of Mosquitoes that we had to get it again this year. Worth the money.

Q
Why does the Summit Mosquito Bits label say "Also controls fungus gnats"?

The answer to a previous question stated that the Mosquito Bits are only for Mosquito control?

A

We contacted the manufacturer, and they have recently added Fungus Gnats to their Mosquito Bits Label. You will be treating the soil with the Mosquito granules and when you water the granules in. This will release the active ingredient BTI into the soil so when the fungus gnat larvae feeds on the treated soil they will die.
