Mosquito larviciding in many countries around the globe is generally based on short-residual biorational products using one of two active ingredients: Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. israelensis or (S)-methoprene. These larvicides can provide cost-effective solutions for control of single-brood floodwater mosquitoes. However, each of these active ingredients delivers optimal activity against different mosquito larval stages. As a result, multiple products are often used to manage changing scenarios
Valent BioSciences’ experience in developing value-added products with combinations of active ingredients via its proprietary BioFuse™ technology led to the industry’s most flexible mosquito larval control solution for single-brood mosquitoes: VectoPrime
VectoPrime™ offers abatement professionals superior operational flexibility with a wider application window across all instars and pre-flood. The ability to apply VectoPrime™ prior to flooding means you can plan ahead instead of having to react to changing environmental conditions, saving time and freeing up resources that would have been required for additional field surveillance and additional treatments. In addition, working with a single solution that kills all larval instars also allows you to streamline inventories and simplify replenishment.
In other words, you can start and end your week with the same solution.
